Our Animals

DOGS- Ok let me explain up front, we have a bunch of dogs.  We have worked with the Local Humane society and county shelter for several years now and with that comes along hard cases were the dogs are just not ready for adption.  

Buddy is a Beagle that is around 17 years old.  The owners just dropped him off at the shelter. So we took him home to live out his life with our pack.  Turns out he has warts which we knew and also that he has cancer, which we found out from the vet.  We have him on prednisone and he does pretty good.

Fidgit is some sort of mix around medium size.  My wife rescued her from another shelter that was going to put her down.  She had a sort of club front paw that got in her way a lot.  So we took her to the vet and had the entire leg amputated.  My wife was concerned that we mutilated her, but when we got her home, I set her off the deck and she did her thing then ran to the back door to go back in.  Never phased her a bit.

Trixie is a chow/terrier mix she is really cute when she gets her bath and styles her hair like a poodle (not the tail!).  She loves riding in the car and is a climber.  If we had a ten foot fence, she would be roaming the hood.  Probably why she got picked up to begin with.

Brittany is a rotwiler/hound mix.  she can have an attitude now and again, but I think most of that is age.

Princess is a yellow lab that someone had for breeding in a puppy mill and dropped her in the country because she was old.  She had just about every kind of worm you can think of including heartworm.  But she is serviving very well.  She used to be skinny, but ….well lets just say she loves to eat!  She is a happy dog…sometimes I call her gladass or happy butt cuz her tail is always going.

Blossum is a full blooded Rotty who was chained in the back yard with a very aggressive male rotty.  He was so aggressive that we had to put him down when he entered the shelter…not his fault.  Blossum had a real bad additude (actually just scared) of most people and especially men.  She had been beaten and growled at most folks.  But she took a liking to my wife and has now adjusted well to be the leader of the pack….at least when I am not there.  She would love to be a lap dog.

Please care for your pets.  Spay and Neuter is a must.  It prevents cancer in later years and they are more obediant to boot.  Spay and neuter would also work well for the previous owners of our dogs in my opinion.

CAT – We recently adopted a barn cat (big boy).  I built a cage/house for him with a heater and all.  He is our mouse killer!

My Poor Car

It’s been a rough couple of weeks for my car.  Last week I had to take my car into the shop because it didn’t have any power.  I took it to the repair shop and they said that mice ate the wires to several of the fuel injectors.  Later on that week the check engine light came on again and the car wasn’t running well again and I discovered that a mouse ate one of the coil wires so it was down a cylinder.  The repair shop found the mouse nest and got rid of it so hopefully that will keep them out of my car engine.  I guess the mice like to have a mobile home.  The repair bill was over $400.  I checked to see if my insurance company would cover this and was quite surprised when they did.  They covered the whole repair bill which was great.  I love animals but these mice have really pissed me off.  My husband bought some Critter Out and sprayed that all over the engine and tires and underneath the car.  I also got an orange and white barn cat from the shelter which I brought home today.  He’s been an outdoor tom cat for many years but he was recently neutered.  He is fairly friendly which is shocking since he’s spent his whole life outside.  I don’t know if he’s going to be much help because he’s curled up in the house that we made for him just sitting there and watching everybody pass by.  I hope he becomes more active tomorrow and comes out of his nice warm house.  I also have another barn cat coming to my house and I was told that he is quite mean and he can’t be handled or he’ll swat you.

About Lynne

Lynne– Has been a Department of Defense Police Officer for almost 20 years.  She has served as a bomb dog handler, protocol officer, and worked in operations as well as dispatch at the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia.  She plans to leave work as soon as we pay off a couple bills and  determine if Jay’s retirement income combined with the additional income from our internet marketing is enough money to live on comfortably. 

The internet marketing endeavor is something that Lynne has been working on for at least a year.  It has been hard to get started and to decide how to go about setting things up and what we wish to market.  Now that we are working with John Thornhill on the details, things have become much clearer and I think we are on our way to success.

Hobbies– Lynne’s hobbies are working with this new internet marketing endeavor and has always been involved with animal rescue and care.  She has been involved with our local humane society to the extent that she has been on the board as Treasurer, Vice President and President.  She began a low cost spay and neuter program for the county in coordination with a regional veterinary health program.  The program has been a wonderful success and greatly benefits the county and the animals alike.  Lynne also worked on our stock car racing team for a number of years with us.

About Jay

Jay – I am a retired US Government worker, specifically for the US Army.  I served 8 years in the army then became a civilian working for the same organization.  I have a total of 37 years working for the Federal Government.  So I feel I’ve worked very hard for my retirement.  I would feel a whole lot better if the economy was in better shape across the world, but I don’t think that will be fixed any time soon so I am moving forward and re-engineering myself.  The new plan is to keep enough irons in the fire to bring in a bit of cash, but leave plenty of time to do fun things.

My Hobbies include riding my Harley Davisdon, playing my guitar, and wood working.  I plan to be more physically active and improve my health.  Sitting behind a desk for all those years has just about killed me.  I used to work on a stock car racing team, but I have realized that I am just to old and out of shape to continue.  But I continue to enjoy watching NASCAR Racing (and just about any other series of auto/motorcycle racing) on the television.  I’ve found that if I go to a race and sit in the stands, I feel out of place by not being in the pits.
