Sweetie And The Gang

Animals are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms. ~George Eliot

I love my pets. I have had dogs and cats all my life. These animals are a normal part of our family. If we did not have any pets around our house would seem so empty.

Right now we have two dogs and some fish. I have always been a dog person. I am not really into cats, but the cats I have known I have always liked.

Sometimes I wish I had a huge house with a big yard so I could have more pets. It is probably a good thing I don’t because I would take in any animal that needed a home. I would most defiantly have to stay away from the animal shelters.

Big D is fond of birds, I was always scared of them until I met my husband’s bird when we were dating. His Grandpa also has a bird that I like.

So after 11 years of marriage and Big D putting up with all my animals I felt he needed a bird. We found Sweetie on A wonderful lady in our neighborhood was looking for a good home for Sweetie and we just happened to be that home.

I wasn’t extremely excited about a bird, but now that we have her I think we are going to be good friends. This morning she sat on my shoulder as I cleaned the kitchen, and she chirps for me to come talk to her. She is one cool bird and I am glad she is going to stay.

I am with you Kelly a dog makes a house and four really MAKES a house! lol Yes! We have four dogs but only one is mine. His name is Chester and our newest addition is Sheba. So far Sheba has chewed up all my daisy bushes*weeps profusely* torn up a rose bush *gnashes my teeth* and chewed up her doggy bed *grrrr* lol.

I agree. Our pup dog completes our family. She is treated just like one of the kids. She is always there to cheer any of us up when we need it and supportive. You have a couple of sweeties there yourself.

So cute. My siblings and I never had pets growing up, even though we begged. So we think it's funny that all three of us are addicted to our pets now when we are adults.

I also wanted to let you know that I had to go private for awhile but I hope you will email me so I can invite you into my readers.
