I was going through some pictures on my computer recently and thought I’d post some pictures of our pets. Some of these dogs and cats belonged to our daughters, Becky and Tiffany. Most of these animals are gone now, but all were a big part of our family. Our pets are well taken care of and were all very spoiled. Out of all these animals, only two of the cats, Hershey and Nomi, are still with us today. When I pass away, and If I come back as a dog or a cat, I want to live in this house!

Jewel was one of my favorite dogs, ever. She was a bit of a psycho, especially during a storm but she was very playful and a great Frisbee dog. Jewel loved the snow and couldn’t wait to jump right into the deepest snow drift she could find. I really miss Jewel.
Nomi is a very old cat. I’m guessing fourteen or fifteen. She wouldn’t come near me until about a year ago. Now she waits on the bed for me to pet her almost every night. Nomi is still in very good health considering her age. Way better than my health!
Sammy was Becky’s dog for many years. She took great care of Sammy. While in Chicago, Becky would make Sammy wear booties so his feet didn’t get cold while walking him outside. How’s that for spoiled. Becky was and still is a Vet Tech. Her help with all the animals over the years has been a blessing.
Tiffany was the proud owner of Mason, the big Rottie. Mason was a very cool dog and didn’t have a mean bone in his body. Mason loved cuddling with Hershey and that was quite a site.
As we write children’s books about Robby the Robin and his flock of feathery friends, we try to include our pets into the story line So far Hershey is the villain Cat in the first book and Sammy the Dalmatian helps the birds by giving them some valuable advice. Both Nomi and Hershey are written into the third book. Hershey is still trying to catch those birds and Nomi has fun just watching Hershey fail, then laughing at him.
I hope Jewel, Sammy, Prince, Foxy, Nomi, Hershey, Mason and Thea know we are thinking of them.
