A Horse Named Starshine

By high school, I had graduated from small pets to one big one — a paint horse named Starshine. I was able to board her close to my neighborhood, so I often rode her home to bathe her in the front yard.

Kitty Goes to College

In college, I missed having animals. Senior year, I adopted a cute little black and white kitten. He lived in the dorm and went to classes with me. He was even in my senior yearbook photo.

Katie is the newest member of our family. Here she is with her favorite sock. She carries it around like a toy, so it’s no longer a white sock. It’s a gray sock.

About 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy and History

For the third year, Amy Coffin of the We Tree Genealogy Blog has created 52 weeks of prompts for genealogy bloggers. The theme for 2011 is 52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy and History. These are shared on the Geneabloggers.com web site, hosted by Thomas MacEntee.

Week 17: Pets. Did you have any pets as a child? If so, what types and what were their names. Do you have pets now? Describe them as well. If you did not have pets, you can discuss those of neighbors or other family members.
