Introducing…Dusty & Lilly the cats and Henry the dog
My name is Dusty and I am the oldest and the biggest of the four legged beings in this home. My parents, Fred and Kerry adopted me 3 days after my previous owners had to put me up for adoption. My dad calls me “the gentle giant”. Don’t know about that, I’m just easy going.
I was an only child for a while, but then Lilly was found alone under our house. At first dad told mom to leave her for her mommy to come back, but the next morning dad found her at the end of the road. She’s been part of the family ever since.
Hi, my name is Lilly. I don’t like to come out to see people too much. Like Dusty said, I came into the family really young. I was so little, mom bottle-fed me for the first couple weeks. I used to attack that silly bottle so much, that mom was worried I wasn’t really getting any milk. Oh, but I was.
So when I was little, mom and dad worried about leaving me alone with Dusty. When he plays, he gets on top of his toys and stomps them…and gets fired up. They kept me in a tall muffler box during the day, but one day I escaped! Mom and dad looked for me for an hour, but eventually found me curled up in a blanket. That was the last time I stayed in the box. Hee hee.
Spring ahead two years…last February dad, mom and grandma brought Henry home. Things haven’t been so quiet since. I’m not saying I don’t like him, he’s just a little hyper.
HI! HELLO! I’M HENRY! HAPPY TO BE HERE! ACTUALLY, I’M SUPER EXCITED TO BE HERE! I WAS ABOUT TWO MONTHS OLD WHEN MY NEW FAMILY ADOPTED ME. I’VE BEEN RUNNING AND BARKING EVER SINCE!
WHEN MY FAMILY PICKED ME UP, THEY SOON REALIZED I HAVE A LITTLE TROUBLE IN THE CAR. I DROOL, A LOT! IT’S GOTTEN BETTER…BUT WE ARE WORKING ON IT.
PLAYING AND RUNNING’S MY FAVORITE! I REALLY LIKE PLAYING WITH MY BEST FRIENDS DUSTY AND FRED! LILLY DOESN’T COME AROUND TOO MUCH. PROBABLY CUZ I GET SO EXCITED WHEN I SEE HER. I JUST GET SO EXCITED! CAN’T WAIT FOR US TO GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER BETTER!
Everyone loves their furry family! As ‘parents’, we want a happy, healthy life for them. Fred and I are not trained professionals and are not claiming to be, but we love our kids. We want what’s best for them.
We have had some challenges along the way. Potty training Henry. Finding the right food for them. Grain free? Organic? So many choices! Which veterinarian should we go to? And all the toys that say are indestructible… Henry has found a way!
So how do we figure it out?
Fred and I wanted to create a place to share stories, our experiences, adorable pictures, and news we hear about. But, we also need some help! What does your friend like to play with? Have you found an amazing vet in your area? Pet friendly store?
Please just make us a promise. Please share what IS working. Of course share challenges and questions, but our goal is to help each other.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
