I've finally decided that I am a writer - all the other things I do just pay the bills. Someone eloquent once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Well, let's just see about that.

RIP Aggie

RIP Aggie
Aggie was my fifteen-year-old cairn terrier - or maybe I should say I was her 55-year-old person! She was my faithful companion, spoiled rotten and I am still trying to figure out what to do without her.

This is Peter the gingersnap tabby! He's seven years old and has just been promoted to Peter the Very, Very Good. He is working his way up to Peter the Great...

Bee is Peter's buddy. He's eight years old and has made himself right at home. I guess cats really do come in pairs or sets of three!

And Jasper makes three!

Jasper is our new guy - the Cat From Another Place. He's four years old and we think he likes it here - so far, so good!

Happy birthday, Aggie!

Yep - it's official - Aggie is twelve years old!  I can't believe it - but my sweet cairn is twelve years young today.  She actually came to live with us on December 5, 1998 - but she was just a baby.  See that crazed puppy look?
It was almost Christmas, so she got decorated, too.
Aggie ventures out into the big world - but always on her leash - since cairns are notorious chasers of squirrels and other wildlife.
She posed for a first birthday photograph.
But soon had enough...
Aggie loved to go swimming in my mom's pool.
Tim got Aggie her own raft and boogie board.
She loves her designer collar collection - especially the purple paw print number.  Soon it will be time to put on the Halloween collar!
Aggie met a new friend yesterday - an adorable pug named Chewie.
She got a new toy for her birthday today, but the jury is still out.  I gave it to her and she promptly took it to the living room to hide it from her brother, Peter.  Like a cat would want a chew toy.  She came back and sat next to me - must be waiting for her birthday chicken treat.  Happy birthday, girly!


  1. Happy Birthday Ms. Aggie! You don't look a day over ten. Go crazy with the chicken treats..it's your Birthday!
