The pets! --
Ginny is our 65lb, 1.5 year old, spayed, female labrador is VERY sweet and cuddly. She's in very good health, trained, and not rambunctious or mis-behaved. She has barked all of 3 times in her 1.5yrs (trust us, we've kept count!). She eats twice a day, a simple meal, 2 dry food meals a day. Is let out to potty on the back patio 3-4 times a day (obviously we clean that up). Goes for an around the block walk once day. No medications, no special care.
Uni (pronounced "oo-knee") is our NOT-65lb, 14 year old, neutered, male siamese/himalayan is an active and feisty guy. Siamese/himalayans are notorious for being a tad on the cross side, this guy sits somewhere in the middle of an ABSOLUTE sweetheart, to keep your distance. Which is okay, cause he's a beauty to look at! :) You have to keep an eye on WHERE he is in the house, cause he will try to slip thru an open door and stroll outside. Uni is litter box trained, which will require cleaning. We replace the box's pee pad and empty/replace the pellet-style "litter", every 2-3 days.
The two of them get along very well together.
