My favorite prayer: God, help me to be the kind of person that my dog thinks I already am!
When I was updating this page after Lexus died, I realized that every pet that we had when I originally posted it has passed on. How very short is the time we have to share with them! The newest animals in our lives are Rigley (a beagle⁄terrier mix), Roxie (a cocker⁄shepherd mix) and Tabby (a cat, of course).
Pictures are below (former pets only, for now — mouseover for captions), and also on their individual pages. If you just can't get enough of these darlings, there are more pictures scattered throughout Marita's website.
- Rigley (aka Mr. Rigley, Riggs)
- Roxie (aka Rox-a-million, Rox Star, Little One)
- Tabby (aka Tabs)
- Lexus (aka Lexie, Lex, Lexi-Pro, Rug-Rat) (R.I.P.)
- Billi J (aka Billi, Miss Billi, Little One) (R.I.P.)
- Tippi (aka Tip, Tip-Tip, Tipper) (R.I.P.)
