Card #071 Opie has had a number of different pets over the years. They include: a dog named Gulliver; his lizard, Oscar; and Dickie the bird (the one that Aunt Bee accidentally let out of his cage).

He's also had a pet snake, a white mouse, a frog and a goldfish. He once raised three baby songbirds after he killed their mother (see BW CARD #109).

As far as we know, all owls under Andy's protective custody survived without ever being made into hoot owl pie by the Darling family.
