Pets – A Photo Montage for Cees Photo Challenge

I have never entered one of Cee’s Fun Photo Challenges before, but the topic this week caught my attention. I live in a ZOO! Well not literally, but I do live with a menagerie of fury, feathered, scaly critters. So I couldn’t pass this one up. I present to you my “babies”. 🙂


This is Henry…our first English Mastiff. We lost him 2-1/2 years ago and I still miss him everyday.


This is Merlin. Born on Labor day…days before 9/11.


And Merlin’s Litter Mate, Sebastian.


Casey…a refugee that we found on the side of the road in 2005 at about 4 weeks of age.


This is Mr. Bean, a Sun Conure and our “watch” bird. Nobody steps on our front porch without Mr. Bean letting everyone know about it!


This is Maxwell, who is THREE YEARS OLD TODAY! 🙂 We adopted him the summer before Henry left us. After months of trying to console him, we decided he needed a buddy…


…so we rescued this handsome fellow, Winston, who will also be 3 in July. He had been abused and abandoned at only 6 months. We work on rebuilding his broken trust every day.


Meet Flash. He’s a Russian Tortoise that we inherited after a family member could no longer care for him. As you can see, he is spoiled at our house!


And finally, this is Lucy…I mean Ms. Lucy. She is the official queen of the house. We rescued her last fall after her family surrendered her to a high-kill shelter. She is blind and deaf, but that doesn’t stop her from getting around AND showing the big dogs who is boss! At 16, the Vet believes she still has 4-5 years to be spunky. We’ll take it!

Echoes of my Neighborhood

It’s Thursday and time for another entry in response to my friend Jacqueline’s photo challenge. A little glimpse into the place I call home.

This is a night view from the edge of my neighborhood. In the distance the famous Roanoke Star atop Mill Mountain watches over us all as we sleep.

…and for fun, I am adding a view of the floor in my kitchen…of my feet in fact…as they appear next to the front paws if my English mastiff puppy who hasn’t finished growing yet!!!! Welcome to my world! Haha!

Send your own photos from home by connecting HERE! Happy Thursday! 😊
