The Gang is all Here

Hi everyone! With temps dropping to ten below zero tomorrow I am snuggled into my electric blanket early. I am just learning the new laptop, a pretty HP and I am getting around it easily. I just have not had time to load pictures so if you follow me you can get a mental image of the pets here.
Boots has been here the longest. This "fat" cat was born on our wedding anniversary and he is getting to be an old fellow. He will turn 11 this year.He has a "Got Milk" moustache on his black and white body. Bandit is the black and white rat terrier that our son Jeremy bought when our black lab Shadow died tragically in a hit and run accident in 1999. The little odd fellow Bandit is getting gray but he still delights us with his kind heart and endless love he shares. He often hobbles about, rather well, on three legs. His right back leg may be getting a bit stiff with old age but he is remarkable. Here comes Rose. This pert gray tabby turns 6 years old in March. She was going to be destroyed and our son Nick begged us to take her in. This silly kitty thinks Roxie the chihuahua is her sister! More about Rox later. Rose acts like a dog and comes when you call her name and whistle for her. She is a classic beggar too. Smokey in an American patriot. Born on the Fourth of July he turns three this year. He is a "Scobby Doo" sort of guy but super smart and kind hearted. He watches over Stella. She is about three too, in August. A former abused girl we gave a home to. Stella loves stealing treats from the others and she is always watching Smokey to make sure he is watching her. Roxie is Hannah's little chihuahua. She is a spoiled princess wearing a wardrobe to rival a real princess. She and Rose often hang out thinking they are sisters!
I will keep you posted and get photos up this weekend. Meanwhile visit Angela our hostess for Tuesday's Show and Tail. She is wonderful to share all her own stories with us too.

Sounds like you have a full house, or bed anyway. They all sound so wonderful and so loved.
We have 4 cats and 2 dogs- all rescues, and I wouldn't trade them for anything.
Stay warm- we have 5 above right now, but warmer days are coming!
Enjoy that electric blanket! And the new laptop!
Hugs- Tete

Hey Sister, At first I popped in thinking all the kids and their friends and hubby and who knows who else was with you under your bunkie then realized you were talking about all the fur babies. Ha ha ha stay warm. All of you. I'm waiting on another snow day here. So far just icy stuff. Love you, Mollye

HI Anne, Oh goodness, your animals sound really cute and all with very distinctly funny personalities :) :) God bless animals for all the joy and love they bring into our lives :) :) Please, please, pretty please post some photos once you get you're camera working. I'm glad you like you 're new computer ;) :) Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

How cool to have animals born on your anniversary and even the 4th of July! Hope it didn't get too cold for everyone!
