The Pet Page
We are the caretakers of three very spoiled animals. Lady is
our little German Shepherd. She was named after the dog in Lady
and the Tramp. She loves to play catch (Don calls it Slobber-ball).
She also enjoys watching TV with Don and Barbara. Lady has a very
special dog house. She has her own big-screen TV, VCR, ceiling fan,
fridge, washer, dryer, sofa, giant pillow, all the comforts of home.
Little B is one of our two cats. She
is also spoiled beyond hope. As soon as she figures out that Barbara
is awake in the morning, she starts meowing like crazy to make
sure that we don't somehow forget to feed her. Occasionally,
she messes up and wakes Don up prematurely. Big mistake. Then she
gets chased through the house until she is finally caught and thrown
into the dog house.
Little B is known for her unfriendly disposition. She doesn't like
strangers. She was born on Halloween and she acts that way. Don
calls her "Leona" (as in Helmsley) because she lives in a life of
feline luxury and complains about it constantly. Little B is capable
of a fierce growl. Approach with caution!
An then there is Max. Max is proud. Max is
big. Max is big and proud. He started out life as a construction
worker. I guess he was responsible for rat patrol. Anyway, he was
"rescued" from the construction site and wound up in Barbara's possession.
Max weighs in at 19 pounds. That is twice the size of a normal cat.
Little B is a mackerel tabby, and Max is a mackerel flabby. He has
a very serious meow, like he is saying "Hello."
