“Cosa” our Black dog when she was about 6 months old. Melissa and Lanny came home and found her with a plastic water dish she destroyed around her body.
This was Gina, our Samoyed. We believe she was approximately 10 years old when this picture was taken, on 04 October 2009. She was put to sleep on 24 December 2013. Gina was a wonderful pet and we have many great memories of her. A proper grave was dug and she had a short Memorial service. Rest in Peace Gina!
Early one morning, we found this tiny bat, sleeping, suspended from a cable to a stereo speaker in our living room. We had never seen anything like this in our house before. It apparently came into our inner patio and stayed that night. 15 February 2010

Smoke, after the launch of the Space Shuttle “Atlantis”, STS-101, on 19 May 2000. We were on Kennedy Space Center, approximately 6 air miles from the launch pad. This photo was taken when the Space Shuttle was approximately 200 miles from Kennedy Space Center, over the Atlantic Ocean. The white dot to the right of the smoke is the Space Shuttle. Pilar was approximately 4 months pregnant with Melissa when we were in Florida and we saw this launch, very early in the morning, with our late friend, Richard, the day we returned to Colombia. Watching the launch was a spectacular experience we will never forget. We are leaving this picture here, as our memorial to those who died aboard STS-107, “Columbia”, in 2003.
This was Gina, our Samoyed, with 3 Toy Pinchers using her as a sofa. This was a very common sight. The photo was taken on 29 May 2007. Rest in Peace Gina!
