This is my basset hound, Rupert. He turned up as a stray at the animal sanctuary where I was volunteering. When no one claimed him, I brought him home. He's super-cute and he knows it. He uses his good looks and charm to get out of trouble.
We rescued Tia Maria (right) from a factory when she was barely weaned. Our older cat, Sushi, took her under her wing and completely mothered her, even though Sushi is spayed and has never had any babies. Two and a half years later, they still sleep, play and groom together. It's difficult to see in these photos, but the tabby patch on Sushi's side forms a heart :)
