Why I’ve decided it’s nice to have a sister — 11 Comments

  1. this is a wonderful article about having more than one pet. I have two indoor cats we call the fancy boys. They were both rescued from a very caring place in Orem Utah after we lost our 14 year old cat. First we got one male rag doll cat and after a month we went a rescued another rag doll who had three legs due to an accident. It doesn’t stop him from jumping as high as the other cat or running and playing. You have to take a second look to know he is missing a front paw and leg. We call him Tres. The other one Griffin was so sad and lonely when we got him first and was kind of mean. He had issues from mistreatment. He was found at the shelter we got him from; left in a box on their steps with injury’s to his leg. Both had surgery . People at the shelter had donations pour in to help these dog and cats there with medical procedures. We paid a modest donation to adopt them which included spay, shots, and their surgery. When we brought Tress home Griffin (Griffie for short) came out of his shell and is such a great cat. On my birthday this year in Mar. my 14 year old Aussie dog died . I had her since she was a pup. We had gotten a new Aussi pup just a week before Maggie had to be put down. We had Olly our four month old female Aussie for a month when we thought it would be great to have a companion dog for her. I went online and found a mini aussie male who was up for adoption in Cedar city and a shelter. We went the day after memorial day and met Reggie our new boy, He rode home with us and right before we got home he threw up. Good thing I had the water proof cargo dog covers in the back seat. Olly and Reggie met and it was love at first sight. Non stop play high energy carrying on until nap time. Reggie had been turned in to the shelter for a week. He is so sweet. Both dogs like being outdoros most of the time but are house broke and enjoy coming inside to. Our grand daughter loves them as much as they love her. The cats are not to happy about them when they are inside. We had problems with Reggie chasing the goat and chickens on our farm but he soon learned to stop. He walks on a leash like a dream dog. Olly has to be harnessed still in the learning stage. She is ten months now; and Reggie is a year and have old. Two are better than one.

  2. What a great post! You two are so adorable. I loved seeing the pictures of the two of you playing and cuddling. I also believe having two dogs is good for them. Unfortunately, I cannot convince Mr. Bella, nor Ms. Bella herself, of such. Great pictures. :)

  3. Hey Roxy, Hey Torrey, Jet here. Hi Miss Mary.

    Wow, we never knew your stories before. Wowee wow wow… Mom kind of did the same thing with Koko. She never intended to have a 2nd K9, however, there I was… I acted a lot like Torrey until Little Miss Happy Paws arrived in December, after Koko crossed the Rainbow Bridge in October. It’s hard not to enjoy JJ even though she has more energy than that pink rabbit!

    I agree Roxy, Sisters are fun!

  4. Awwww, this is a great and adorable post! It’s been a long time since we have only had 1 pet in our family, given the right circumstances, I’m not sure if we will ever not have more than 2!

  5. Dear Rozy, I loved reading about how Torrey came to live without you (though it was without your permission and a bit cheeky). Do you wonder how she got so much bigger than you? I think it’s very suspicious. Maybe she’s getting more food! Better check ;) But I guess it’s worth it even if she does because it’s so nice to have a good friend and company in the house X

  6. Hi Y’all!

    Just hoppin’ by to say “hi”.

    Great plea Roxy. Hope my Human doesn’t read it, ’cause I came from a multi dog home and don’t want to share again. I think I’m safe though ’cause there is only room for my crate in the car when we travel. I’m a BIG fella.

    Y’all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  7. Roxy I’m glad you have Torrey! I love the pictures of you two. You’re both so cute! We have two dogs at home too: Linus who rescued from the animal shelter and Stetson our career changed guide dog. They are good companions and I’m glad they have each other when we’re not around.

    Happy Monday!
