Precious Pets.

This week the Lens-artists challenge is from Tina at Travels and Trifles. The challenge: Precious Pets.

CATS

We do not have a cat but we have had our daughter’s cat as a guest. Here is a photo of our daughter and her cat Sir Winston. dressed for a special occasion. He was a rescue who started life abandoned in a warehouse. But he would not hesitate to tell you he is descended from the regal cats of Ancient Egypt. Cats were worshipped as Gods then. Sir Winston thinks they still should be.

Sir Winston and his human .

DOGS

We do not have a dog at the moment but on September 14 we will be welcoming a new puppy into our home. She will be our fourth mini-Schnauzer. We had to say goodbye to our much loved Tia last spring when she became ill and surgery was difficult and without a guarantee of success. She joined our family when she was 16 months old and left us at age 14.

When Tia first arrived we also had Abby. Abby loved nothing more that a game with a ball and I think she has gone on to another life as a soccer player.

There were some rare occasions when Abby , Tia and Sir Winston (who is not even a permanent resident!) would all relax together. But you can see who has claimed the best and biggest spot!

HORSES

Obviously since the name of this blog is Horse Addict horses are the passion of my life. I have to say that I view the horses in my life as co-workers more than pets. We are on a journey together with our training and competition and just hanging out together. My friend Biasini also “speaks” on my blog and he has opinions on almost everything. He is the most talented horse I have ever had.He is not the easiest ride but I have learned a great deal from him and that is still on going. Next to my husband and children Biasini is one of the “loves of my life”.

I encourage you to take a look at Tina’s Precious Pets post and in the comments you will find links to other responses to this challenge. There are some wonderful pets to be found in these posts.

    Lovely to see all your pets – even if I can agree that maybe horses are not! How fun with a new pup, but the first year can be a bit “trying”, but therre is a reward to be had for several years on. Love Sir Winston for a name, and love that they all could relax together. Biasini is such a beauty, and working together means you get really close. My husband says he is only number three in our house…

    Lovely photos. Wondering why your daughter’s cat is named Sir Winston? Please tell me she lives in Churchill. ๐Ÿ™‚

      No she lives now in Belleville Ontario about two hours from us. She just wanted a name that started with W. And in fact I chose Winston and yes I was inspired by the wit and wisdom of Churchill. The cats personality soon made it clear it was a good choice and the Sir was added.๐Ÿ˜€

      Biasini is really quite a character. And the new puppy! It has been a long time since we had a puppy as we got Tia as an adult dog. We may have a few sleepless nights. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
