I love life, art and animals - in fact, I often say that I prefer my pets to some of the people whom I meet along the way. I also love insects with the exception of parasites;, if, after a rainfall I meet a worm on the path, I will put it back into the grass and feel I have done a good deed!! I like to watch a spider create her web and see the colours as the sun shines on it. I used to do chihuahua rescue work but it became too emotionally tiring and I ended up keeping those that had been abused; of course, there is a limit as to how many dogs can fit on the bed and, as of this moment in time, my bed is filled to capacity. They are all a happy pack now and it was wonderful to see those scared little souls blossom into happy little dogs. It never ceases to amaze me how cruel some people can be to those that are so innocent.
I was born in Scotland but now consider the U.S. my homeland; however, Scotland will always live in my heart.
