CREATED TO LOVE
Altough a cat all covered in cat spit will never compare with a dog all covered with doggie slobber,
I still adore them both and marvel that they have associated themselves with the imperfect human
being.  They can love so unconditionally, and we dump them by the thousands Every day.  We as
humans could, if we only took the time, learn so much from them.  You think maybe we are untrainable?  This faulty human behavior has gone on for far too long, you know!

I am sending you this picture.......complete with nose prints on the door.......this is Dottie, my kitty, and Annie,
the youngest of my dogs........they get along great......and they are waiting for Clyde to come home for lunch.  They do this every day......waiting for him to come home.  All I have to do is watch Annie's small tail..........it will begin to wag when she spots his truck.....AND she knows his truck....too.......If Annie barks, Dottie doesn't like that so she will bop her.....or grab her in the behind and bite her.  Annie will just look at her........ Funny how they make a big place in your heart.... Elaine Rester

Christian Pet

 This fundamentalist Christian couple felt it important to own an equally
fundamentally Christian pet.  So, they went shopping.
At a kennel specializing in this particular breed, they found a dog they
liked quite a lot.  When they asked the dog to fetch the Bible, he did
itin a flash. When they instructed him to look up Psalm 23, he complied
equally fast, using his paws with dexterity. They were impressed,
purchased the animal, and went home (piously, of course).  That night
they had friends over. They were so proud of their new fundamentalist
dog and his major skills, they called the dog and showed off a little.

The friends were impressed, and asked whether the dog was able to do any
of the usual dog tricks, as well. This stopped the couple cold, as they hadn't
thought about "normal" tricks.  Well, they said, "Let's try this out."
Once more they called the dog, and they clearly pronounced the command,
"Heel!" Quick as a wink, the dog jumped up, put his paw on the man's
forehead,  closed his eyes in concentration, and bowed his head.

A note regarding Panda, the black and white puppy in the photo.  Her mother abandoned her.  There were eight pups in the litter.
When Shy was about to have pups she paniced and started running around the yard in the dark.  I caught her and tied her up.  This
was in the middle of the night.  She proceeded to give birth.  I kept hearing this meowing sound off in the dark and went exploring
and found this pup she had dropped in her panic.  Umbilical cord and placenta still attached.  Puppy cold.  I brought it in and cleaned
it up and gave it to her.  She apparently did not recognize it as hers.  Following a storm a couple of days later I found this puppy
kicked out of the nest, cold, wet and barely breathing.  We rubbed and warmed it, fed it goats milk and took it to the vet for fluids.  In
a couple of hours it started to revive.  I bottle fed the little bundle of fur and named her Panda.  She looks so much like a stuffed toy
with shoe button eyes.  She now things I am her mother.  I had planned on keeping an all white pup from the litter but I guess the
selection has been made for me.  Panda is a Great Pyrenees Mountain Dog.  We own both her parents and will be putting them and
the other seven puppies up for sale.
Since my husband's health has been deteriorating I have had to make the decision to sell all my animals, (except for a few pets).  I
have been raising dogs, (Chihuahuas, Rat Terriers and Great Pyrenees), miniature horses and assorted other animals, including
turkeys, rheas, an arthritic goat and some chickens.  Up until about a year ago we also had an aviary and raised exotic birds.  All
those animals are a lot of manual labor and Windy has struggled to keep cages, kennels and fences built for them.  The time has come
to give him a break, so the animals are being sold off.
