When I brought Reginald home, he was supposed to be an outside dog, but because he's no trouble inside, that's where he spends a lot of his time, except when I'm doing the housework, because he tends to get frantic trying to find me, then slips on the wood floor. He sleeps a lot of the time, and still gets spooked by sharp noises. He's amazingly alert, and will come to me with a small tap on the knee. He loves his little walks, and wants to sniff everything. Reginald would be a loving, loyal, low maintenance companion for some lucky person. Whether or not it will be me, I don't know yet. He's only my second foster dog, and if I keep him, I'll be restricted in what future foster dogs I take on. And I'd like to keep fostering. We'll see.
Esmerelda lived with us for a couple of months, then one night she ripped through a window screen, and disappeared into the night, never to be seen again.
My cousin found Puss as a kitten, stuck in the wall cavity of her shed at Gunns Plains. She convinced me to keep her. She wasn't an affectionate cat when she came here, but became more so as time went on.
"Thousands - millions and billions - of animals are killed for food. That is very sad. We human beings can live without meat, especially in our modern world. We have a great variety of vegetables and other supplementary food, so we have the capacity and responsibility to save billions of lives." - His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
