Recently we added a new member to the family, a guinea pig name Calliope. I eye the guinea pigs every time we wander into a pet store, but have resisted getting one. Well, about a month ago I thought hard about getting a pig, and decided against it. Still, I wandered the Internet, reading up […]

Much in the way every boy needs a puppy, every pig needs a friend. With Callie healthy and happy after recovering from her initial eye infection, I decided she needed some company. And so, after a trip to the movies (The Pink Panther – a fun, feel good movie that is worth seeing, but not […]

Crazy Rodent Lady

by @ Friday, September 15th, 2006. Filed under Critters

So I was chatting with a friend the other day, and he was ragging on me for the total number of rodents I have (this was just after I bought Braylon and Kamerion). I jokingly said I was trying to become known as the Crazy Rodent Lady, and Mike, obliging smart-ass that he is, has […]

Duck Herding

by @ Saturday, June 16th, 2007. Filed under Critters

Several weeks ago now, I made the trek up to Waynesburg, PA to attend the Sheep and Fiber Festival. It was a small festival, but it was something to do to get out of the house. As part of the festival, there was a herding demonstration. A woman came in from Ohio toting two dogs, four ducks, […]

I never did figure out a way to tell Kamerion apart from Braylon. But one of them is a terrible beggar. She knows when the pigs squeal it means I have food, and she’ll wake up and come up to her second story to beg for a bite. As I was being photo happy this […]

It’s taken me a while to get to, but finally I’ve found the time to get up a post about Kaiser. Kaiser is Kevin and Jen’s new boxer puppy. They’d only had him a week when they brought him with them to come for a visit on December 10th. Kaiser is the cutest little thing, […]

Kaiser Comes to Visit

Some pictures of Kevin’s puppy Kaiser romping around the back yard. How’d you like to run into that in a dark alley?

More Kaiser Pictures

Here’re some more pictures of Kaiser, this time obtained at Friday night’s river walk.

Pig 3

by @ Saturday, September 2nd, 2006. Filed under Critters

Around a month ago (give or take) I was at the barn talking with Nancy. We were discussing how old our bunnies were, and Nancy was lamenting that since she didn’t want to see hers live alone, she kept buying friends for it, and he kept outliving them. My poor bunny lives alone, but at […]

Piggie Pictures

by @ Saturday, February 17th, 2007. Filed under Critters

I was a bit picture happy today, so I have a number to post. First are some new pictures of the pigs. There have been some changes in the piggie’s lives of late. Just after Christmas poor Pig 3 developed a pretty nasty bladder infection, she had a bald spot on her bum from mites, […]

Rocky & Conor

Here’re a couple pictures of the dogs I took while out in the yard today.

The Baby

by @ Thursday, June 22nd, 2006. Filed under Critters

Kassie (otherwise known as “The Baby”, although she’s now 2 years old) has taken to sleeping on the cat tree in my room, and she often just hangs over the edge in ways I wouldn’t think comfortable. So yesterday I disturbed her sleep to get some photos. But first, is a picture I dredged up […]

The Kats’ New Toys

by @ Saturday, September 2nd, 2006. Filed under Critters

Yesterday we were out running errands, and we ended up at PetCo to get more cat litter. I of course always wander through the little critters section, and in a cage for adoption they had a little white dwarf hamster. She was *so* cute, and of course I immediately wanted one. We got the litter, […]

The Piggy Palace

by @ Wednesday, June 7th, 2006. Filed under Critters

For some time I’ve wanted to add a second level to my baby guinea girls’ cage, but I couldn’t quite figure out how to do it. With the cats, it needed to be fully enclosed, but it also needed to be easy to get to the pigs and to clean. The beginning of May, I […]

The Squirrel

by @ Wednesday, June 14th, 2006. Filed under Critters

I went out yesterday to check on my peas in the garden, and was halfway along the pool when I noticed a little squirrel at the bird feeder. I was pretty close, and he seemed oblivious to me. So I went back into the house to grab the camera, and came up with a few […]
