Our little Milo sadly passed away in October, 2013. We miss him terribly. He was so much fun. He used to chase a big basketball around the yard and eventually knock it into the pool. He would then bark at it until we told him to jump in and get it. He would swim around the pool pushing the ball for several laps until he tired of that. Then he would get out and bark again.
He loved to go to R-Ranch in the Sequoias with us. He was a totally different dog there. He calmed down and loved to go on hikes. I think he appreciated the quiet and the fresh air.
This is Hermoine. She is such a fun kitty. She likes to chase us when we run across the room. She loves to play with our hands and sit on our laps after dinner. I have to be very careful not to leave a stray strand of yarn around because she will eat it. She likes mohair. I think she thinks it needs grooming.
