The Zoo

Post by MLS859 » Wed October 29th, 2008, 2:13 pm

All of our animals are named after a real person or a fictional character:

Clayton -- lab/pit/hound mix

Spencer [almost totally blind] & Madigan [totally deaf] (Boston Terriers) and Darcy (pug)
Image


Butler (Boston Terrier)
Image


Reese (chihuahua mix) -- this is actually my daughter's dog but she's living with us for awhile
Image

We also have a bird (Pippin) and a chinchilla (Wicket) but don't have any photos handy.

They do keep me busy (and cause me to have a lot of vet bills!) but they're worth it!!

I think I should send a photo of Reese to area orthodontists and ask if they could use her for advertising purposes! :D

We've just learned that our big Boston (Butler) has cancer and very little can be done. We are heartbroken -- he's only 7 or 8 years old (he's a rescue and we don't know exactly how hold he is). My daughter (16) is devastated. This has been sudden and totally unexpected. I would appreciate all prayers/good thoughts thrown our way as we go through this difficult time.
