My name is Linda and I live in Phoenix, Az with my husband, 4 rescued dogs – Jake, Tobi and Charlie and Sam, and a cat named Sam that found me when he was almost dead 12 yrs ago. I also have 9 parrots – 4 of which are rescues or weren’t wanted anymore. I love these guys with all my heart and more than life. In the last 25 years, I have also had 5 horses that I miss dearly. Along with other dogs, cat, hamsters and a turtle.
When I’m not doing something with my guys, I have my face in a book. I also am an avid very amateur photographer – mostly critters and landscapes. I am in the middle of writing a short story and have written 2 books about Charlie.
Jake was adopted September 2006 from Friends 4 Life in Gilbert, Az. He was about 3 years old and had been running the streets for most of that time.
Tobi was adopted from Home Fur Good in Phoenix, Az in October 2011. He was a stray that was picked up running the streets.
Both Jake and Tobi were on the ‘kill’ list at the shelter.
And, of course, Charlie from Ruby Ranch Rescue Phoenix, Az on June 1, 2013
And July 18, 2015 along came Sams (Samson). He is a Standard Poodle that was 61/2 months old. Sadly, he was kept in a backyard with is mother and brother. Never had seen anything else. Sigh….it’s been a trip
