Our Animals

As of the writing of this, we have three dogs, two cats, two goats, eight chickens, three miniature horses and one pig.




our dog

Snowy



With sadness, I have to inform you that Snowy passed on. She didn't want to go, but her body gave out. My children picked Snowy out of a litter of puppies someone advertised for sale. We realized she had mange after we got her home and everyone started itching real badly. She's been with 13 years, and is the one pet I feel closest to. She's very wise and knows my moods well.





a goat

Sista



This is our first goat Susan named Sista. We hope our two goats are pregnant.





the late Happy

Happy



Happy was part Blue Tick and part something else. Susan rescued him from a litter of puppies. She nursed his weak heart back to health and he was a pleasure to play with, but quite a challenge to train. We lost him in late 2005 when he wandered to the highway and got hit.





Luna

Luna




Susan got Luna, and she's a bit rambunctious. Doesn't sit long enough for a picture. She's the sweetest dog -- loves to chase squirrels./





Trece

Trece


My children spotted this dog on the side of the road on Highwy 13 in Randolph County. They named her Trece, spanish for 13. She got her head stuck in this pot one morning, apparently drinking some water out of it.

BC

BC


BC stands for Big Cat. I got her from a friend who thought I needed a cat. She's lived up to her name. She eats cat food, dog food, mice, voles, lizards and birds. She'll let me hold her for maybe 15 seconds. Then she wants down.





Griffin

Griffin


Susan rescued Griffin from a couple who was undergoing some medical procedures and could no longer take care of him. He enjoys our table scraps and being scratched under his chin.
