One would have thought this post would have been done some time ago, why? Its simple really, I have a house full of animals and we adore each and every one of them for the individual they are – they are each a constant source of love, amusement, and companionship to us – with each of us in my house having one of them that consistently comes to us looking for love, reassurance, and admiration.
If you haven’t read my ‘About Page’ I’ll put it simply, at present we have the below:
– Two Dogs, Nixon our 10yr. old Rottweiler Mix and Sadie, our 11-month old Pit Mix
– Three Cats, Cinnamon a 8yr. old Grey Tabby, Callie a 6yr. old Calico Cat, and the baby Pickles is a 3yr. old Tortoise Shell Cat
– 1 bearded Dragon, Smaug, a 1yr. old Fancy Bearded Dragon
So having a full house of animals is normal for us!
So here we go!
