I would love to share about my pets. We love them so much! They are definitely part of our family.
Snickles is the oldest. She is 16 years old and we actually call her Gramma sometimes. She is extremely grumpy and she bites; when she is really angry she will draw blood. She is a nasty girl but when she wants to get pet, she will allow you to pet her head and will act all sweet and stuff until you start petting her somewhere else. She is the ruler of the household. We got her when we moved into our last house. My oldest son was 4 and my youngest was 1. I dread the day that she dies.
Next oldest is Dukey. He is about 8 or 8 1/2. His previous owner was a breeder who had dementia and she ended up getting put in a home and she had several dogs. Duke was one of them. He was about 1 when we got him and he had never been out of a kennel. Needless to say, his one leg is a little deformed but it doesn’t hold him back. He thinks he is the leader of the household until Snickles hisses and then he knows he’s not….for now! He is great for letting us know when we have company; he is a barker ( he is also Momma’s boy).
Next, comes Massey. We haven’t had him for quite a year yet. He was 4 when we got him. He is a Bullmastiff. The reason he needed to be rehomed is because his previous owner’s found out that their child, who was one at the time, was allergic to him. They seem to have really loved him. He is a very nice mild mannered boy and does a few little tricks. He also likes to wander over to the bee farm across our street so we now have to tie him up. He is a great deterrent for would-be thieves. I don’t think he would be that mellow then. He has fit into our family pretty fine. The gentle giant.
Last, but certainly not least, is our Marti. She is about 8 months old and was a barn cat actually. Unfortunately, we had to rescue her because Massey seemed to not like kittens ( or was playing with her). She has been the joy of our winter. Wowsers! She is wild and she literally bounces off the walls. She is so much fun and is so hyper. She super bothers Snickels and Dukey. He and Massey do get along but under her terms. She is so much fun!
There you have it. We have had other pets and maybe one day I will share about our first dog, Gator. She was the apple of our eyes. Oh, how I miss her terribly still. She grew up with the boys and I would tell them that she was their older sister. LOL They don’t seem to be too damaged by it. 🙂
Feel free to share in the comments about your pets if you want. Have a wonderful day friends. It’s a dull, drab, cloudy and cool day here but Spring is springing and I am thrilled! On that note:
Do you know what happens when you allow yourself to be happy? You are truly happy. ( stay tuned for a full post on this!)
Toodles! I loves you!

Pets are children for their whole lives. We’ve had 3 Corgis, most dying around 15-16. Our 3rd Corgi is Dollar and he is 15. His back end is deteriorating so it won’t be long before he is gone. All our Corgis have been show rescues, that is they were brought up to be show dogs but because of various things they did not do well in the show ring. We had 2 cats, Salt was 18 when he died 2 years ago and Tigger was 19 when we had to put her down 2 weeks ago. The cats were rescued by me one cold January morning out in the bush, they were just about frozen. The rest of the litter and the momma didn’t make it. Then of course there is the husband he will be 71 in June and is still a bit of a pet. LOL
This is awesome Wyndy. Thanks for sharing. ❤ I understand the husband part too. lol
