Our Animals

Hi blog friends, I am on my second marriage. My wonderful husband's name is Tom. Tom and I have been together 27 years and counting. Tom came with a cat, Tiger. Tiger was a little over 2 years old when we all got together. Tiger loved his Daddy very much and he fit right in, in no time.
At the time Tom came I had a GSD and two cats. ( I will show you the two cats at some later post ) My GSD was 4 and a half. His name was Bruce. All the animals got along really well.

The picture below is Tom's Tiger. Tiger had personality plus. He loved dogs better then cats!!You could always find him near Bruce.

Below is my rescue mutt Bambi. The people that have been following my blog know all about Bambi but the newbes don't. So I will try to slip something in that is new for them too. Bambi came from the animal shelter. She had been adopted out 2 times before me. So I was her last change. She had been spayed and still had her stitches in when I got her. The first time she was adopted out the people bought a crate for her, and when they brought her back they brought the crate too. I got a pretty good deal. She was spayed and had a crate and been named Brandy.
Tom and I are tea totalers, so I changed her name to Bambi. Bambi had picked up kennel cough
in her stay in the animal shelter. The very next day after getting her, I took her to the vets, and the vet said that it was a good thing that I got her because she was real close to dying.
Bambi is a very good girl. She works very hard to please the people around her. We think that Bambi was about 4 months old when she came to her forever home. She is having her birthday right now. The last half of October. we celebrate her birthday! She is 12 years old!!!!!
She has been with me 11years and 8 months.

Below is the animal that made me the animal lover! Meet Bruce!! Here in this picture he is 4 months old. My first husband had a silver German Shepherd, He picked out this female to mate with him and Bruce was the stud fee. Bruce looked just like his Mother. Bruce was so smart. So well behaved. But he was a puppy and had to be house broken and taught a lot of things. We developed a very special bond.
I am getting tired, so I will see you all tomorrow.
Love you, The Animal Lover, Fern
P. S. My love for Bruce was the deepest love I have ever felt for any animal.
