We have 3 cats (no pictures of them though...they are sneaky that way), and 3 dogs...sort of.

We have Trixie, a 2 year old border collie cross, whom we fostered for the SPCA, and ended up falling in love with:


And Hunny, our 6 month old chihuahua cross that my little girls fell in love with (don't have a picture of her, had a major computer crash, and have limited hard drive space for now)

And Spice we will be getting at the end of the month. She's a 5 year old Landseer Newfoundland, and a retired breeder. She weighs in at 130lbs, and could stand to lose 5-10lbs. She's able to handle our cold Canadian winter weather, and will be my walking buddy up to about -25C, which is my cut off.


So, there are my pets :D

EDITED to add: And yes, if I had known we were going to get Spice, when we named Hunny, her name would have indeed been Sugar instead! lol

:) I've heard that if your dog is fat then you are not getting enough exercise. Tis True, tis true!! My ShihTzu, Baxter, who is 8 years old is very "fluffy". I haven't been walking him as it has been cold & icy outside :brr: So he & I have been "doing fireplace". Just wait until the snow is gone (at least the ice) though - he will be surprised....off the couch & outside! And maybe even back into dog agility! Look out Baxter! LOL LOL :) :)

Here is a picture of Hunny!


As you can see, she's not exactly built for cold prairie winters, which is actually why/how we got her. As an 8 week old puppy, she was living outside, on a farm, while temperatures got below freezing. We just couldn't leave her there, so here she is.

Oh my gosh! How can anyone leave their dog outside in freezing prarie winters? Or any where they can't be safe & warm. I just don't get it. Hunny is lucky to have you! :high:
