I have so many animals, where do I start?
I've got 3 dogs - Prince, a 10 year old golden retriever that I bought from a breeder when he was a puppy - Caesar, a 5 year old flat-coated retriever I got from a shelter I worked at - Maisy, a 4 year old hound shepherd mix from the same shelter - and the last dog in the picture is Tiko. He was my daughter's dog, a little black terrier mix, that recently was killed when he got out and chased a car.
Then we have 4 cats, all black (they're not unlucky one bit) - Mama Cat & her son Pipin, they were found at the trash dump 3 years ago, they look exactly alike (black with a touch of white on the chest). The picture of them was taken back when I found them, so Pipin is not so little anymore. They live outside, only because they hate it inside. Then there's Cookie & Ailene, brother and sister out of a litter of 4 that was abandoned at the police station. I bottle fed them, but only found homes for the two "prettier" ones. :) Cookie adores Chad and has him fully trained. I think he's part persian - long beautiful hair, and very prissy for a boy. Ailene is spoiled, has everyone in the house trained, and loves to play pranks. They live inside, UNLESS they go tell Chad how mean I am because I won't open the door. :) (And yes, we talk to them & they talk to us. I can tell when they're telling stories about me.)
Then there are the squirrels! I brought them home when they were very young, and didn't have their eyes open yet. I think they're about 6 months old now. I did have them in a large cage in the house, but they needed more space. I now have them in a cage that's 3 feet around, and 8 feet tall, under a big oak tree. I'll release them on the other side of the pond this fall.
This picture is of one when it was little. That's my daughter Catherine in the picture also. She's always been a big help taking care of any bottle babies we get.
This is a picture of them in the outside cage. They can't be held now. After they stopped being bottle fed, I quit holding them so they would be able to live in the wild without being too tame. They'll greet you in their cage, but if you put your hand in they just might taste a finger. :) And there is no way you can grab one.....it'll bite hard then.
Lastly, we have ducks. I don't have any pictures of them. But we just have 6 little mallards on the pond - 5 female & 1 male.
We also have 3 ten gallon tanks with just basic fish - some tetra, swordtail, and a beta.
