Dog #1: Miniature dachshund, brown, very large ego, rather handsome, incredibly greedy.

Dog #2: Miniature dachshund, brown, grossly overweight, extremely insecure, spectacularly lazy.

Dog #3: Full-size dachshund, black and tan, older than Methusaleh, and more paranoid than Opus the Penguin on his worst day. Lives in constant fear of strangers, visitors, abandonment, things that go "bump" in the night, things that fly overhead, and things that may even burrow underground (like in the movie "Tremors").

Mr. Sage is a 13 year old blue heeler mix, a very good boy, a little hard of hearing, but otherwise quite healthy. He used to be the fastest dog in the park, but he lost a step or three with his advancing years (just don't remind him about it -- he's a little sensitive).

His partner in doggie-dom is Iris, a 6 1/2 year old lab/border collie, a sweet, affectionate and thoroughly goofy girl, with a sensitive stomach and a penchant for eating garbage (not a great combination). And she's a whole lot faster than Sage (much to her delight and his consternation).

Two Weimaraners----Jaeger(12) and Sissy(9). I've owned Weims all of my adult life and these two are just a bit extra special. Jaeger is aging a lot with arthitis, deafness, blindness, and seizures, but for all of that is still a happy camper. He is the most docile and loving dog I have ever had. Sissy is Queen of the House, a serious alpha female but "Daddy's Girl" who accompanies me almost everywhere.

Five Cats-----Bixby, a classic tabby, and the Leader of the Pack. Has never been known to back down to any other cat but a GREAT lap cat when it suits him. Roamin, a black and white tuxedo,who has a pelt ratherthan a coat. Massively built but gentle and a real lover, Karen's cat. Pepper, the family wussy pussy. Loves Michael (as do all the cats) but a real wuss who sneaks around to avoid beatings by Bix. Sugar, a pure white female shorthair with gold eyes. A lover but dumber than a box of rocks. Sloop, a 6 month old black shorthair, Sugar's kitten. We have completely spoiled this guy and even Bix treats him differently. as if if he knows this is the Prince who will take his kingdom.

One Cockatiel----Maddy. He's just an incredible kick in the ass. Cockatiels when hand raised are just GREAT birds. Lots of personality. He damn near died five years ago but after investing almost a grand in bird vet bills, he made it. This shows how nuts we are for our animals.

55 Gallon Aquarium-----freshwater. We have rainbows, gourami, black skirt tetras, rosy barbs, etc. Our most interesting is a 10 YEAR OLD albino irridescent shark (basically a catfish). He's about 10 inches long and very old for a tank fish.

Orion is an 8 year old Springer Spaniel. He is big for a Springer and a loving and gentle creature who still plays like a puppy when he meets canine soul mates, especially other Springers. He's lost some of the motivation to tow us for miles on skis in winter, when there's no snow he's on the noble and never ending quest for one more mudhole to immerse his shaggy body in.

I grew up with Springers and various Springer mixes (a Springer/Lab mix named Skipper was THE dog of my childhood). My wife was never a dog person growing up so dogs weren't in the picture when we married, but when the boys started nagging about getting a dog I showed her pictures of Springers and she fell in love. Orion now rules the household with my wife as his second in command. I get to carry in the groceries and fill his feed bowl.

I can say with absolute certainty that we have two cats. We may have more, depending upon your definition of "have". If cats which hang around despite the fact that they aren't fed, aren't petted, aren't wanted, and are regularly threatened with being shot can be said to be "had", then we have four cats.

We also have a 1/2 acre pond full of koi and comets. Some of the koi weigh five pounds or more.

Right now we are down to only 3 pets who own us.

Amy--a German Shepherd mix we adopted from the shelter--she's about 3 now and never met a person she isn't certain will absolutely adore her. She likes to lean against your leg, lure you to pet her, and then slowly slide down your leg, turning slightly as she goes, so she eventually ends belly up with your foot under her neck to make a nice pillow.

Stella--a 5 month old white and mackerel kitten who was bottle fed from 2 days old and thinks she is a human being. She crawls under the covers to sleep with me at nigh, and talks constantly. Chirps, meows, chortles, squeaks, purrs. Very expressive young lady, she is.

Nu-Nu a rather cranky, largish goldfish my son won at a carnival when he was 4 years old. That makes Nu-Nu about 9. He was my son's first fish, and has out-lived all of the ones who came after--most of whom probably died from the stress of sharing a tank with Nu Nu. He is a bit arrogant.

Nu-Nu's life has gotten much more exciting recently. Stella the cat would love to have him for supper, and occasionally goes fishing with one paw through the gap in the tank cover where the filter is. Nu-Nu does not seem to quite as arrogant as he was before Stella came.

Presently, and sadly, dogless at the moment.

But - we now have a six month old solid black and silver-tipped grey classic tabby, a beautiful youngster with a very appealing face. He was the most aggressive kitten I've ever raised, but has tamed down quite a lot and likes a good hour or two of sooking in the evening. He's completely fearless and likes wrestling with visiting dogs, regardless of size.

A going-on-six-year old pale-colored Cairn Terrier who started life as a Meghan but when her first person died and I got her (long story) I decided that a dog so eager to please and so convinced that everyone on foot is panting to make her acquaintance was way too cute for a formal Meghan; she is now Meggie.

A coal black handsome dude of a cat named 'archy' as in the Mehitabel saga is a narrow, tall, graceful, dignified 12 year old. Once in awhile he forgets himself and gambols and cavorts like a kittn. If it weren't for an occasional blink passersby might take him for a shiny ceramic figurine at the window.

Well, might as well...the list is dwindling at our house, but we still love our "keepers" who are:

Merlee - McNab Border Collie (shorter than with shorter hair than, and not nearly as yappie, as Border Collies, with wicked loyalty) found outside a grocery store which he had been sneaking into each time a customer activated the automatic doors, then begging food off the deli person. He's black and white and I was NOT going to keep him, but Rog thought he'd be a good dog and he really perked up our old German Shepherd/Doberman mix, the late Shu Montu aka "Montee," so he got to stay and as far as Rog and I are concerned, if we ever have another dog, which I am sure we will, it wil be another McNab. Never known a smarter dog.We've been kind of watching for a breeder, see if we could find a young'un so's Merls could bring him up right before he passes. We figure he's about 11 or 12 by now. Still going strong and always ready for pasta.

Trystan - grey tabby - King of the Walk, my baby and a terrible bully to any who let him get away with it. He is a loverboy with me...settles on my pillow next to my ear and purrs me to sleep.He must be about 10 or so now, too. Acts like a kitten almost always. Found in the wheel well of a pickup truck, yelling loudly for rescue.

Kipling - beautiful Siamese, also rescued. He is so gorgeous and funny. Very much a "you touch me when I say so" kind of cat. With patience, after all of these years, about two years ago, he finally started sleeping on our bed and let me pet him as he sleeps, but he turns into a martial arts champion whenever I try to pick him up and he must weigh about 12-14 pounds, all of it muscle. We've had him since about 1997 or so, so he's about the same age as Trys. THIS year, he has consented to actually come sit on my lap, TWICE, but left as soon as I moved. I have the feeling he would be even chummier if he was on "only" cat, but at least has accepted that we are not axe-murderers and he can be safe within our home. Obvious early kittenhood issues there.:-)

We love our Keepers very much.

These "blogs" by a cat and a dog have been all over the internet like fleas, but take a look if you haven't seen them.

We have a time-share in a fat white cat called Bud, who turned up as a stray about 10 years ago, was taken in by several people, and likes to spread himself around several houses just to keep his options open.

(I think that he thinks that we don't all know he uses several houses. He looks guilty if one of us visits another and catches him out at one of his other safe havens).

I heard a great story of another cat that had two houses. The families were near neighbours in a big city neighbourhood, but barely knew each other. Cat would come in at evening for neighbour1, get fed, stay the night, leave in the morning. There was a death in neighbour2's family, so neighbour1, feeling a bit guilty about not knowing close neighbours, took a plate of sandwiches over. And there is cat, ensconced in an armchair. Turns out he would go straight from neighbour1's house in the morning, meow in at neighbour2's, get fed again, spend the day, get fed and put out for the night and head for neighbour1's house.

We've had quite a variety of pets over the years - hamsters, gerbils, rats, guinea pigs, rabbits, fish, cats, terrapins, turtles. We are left with one box turtle (the other died a few months ago), 2 terrapins and some pond fish. I am a great animal lover but nothing will be replaced from now on. We are having problems with the terrapins at the moment (an annual thing) because the male is bullying the female for her attentions so we have had to separate them for a short period of time to spare her the stress.

Seamus. An 8 year old pedigreed yellow Labrador Retriever. Loves to play and has a definite sense of humor.

What hasn't been said is that, when Kendall first got Seamus as a wee puppy, he was such a handful that Kendall nearly gave him away. His previous dog, Clancy, had been a model hound, well behaved and biddable. Seamus wasn't (it's that sense of humour that causes the problem!).

Luckily Seamus got a reprieve when he was seen sleeping with his paws left over right, just as Clancy had done. Now he's the indulged 'baby' of this family and friends. SINSULL would steal him if she could and he almost always comes to the song circles where he gets lots of attention.

He's still a handful - we can't let him off the leash on the beach yet but I am working on that, with treats of all kinds and a whistle. This is a dog that really lives for food! He's a very strong dog so has had to have some very firm training to heel to make sure that I don't get pulled off my feet when walking him but he has made amazing progress in that respect.

He tends to follow me around, thinking that there might be a chance for a walk or treats, and has a habit of laying on my feet so that I can't use the reclining part of my chair, or crawling under the recliner when it's up so that I have to move him out to get out the chair. He occasionally climbs onto my lap - believe me, with a 90lb dog that leaves you feeling like a butterfly under glass, but he seems to enjoy the occasional cuddle with his people.

He isn't allowed on the couch here but is at SINSULL's when he gets to stay there while we're away. He does seem to understand where the line is drawn in each household though.

I've never really been a 'dog' person and have had mostly cats as pets. Seamus I adopted when I married Kendall - it was a case of love me, love my dog. Luckily it was the easiest thing in the world to get to love both the guys in this household.

Most of my adult life has been spent in the company of cats. At present there are four.
    1. Orca, a black and white tuxedo cat is the doyen and only female.
    2. Hector is a tortoise shell; slender, very fast, and imagines himself to be an incarnation of Pele. He never goes to the vet because he's uncatchable.
    3. Fenris is black; built like a bear, heavily armed, and usually a coward. On the rare occasions when he decides to contest an issue, he stalks rather than chases.
    4. Melvin is an idiot. White with a blue spot between his ears, he's only interested in food and laps. Obese, of course, but with four, we can't feed them separately.

Abu: A 13 year old black lab who has bone cancer. She's been the most gentle lab we've ever had, ever loyal to her papa and begrudgingly shares him with me. She's a sweet girl with a fierce bark who has always loved to play bird.

Amos: A 3 1/2 year old black cocker spaniel who has the good sense to run from rotten people. I had someone show up at my door one day (someone I knew) who was insistant on meeting the dogs (who were crated as they didn't know this person and can sometimes be a bit overprotective). I let Amos out first because he is the smallest of all our dogs. He ran into the computer room where this person was sitting on a piano bench. He sniffed her foot and hightailed it right outside..letting himself out even! Needless to say that he did NOT approve of her! Smart dog! He is full of energy, LOVES to roll about in the snow and at night, he is a cuddle bunny. He's a LARGE cocker spaniel who truly believes he is a lap dog. WOOF.

Belle: Belle is a yellow lab who is 9 years old. She is our only remaining yellow lab. She has the most beautiful expressive brown eyes and is a one family dog. She is timid around folks she does not know, often growling and snarling.

Little Guy: Little Guy is a black lab (9 years old) who is absolutely monstrous in size. He is very clever and when he is tied out, he has a THICK chain as he continues to snap the more normal sized ones. We once had a butcher come to the house to pick up some pigs and the pigs got loose. They ran down around the backbarn where Little Guy happened to be tied up. The butcher, who has arms like Popeye said he wouldn't go near there if there was a thousand dollars on the ground. LOL. Little Guy is BIG with a BIG bark but a sweet little puppy heart who loves to play KITTY or with his BIG stick (6 feet long with a 3 inch diameter...yes, an outside toy!).

Jake is a 12 year old black lab. He is very gentle, even tempered and absolutley LOVES to play with plastic water jugs. In the summer we fill a gallon milk jug full of water and hang it from a pole. He LOVES to jump at it and bite it which of course springs several leaks. He runs around under it trying to catch all the water....very funny to watch!

Elby is a 4 year old black lab. He is also very sweet natured but only with people. He chases the cats and has been known to kill a few chickens. He has a square, short nose and big floppy ears...he is absolutely a cutie pie! He loves to sit on top of his house and bark at deer in the field (when he is outside).

Fester: Fester is a gray tiger cat who is almost 16 years old. He is *my* cat and can be found sitting on the back of my chair or in my lap every single night. Frequently when I am sitting at the table, he will come over, stand on his hind feet, tap me with his front paw and give a LOUD MEOW! He (like all the other cats) are spoiled rotten. He has very few of his own teeth left and therefore gets canned cat food that he will SOMETIMES share with some of the other cats.

Daphne: Daphne is a calico cat with a sneering lip, extremely soft fur and a chaperone streak running through her. She likes to meow (or tap with claws out) when her Papa and I snuggle. She also likes to play surrogate mother to any kittens we have even though she has been spayed and has no kittens of her own in 7 years.

Goose: Goose is a gray tiger cat and is the son of Daphne. He is a big cat who will come to you when he wants to snuggle but don't even think of picking him up unless you want some nice red claw marks on your skin.

Norm: Norm is also the son of Daphne, aged 7 years old. He's another big cat who will let you know when he wants love. He loves to snuggle and kneed at night.

Millie: Millie is a very tiny, gray tiger female cat who showed up on our deck about 3 years ago. She is not very affectionate but when she does sit with you, she likes to sniff your clothing and kneed...ALOT! Her tiny face resembles the face of an owl without a beak.

Murph: Murph is a large, gray tiger cat who likes to nurse on your collar. He is a snuggle bunny and a sniffer. He is also a stunning cat, absolutely GORGEOUS!

Dan: Dan is the brother to Murph but he is smaller and far less social. He likes to sit on the edge of the tub when anyone is in the shower. He is also absolutely GORGEOUS!

Emma: Gray tiger kitten (4 months), finger biter, with thick fluffy fur.

Burnie: Gray tiger kitten with a kink in his tail. He's very gentle and loves to snuggle under a blanket with me. When he isn't playing or snuggling with me, he can be found sitting on the ledge of the woodstove, directly in front of the glass. He has singed his whiskers more than once, hence his name.

Sid Vicious: A teeny, tiny, (who almost died) kitten who loves his papa. He prefers to sleep in the crook of his papa's arm. His fur is wirey and he attempts to take on the big cats on a daily basis. He is our scrapper.

Boots: Boots is our outside cat who someone dropped off. He comes running to the car when I get home and loves to jump up in the car as well. He is gray with a white underbelly and THICK, THICK fur. He is a lover and gets lots of attention even though he is outside.

We also have 20 chickens and 7 roosters of different varieties.

And then there's Tom, the full grown Bronze Turkey. He has a wonderful gobble and shimmering feathers.

:) Michelle

Oh...and then there's JACK! Jack is the "laziest cat on earth" who is a soft gray tiger cat. Half of one of his ears is missing because he decided to scrap with one of the bigger cats when he was just a teeny, tiny bundle of fur. These days, Jack is our second largest cat. He is a lover, a snuggle bunny and purrs louder than our tractor. =^..^=

I am currently owned by 3 beautiful cats.

#1 is Madmardigan (or Maddy to his friends), a white and tan domestic longhaired male. He is the son of the late Mara Jade and has been with me since the moment he was born. He's 9 years old but you'd never know it, as he is still very kitten-like. He loves to cuddle and is my little shadow, going everywhere that I go. I truly believe that he and I have known each other before somehow as I've never had a stronger connection with a pet and I've had many pets...

Then there are Mikey and Sheldon, litter mates, (who are named after my 2 favorite Montreal Canadiens players) black domestic shorthaired males who have breathed new life into the house after the loss of Mara Jade last year. They just turned 1 year old last weekend. I call them "the matrix twins" because they will fly at each other from opposite ends of the apartment, meeting in the middle in mid-air and do a really cool twisting-wrestling-who's going to land on top flip-thingie in slow motion, that is pretty impressive to watch. They both have the most striking amber eyes I've ever seen.
While kittens can certainly try one's patience I'm so glad I decided to get both of these boys and after the death of his mum Maddy welcomes the company...at least most of the time.

In the household, 5 dogs and 2 cats.
Mr and I have Molly and Fagin, 8 month old Tri coloured Pem Corgis.
Daughter has Smokey and The Bandit. Smokey has only one eye, lost the other to an infection. Tri headed black.

The Bandit is a med. red, equal opportunity cuddler. He goes limp when he sleeps. Impossible to move.

Max--the Grand dog. Doberman/blue heeler mix. Smart like a heeler, goofy like a Dobe. Escape artist. Knows all the police quite well.

Yentle--Standard grey tabby, about 17. Her only virtues are that she is just a Good Cat and likes to play with the neighbors dog.

Boudicca--an evil Calico, 4. Thinks she is a dog. Likes to ride on the inflatable boats in the pool. Doesn't mind water too much. Best stuffed toy the dogs ever had.

Bathsheba Everdeen ~ A rescued long haired black and white female cat. Bathsheba called so because 'when she looks up there I'll be and when I look up there she'll be'. Absolutely stunning with a perfect mask. Rules us with a rod of iron. Supervises extremely well. Bathsheba is now 10 years old we think. She has been with us for nearly 7 years. When the kind people from the rescue centre went to collect her, the people who had her just came to the door and said here she is, we don't want her. They just gave her to them on the doorstep with nothing. When we went to look the next day she was so traumatised that she wouldn't come out of her box, so Jon put his hand in, she snuggled it and he said she's chosen us, without actually seeing her. We love her to bits.

Isolde of the White Paws ~ which are usually a bit muddy owing to her loving to go and make sure the cows are all ok and that the farm next door doesn't need any help. Again a rescued cat. Isolde is nearly 4 years old and acts like a kitten still. She loves to run about the garden, chases anything that moves but gives us all of her love unconditionally. Isolde called so because Isolde was a Queen of Cornwall and our Isolde is a Queen and lives in Cornwall. Loves to help!

Shadow - dark tabby that was preowned by someone who possibly dumped her in a box or a bag because she hates enclosed spaces. Found her 16 years ago when she was about 2. She's got one tooth left and is starting to sleep longer and deeper but she can still bounce around.

Raven - 2 yr old former male black cat, has about 12 white hairs on him, scattered all over. He's completely barmy and has been known to eat Christmas decorations. He's happy to sit on the side of the bath when you're in it, but he doesn't like the bubbles.

Then there's the Shopkeeper (aka Felix) who lodges with us despite many attempts to remove him from the premises. Known as the Shopkeeper after the Mr Benn cartoon series where suddenly, as if by magic, the shopkeeper appears. It's from the trick of appearing in the kitchen in the time it takes to open a ring pull lid on a tin of catfood.

Ah, yes...I had blocked that out of my mind. I must say these 2 are perhaps the smartest cats I've had. I left a plastic container of treats out on the table one time when Dad and Jacqui were going to be coming in (I wasn't home) because Mikey likes to make a break for the free world and they're not allowed out so they need to be distracted anytime someone is around the door...by the time Jacqui came in they had knocked the container onto the floor, wrestled the top off and dumped out and eaten half the treats.
I put the container in the kitchen cupboard and the little buggers jumped up onto the counter, opened the cabinet and repeated the process. I've often said if they ever learn to open cans I'm out of a job...

Three cats,all long -haired Persians,so the living-room needs hoovering about every two hours , especially now we have global warming. They are all " rescue" cats, so are a bit neurotic. Jasmine ( Jazzy ) is constantly "chirrupping ", and often rushes around madly & hurls herself out of windows. Poppy likes to see what"s on the internet,& gets very aggressive if she can't sit on your lap,or preferably the keyboard,when you"re 'on Line '. ---She hasn't noticed me yet !!---TEE HEE !! And Gerry has a cleft palate,or something,& can't breathe properly, so he constantly grunts & snorts, like a demented pig !! And that"s it!! Believe me, it's enough !! ( although Madame Bubblyrat, AKA Anniecat, would like us to have a donkey sanctuary !!)

Presently, I have only one cat, a torbie (a tortoiseshell tabby, brown and orange with no white markings). I saw her at a local pet store that displays cats rescued by the local shelter (shelter volunteers come into the store to care for the cats, and the purchase-price money goes to the shelter). She was about 4 months old and was in a cage with kittens half her age, whom she tolerated but seldom interacted with.

She seemed very docile in the store, but when I adopted her and took her (in her cardboard carrier) and her new supplies to the checkout counter, the clerk said she was quite a noisy problem child. I've since learned that the clerk was right! She's almost 4 now, and has started to settle down into a more gracious adult cat... but she's still noisy! I've gotten many long lectures from her about keeping her food bowl full, her bathroom water tap on and her litter box scooped.

The shelter had named her Madison and I kept the name, though I added the middle name May (as in Madison May do what I want her to do, and Madison May not). I also call her Chatty Maddie the Bratty Fatty.

I don't dare put dog 1 or dog 2 because my 2 brats would complain if they weren't #1.

    Billie - A small Beagle who is the alpha dog She's 3. and is her Daddy's girl. Almost lost her when my husband was in the hospital after his heart attack. She wouldn't eat for the neighbors. I came home to check on things and was finally able to get her to eat.

Little Bit - an almost 2 yr old black lab that doesn't fir her name any more. We were never suppose to keep her and she was just a tiny little thing when she was born, i started calling her little bit and the name stuck. The girl who said she wanted her, back out after seeing how big she would get. and then we lost her mother so she is here to stay.The beagle used to bully her quite abit but now she is faster and a whole lot bigger. so now, oh yeah billie still bullies her but has to work alittle harder. lol

Only 1 cat a huge yellow tom cat names Bob, Bob's a happy cat ,
Bob was an amish cat up till a couple of years ago, and then for some reason his owner decided to get rid of him, and he came to live with us. Part of one ear is missing due to a disagreement with a horse, i think bob still won that one. lol He's probally the most laid back cat I have ever seen.I have given him bathes and the only thing he does is cry a little , no scratching , no trying to get out, just an occasional meow. The lab for some reason thinks he is her stuffed toy . will slobber and play with him when she can, and allows it never have seen him claw or hiss at our dogs, now the neighbors jack russel thats a different story, those 2 are never gonna be friends. He is a long haired cat who at the beginning of winter is really quite handsome. Right now his fur is matted in some places and coming out in some,(hopefully this is a sign that spring is near), He looks pretty motely.
No other animals at this time but that is subject to change

Asha - a five year old bull mastiff officially belongs to my daughter who now lives in an apartment that does not allow five year old (or any year old) mastiffs or any dogs. An absolute sweetheart -not a mean bone in her slightly overweight body. Loves the couch. The meanest thing I ever saw her do is nose one of the five cats out of the way when she wants to plonk in front of the fire (see www.trubritrealty.com for a picture of the Queen).

Ahbib: oldest and first cat - possibly about 17 but going very strong. Inherited from a neighbor 12 years ago when my daughter cat sat her for two weeks. Definitely the Alpha animal around here. Grey and slinky.

Tucker: #2 cat - with us about 11 years - the story is he was checked out of the library.......they had a picture of a cat needing a home and my daughter's heart melted. He is the #1 cat in my heart, but sadly, not to be with us much long as cancer is having its evil way with him.

Felicity- #3 cat - taken in as a stray some 9 years ago. To put it in not too subtle terms, - a bitch of a cat. Mean, nasty and arrogant. One's heart goes out to the dumb younger cats who think she wants to play with them

Po: #4 cat - named for Edgar Allen. Looks like and sounds like, a black and white siamese -- most odd.

Em - #5 cat - named for his emeral green eyes. Po's best buddy - both came into the house about 7 years ago as a bribe to get my daughter to do something (the actual thing eludes me but I know I offered one kitten and she held out for two).

Cholly - was #6 cat -- packed her bags and moved to the neighbors when the dog moved in.

Millions of fish -- all unnamed.

Fortunately, the snakes, leper geckos and lizards and bearded dragons moved out with my daughter when she did - we were careful to add the language 'caged reptiles acceptable....' in her lease -- not sure if the landlord has ever counted how many of said caged reptiles she has........ daughter is going to be a vet tech (good career match!)

Two cory catfish, Timmy and Solomon, about 7 years old. Until about a year ago they were very playful, like puppies. All of our other "named" fish have departed, but we have two glo-light tetras (one is very sick). We also have three quarter-inch PYGMY cory catfish, which were easy to see when young, because they tumbled all around the tank eating constantly, but now are slower and more secretive. Also one remaining glass catfish, where you can see all its bones through clear skin. Besides these, about a hundred little snails (eew). When my son comes home from college in March, we'll get some more fish - especially some loaches to eat up these snails.

After dinner I was loading the dihwasher, left the door down while I was sorting something out, and came back to find Asha with her head inside the machine, giving the plates a pre-wash for all she was worth.
