Big Meadow in the Sky Page

Dedicated to all my animal companions who shared their lives with me.

  I learned something from each of you and I want to thank you for allowing me to tell your stories.

(Where I do not have actual pictures, I found some on the internet that are very close just to honor the memories. I need to dig out some old photos and digitize them to get them on here.)

    The most was 11 (5 Guinea pigs, 5 cats, 1 dog) at one time with 2 adults and 3 kids. Now we have only 5 (2 dogs, 3 cats). But wait a week and that will change. Never know who finds their way to the zoo. <3

    This is a sweet memory page. I’m glad I found your DogDaz site. I remember Nikki, Squash, Cuddles, Zachary, Muffin, Alice and Gertrude with much affection. I marvel at how you managed the care for so many, making time to give each love and attention. Plus the piggies too. I miss my dogs, Ginger and Augie, not to mention, Louie, my 5 year old sky blue and white parakeet, who flew away during last year’s earthquake. Your pretty blonde dog looks a lot like my Augie, only smaller. I look forward to reading more updates on your zoo! :)

      So glad you found us. Yes, you were there for many of the zoo, new and old, and especially for Peanut through all these years. I did not know that your bird flew the coop. That is so sad. I remember Ginger and Augie. Sofie is definitely smaller but just as feisty.
