The Pets


Halo is a 12 year old miniature long-haired Dachshund. She's been in my life since the day she was born. Her favorite activities include hiking/trail walks (she gets to run off leash and she loves it!) and playing with her ball (either basketball or soccer ball - she is addicted). She also loves food and giving kisses.


Ueda is a 9 year old Shiba Inu. I bought him shortly after I gave up riding to go to college. His favorite activities include playing fetch, hiking/trail walks, and hunting. He is by far the best hunting dog I have ever met - it is almost as if he can sense his prey before he sees/hears it. He is also addicted to food and terrified of lightning/loud noises. Aside from being stubborn and dog aggressive, Ueda is 100% loyal to me and a complete snuggle-bug.


Cooper is a retired barn cat that I rescued in 2012. He was extremely malnourished and had a severely infected/inflamed leg that would have led to certain death. We estimate him to be around 8 years of age at this time. His favorite activities include meowing for attention (loudest cat I have ever met), sitting on you when you least suspect it, and cuddles. He's a picky eater/drinker but loves treats and catnip.
