There is another woman in my bed

2013-02-27_22-36-55_853_zps586c4d48.jpg


She is totally wants me

Or at least my sandwich.

This is Carmel my baby. We got her from a rescue she was abused and underfed and had been in the rescue for over a year because no one would take her home.

The two boy dogs wanted to go back outside and play and Carmel wanted to stay in so she got a bath and is all clean now.

Harold we have a couple of cats too, both sort of rescues.

Bug was found in a guys engine compartment. I honestly don't think she was much over a month old when we got her.

Shadow was a surprise gift to a friend who didn't know his female cat got out of the house two weeks before she was scheduled to be fixed. They couldn't keep the kittens so once they were weaned and no one would take them they were headed to the shelter. All but Shadow found homes. I held off taking her home, but I am glad I did.

Our other two dogs are quasi rescues.

Diesels momma

was headed to the shelter because she was eating her way through a 3 million dollar house on Lake Norman. She chewed through a pillar in the living room one night and the wife had to cry and plead with her husband to not shoot her. We brought her home ( she was supposedly fixed) and a little while later a stray came around to visit that I would guess was a German shepherd wolf mix - I say that because we had a Shephard/wolf hybrid up until I was 14) She presented us with a litter of large puppies and we found great homes for all of them but Diesel who my wife fell in love with. The momma dog eventually wound up on a sheep farm in Winston Salem. As a full blood Great Pyrenees she is in heaven.

Somehow he looks retarded in every photo of him

Red showed up about 4 weeks ago about to starve to death and wanting someone to love him. He followed my wife around all day and when I came home he greeted me in the yard and came in the house with me. Vet said he is just a pup, probably 9 months to a year old. No one claimed him so he is our new buddy. HE still has to learn some manners, but he is almost completely housebroken. He is still a bit camera shy.

All the dogs and cats love Heath. Shadow will go find him if he cries. He picks both cats up by their hair and they just purr. We were very watchful of Red the first couple of weeks but he lets Heath crawl right over him and doesn't care.

They all live together is harmony.

Sorta

And to round out the menagerie we have

Hobo the blue tailed skink that we found in a roll of carpet. He has no blue tail because he is mature. Most don't live long enough for that. HE is 2 1/2 now

And a gerbil that I despise, but who refuses to die. I am tempted to give her to the cats. Little demonic thing serves no purpose and bites anyone that gets near it. Seems happy to be in the shredded paper in her cage. When she finally kicks off we are getting more rats. They are the perfect pet - loving,smart, easy to care for, social, and fun to watch.

Yes we have a bunch of pets, but they can make a bad day a lot better. They are great judges of character - except for the gerbil who hates the world - and i fear for the life of anyone who ever messes with Heath or Steph. Although I have a feeling that if someone attacked me they would sit back and see if I am as tough as I have told them I am.

It is funny how they know who is in charge. Within two days of being here Red knew I was the boss and Steph was a pushover.

Well that is long enough - but I can't sleep.

Nice bunch of furry friends you have there uncle Willy! We have 2 cats and 2 dogs and they get along pretty well! It would be kinda lonely here without them.

Good for you Willy, rescuing all those animals! We got Buster in a similar way as you got Red. I was out working in the yard about 2 years ago and our other dogs started going nut's. I saw a couple of strays out by the road and then out of the drainage ditch came Buster. The other dogs stayed out by the road and kept moving on, Buster came right over to me and sat down beside me and never left. All of ours are rescues.

That girl in your bed is cute. Your wife really should be jealous.

We have a black lab, Kathie, and a black cat, Maggie. The twain shall never meet in peace.

No matter how ornery a person you are, a dog will love you unconditionally if you love them.

:thumbs: on the successful rescue
Yea....lock your wife and your dog in the barn for an hour....see who is happy to see you when you let them out :smilewink:

Man, I thought we had a zoo. I'll have to post pics off all our dogs, cat, rabbits, goats, lizards, turtles, etc sometime

You know Uncle WIllie for a big gruff looking guy you sure seem to have a soft heart :thumbs: . Kudos to you for the rescues and the home you provide for your pets. We love our Millie, she sleeps on the bed with us, sometimes in the bed if its cold enough.

All of our dogs & cats were either a stray that showed up, or rescued from owners wanting rid of them. 2 house dogs, one part chijuajua, one part Yorky. Baby, our outside dog showed up on our doorstep one morning when I went to milk. Didn't have the heart to take her to the pound. Momma Cat (simple name) showed up as a drop off also. She gave birth to a litter, which we still have her son "Tommy" when he decides to come home to visit. Momma Cat got fixed, and is fat as a pig. Rat/mouse killer supreme!

On a farm, one doesn't have to go look for a pet....they find you.

Shadow is the best mouser we have had in a while. She doesn't eat them though, she chews the back legs off of them and leaves them laying. We were gone for 5 days over Christmas and she was outside the whole time. When we got back it looked like mouse genocide had happened in the field. Everywhere there were mice with no back legs. She is a serial killer.
