I found a scrawny kitten in the parking lot of my hotel while at a dog show in August 2008. So...kitty number four is named "Georgia" because I was in Perry, GA when I found her. She currently lives at the clinic with our clinic cat, Cracker.
A good dog never dies. He always stays.
He walks beside you on crisp autumn days
When frost is on the fields and when the year
Is ending and the winter's drawing near.
And when it's summer and the bees are humming,
He leaps ahead of you and waits your coming.
And any time you're lonely--look, you'll see
His great eyes watching you still solemnly.
Just call him in your heart, he'll cease his play,
His head within your hand, in his old way.
In late January 2011, I got my first pair of wild type Lady Gouldian finches, Pink and Puff. Since then, I've accumulated a nice flock. They are beautiful to look at and also very entertaining to watch.

In early April 2014, I bought my first chickens...red sex links (brown eggs). They make great pets with the eggs being a bonus. Now, I also have Easter Eggers, Cream Legbars, Black Copper Marans, Wheaten Ameraucanas, and Mille Fleur d'Uccles.
