Oh, our sweet pets!

Oh how we love our pets! We have a few. Spike is the head honcho as far as we're concerned. He's the brown/black guy laying down in his pic. We adopted him from our local Humane Society when he was 5 years old. He was our very first pet as adults and he has been so wonderful from day 1. He is pushing 14 years old and I'm afraid his body is starting to give out. But we are enjoying his calm & quiet presence every day he's with us. He was never a high maintenance dog (except for all the hair he leaves behind).

Caleb's cat Rawlie is about 4. I'm not much of a cat person but our son Caleb is. He always wanted a cat and I always said no way. One day I was at the Bellevue Farmer's market and someone was giving a way kittens. I had a week moment and thought I would bring one home. I asked if they had a girl and they gave me Rawlie. It wasn't until a friend was holding our new kitty that we found out "she" was a truly a he. This really is Caleb's cat, but he is SO tolerant of anybody. He let's Avery drag him around and he just goes limp. He's also huge, he was from a farm cat so I'm sure that's why he's so big.

Jack-Jack is 3. He is our little Havanese, and he want's to be top dog for sure. Zuka just turned 1 and is a Dogue de Bordeaux aka French Mastiff. I will post more on them later.
