nice photo of the shelties! I used to take pictures of llamas for clients, and know how hard it is to get animals to pose against a pleasing background, not half in sun and half in shadow, or in front of the tatty old lawn chair. Critters just don't understand why you are standing there with that little box in front of your eye!

I've got an application pending to adopt this 11 month old Cocker Spaniel named Chelsea from a volunteer rescue/foster group. I really hope she gets to join the rest of my animal house soon! I want her to be a playmate for Lucy, the Cocker I already have, since Lucy spends so much of the day in the garage alone while I'm at work.

We practically have a zoo:

Jay- a Thoroughbred gelding, looks kind of mule like, an absoloute sook with a sweet temperament.

Nipper- A terrier (we think he's a cairn terrier cross), he was left on our doorstep as a puppy by an old lady with alzheimers (sp?) after she bought him from a pet shop. He's very much a one family dog and can be a little viscious with strangers- we've had to put a fair bit of work into him to help this.

Mia- about 10 years old, a Collie x Border collie female, one of the sweetest dogs in the world.

The Cats-
Belle- a female tabby about 8 years old. One time matriach of the Walker family cats who is now losing her superior status.

Tiger- my tabby male, he was born to a feral cats but is quite friendly he hates tom cats and has a go at them if any come near the house.

Layla- my female black and white fluffy, totally evil. Goes from loving and purring to trying to bite your hand of.

and the twins, both 10 months old and tabby they are Sabah and Cleo, both born to a feral cat and abandoned and raised by us. Origionally when they were old enough we were going to find them new homes, however I pursuaded my parents to let me keep Sabah as an 18th birthday present and get her desexed etc, my whole family are absoloute softies and we couldn't split them up so Cleo stayed too.

We have 2 canaries and 4 Zebra finches as well as a Quail.
We have also become Kakariki Parrot fans and have two- Honey and Tilt (who is rather psychotic).

Also one hen and 3 goldfish. We also have 2 female Guinea Pigs who are on loan to my mums best friend who is showing them and also going to breed with them.

Until January this year I had a Thoroughbred x mare Bess who was my best friend, unfortunately age got the best of her and she had to be put down, she was he best little horse in the whole world in my humble opinion. :D
