This week I'm sharing photos of my family. I'm a big animal person; always had a pet growing up and have always had at least one dog in my life.
This is Muffin. She's a poodle that I adopted from the local Shelter. She's full of personality and love. We were lucky to find eachother. She had been adopted and was returned to the Shelter within a month. Turns out she has lots of allergies. I was a bit mislead by the Shelter as to the extent of what was going on with her. Let's just say that I've invested a mini-vacation on Muffin. Bless her heart. I have to give her shots every other week and pills at least three times a week. She's a trooper and I love her.
This little cutie pie is Poppy. She's a yellow sided green cheek conure. She can say her name and "sweetheart." Now, I KNOW she's talking to me when she says that! I've heard her mimic my laugh but she doesn't do that too often. When she hears the key in the lock as I arrive home she starts whistling, alerting Muffin and Katie to my arrival.
This little sweetie is Katie. She's a dog that I was fostering. Have you heard that story? You volunteer to foster a dog until it finds a home? Well, I flunked the fostering part! She had a very difficult life before arriving at my house. I've had her for about nine years and she's still a bit skittish when meeting new people. Bless her heart. Her muzzle and ears were solid black when I got her. She loves laying out in the backyard despite having a doggie door and can lounge on the furniture. She was excited when Muffin joined the family as her previous companion, Daisy, had passed away. Muffin has even taught Katie how to play! Can you imagine a dog not knowing how to play? My little love.
These three bring smiles to my face, happiness to my heart and warmth to my soul.
