    The rest of the "Pack".

    I am bored and am procrastinating cleaning house.. so I figured, why not post pictures of all the rest of my critters.

    Starting off with..

    Apollo! He is my almost 8 year old Bouvier des Flandres mix. I got him when he was 5 and a half weeks old.



    Then Mia! She's one of my rescues. She's about 6 years old or so. It's hard to tell with her breed as they lose their teeth at young ages so there's not a lot to go from. I was told she was a purebred Chinese Crested, but she's much too large, so I call her a mix.



    Now with the cats.

    Nacho! He is almost 6 years old. He is brother to Orion. My only two cats that are not rescues.



    And Orion.


    TOgether


    Poptart! He is 5 years old! Poptart and his brother Gordito were rescued from being run over a lawn mower when they were only 4 weeks old. They had a sister as well, but she didn't make it. I bottle raised these two. And Kept them both.



    Gordito!



    Then my Cappy Baby. He was found under a bush with two other kittens when he was only about 10 days old. I got them when they were about 12. Their mama had been hit by a car. I bottle raised all three, and fell in love with this munchkin. I adopted the other two boys out into a great home together.



    And just to show you how cute he was


    And now the latest brat. Jasper. I got him when he was 9 days old. He was supposedly found out by a dumpster, but I later found out that the people that supposedly found him, were their owners but didn't want to get in trouble for not having him treated.
    His mama bit off one of his rear feet and about half of his tail when he was born. Likely in attempts to remove the umbilical cord. After a vet visit and some nice warm formula, he started to heal. He is now 6 months old and still looking for his forever home. But I imagine he will become another 'failed foster'





    Hope you enjoyed.

    Thank you!

    And yeah, that is Jasper attacking her. All the cats love Mia. She's more catlike than she is doglike.

    And yes! I looooveee Cresties. ;D I didn't care for the breed at all until I got her. She was meant to be a temporary foster, but that didn't work out.
    I've had her since August 2006 and I can't wait till I can get another one! These are amazing dogs. And I can say for a fact that I will always own at least one for the rest of my life.

    I love kitty cats. I wish birds and cats could get along (without supervision). Otherwise I would have a lot of cats too!

    Imagine yourself through their eyes.

    Aw they are all so cute. You can tell they all have very different personalities. And jasper...wow. That's got to be the weirdest injury I've heard of regarding cats. Poor guy.

    Re: The rest of the "Pack".

    My birds are all confined to a bedroom with the door shut. I can't trust my cats, even with supervision.

    A few years ago I used to have budgies, and the cage hung securely from the ceiling. Away from the cats. The cats would watch but couldn't reach. And one day, I am still unsure how it happened, one got out of the cage (door was still shut) and the cat got it, and the other one in the cage died of fright.
    I didn't own birds for a long time after that.
    I still don't know how it happened.


    Thanks everyone.

    !!! Apollo is such a fuzzBO! I love him! Lol!

    Not that I have a thing for fuzzy dogs or anything *glances at three shih tzus, a yorkie and a shih tzu yorkie mix sprawled out all over the floor, wrestling on their fuzzy bellies*


    I believe in the big bang theory. God spoke and BANG! it happened.
