    Walt Disney's pets?

    Does anyone know if Walt Disney had any pets? I've just been wondering lately...he seems like the type that would have a pet or two.

    I read a biography on him and it mentioned that he had a poodle named lady.

    A story I've read is that some of the Disney employees, as a prank, gave Walt a baby turtle and a supply of "special food" that would supposedly make it grow extra-fast. Then they began secretly replacing the turtle with progressively larger ones about once a week to make it look like it was growing. Walt was tickled pink...until they started reversing the process, giving the confusing appearance of a shrinking turtle. It was back to the original tiny turtle before Walt figured out what was going on.

    Did they get the idea from Roald Dahl?
    Yes, our world has indeed become a world of motion. We have engineered marvels that take us swiftly over land and sea, through the air, and into space itself. And still bolder and better ideas are yet to come. Ideas that will fulfill our age old dream to be free. Free in mind. Free in spirit. Free to follow the distant star of our ancestors to a brighter tomorrow. - World of Motion (1982-1996)
