Weekly Photo Challenge: Companionable

When I saw this Weekly Photo Challenge: Companionable on The Daily Post at WordPress, I knew I just had to post about a few of my little companions. I have had so many wonderful little animals to come into my life and bless me. It would be way too long a post to try and present all of them. So, today I present the most recent. Allow me to introduce Bobby, Emmy and Pippin, our rescues!

Dogs

Bobby was our Boston Terrier. I’m sad to say we lost him last year to cancer at the age of 13. He was a leap-year baby, born February 29, 2000. Next to him sits our little Emmy, a Maltese we acquired back in 2000 at 3 months old from Florida Poodle Rescue. She turns 13 this fall and gets more ornery and lovable with each passing year! Our Poodle, Pippin, came to us one day about ten years ago out of nowhere. He came to our front door, a skinny, matted little mess and let me bring him in and clean him up. We tried for weeks to locate his owner to no avail. We had people tell us they had seen him roaming their neighborhood a few blocks away from us for the week prior. I was appalled that he could have been left alone for so long. A trip to the vet could not conclusively give his age but he guessed maybe around one year at that time. They share our home with five cats!

    Lovely dogs. 🙂 How kind of you to accommodate all of the needy animals. One of these days, we’ll have a puppy of our own because one of our boys has been begging for one. We are excited to have one. 🙂

    Apparently St. Francis gives out your name to homeless animals as he does ours 🙂

    Awww, really sweet, all the three of them in your couch ♥

  13. Why do they look like you have trained them to sit on the sofa together like that. Like the classic image of a triangle of Lions.*LOL* Nice of you so share this image with us all, as it says a lot about how happy they now are.

    What adorable dogs – so glad you were there to help them!

  24. The photo of Pippin brought warm fuzzy memories back to me. Pippin looks just like our toy poodle, Lucky, who we lost to old age in 2009. I needed a small fence put up and my husband is the one who did it. So Lucky is responsible for us getting together! I’d give anything to have him back. He was such a sweetheart! I have 4 cats in the house and 2 outside. Love the furbabies!Thanks for the visit. I’m glad you found the vital records checklist helpful.

    • You sound as crazy as me! We have 2 dogs and 5 cats inside and a momma and 3 kittens outside. We’re trying to get momma taken care of. She’s not ours, we don’t think she has a real home but she’s so sweet.
