Welcome New Pet People, New Pets!
Yesterday I told you all about Brett, who sent me a nice e-mail about the Pet People blog. I told him he HAD to sign up and join in, which he did yesterday. I guess we birds of a pet feather fly together and find each other.
Here are pictures of his babies. Brett told us the story of how they got their cat, Pearl, which is a tear-jerker. Read yesterday's blog for that story if you missed it! Brett said in his e-mail: My name is Brett, and I recently discovered your pet people page. I think it's wonderful. It is so great to read about other people who live their daily existence in a haze of fur and kibble. My partner and I have three
beautiful babies, 2 dogs and one cat. Lucy is a lab "mutt" who turned 3 in
December, Charlie is my lab/German shepherd who is 2, and Pearl is my
wonderful little white puffy cat who will be one on Friday. I just wanted to
drop a line and tell you a big THANKS. I keep reading about the other
readers who send pics, so I'll send you some of my babies. The one labeled "buddies" is my favorite. Again, thank you so much for your wonderful column."
When I asked him to sign up and join us, he responded with the comments below. I could tell right off he had a great sense of humor and would fit right it! I believe it was Skeeter who said yesterday (or maybe it was Shannon) that they were afraid maybe we scared newbies off with our bawdy talk! Glad we didn't scare Brett off, or maybe he just hasn't been reading long enough!
"Thank you for your kind invite and for your compliments on the babies. I'll
have to tell them tonight that they are going to be internet movie stars.
Well,... no, better not do that. Pearl will demand top billing, and Lucy
will want more treats. Two divas in one house hold can be challenging. Poor
So, we have two Lucy dogs now--Brett's and Stacey's! And I'm sure many of you can identify with having diva pets in the household!
Again, give Brett a warm welcome and don't go scaring him off!
Everybody, don't forget to e-mail Stacy if you want to go to the Roxy portion of our June 2 get-together. Humane Society fundraiser at Ice House any time after 12:30, dinner at the Blackhorse at 6, then on to "The Full Monty" at 8! And for those of you who can't make it, we hope to have a party here at my house sometime around July 4!
