The place for pets, and their owners

The West Coast family


So begins the photo saga of my trip to the left coast, where the opportunities for cute pet moments were as plentiful as I wish the sun had been. Without further ado…

Here’s PorkchopPorkchop is the senior member of the group, at about 15 years old. She rules the roost. This bed she is on was purchased specifically for Prince. Sorry Prince.

Here is fluffy Tigger.Last trip out Tigger was my best buddy. For some reason this year she kind of abandoned me, but Porkchop, bless her, took Tigger’s place and slept by my feet every night. This picture doesn’t do her justice, but despite her fluff-ballness, Tigger is the teeniest little thing.

And speaking of teeny, the youngest and smallest of the bunch, Ribeye/SpamSpam is a gorgeous mottled-color of greys and light browns, with the most adorable little dark gray nose. Here she is scamming time on the Prince/Porkchop bed.

And of course, last but not least, the Princester….I really regret I didn’t get more and better pictures of Prince, but lots of times when I tried, the galoot kept coming right up to the camera, so all I had were lost of shots of his nose.

More later…
