This is Pedro

This is Pedro.He's a chippen (chihuahua, min-pin mix).I rescued him 6 years ago. When I saw him I fell in love. We (I was happily married at the time) were finally ready to have a pet.   He has the worst breath ever.He’s 100% treat motivated, he will do NOTHING unless I’ve got something food related on offer. (in other words I’m a terrible dog trainer)!...more

I'm Not a Hoarder...Yet

Two of our cats have come from the farm, though. Bubba found Harry Potter in the middle of the road one night. He had a big scratch on his tiny head, which christened him with his name. Mokey, as a kitten, was siphoning heat from a mama goat that had its head stuck in a gate and couldn't move. When Bubba freed the goat, out popped Mokey. We kept them, and they grew into obese, lazy, spoiled indoor cats....more

Love I Never Felt Before

I hear the expression, I’ve never thought I could love so much until I had a child. Well, this is not exactly that, but I think it’s close (I don’t mean to insult or negate human mother-child connection).   My mother loves all animals. Growing up I always had one or two four-legged sisters and brothers.   ...more

Holy Cow, Batman

The cow. Got out.Repeat after me: Green Acres is NOT the place to be. Farm living is NOT the life for me.My husband, the cowboy, was out of town. WAY out of town, buying a registered quarter horse, because… you know… we didn’t have one yet.I was hosting “Friday Night Hangout”, where a bunch of high school kids would come over to the house on Friday Nights to – you guessed it – hang out.And since the cow (affectionately known as “Patty”) was a relatively new phenomenon at our place, the kiddos wanted to go out and see her....more
