Apparantly, my home is really an animal shelter! With three dogs, one cat and one cockatiel, all but the bird have cried "sanctuary" at my front door! Bert, a black lab mix, was literally thrown out of a car as it passed our house. Lady and Poppet - sisters - are Great Pyrenese pups, about 4 1/2 months old. The smaller one, Lady, only looks so because we shaved her down after she had been hit by a car. She is mending very nicely and her limp is nearly gone. Poppet still has her thick coat and is with us because we just couldn't separate her from her sister. It seems that none of them have any intention of leaving any time soon. Bert is still with us after 5 years and the sisters have been here about a month now. Then there was Fred, a small mixed dog; Maggie, a black lab pup; Smokey, a little gray kitten;...the list goes on. We've managed to find good homes for them. Well, except for Bert and he's one of the family now, as will be Lady and Poppet, I suspect. Please excuse the pupils in their pics...can't figure out how to fix that on my camera (still getting the hang of it).
