Help! We’re over run!

The beginning

Following in the foot steps of several members of my family ( somehow I keep doing that)!, I’ve decided to write a bit to express myself, and maybe to give you all a glimpse of my day to day life. As some of you know I have always loved animals and my wish has always been to be surrounded by them all the time. Well that came true. These days I’m a personal slave to 2 ungrateful cats, Sencha and Alaska, and 2 slightly more grateful dogs, Roxy and Tulip. To clarify, personal slave means I clean them, feed them, pick up their crap and act as their bed or pillow if need be. ( there is one sitting on me as I write). In some strange way, though, I love it. We really are over run! We live in a 1 bedroom apartment with 4 pets! Yup, we’re crazy. Our day to day life usually entails cleaning up some indescribable mess off the floor( trust me you don’t want to know what it was), cleaning the furballs out of the corners, keeping the dogs out of the cats bowls and out of eachother’s bowls (*(*&*^&*^!!!), about 2 hours of dog walking minimum…oh and of course lots of talk about poo….yes, dog poo.   Welcome 🙂



  1. Hat’s off to you. Not many of us could put up with what you do everyday. You would have done really well on Noah’s Ark. 🙂
    Great start!

  3. Hi Miranda! The kids enjoyed the photos of your dog friends. I didn’t realize you had a one bedroom! It almost sounds like more work than kids. At least kids wear diapers:)
    Keep up the good work!

  4. Miranda, I am interested in how things progress for you. I know this has been a life long dream. I was wondering if you would be open to having questions come into you for people who are having issues with their pet. My brother John got a rescue dog and he was dealing with a couple issues that I didn’t have an answer for. Lucy

  5. Lucy- Sure, I love hearing about people’s dogs, and trying to solve any issues they may have. Rescue dogs can be quite challenging, as you know… It can take a lot to undo what someone can do to a dogs temperament in a short period of time. Feel free to give him my email.

    Haidi- Thanks!

    Josh- You’d probably need therapy and medication! Mike is a saint!

    Aimee- Yeah i think I would have fit right in! lol

  6. Hi Mira! Great pic of you two and the dogs. I’d frame it, if I had one…hint…hint…hint.
    Keep up the good work!
