Is your family like ours?  With pets running around all over the place. As far back as I can remember there have been family pets in our home.  Sometimes they can be a pain in the "you know where", but for the most part what would we do without them!  They are an important part of our family and when one of them gets sick or passes away you quickly discover how precious they are and how much comfort and companionship they give us. So this page is dedicated to our little (and sometimes not so little) friends.
