While she looks pretty much like a real Scottie, Kelly is actually half Scottie and half Schnauzer.
She's a wonderful dog, loves people, loves chasing tennis balls and playing catch. And she's really smart.
Only thing she really hates is other dogs. She's got a bit of OCD and fixates on flashlights, laser pointers,
camera flashes. She's not too fond birthday cakes -- but we're not sure if it's the candles or the
singing that bothers her. And she really doesn't like it when we have a fire in the fireplace.
Jones was a rescue cat and spent his first week hiding in our bathroom. Eventually he got used to us
and now happily wanders the house, but his favorite spot is anywhere there is sunshine. He's still a
bit paranoid and little concerned with anything new, but he's a wonderful cat.
As a kitten, Electra adopted us years ago. She arrived one morning at the
backdoor, cold and hungry. Despite the attentions of the two
dogs, she came right in and headed for Comet's food bowl. She
batted Comet's nose just once, the hound backed off and let
Electra eat to her heart's content.
Comet is gone now, but she was our second Basset Hound (the first being Tiger). She was the sweetest dogs
we've ever had. She died the same day as Princess Diana.
Also gone now; Margaret, our English Bulldog, appeared in commercials for Coors,
ATT Alaska, Xerox, Motorola, and the Oregon Lottery.
Gone now, but in her prime, Megan, a Cornish Rex, was one strange cat. Lacking the two outer layers of fur, Megan
was always cold and would seek heat anywhere she could find it. When Diane first got her, Diane lived in an apartment
with an old stove that had a constantly burning pilot flame under the grill -- and that's where Megan wanted to sleep.
