The Rescues

A friend of mine has a sticker on her car that says,"Who Rescued Who?" Couldn't be a more perfect description of our sweet pets. I know a lot of my readers enjoy my posts about these two so I decided to share their bios!

Sunny Day Brown

We adopted Sunny from the local animal shelter. She is a Cocker Spaniel/Hunting Dog mix. We went there looking for a kitten and came back with this loyal, loving dog. I was the first to see her, she looked at me with her big brown eyes and I knew she had to be mine.

If she were in a dog show she would be in the Sport category. There is nothing sporty about this lazy girl. Don't get me wrong, she can be athletic when asked to go on walks (at which point she wags her tail like a helicopter and let's out a whimper of excitement) but most of her time is spent laying around the house. 
She loves to be outside, but only if her people are with her.  
She lives the good life. 

Milo Kitty Cat Brown

The story of Milo's rescue is a funny story. We were in our first apartment and R was out with the missionaries. I was in the shower when R comes in with two kittens and puts them on the bathroom floor. They were crying big meows with big blue eyes.

That night, I was told he found them wrestling in the road and almost hit them. We introduced them to Sunny and the orange Tabby looked her dead in the eye, slapped her around, and started to purr. His black sister with the white paws hissed and clawed her way up my shirt. We called my aunt and who was happy to adopt and named her Molly.

Two years later we have a full grown cat named Milo, who I should've named Garfield because of his laziness and attitude. I rarely get a picture of him up moving around. Most of the time he is on his back sleeping.

These two sweet pets have been in our family now for a little over two years. They have been the source of many laughs. They have been by our sides through tears and excitement, we have watched them grow and become the best companions.

I had four different four-legged brothers growing up. Pets are such a joy!
