1 dog, Scarlet, a lab mix
2 cats, one shorthair Patches , he's grey and white and the grey parts look like patches (duh) when he walks away from you it looks like he's got leg warmers on! The other one, Zuki, is a white Himalayan. He had a black brother named Harley, but poor Harley had leukenia and left us.
We had a real menagerie about 2 yrs ago, Pinky the ferret, Little Richard the guinea pig and Jerry Springer the gecko. They've all gone to pet heaven.
We also have a boa and a leopard gecko, not to mention the koi in the pond outside.

My husband and my son dug out the pond last summer. In the spring a heron ate all the fish , so we had to put a screen on it before we got new ones. It looks really nice.

yeah....birds seems to like Koi....I think its because theyre so frickin' bright, you can't but help see them from above...being that they're bright orange, or yellow, or white, most of the time...just look for the splotch of color...lol. Having a screen is supposed to keep all but the most intent birds away....kind of like having a top on a indoor tank if you have a cat...hehe.

Funny thing about fish and other pets..the dog I spoke of earlier likes to eat the fish flakes that don't make it into the tank...so if you go over, you can tell if the fish have been fed, because her breath reeks of dead fish....its the weirdest thing, and kinda grody too.

well, looks like I have adopted another mallard duck,,, today,, I was playing the mandolin on the deck,,a Woody Guithrie tune and saw a few ducks in the water,,,then one flys up to the grass,, and landed with a
thump and jusy sat there,,,,so I went to go look,, and it had one leg,,,,,,, so I went in the barn,, and got a bucket of cracked corn... and went down and fed the poor thing,,,and I named him,
'Stompy'

How's Stompy doing? Does he still come around? My dog would probably chase him away!
We are down to 3 pets right now.The dog and 2 cats! An all time low for us.

Hey Barb, he's doing good, I see him every now and then, and now I got 10 baby Mallards and five geese.. of course, their not really mine... lol.... but when they hear Me, outside singing and playing they swim over...... and I feed them
a few decades ago...after supper I would be going fishin' and when I came in,,,, start playing the guitar on my old patio... then the ducks would hear Me and come to get fed.... and I wrote a song... well actually named it as a joke,, called
'feeding the ducks'...I was playing it one day ,, and some one asked .. whats the name of it....and told them... then thought I could do better with it.... and renamed it'Sunset on Big River'........so Id' like to Thank the duck's.... for getting me back into Music....lol

quote from Barb: Who's to say inspiration can't come from a duck?
yea ! I was just looking out side and the one legged Mallard was out there... he saw me.. then flew out of the water... and landed on the hill... and I threw him a few pieces of bread.... the old guy is kinda a inspiration for me.. he's all graying....and looking old...and has to push his way around with ong leg.... but he keeps fightin to live....

I had 2 baby birdies the other day that fell out of thire nest....eastern Kingbirds.... so I put a traffic cone close by them,, to remind me and jake not to step on them,, and when the rains started yesterday,,, I placed then under one of the spruce tree's that mark the grave of one of my dobe's.... the momma bird kept diving at me,,lol but I saw one of them this morning,, and I moved close to it,, and it flew about 15 feet away,, so Im confinent that its gonna be ok,,,,,
funny,,, I have no problem killing a person , because if its comes down to that,,, theres a reason..he has to be killed.... but a animal...is another story.....

--------------------------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------
Sad ending to this story,,,a few days ago, the swan reapaeared..and he swam over,,,, and I fed it,,, but it looked very skinny and sickly..... yesterday I looked out the window,,and through the tree's I saw him,,, so I called out to him and grabbed a can of ccracked corn to feed him... but when I got waters side.. I had its head down in the water and was floating dead.....
Swans mate for life.. and a few years back,, its mate was killed.....I kind of know how it feels.. my soulmate lost her battle against cancer ,,,10 years ago to that day....the Season of Life.....seems there's allways a ying and a yang...........
