The Swartz Zoo

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.
