Tina is a animal lover too! by Skeeter
While in Clarksville this past weekend, (just before the unveiling of the now famous thong) the Saint and I met up with Tina from the “In the Garden” Blog. She was kind enough to invite us to her home so we could check out her garden, dogs and Mr. Fix-its car collection. We told her not to be upset with us if we gave her animals more attention then the yard!
It was hard not to give them big babies attention as they were all so friendly! BJ the Golden mix and Orkin (as in Pest control) the resident rodent killing cat were the first to adorn our rubbing hands when they met us at the car. Then we met the fertilizer providing bunny, (sorry Tina but I cannot remember that name) then two more doggies greeted us upon entering the house. Link the little sausage wiener mix doggie was the Saints favorite (don’t tell BJ) and then CC the other possible Golden mix. I believe the Saint would have taken Link home with us if he could have gotten away with it!
And let’s not forget the bird that was flying from the mantle and throughout the living room. I guess the birdie did not like us as it flew to a part of the house that is off-limits! And last but not least is the bathtub full of gold fish! Yes, a bathtub! Tina is big into recycling and her backyard pond is indeed an old bathtub! The tub is one of many whimsical items to be found throughout Tina’s yard.
The Saint and I enjoyed the garden tour and checking out the old cars that will one day shine with restoration when Mr. Fix-it retires and has time for his hobby. But I must admit we enjoyed visiting with all the critters as much as talking plants and flowers! The Saints arm is still a bit sore from throwing the ball for BJ.
In the pictures you will see the three amigos BJ, CC and Link all being well behaved while getting a treat from Tina. I was totally surprised as how well behaved they were when mommy demanded obedience. The other picture is of Orkin the cat. Yellow cats hold a special place in our hearts as our perfect Skeeter was a yellow boy.
If any of you enjoy gardening, check out Tina’s Blog. I find it most interesting and full of knowledge. Tina considers herself a gardener but she is also a Pet People!
Thank you for a lovely afternoon Tina!
