Animaniacs!

I got to thinking tonight about how unique my crazy little animals are and how important they are to me:) after 6 years of marriage we don't have any babies of our own (YET) so for now the furry ones are as close as it gets... so I just wanted to dedicate this blog post to a girl's best friend...and I've got four of them! And BOY OH BOY did they entertain me the past 7 months my soldier was away...it's almost like they knew???


Here is Calypso...our 2 year old English Mastiff-Rottweiler Cross....she's a doll, a gentle-giant...even if the back door is accidentally left open, she never wanders away...
Sometimes she looks funny when she sleeps LOL.....

She honestly has NO idea how BIG she really is! She LOVES to cuddle and snuggle and sit on your lap....even if you can't breathe LOL (ok not really funny when it's happening)



Then there's our 5 year old cat Sasuke...he's truly the CRAZIEST most STRANGE cat I could even try to describe...he fetches straws and hair elastics as a favorite past time...loves to shred leather...chases his shadow....drinks from the tap...and loves to hide and make us panic thinking we've lost him....oh and did I mention he tries to talk??...no REALLY!!! he does!!!
Oh Kato...this is my buddy...I've had him since I was 13!!!! That makes him ANCIENT!!! Let's put it this way...he's been my bud since my parents were still married LOL! Uh....that means he's real old! But he's still kickin' it and I honestly don't know what I'd do without this pal of mine!

When we first moved to this house (it was the first time we hadn't lived in a condo in 5 years) we let Kato out to explore outdoors like he used to when we lived in Victoria...and we lost him for 5 days!!! We canvassed the neighbourhood door-to-door with 500 laminated colour copied MISSING posters!! Needless to say, it worked and on the 5th night of searching, we found him! Boy was I relieved...I just felt so terrible to lose him after 14 years!....SO happy he's safe at home!
Totally caught red-handed trying to shred the new slip-covers! Kato's favorite past times are eating Q-tips out of the trash (dirty ones...I know...EWWY), playing tag (no, really), and playing outdoors (he's monitored closely now)!
Finally here is our 3 year old Scotty-Westie Mix...Toto....what can I say about this guy...he's soulful...take one look into his eyes and you will see what I mean! He is always by my side...always. Waits for us...no matter what we do or where we go...
This is a usual day in our household  :)

Toto is ALWAYS smiling...this one made me laugh out loud!

I hope this wasn't the most boring post in the world...I know Not everyone is an animal lover and that's OK...but I just had to do a post on my closest most reliable of friends...

Four more reasons for me to love you even more! I too am a huge animal lover, but it really touches my heart when I see people who truly love their cats (unlike those people who think it's funny to make cat jokes)
Love your blog, love what you've done to your house,(you and Holly almost have me convinced on the whole white thing)and love your fur babies, they are just too cute! Keep it up.

Oh, this has to be the most favorite post I've ever seen! Your pets are adorable. Made my day. Thanks to your soldier for his dedication to our country too.

Thanks so much Rebecca for adding me :) I love your furry friend post! I am a total cat person-we are currently looking for our own little kitten...

I am sure your tree will do great. Are you giving any pics for Holly to feature next Friday? Should be a fun feature. When are you thinking of moving to Victoria??

Talk soon,
Becky :)

I think my mom (Millie) and I love animals as much as you do! I have more pics of my dog Duke than I know what to do with.

Oh and I'm 1/2 done with my desk. I can't wait to finish and I'll post pics on my blog soon!
