There is something about the love of a family pet which helps us all to slow down if we allow it. In their innocent eyes we see an entity that fully trusts us, whom loves us unconditionally and even brings us laughter when we least expect it. I love my pets and openly admit their antics have me in stitches throughout my day.
In 2009 just before Father’s Day I fell in love with a brand-new Boxer puppy whom we knew HAD to become a member of our family.
Miss Cocoa Bean has added tremendous joy to our lives with her happy Boxer-wiggle, her naughty ways and her love for us all. She is all grown up now and although she looks quite regal at times, she still has that amazing puppy energy.
Next came Miss Angie the Cockatoo who needed a home. This bird is so interactive it’s not funny! Angie loves to dance, sing, cuddle and wave at us. She is quite vocal and if we leave her alone while she is out of her cage she happily calls us back…LOUDLY.
Just this week we’ve added another pet to our family, I’m please to introduce Miss Olive Queen Elizabeth to you all! This English Bulldog puppy is keeping us on our toes. We had almost forgotten the chewing, yipping, snoring and snuggles a puppy can bring.
Once again, we are blessed to feel the puppy-love in our home…and in our pool after Olive was chasing a flower and fell in!
Right now we consider our little family complete with our 2 Grandparents, 2 parents, 2 children, 2 dogs and one bird. Our home is a bit noisy, a bit messy but oh so FUN!
Miss Olive is fitting in very well and don’t worry Miss Cocoa is quickly showing her who is boss!
