My love....???

My love is my family... Families come in many forms for us "The Essess" here is our family... Sophie will shortly turn 13! Silky Terrier. She is Curlypops prodigal sons mother! Here she is in her bed, a kids couch from the Op shop that I got for $2. And a donut bed and towel. She sleeps next to me everynight close to the heater... SHe has the cataracts on her eyes and recently began going deaf!

Shelby will be 3 years old in August, black Labrador asleep on her Foldup Trundle bed scored at a Garage Sale for $4.00.... Shes having her afternoon sleep with Snowball and her Teddy Bear..


Snowball is Mr Essess little boy kitteh, he is 5 months old and seems to think that the Labrador is his mother.....

This is my 5 month old kitteh Sparkles... Sleeping.. We went to get one kitten and came home with two because Mr S decided that they would need a friend to play with??



Another photo of Sophie with longer hair, she usually has a haircut in summer to keep her cool...




Shelby with one of her many Teddy Bears in her mouth! I buy a few from the Op Shop when they are cheap so that her and her little friend Mr Socket can play tug of war, usually meaning the Bear becomes demolished..?







My little man Mr Socket turned two on New Years Eve, he is a Chihuahua X Jack Russell...
I went and picked him out myself. Mr S thought I was nutts getting a third dog but Shelby being young needed a young dog to play with.
Mr Socket had bad teeth and an overbite so I took him home fearing no one would want him. His overbite grew out and he has crooked teeth just like me! He is somewhat sooky but gets quite grumpy when moving him whilst he is tired.
We put it down to Little Dog Syndrome.....
Who forms your family? Let me know!

Your dogs and kittens are so cute. One dog, a boy. Two cats, one of each. Both boys are very trying!!!!!!

We have 4 dogs at the moment and another one due on the weekend. Shhh. Don't tell the neighbours. Actually, only three of the dogs are ours, two papillions - father and daughter - and a little chihuahua. The other two are long term care animals as my daughter has a little business of petsitting. I am not really an animal person yet they all bring me heaps of delight. It's just the vacuuming up dog hair that gets a bit dreary. Cherrie

PS Our girl papillion gets very cranky when sh is tired. Her mother was the same. Non of the boys are like that though. The chi gets so, so tired but hopes no one will notice that he is falling asleep on his legs and put him to bed.
