Pets are always part of the family. Here is a gallery of pet photos.
First and foremost on the pet list is Sam. The best springer spaniel there ever has been. Sam lived about two and a half years from 1975 to 1977.
Bojangles was a gift from John Casonova, and was also a good, if a bit quirky, dog. Bo lived from about 1978 to 1982.
Hercules (named after the Elton John song, A Cat Named Hercules) lived from 1978 to about 1981. Hercules was a "Munit" due to the "M" on his forehead. He is the only cat I know who ever flipped over to land on his back instead of his feet, and he also had a habit of "narfing" you with the side of his mouth.
Moses is the longest lived of the bunch on this page. He was born in June or; He was born in June or July of 1982, and was put to sleep in October 2000. He would fetch for the first seven years of his life. The Photo below was taken when in 1983 or 1984, when he was about two.
