Andy Dog is off again on another of his marvelous adventures!

Andy dog travels the world with Mr Claus. One of his many famous traveling friends.

Andy Dog
They do get around.

Richard, Andy's RL human companion says: Andy is one traveling young doggie! Even though he is only 3, he has been to Mexico three times, to Ashville, NC, Ogunquit, Maine and Saugatuck, Michigan–all on vacations. He should have his own frequent flyer program…

Andy Dog
…A friend took a photo of him when he was yawning, and substituted the photo for the MGM Lion–very cute.

Jake and we agree Richard, Andy is adorable and we hope he gets to travel around much more and we’d love to hear more about his travels!

Pounce Fluffiepants

Pounce Fluffiepants is small for a Maine Coon.
He’s only 11 1/2 pounds and grey/black striped with bits of tan tossed in and white paws and bib. Pounce has a Jumbo Cat Tail Teaser with the feathers on a stick. Hes’ had it a long time and it’s in very bad shape. The local pet stores have quit carrying this toy and so I was overjoyed when I found your site. dagmar01

Duckies!

Barbs Baby Ducks

Please enjoy the new multimedia story and continuing saga of the coop, the ducks and all the other critters right here at the facebook album These are the days of our Ducks!

“Captain Quack, I believe we have arrived”

Six day-old Indian Runner Ducks, five girls and one male.

Barbs Baby Ducks
Here, Suzie peeks over and says hello. You bet she knows better.

I’m so excited, I already have the new brooder set up! I have really missed the “chi-chi-chi” and pitter patter of little webbed feet!

Barbs Baby Ducks
Jake “the border kitty”, makes sure everyone is settling in ok.

Although I do keep them covered when I'm not in the room, the cats never see the baby ducks or chicks as prey. They could see them as a cute fluffy squeaky toy, so we are cautious.

Barbs Baby Ducks
As some of you may know we had a coop fire and lost several of our dear friends.

But we are re-coop-erating!

Barbs Baby Ducks
John has been therapeutically designing the new coop, bigger, better, more secure. We've also decided to move the coop to the other side by the left end of the pond. As of today it will be 8' x 16', all full-size doors, two large windows, wall-mounted radiant heaters, smoke alarms, motion detectors and eventually a video hookup to an in-process smart-house monitoring system. We want our duckies happy!

Mik and Minardi
Cheryl, Mik and Minardi we are so happy to see you back and out on walks together. The Pets Forums are awash in sunshine and happiness with your return!

Mik and Minardi
“Mik and I went for a walk; he waits for me to tell him it's okay to cross the street.”

Mik and Minardi
“Sometimes he gets lazy, but at least he’s smiling.”

Mik and Minardi
“And then one day, Minardi crawled into Mik’s little bed.”

See You at Rainbow Bridge Tilly

Tilly RIP

Tilly RIP
We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Tilly, beloved friend companion of Mary and Sadie. Tilly you are already missed greatly.

Tilly RIP
Mary once told Barb about Tilly: I live with Tilly, who understands enough nouns that she happily retrieves things like keys or shoes if I have them placed someplace she can reach. …at dinner time, I typically ask Tilly to go get Sadie's bowl for me, and every time she then runs off, wiggles it out of it's stand (Sadie has a cute little white-painted wrought iron stand for her bowls), and brings it to me so that I can fill it, with Sadie watching and spinning in circles the whole time!!

Tilly RIP
Tilly had to be one of the smartest dogs we've ever had the pleasure of knowing about. And Mary we wish you the very best in this difficult time. Bless you and Sadie.

Tilly RIP
Rest In Peace dear Tilly, you had and still have a lot of love wonderful friends and a great life.

The One and Only Presh

Presh

PreshPrecious Little-Love bam-bam Killer Salsbury is most famous for “helping me with everything I do” for 13 years.
She died of Chronic Kidney Failure (CRF) July 4, 2005

Presh
Once photographed on Barb’s shoulder for an article in the Sacramento Bee newspaper, Preshie became very well known, with friends around the world.
The cat who started it all! Precious Little-Love bam-bam Killer Salisbury was a little Manx Kitty Girl with a powerful personality and more charm than a barrel of monkeys.

Presh
Presh was also the founder of the original “Critter Chat”, an immensely popular forum where “the pets take over the keyboards and talk to each other”.

Presh
With some members and volunteer staff going back to the late 1990's, Critter Chat is still alive and well in The Pets Forums under the “Calling All Critters” section.

Presh
Well Presh! It’s been 15 years and we love you just as much and more. You changed animals and peoples lives with your inspiration and love. There will never be another like you. On this 15th anniversary of Vir-Chew-All we remind you too that all of our precious pets deserve the very best and more love than we can ever give. Be good to them.
