The Past Few Months in Animal Pictures

So, those of you who follow me on Facebook have seen many of these pictures before. The past few months have been filled with our animals and our business. So, here is a little slice of our life at the Fort. Enjoy!

In January we adopted this little guy and named him Dexter. He is the sweetest dog and is in love with Aaron!  He is also growing like a weed! He just passed his 1st birthday in November and he hasn’t stopped growing!.

Then in July we brought home these adorable snuggle bunnies! I had no idea how much fun rabbits are and these kids have us completely wrapped around their fingers!



Of course, they are now 8 months old, and  a bit larger. I jokingly refer to them as the “kitchen staff” because they live in our kitchen.

The animal count was now at 13….. But who can stop there, right!

20140214_080224 A good friend of ours is moving to India and asked if we would take his female bunny for him. We introduced her to the boys, and after a few weeks the three of them are inseparable.


This winter has been rather cold for us and we had a few days with quite a bit of snow. Bob and Aspen had a very good time playing in the white powder.


Bob being Bob!


My sweet Aspen is still showing us her personality day by day. She was so badly abused in her previous homes that she has flash backs and I have to remind her that she’s not going to be beaten by me. She has made amazing progress in the year we have had her and I love my girl!


The girls have not been fans of this cold winter. They still believe that I control the weather and protest when it freezes, event though they have an outdoor heating pad in their coop on the harsher days.

Gico is still Gico! He’s a crotchety parrot who loves me and Aaron and pretty much hates the rest of the world. He loves to make sure the dogs are in check, especially Dexter.


Max and Leila are getting older and older. Max is really starting to slow down and his arthritis worsens with each passing year. But he still has some spunk and likes to run around and play.


Last, but certainly not least, is our Chloe cat! It’s hard to believe we have had her for nearly two years. She’s a very happy indoor/ outdoor girl and loves living in the country.20131114_161726

Our animals are our joy and they keep us sooo very and happily busy! God Bless!

Love Lauren

P.S. Stay tuned for a rather large post about an exciting upcoming trip!

Aw, I love this. This would be my ideal life. Sewing and lots of animals. I just lost my sweet monster dog (great dane, mastiff, black lab mix) Amos and I miss him every day. It's all I can do not to bring dogs that need adopting home every day, but I work 10 hour days and it wouldn't be fair to them. Maybe when I retire.

Tracey, I'm soooo sorry for you loss! I am dreading the day we have to let our Max go. It's so hard to loose a pet. Yes, we are fortunate that we can bring our dogs to work. Our dental office has a huge back yard and our patients love seeing them!
