FAMILY

Okay, enough already! MORE SNOW! Yeah, it is snowing again, and has been since around 9am. It is now going on 4:30pm and no let up. My oldest daughter Rachael treated us to a visit and stayed about 4 hours. Her county is now at a Level 2 and it took her about 45 minutes to get home when under normal conditions it takes about 20 minutes. I was relieved to know she made it home safely. It has occurred to me that I have mentioned that we have 2 grown daughters, but never said a word about the other little critters that share our home.
 
Chewy.
Trixie Belle.
            They don't look like they could do much damage, but don't let the innocent looks fool you. Chewy was only 3 months old when he killed a small rabbit in the back yard, and Miss Trixie Belle was his accomplice. I had to remove both of them from the scene of their crime to clean up the mess. Yorkshire terriers are ratters and very protective of family and home. They are loving little mops. Not a day goes by when they don't do something to make us laugh. This family loves it's pets. I read once that the true character of a man is how he treats dumb (meaning non-vocal) animals. They have no voice in which to speak if they are treated badly. My belief is that if you have a pet you should take care of it, and in turn they will be the most loyal friend you have for their lifetime. I do believe God put them on this earth to show us what unconditional love is. We can learn a lot from the animals we love and who love us back.
