It’s the day to celebrate those who are no longer with us.
We’ll start with Casper, a dog of unknown origin and ancestry who was found as a stray near Highway 280 just south of San Francisco
Casper almost made it to 18. This hangs in the bedroom but was taken down for this picture because of the glare from outside. They are from all the anipals since Casper. Notice the fur and feathers taped on the picture. Hey wait! There’s fur from Kyla and Kenzie and a couple of feathers from Boomerang. There’s a blue feather of mine-I’m the only one who hasn’t crossed the bridge yet. Is this an omen? SQUAAAAAWK!
We also have something that hangs in the kitchen (also temporarily removed because of glare). It hangs in the Kitchen, just like Kyla.
From the top left and going clockwise:
Kenzie (2003-2012). Kyla’s little buddy and a handful. Gone too soon because of liver cancer.
That’s MEEEE! hatched 2008.
The lovely Miss Kaci born 2012, Unknown ancestry and was rescued from a kill shelter in time.
Boomerang the cockatiel. In April of 2003, Kyla started barking big time at the glass door to the back yard. The peep went to see what is was all about and this cockatiel flew onto his shoulder. That startled the peep and the bird flew off and returned to the shoulder. That’s how the bird got his name besides his species is native to Australia. The peeps tried to find his home but had no success. Kyla loved Boomer and when Boomer crossed in 2008, Kyla was despondent. Kyla was a pet who had a pet. Kyla perked up when the peeps got me to replace Boomer.
Kyla, of course. 2002-2014. She’s the only one to know all five of the others. We couldn’t stop melanoma from taking her away. She is missed and was the queen of the house. She was Stuart’s girl friend and Stu and she are probably laughing at the crazy things that peeps do when they look at us from the bridge.
Kali, probably born in 2002. Like Kaci, unknown ancestry and was rescued from a kill shelter in time.
All still loved and missed. I have nothing funny to say.
