A Family Portrait

  • A Family Portrait
left to right is "L.B." our 7 year old spayed German Shepherd who was a
rescue case. "Pasha" our 8 year old spayed female Himalayan cat that
was rescued from an abusive owner. Weighing in at just 10 pounds she
makes it clear every day that "You are not the boss of me." Hiding in
the background is "Ashe", our 17 year old tabby cat who we rescued on
our honeymoon, seconds before a gravel truck nearly ran over this
abandoned kitten. Then there's "Sionniach" (Gaelic for 'fox'), this
brave little guy has been with us for 9 years. Hit by a car, he
survived for over a week lying in a culvert eating grass and drinking
ditch water. He gets around fine on three legs. Next to him is "Chewie"
a one year old neutered male crossbred husky. During a trip to Vietnam
chasing wildlife smugglers, I visited a meat market in Hanoi, and along
with a couple of his buddies, they all applied for Canadian
citizenship. And then finally, there's "Taiga" our 8 year old neutered
male Siberian Husky. Hunters were taking potshots at this 'wolf.' Their
marksmanship was directly related to their alcohol intake, so instead
of being mounted in somebody's 'dead room' he lives with us. They are
loved unconditionally by our two wonderful children, Pierce and Elan,
and by my wife, Lise, who works to help people in need.
