If you know me at all, you will know that I have been a softy for my 4-legged family members for my entire life. I was brought up in a pretty old-school Italian family and we always had a dog but it was for the specific purpose of hunting. I did not follow suit. I don’t eat meat so I’m not into hunting, and my dogs sleep in my bed! hahahaha.
In my house, my dogs are family members. I have no children and it might be a cliche but they are fur-babies and they are cherished to the max (some may say spoiled!!!) Betty and Cali are my Beloved best friends and they do everything with me. They are loved unconditionally – which they return in spades – and are always super happy to see me come home… I have had many dogs over the years and they each share a special place in my heart and I can’t even imagine not having a dog in my life. xoxo
Billie is my senior German Short Hair Pointer who is turning 16 this week. I rescued her from a bad situation when she was 3 years old and she has been my faithful companion ever since. Morning is her favourite time! We make the rounds together to let the chickens out of their coop and feed the rabbits. Then we play the food game and go for a stroll to the lake; when we get back inside, it’s time for the rest of the household to wake up. For Billie and I, mornings are our special time and we cherish them.
Tuesday was a special day! We welcomed a new member to our family… Her name is Cali. We adopted her because she needed a more active family with a few more zoo members – something we can easily provide! The two lovelies portrayed on the picture, Betty and Cali, are more then just Partners in our family now; they are the same age and the same size, and love playing together. Cali has found her forever home. xoxox
