||Merry's Dog, Sparkle: My parents were in the shelter just
looking when Sparkle, then called Prince, was brought in. It's almost like he was sent
to us. They adopted him right then but they didn't tell me! They brought me to the shelter
the next day to see if I liked him, since I was the one who really wanted a puppy. I
thought he was cute, all wet from playing outside, but there was an "adopted" sign
hanging on his pen so I forced myself not to get attached to him. I was very surprised
when my parents told me that we'd adopted him! I was a little sad because I'd wanted a
little puppy on the petfinder site, but little Prince soon got me attached to him and
we brought him home the next Monday. He was a wonderful little puppy, but in a few days
I still hadn't thought of a good name for him. I was absent-mindedly doodling a star
and thinking, "Star, no that's not a good name for him... Spar- Sparkle!" it was
perfect. This little puppy brought sparkle to all our lives. Now he's a big, beautiful
dog as you can see from the picture. I'm very blessed to have him in our family.
||Celine's Cat, Minou:
Minou came to live with us in the fall of 1998. He was such a funny kitten, and
easily scared. He always had the best hiding spots to sleep. But now he mostly
sleeps on MY bed, because he knows I love him most. He doesn't like other cats, rather
anti-social he is.
||Wheekie's Budgie, Blue-boy: Blue-boy loves tweeting to the birdies
outside in the garden, loves millet spray and enjoy trundling around my
lounge carpet waiting for me to pick him up and take him back to his
cage as he can't be bothered to fly back lol
||Wheekie's Budgie, Barney: Barney has settled in really well and is now living in the same
cage as Blue-Boy. Barney is
the barmiest budgie around, he has the highest and loudest 'peep' and is
extrememely acrobatic' !
||aL's Rabbit, Molly: Molly is a gorgeous bunny with
a beautiful character. She is somewhat tempremental and is just a little ball of
energy! She has to stick her nose into everything and one day that will get her
into alot of trouble. She loves being patted and having her cheeks rubbed and
when you do this, she turns into a big softy!!
||Jo's Rabbit, Karrots: Karrots is an orange rex and a house bunny. He loves getting all the attention and
is very cheeky to. He loves to nibble on the carpet and the wallpaper when he thinks
no one is looking. He is very loving though and loves to cuddle up to you and have a
stroke in the evenings. His favorite food is broccoli, he loves it! He is 2 1/2 years old and was born in March 2001.
||Louise's Ferrets, Slinky and Lavinia: Here is my son Johnny with our 2 ferrets. The albino one is called Slinky and is blind in one
eye. She was rescued from a man who didn't treat her very well. The polecat one
is called Lavinia, we have had her since she was just 4 weeks old. They are such
characters, but very naughty!
||Louise's Dogs, Ruffle and Pinni: These are 2
of my dogs. Ruffle has only one eye. She is 2 years old and a real sweetie. Pinni is
4 years old ( the black one ) and is lovely but somewhat cocky with the others.
