We launched our new "Farmgirl Pets" page in the June-July issue of MaryJanesFarm using cute pet photos from our archives. For our next issue, we'd love to feature yours. Not just a snapshot of your pet—we're looking for the "awwhhh" factor! If you have a too-cute, good-quality, high resolution photo of your pet, send it to (Please attach a 300 dpi jpeg, about 4” x 5”.) Include your name, state, and a funny caption.

Looking forward to your ca-ute pet photos!

Michele, he is a cutie! I have such a soft spot in my heart for calves. They all need to be snuggled.

Scolding the steer for breaking out of his pen while I am still in my apron because I was baking cookies when I saw he was out. Fixed the fence, put him back and then husband took the picture of me scolding the steer.

I adore Koalas! I collected them while I was growing up, had everything koala in my room - they have always been my spirit animal! xoxo

Well, look who came to visit our backyard this week! We are very fortunate to live in such a peaceful place where the native wildlife find it safe to visit.

The things you can find on a walk!
Out in the middle of nowhere Oskar and I heard a meow, and out stepped this kitten. He followed us home, and i named him Trip Hazard. He was going to a friend's place to be a barn cat, but my husband decided to keep him. Shrek is not impressed with him.

HI LISA!!! Oh my GOSH have I missed you!!! We really need to catch up! We actually got her at a local pet shop - one well known for taking good care of their rescue pets. She is amazing - AMAZING! We are truly, truly blessed to have her! Our son and I have been toying with the idea of adopting a little friend for her, but I'm not sure I can handle any more responsibility! She is just such a social girl, always making friends wherever she goes. I think she would do GREAT with a little sister or brother - she or he would be great company for her! I just honestly don't know if I can handle the extra work. I'm praying about it, for sure! ;)

Also, since she has had such a dramatic effect on my husband's health, his doctor did give us a letter recommending her as his emotional support dog I'm just not sure where to get her trained. I've called everywhere I can think of locally and in Pittsburgh, but nobody seems to know where I can take her. I know I can't afford to have her trained as his service dog - it is UBER expensive, from what I have been told. But it would be really great to at least be able to get her a certification so she can accompany him where legally permissible as his illness progresses. I was told by a lady I met in Costco that there are no real legal guidelines for an emotional support dog...She said you basically get a letter from the doctor, register her online and then buy her the harness. But that just can't be right. Does anyone know for sure??? I really would like to get this done soon.

Hugs and love -

Oh Nini! I am so glad to hear this. I like dogs more than most people, and you have a true gift there. SO glad to hear from you. She is most adorable. Where did you find her?
So glad to hear from you; I think of you often.

Hi Girls!

This is our baby Bella... She entered our lives two years ago after a long time of convincing my hubby how much we needed her. As some of you know, my husband was diagnosed with frontotemporal lobe dementia about 6 years ago. It's a very aggressive form of dementia that changed our entire lives without warning. Four years in, my young, once virile husband was almost completely unresponsive, perfectly content to sit in his chair staring at the television watching the same re-runs over and over. We had discussed the possibility and benefits of bringing a new dog into our lives could be for my husband, but after losing our beloved Pawlee, he just didn't want to hear it. One day, however, he had an incident that really shook him - one of the first times he really noticed that he was changing. It scared him, and he asked me if I really thought having a dog could help him. My resounding yes was met with an extremely hesitant ok. We went and picked her up that evening, and our lives haven't been the same since. My husband took a while to warm up to her. But one day I walked into the living room and found her sitting on his lap, with him sneaking her a little bit of the snack on his plate, and I knew he was hooked. And I had not seen him engage with anyone like that in a month of Sundays. It was simply amazing to see how he slowly but steadily came out of his shell a little bit. She is a very affectionate dog and LOVINGLY demands everyone's love and attention, and he finds her absolutely irresistible. We had a little setback shortly after we adopted her; there was horrible accident left her with a broken leg. It made me heartsick and my husband was overwhelmed and had a big setback, but it didn't for a moment quench her spirit at all! She was truly an inspiration - nothing broke her stride! I, however, was ridiculous about her after that, spoiling her rotten - but she deserved it. As a result, we are pretty sure she doesn't know she is a dog. (Ssshhhhhh! Please don't tell her she isn't human! LOL!) Television became my husband's even closer friend for a while, but like the waves that return to a storm-stricken beach back to a natural beauty, Bella soon won his heart over again, bringing him a little bit out of his shell again, and became my husband's BEST friend. She will engage his attention in incredible ways. She stares at him, whines until he notices, brings a toy over, all sorts of things... It's like she knows when he isn't right, and she will do whatever it takes to "wake" him out of it. Some days he just sleeps and sleeps, so she will jump up on the bed and lick his ear until he rouses. Then she brings him toys until he gets up. She doesn't let up, and he may take a while to come around, but eventually his attention is turned to her and he loves it. When he is up and ready to start the day, he will give her a treat or take her outside for a short walk around the block. Even more incredible, every day as part of their routine, come sun, rain or snow, they enjoy a long walk along the lake at the local park. His favorite thing is sneaking her over to Dairy Queen on a hot summer day for a puppy cup. He will even pop into the back seat to hold her cup for her - lol! She never barks, we never taught her not to, it's as if she knows it would upset him. She never runs away from his side, even if she isn't on a leash. And oh, how she makes him laugh - something he doesn't ever do anymore... One day he caught her out in the garden eating our spaghetti squash and he just stood there watching and giggling! She is definitely Daddy's girl, and she is definitely an amazing gift. She is wonderful! It's very hard to see what this horrible disease is doing to my husband... but the way his eyes light up when he is with her is a blessing beyond compare! She truly is my man's best friend! Everyone should have a Bella! Hugs and love - Nini
