This Halloween marked our one year anniversary of adopting Stinker into our family. Now named Swearengen (for his sass and take-nothing-from-nobody attitude), he has settled in amazingly, and become a much loved addition to our little family. He always welcomes us home from work with a sweet meow, and never says no to getting his chin rubbed. He also makes it very clear how much he hates anybody singing or dancing while he is in the room by sending us a glare, and a swat if we don't take the hint. He's quite the character, and we love him very much. "


"Hunter is an older dog who joined us in the Fall of 2015.  He is such a loving, gentle soul - perfect with our 3 kids.  He is our first family dog and we feel lucky to have him!"
