Animals we share our lives with

I'd love to see pictures of your pets or wildlife in your area. Here are some kittens I am currently fostering. 3 1/2 weeks old. Came into the shelter with no momma so I'm it.

These are 4 of our 5 dogs. I don't have a pic of Torch who is the brother of the red dog in the photos but they look almost identical. The dog at the bottom is the mom of the "puppies" at the top.

Franklin Delano Cockatiel.JPG

Duffy is a Welsh Pembroke Corgi with a tail, which is somewhat unusual. He is almost 7 years old.

Franklin Delano Cockateil is 25 years old and I will probably have to put him in my will.

Both now departed, and living in an apartment dissuades us from getting another.

Our two current Shelties (Shetland Sheepdogs)...

We've had the breed 35+ years (over many, many dogs) and have been adopting rescue dogs over the last 5-6 years.

Princess (8 years) is on the left. Teddy (4 years - our current rescue) is on the right.

Let's not forget our faithful companions the flagellates:


Sharing your life with some of these babies is less than fun.

For some reason or other they seem annoyed today.....
