790Re: [tr-m] TR's Pets
- Feb 6, 2004to add to the list:
blue macaw named Eli Yale
raccoon named Allen
two ponies - Algonquin and General Grant (named for the pony TR & his
siblings had as children)
gray kitten named Tom Quartz (named for a cat in a Mark Twain story; Quentin
got into trouble for putting Tom Quartz in the bathtub and turning on the
Josiah the badger. Archie thought he was a great pet - he only bit your
hands & feet & never went for your face. Archie fed him potatoes & milk.
TR thought Josiah hissed like a tea-kettle & looked like a mattress with
Alice's pet snake Emily Spinach - green like spinach & thin like Aunt
Emily - she carried the snake in her purse.
There were other snakes, hamsters, guinea pigs, etc.
There was a pack of mixed-breed dogs at Sagamore Hill - they lived outdoors
and the kids referred to them as the "Heinz Pickle Dogs" - after Heinz 57
