Wow, interesting news about Storm petrels, Dallas. Thanks. What an example of the value of parks.

Thanks for the bird pictures, guys. Especially the feeding birds, Tony. Seeing them together is, as Joan says, soothing and relaxing. You can imagine yourself sitting watching them.

Well it sounds like you are doing a wonderful job Dominic, and I think it's wonderful that you get to live your dream.  It's a great dream! All of your animals are so lucky to have you.~ Melinda

My mom says that I was imitating the dog before I learned to talk.  I have always had many animals and I started to collect more when I was forced into retirement.  The problem is that most of my income goes into taking care of them.  You learn how to feed high quality but to pay lower prices.  You learn how to make and re[pair things yourself.  The dogs do not care if their toys are cartoon characters or $1 plush toys from the dollar store.  I like the cartoon characters. I also feed raw to my dogs and cats.  I have a volunteer who collects veggies that are being discarded from the flea market and brings them once or twice a week.  That helps stretch the feed and goes to the chickens, other poultry and the tortoises.  The rabbits, guinea pigs and prairie dogs have pellets and grain, but every night I collect a wheel barrel full of wild grasses for them.  My goats have pellets and hay, but I collect Brazilian pepper limbs for them every evening.  And of course, I live in an unincorporated area, on an acre and one half.  So my neighbors nor the county have anything to say, and my neighbors like the animals anyway.  This was my dream and I'm living it.  Sure I would like more income so that I wouldn't have to  worry about the bills, but like many people, I'm doing my best.

Dominic how cool you have so many animals!  I am sure they are well-loved and cared for.  It is obvious how much you adore animals of all kinds.  Thanks for showing us the pictures.  I have a 10-year old Black Lab named Molly, a 12-year old long-haired black cat named Dale, an 11-year old tabby named Lula, and a 4-year old long-haired gray (with a dot of white on her chest and tummy) cat named Dora.  I wish we could have more, but we have a small house, and the city ordinance says a mix of 4 cats and/or dogs.  I might sneak in a kitten at some point! ;)
