Clyde, the big black lab, is 13 years old now. He was part of a "surprise" litter, and his father and mother live with horses. Clyde likes to play ball, and looks at the world as a giant buffet. He can smell food from miles away. He's still in great shape for a 13-year old!
Willie the cat is almost twelve, and we got her from a rescue organization in the Valley. She was found with her brothers and sisters in a lumberyard. Among her likes: Opening doors, cuddling, lying in the sun, foreign films, and romance novels.
Berry - short for Blueberry, was rescued from the local animal shelter. Many people ask us what kind of dog she is. We think she is some type of pointer mix, but some people have told us they think she is a Catahoula Leopard dog, the only known domesticated dog native to North America. We aren't sure- and she isn't telling us. She likes to chase squirrels, play frisbee, and she is an obsessive retreiver. She can retrieve balls and frisbees and stuffed ducks for hours. She is very smart, and good with numbers... she has even done our taxes for the past few years.
One day, while showing a foreclosure house to clients, we heard a strange sound in the back yard. When we went outside, there was a scraggly Persian cat in a tree, looking emaciated and hungry. Through some investigation, we found out she had been left behind by the previous owners, and she hadn't eaten much for a couple of weeks. We took her home, and while she was very shy at first, she quickly became a part of the family. She is now a healthy, happy cat that loves to chase strings and goes crazy when there is catnip nearby.
