This story is a sequel to Trixie's Gettin' Back On Her Hooves

NOTE: This is canon with "Getting Back On Your Hooves/Trixie's Getting Back On Her Hooves"

After Winona has a run in with a skunk, Applejack does the natural thing and takes her to Fluttershy to be cleaned up. However, while taking care of the poor collie, Fluttershy realizes something; she doesn't know how Applejack got Winona in the first place. Curiosity gets the best of the timid pegasus and she asks. What she discovers not only reveals a lot about the little dog, but about Applejack as well.

Now curious as to what her other friend's pets mean to them, Fluttershy wonders about how Pinkie Pie and Rarity got their perfect companions as well.

This gave me some feels. Really good story. :3

This looks like it has promise. I like the way you did the flashback, not many writers include both the narration and the scene


Thanks! Glad it was emotional!


Thanks! I'm glad you liked that part!

It's been a while since a fic has managed to make me shed a tear.

Do continue this.


Poor AJ. I'll be watching for the next installment good sir!


Thanks! I'm glad I was able to make it emotional!


Yeah, poor thing. Your emoticon is very fitting.

Thanks! And thanks for the fav!

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.
That's something I've wondered- what happened to AJ's parents? We've seen Rarity's, Twilight's and Pinkies. Fluttershy and Rainbow's parents are likely up in Cloudsdale- but what about AJ?

And what did happen anyway? Other than an accident?

Either way, this is without a doubt one of the better MLP fics I have read.

Elder AJ Genration 1 AJ much? =3


Yep, that's the idea.

And thanks for the fav!

Five bits say that Pinkie will about Rarity's lack of cuteceañera andthought one.


Thanks for the comment!

And maybe, what else would Pinkie want to do after all?

This story is actually really good, if only that many people read it, it might be featured. :pinkiehappy:

The Pinkie Pie chapter will be the last one I suppose? Since we already know how Rainbow and Twilight got their pets- what about Angel? :pinkiegasp:



Angel will be last, Gummy is next. There might be a bonus chapter too.

How Fluttershy found Angel perhaps?

Valid point. How about a bonus chapter where Celestia tells Fluttershy where she found Philomena?

Roid Rage, or whatever you call him, taught Rarity how to fight? Hidden depths indeed, at first glance, you'd think he'd just be a brawler in a fight.

Really nice story.

*reads, working on a rock farm* I was wondering how magic Duel was gonna fit into all of this...and now for the fic...

GAAAAHHHHHH!!!! Just, to dang sweet

Should I read that other story now?

1954075 You mean Getting Back On Your Hooves? I'd recommend it, since this chapter happens after the ending of it, but it's not required, it just contains spoilers.

1954056 I'm actually planning to write a GBOYH version of Magic Duel as well. Glad you liked this chapter!

1954082 I'll read it when I get to it so I won't be as confused as I am now


Freakin sweet! I cant wait, I loved this and getting back on your hooves.

We heard about Applejack's, Rarity's, and Pinkie's pet story; she already knows Twilight's and Rainbow's pet story that leaves with Spike's and herself pet story.


Two words. Princess Celestia.

DAT... chapter.... You've hit Rarity characterization on the head.

1960712 1972005 Spike got Peewee and we kinda know that... but srlsy, we need:

Princess Celestia

2003142 Did Spike introduced Pee Wee to the Mane 6?

2003228 Hmm... Good point... but lets wait for the Just for Sidekicks episode first.

okay so we heard about everyones pet story except for how fluttershy got angel i Imagine thats something to be discussed at rarity's belated Cuteceañera

Isn't that guy from Battlestar: Galactica?


I don't know... I choose a random image :pinkiehappy:

needs a Trixie pet chapter


A excellent short story that explained very well the values of having a pet. Though you may want to correct the massively italicized part between Flashback and Celestia's letter, I'm not sure if that's supposed to be italicized.

I was having a pretty rough day today, and this cheered me up :twilightsmile:

I loved this story! It's just very heart warming and sweet. And now I can't help but smile and pet my cat as she purrs. Really thought that this was a very well done story. Occasionally your words seemed a little jumbled or a word was missing but over all a very well done story and has deserved my thumbs up and a favor.

Thanks for the great story. People forget sometimes just how important having a pet can be to some people. I'll always love animals more than people, it's just who I am, so reading this story put me into a great mood.:twilightsmile: Thanks.

I really can't say much more than that this story is pure d'awww concentrate :twilightsmile:
Loved it from the start till the end, really heartwarming piece :pinkiesmile:

The two (looked at) each (other) awkwardly and shyly tried to explain their point to the other, but were both too timid to get a word out in fear of hurting the other.

Note: I did find this funny because only Fluttershy would consider NOT knowing what to say is an argument.

The timid Pegasus helped (bathe) animals in the neighborhood around the forest where she and her mother lived. She finished with a dog, petting its head lightly…then saw the rather long line still waiting.

Note: I sent these corrections to Kendell. Sorry for not letting you know.
