Then, sometime after Rusty died, Chelle and I were given kittens for Easter.. both were black. Nosey & Sparkie...LOL... we had those cats forever! They were truly our sidekicks! Nosey was hit by a car when I still lived at home, Sparkie died the same way a few years later when my sister had moved out.
When we bought our house, I wanted a cat - Roger said NO. So I got him a puppy... Rascal. He was my shadow for 14 years. It was very hard to lose him.
When Rascal was about a year, we got Booger, the cat that Roger said NO to earlier!! He was an indoor cat until we moved and then he became indoor/outdoor. He ran out one night when we were leaving and we never saw him again...
Dink came along about a year after we got Booger, (Yes, we had two dogs and a cat all at the same time). Dink was a black lab that was huge! Dink passed not too long after Booger disappeared and right before Hershey came along. Rascal and Hershey were roomies for a while before Rascal passed.
That brings me to current pets - Hershey -
She is my current shadow, but not as bad as Rascal. She has the kiddos that she can follow as well!
We also have a red beta - Reggie and a blue beta - Bubbles
