Cats and Dogs
Some photos of my cats and dogs. Tuffee playing with a toy. Twinkie and Cassie, the cats that we adopted last year.
Tuffee and Ziva resting after running around on the outside of the horse pen while ponies ran on the inside.
Ziva cooling her feet while getting a drink.
Tuffee and then Ziva showing how they get in and out of Star's pen, my blind horse, so they can chase off the nasty neighbor dog that barks at Star. The dogs are very protective of her. Ziva will spend most of the day in her pen with her when I let her, even thou she would probably be more comfortable is some other part of the yard.
Retirement has finally come and for the first few years I lived as a "desert rat" on a small chunk of desert land in Rio Rancho, NM. Recently my husband and I moved to Bedford, KY so we would be near my son. It has been quite an experience. We are on 30 acres that includes open areas and forest. My own pets include 4 cats, 1 dog, 2 horses, and 2 ponies. All pets were adopted from shelters. I like to raise flowers, and houseplants, and I try to garden. I sometimes attempt to write fiction and nonfiction stories. I love to take photos and share them. I enjoy watching the sun rise in the morning and the moon rise in the evening, and love watching nature. I am an avid reader of fiction books with westerns and mysteries being my favorites.
