First pic is my rescue from a kill shelter (Max)
Second pic is my puggle Tyson
Third is my pug Scarface
Fourth is my very expensive, never would pay for like that again, pomeranian/pug mix (Chi Chi)
Bought him at Animart. Paid an arm and a leg. Dumb, but I still love him.
Our bearded dragon Spike.
Our cat Harley. Another shelter rescue.
Three horses, two Bernese Mountain Dogs that I show,Sherman is the puppy on my avatar, three cats: Blossom & Kramer are both inside kitties and rescues and BigFoot who is our barn kitty. He has 24 toes, hence the name.
Also have an African Grey parrot named Kiwi who is 2 1/2, I have had her since she was 16 weeks, I finished weaning her and Boo who is an Amazon that I rescued from abuse: he has one wing that was torn off and his feet were little malformed balls, now he can perch on his soft perch like a normal parrot. I have photos of Blossom the kitty, and Kiwi the parrot and the other Berner Sera.
OMG, wyominggrandma I LOVE bernese mountain dogs. So pretty!!
These are my children :)
**** Dog (DD) is my baby, the only dog that comes in the house. She was originally supossed to be my friends dog but she stuck to me and has been there since. She has survived being run over by a tractor, run over by a tahoe, attacked by somthing with a canine tooth spread of about 4 inches (BIG!), and kicked and stomped by the cows and horses on multiple occasions. Oh and if I didn't take her from the "breeder" she was destined for drop off. She knows how to sit, shake, lay, stay, high five, high ten, and speak.
Next is Psyco Kitty. My mom found him at the school she works at. She was excersizing and he was chasing her. We (my family and the vetrinarians I work for) believe he may be a Bengal, he was not chipped and no one ever claimed him. DD LOVES this cat. And he loves her right back. He hisses at the other dogs, but runs up to her and **** Dog flea bites him all over. Lol :)
These are the only two I will share as I don't want to overload you with pictures of Ringo ( Gliddens Ring of Gold) our Golden Retriever stud. Ruger our blue heeler, Boo our chocolate lab. Then theres Fluffy Kitty, Chaos, and all the other barn kitties. And our donkey, Jenny (orginal huh?). And the bull as he is a big pet. And our ducks, chickens, and fishys!
Isn't it amazing how dogs, cats, birds and other animals seem to wind their way into our hearts.
Thanks for the comments on the Berners, they are the most awesome dogs. I raised and showed Shelties for 20 years, but wanted to get back into the big dogs. Sherman, the one on my avatar is just barely over a year and is already 110 lbs. His half sister Sera is not as big, but still is over 90.. Of course they think they are lap dogs.
Doesn't he Indy?? He acts like one too. He hides his toys. We couldn't find he favorite feather toy for like 3 weeks. Then one day he's dragging it around the house like nothing happened.
Wyominggrandma- It really is amazing. You know that quote "If you think your a person of influence, try ordering someone elses dog around." ? That's exactly how it is with **** dog. The whole family will be trying to tell her what to do and she only responds when I tell her. Haha.
