We started with a hamster, then got a Min Pin Rat Terrier named Gracie, then after we moved to our new house we found a white rabbit that was abandoned or lost on our country road, so we took him in and named him Alto..after that we got another puppy who is a sheltie rat terrier named Abner.. I took in my sisters cat, Diamond, because she was moving and couldnt take her.. and now we have 10 backyard chicks! Enjoy the pictures ****I WOULD LOOOOVE TO SEE OTHER PEOPLE'S PETS!
