LOVE YOUR PET DAY
And since we just lost our beloved puppy, Boots...I wanted to honor the pets that remain with us.
|Alli and Hoss|
Hoss was born to a stray that wandered up to our property in 2008. We have no idea what his lineage is other than mutt (his mother looked like a lab mix). But he is the kindest and strangest male dog we have ever had. We have nicknamed him 'the eunuch' because he is constantly at Alli's side. He defleas her and bows to her every whim. He is my sidekick when I go for walk...unless Alli comes along. You should see him trying to decide who to defend when other dogs come around. He runs from me to her to me to her. It drives him nuts!

This is technically NOT our pet...but Brianne's. However, she has been living with us until Bri and Josh have their home free of cat-killing dogs. Bri found Zoe in our driveway after school just before she turned 16. She was tiny...so much so that Bri was able to hide her in a drawer for two weeks before she asked to keep her as a birthday present. My only condition was that I never had to clean the litter box. UMMM....yeah....do remember that deal, Bri? We think she is a Maine Coon Cat with beautiful tortoise shell colored markings and long, fluffy hair. She is getting bossy in her old (ten year) age though. Especially when it comes to food!
