These are a few of the many creatures that have come into my life one time or another. Many of these encounters were very short and just as many were long lived and precious. They have all been important to me. My dearly beloved Yeti who was my companion for 17 years. The many cats I fostered and the dogs who shared an early part of my life. The many budgies that my parents owned. Even the little orange butterfly that flitted past as if to tell me that my beloved Annie, who was also orange, had made it safely across the veil. I have loved them all, in many different ways. There are quite a few whose names and faces are etched into my heart and there are some that I believe are my soulmates.

There are many photographs which I will share over time and perhaps I will have a “Picture of the week” and tell you a little bit about the story behind the image.
