Furry Friends Linky Party

In October 2000, I went to a local PetsMart, and fell in love with a cat that was there.  I didn't intend to walk out with a pet....but I did.  Anna is still with me, and still as stuck up as ever!

Anna, now about 14 years old

During Spring Break 2010, my son and I went to PetsMart to get cat food.......and ended up adopting our first dog, Selah.  She was just so sweet, and scared, and quiet, and I wanted her!

Six months after adopting Selah, I thought she needed a buddy, so off we went to the Animal Defense League.  When they asked what kind of dog I was looking for, I said I didn't have a specific breed in mind, but I wanted a dog that doesn't bark a lot.  After walking through all the kennels, I saw this sweet dog, sitting calmly and quietly.... and found our newest dog, Janey.  She loves to snuggle!  She thinks she's a tiny lap dog, and wants to be on you as close as she can get!

What have I learned from my dogs?  All they want is to love and be loved, and really, isn't that what we all need?

  2. Very cute! You guys have your hands full! :) I love when things happen that way-my mom went to see a friend's boxer puppies once and came home with the last 2 that were left. We couldn't believe it! I'm your newest follower.


  3. The dogs do get along with Anna. They want her to play with them, but she won't have any of that!

  4. Thank you so much for sharing Anna, Selah, and Janey!!! They are an adorable trio! :) I especially love the picture of them on their bed! ;-)
