    Hi,

    I'm Jamie, a writer and teacher and dad currently living in New Hampshire.

    I'm mostly here because of Darwin, the redfoot who lives and works with me in my office.

    I also live with Puck, a rescued dane-brador

    44023851_10157103958507697_4910674557511139328_n.jpg
    and Olive, a pitbull-brador heartworm survivor, who came up from Texas a year ago to live with us

    41807079_10157034914812697_3368528865839284224_n.jpg
    and Lizzie Borden, a mantis shrimp who hunts and kills for the sheer pleasure of the act

    and Beulah, a marine toad (this isn't an actual picture of her, but it captures her essence)

    21752309_10156060654522697_4761561022852781837_n.jpg
    and "Ugly Betta", who isn't, but was sold to me at a steep discount because he was a little beat up ... he live in a aquaponic tank that turns his poop into plants

    I have a bigger (20g) aquaponic tank with minnows in it growing herbs, but I think of them more as employees than family.

    Who lives with you?

    It's quite the "family" you got! Lovely pictures by the way.

    Hi Jamie:

    I live with Misty, the love of my life!

    Misty 01-04-13.jpg Misty 1-20-17 b.jpg Misty 5-9-13.jpg

    There are also six outside cats (I trap strays, have them neutered then release them. They stay here where the food is), many turtles and tortoises. I used to have horses, ducks, chickens, an emu, but they have all grown old and crossed the rainbow bridge.

    Wow! Such lovely animals you all have! I think I'm going to talk my wife into letting me get a mantis shrimp. I have four cats, a great Dane pup, a tortoise, six humans, and a wife. I wouldn't consider our humans animals but when I walk through the house into the kitchen and it looks like my house was raided by savages I'm not left with any other conclusion. I love them all though. IMG_0326.jpg IMG_0207.jpg this is soup. He is my baby. Always needing to cuddle with me. So spoiled he is.

    IMG_0195.jpg this is Foxy and she is soups sister. She is very playful and only wants your attention when she wants something. Typical cat.

    IMG_0352.jpg this is sprinkles and midnight creeping on bowser or great Dane when we brought him home. Sprinkles is a grumpy old lady and midnight likes to cuddle also but is picky about her humans and really only likes my wife and I.

    IMG_0345.jpg IMG_0347.jpg this is bowser when we got him. I don't have a recent pic because he won't let me take one of him. He is doubled in size and is a mommas baby. He loves my wife.

    IMG_0447.jpg here are two wild animals that like to sneak in my house and sleep in browsers old crate. I'm not die what species of animal they are but they like to eat a lot.

    Well let's see...
    This is Sherlock, a shelter adoptee who had a broken jaw.

    This is Blanca, given to us by a friend, thinks she runs the house. She milked the injured paw for all she could get out of it.

    And Sammy, who actually runs the house...a stray who walked out of the desert and claimed us as his own. Careful...he bites!

    And Kisses, rescued from awful living conditions.
    20130702_112851.jpeg

    Pyro and Sparky, now 15 years old. They are both female Senegal parrots. Pyro decided to start laying eggs at the age of 13!

    Of course, Chug

    And last, currently 3 aquariums.

    Oops, last one upside down. There are 2 African Dwarf frogs in the pic.
    Oh, and I also have a sweet husband!

    I'll bet it's hard to keep the water inside that frog aquarium!
