    So I wrote a poem in his memory......

    To my Animal Friends
    By Tammie Stephenson

    Some people think I am crazy for living in this "zoo".
    They often wonder what it is, this love I have for you.
    It's something I was born with, it's something I can't help.
    There is something in those eyes of yours that makes my heart just melt.

    Your soft and fluffy feathers, your warm and furry coat, makes me smile when I am with you, be you chicken, feline, dog or yes even goat.
    I love the way you waddle, I love to here you crow.
    I love the way you lick my tears when I have to let one of you go.

    Yes sometimes it can be crazy living here in this so called "zoo".
    But it's worth it all just to feel the love I get from all of you!


    In memory of my little friend Prince Harry...a sweet little kid that left me for greener pastures..

    Quote:Oh, wow, I hope that works out! (I say as I snicker because I just know you'll wind up keeping anything you bottle raise)
