Our ‘Rescued’ Family Members!

I came across these photo’s in my stash {actually, hidden}. We have rescued many a furry, feathered friend over the past 40 some odd years. From cats, dogs, horses, cattle, a few bison, and scores of birds, llamas, alpacas, goats. The list has been endless. Many animals had been ‘dumped’ out by passing vehicles at an astonishing rate of speed, which in many cases, the animals did not fair well.

Here is Chloe. We found her in a ditch by our house. At first, I was not sure what we had found. She was drenched in mud and looked like a kit fox. From what we had gathered through the first year; She came from one of our neighbor’s, who at the time was raising apple headed Chihuahua’s. Chloe was not of their standards, being quite a bit ‘frizzled’ haired. Chloe is the ‘apple’ of our hearts!


We also have a few Llama’s that we ‘inherited’ when our friend died. His kids were going to have them euthanized. We found out interesting things about Llama’s our first year. They do not like ‘trespassers’ in their pastures. We have found many a critter stomped to a pulp {beyond reconginition}. A few badgers mainly.

Llamas are not clipped, sheared, they are ‘shorn’. We have Peruvian men who come once a year to ‘shorn’ them.


Peacocks who eat cat food! They will literally yank a cat away from the food.

And Quiddy! One less Yorkie breeder in Oregon. He came from a ‘breeder’ who thought an old bathtub was a great idea to ‘backyard’ breed Yorkies. I am proud to announce, she will never be in business again.
