Many of us have beloved pets. Our lives would be empty without them. So I’m delighted to be on this blog hop.

Currently I have two cats in my life. Cuddles and Bandit. They were abandoned fifteen  years ago in a ditch by my old farm. They adopted us and my boys. Cuddles lives up to her name and Bandit is a mischievous one. They’re getting on in years now and don’t have as much night time jungle warfare like they used to. Thank goodness.

And then there is Emma. She is a fabulously sensitive dog. I take her to visit my dad and the other seniors. They love her and she is so good with everyone.

This is one of the last pictures of her and her last vacation to the beach. A few days later we said goodbye. mollie1And those that came before and are now gone too. Each one taking a piece of my heart with them. Sassy. My registered half Arab mare. I had her since she was just shy of two years old. She died just before May 24 this year of either a stroke or heart attack. I had gifted her to a wonderful family that loved and gave her a wonderful home after I sold my farm. sassy3Panther. My registered Quarter Horse gelding, Zips Won of a Kind. I had him since he was a yearling. He became ill and was under veterinary care. In the end he somehow broke his femur and had to be humanly put to sleep. This is the best digital photo I have of him. He was a sweetie and would follow me around the farm with his nose pretty much in my pocket. pantherGilbert. Our pocket pet. gilbertAnd Tia and Bonnie, my queens as I called them. A sable and tri coloured collie. Long gone now. Tabby and Missy, cats that moved with the family for many years. Buddy, an American Saddlebred gelding I had in my early twenties. Candy, my childhood pups. Billy and Bo, a grey and yellow cockatiel. All gone but never, ever forgotten.
