    My little zoo consists of two dogs and two cats, all of which are rescues. Allie is our Irish Setter and known as our rowdy redhead. Bailey is our roadside rescue. In November of 2013 I found him abandoned along side a country back road. He was only four months old. To this day he does NOT like riding in cars. My two kitties we know nothing about but they are always a huge help when I am quilting. Izzy is the tortie and Poof is the gray kitty. They both have quirks.

    We always have animals-now we have 17 Alpacas, 5 goat, a fainting one, a Nigerian, 2 dwarfs, and a mix, 9 white face Herefords (They are pasture bred) and have had Herfords for years, we have 20 hens, Sulkys, bantams, and others, 1 lope eared rabbit, and huge black ferrel cat. Don't know if this qualifies as your idea of a zoo....... We have wild animals....we spotted a mink this morning and that Is not healthy for the chickens. we enjoy them every day. The Avatar has an adult Mama looking at Jack the little intruder as if to tell him "you aren't mine."

    Here's my Charlie Brown, a terrier mix. He's about 9.5 now but still playful in the snow which thankfully isn't often here in Texas. I got him at the shelter when he was about 5 months old. I don't have any other pets as he won't let me have one. He didn't even like it when my sister brought her dog for a visit as both dogs are "only child." My sister lost her papapoo to the neighbor's pit bull.

    I think all your fur-babies are so cute and it warms my heart to see how many are rescued babies, how people can ill treat such treasures is beyond me.

    Kellypete, I am in love with Pouf, what an attitude

    Pouf's attitude seems to be remarkable similar to my Lilly Belle's. She knows she is the mistress of all she surveys and a troublemaker to boot. She too is a rescue. She is also quite young in these pics.

    Oh I love your zoos! So many rescued babys. So many animal lovers on here.

    I love dogs, I could never live without them. My first dog was a West Highland White Terrier - Lisa. I got her when I was 13 years old and I had to say good bye to her two years ago, she was almost 17 years old. When Lisa was 7 years old I adopted Angelina - also a WHWT. Another 7 years later I fell in love with labs and Lilly entered my life. She was 8 weeks old and I've got her from a breeder. I picked her out of the litter when she was 5 weeks old. She is always on my side and has the typical lab goofy character. So I ended up with three dogs. After Lisa passed away I didn't want to have another third dog but ... two months later I saw a sweet little puppy on a Romanian rescue page and fell in love.
    Mona arrived here three weeks later. She is very special. Angelina didn't like to live in a pack anymore, she lives now with my parents as a single dog and rules the couch. She lives the bes life ever. Lilly and Mona are my angels. They are my best friends and my babys. I'm pregnant at the moment and I can't wait to introduce the human puppy to my pack. I will upload photos tomorrow.

    We had a huge zoo over the years of 53 marriage. We lost our last horse of 27, 3 years ago. When she went down in the pasture and my husband called for the vet to come, I stood in the rain with her (she was lying on the ground) and held the umbrella over her face because I didn't want it to rain in her huge, beautiful eyes. It took the vet 45 minutes to get there. It was so hard but I stroked her face and talked to her because she wanted to get up and couldn't. I cried for days. We lost our 13 year old Jack Russell Terrier (rescued), Patches, 7 months ago. She was in renal failure and we didn't want her to suffer any longer. I can't seem to bring myself to have another fur baby just yet. I have loved reading all your stories and seeing your pictures of your beautiful "zoos". Thank you so much for sharing...
