Over the past 50 years, our critters have truly been like rainbows in our lives.  They become a family member and you miss them as such when you lose them.  Over these many years of marriage, we have had many, many critters, and we want to honor all of them with a picture of each one below.  We hope our families, and especially the Grandchildren, enjoy all of them, as well as the rest of the viewing audience.

To make it more interesting, we are including our sons' family pets on this page too.  And, in so doing, they will have a CD with all of them recorded on it for their history.
