Meet The Kids

Kinda a quiet Thursday evening and I haven't the energy to generate one creative thought. So here are a few pictures of the guys or as they are known here as the "girls and the "kids" I'll introduce them with the oldest and the biggest and then head down the list . Interestingly, the oldest is the biggest and so on until you get to the last one who of course is the youngest and the smallest. Makes things easy that way. And boy let me tell you with 5 dogs we love easy!! :) All of the guys but little Rubi Ru are adopted. Rubi Ru is a gift from one of my closes and dearest Mexican Friends, Luci

Okay as Ed Sullivan use to say "an oooon with toenite's shoew"

This is Talli LW adopted her from the Shelter in Boise when she was but a tiny fluff ball No longer :) Tallie is a swelt 80 lbs of Yellow Lab. She and LW have been together for 12 years in our dog pack she is our alpha

This is sweet Nickie, I adopted her from the Boise shelter when she was 4ish. She is our mystery child. We don't have any info on her past but we know she was beat and yelled at. She is our little lover she is shy, and never argues, she is just happy be be with people that love her. She can never understand why the others grump from time to time :) She is our midsize black lab she's 8 years old and is 75 or there about lbs

This is Nena. Luci and Tony rescued her from the street as a 5 week old puppy that boys were abusing. :( She is a real live breed called a "street dog" Her parents were from the streets back many generations. These are very different dogs that look the same and have the same behaviors the world over. She was full of worms and covered in ticks None of the four of us, or even the Vet was sure she would live to be a healthy dog. But oh my she is one (no actually) she is 10 big handfuls. She is perched up on greyhound legs and weighs around 35-40 lb's of pure muscle!! She is still a big pup at almost 2 years :)

This is Charli he is our little "Full Priced" rescued Chihuahua. He was sitting in a tiny cage in an unheated store window with no water and food to big for him to chew last winter. He was dehydrated and minutes away from hypothermia. He was a puppy mill baby that was pulled from his litter at 4 weeks so he could be sold as a Christmas present. The store owner gave us a 100$ break if we payed cash for him right then. So my white knight reached into the hip pocket of his armor and said fine. I guess I don't have to tell you that the two "men" in the family are each others shadows ;) Chari is 14months old is maybe 4inches tall and 4lbs of big bad brave :)

This little sweetheart is Rubi Ru (pronounced like Pooh's buddy Roo) She is the first daughter of the last litter of Rubi and Chewi's pups. She is a gift from Luci and Tony, so like I said she is our only non rescued pup. She and I tend to chum around together. She loves to sit on my lap when we are in our little art corner creating together :). She is 8 months old (fully grown) and weighs in at a hair under 3 lbs and is about 3&1/2 inches off the ground.

So there they are the whole famdamily!! And if you don't think we make quite a sight motoring down the hi-way in the "Yellow Submarine" :)

Have a most audatious day or evening Bloglandian friends depending on where in the world you are ;)

I love yer precious rescues and Rubi Ru too. That is so touching of you. I do rescues too, two giant dogs and four cats are our permanent residents, along with my "reject rats" that were going to be killed instead of merely tortured in a lab.

Looks like you have a wonderful underfoot crew! Give 'em all a kiss from the Olde Dame.

Your post is so touching. It brought tears to my eyes. How wonderful that you have found so much room and love in your home for needy furbabies.

What an amazing little menagerie you have going here. I get a big smile on my face just thinking of the site you must make going down the road.

Thank you for sharing, and bless you for having such caring hearts. I cannot tolerate someone neglecting or being cruel to an animal.

I so enjoyed reading about your pups. You have such a kind soul. Our dogs are the very best part of our lives. I can't imagine a day without them.Sharon

Oh...I love all your fur babies. And loved reading about the rescues. They are so lucky to have you as their Mom. Both mine are rescues too and they are the BEST! Thank You Patti for the birthday card. That meant so much to me. I have just come home from a two day buying trip or treasure hunt with loads of goodies for the boutique. The birthday angels were with me because I found so many gorgeous things. Hope you are having a fabulous weekend. xo Lynn

Bonjour Big Sis!

Ohhhhhh, thank you so much for posting the wonderful pictures of all the kids! Dr. Doolittle has NOTHING on you or me for that matter. Canine Chaos at it's best!

It was 6 degrees here this morning and it's miserable! Our house goes on the market on March 1 and as soon at it sells we are heading south and living on the coast...I am SICK of this cold weather!

Kiss all the babies for me!
