To tell you the truth I was very pleased to see so many of you have dogs! I get so many comments about how you shouldn't have dogs with tortoises. My dogs are house dogs anyways, and the are always at my feet
The key to having dogs and torts is seperate dogs from torts. I do have one dog, the sheltie, who ignores the torts but she is old working stock dog and has seen it all, done it all, and got the t-shirt. The other two I never could trust (essentionly crested are terriors). So I have a roll of 1/4 inch chicken wire.
OOPS! I forgot my Boxies too, 3.2.2 at the moment with 1.5 coming next week.
The Donkey is just an avatar I ran across and liked. Yes indeed long ears rule! I love mini-donks and someday I will have land again so that I can have a whole herd of little spotted mini-donks.
This is Diablo, I was going to buy him and a little jenny but my husband left unexpectedly a few years ago and I had to give up the mini farm and move into a smaller place. Had to sell off my horses, pig, goat, gave away my Bobcat and my Opossum plus some dogs. Had to make myself go down to 2 dogs. It was very tough!
Thanks Robyn, that was a favorite pic of mine for a long time. I used to stop by and see Diablo quite often and he loved hard peppermint candy. I miss the little long eared buggar. Every time Im in the area I go by to see him.
She was captive born to a breeder in AR Dee. My friend bought her as a kitten and I took her when she was 2 years old.
And this is Linus! They both went to the same home in TX together. He would nestle into the back of my hair around my neck while I worked. lol He was just a few ounces when I brought him home, saved from the jaws of several of my friend's dogs that had him cornered in her barn. I did not think he would make it through the night he was so dehydrated.
WOW, thats cool, growing up I had horses, chickens, ducks, hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs, dogs, cats, mice, lizards, birds, and what ever was in the pond behind our house. Now all I have besides my torts are 2.4 boxies, 1.0.2 RES, 2.0 Labs (one black, one chocolate), It is a quiet household right now.
