I have a cat and a dog. My cat is pure evil, my dog is very gentle.

I just have my Shihtzu Tanzanite (or Tanzy for short). She's all of 9 pounds, black and white and completely spoiled!

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

My avatar is our 8-year-old Westie, Phoebe. We adopted her when she was five - she'd been a breeding dog in a puppy mill-type operation, but the owners wanted to get rid of her after she couldn't carry puppies to term any longer. She's a great companion - very cuddly and funny. Her name was Twinkie when we adopted her, so we decided to give her something a bit more dignified. :p

I have a Welsh Pembroke Corgi named Paris, whom I raised since she was eight weeks old. She came to me a few days after the death of my previous dog, Cha Cha, which had left me quite bereft. She's so bright and loving, and very fiesty. When I write, she sits at my feet. After two hours she nudges me and barks: Time to play!

We have a 4 year old boxer dog called Evie.

I wanted to call her Ellie for Eleanor of Aquitaine but my husband didn't like it!

I have a 8 1/2 yr old Pit Bull Shepherd mix named Lila (sound familiar?) . She is the best girl and has been my hiking buddy for a long time. She loooves every person she meets but has...um...anger management issues with other dogs. We're working on that...it's a work in progress ;)

I also have three cats:

A 10 yr old white domestic long hair named Zazu who is sweet, gentle, but takes no crap from the rowdy obnoxious youngin's!!

Then there's Gibson, a blue F3 Savannah, who is almost two. He's the smartest cat I know and does nothing without throughly analyzing it first. He's very talkative and I love our "morning conversations" over coffee!

And my Marshall! We lovingly refer to him as our "big galoof" as he's not the most coordinated kitty out there, lol! He's an F2 Savannah, has a heart of gold, and weighs 21tall lean pounds yet still he does whatever his bossy big brothers tell him to do. He is a total love and is the most affectionate cat I've ever known!

They're my babies and couldn't imagine my life without them!!

All we have now are two pet lovebirds. They're about 7 and 8 respectively.

As I mentioned at the old forum, we had a pet rabbit that died just before Christmas. I miss her a lot. :(
