What being part of The Paw Crew is first and foremost, being part of the family.
Each member plays their own special role that no other can do like they can. Working their wheekers for extra corn husks and silks, they enjoy life in a luxury of comfort and are happy to greet me each day with the "boop" hello. Always eager for new things to try out, they make their opinions well known if something is a hit or miss, or if something just needs a bit more work. Never forced to do anything unwilling, they are usually happy to climb aboard, unless of course it involves a vet, nail trims, or a bath! Sometimes the scale isn't very nice either, but that's more of a after dinner taboo.
While on the adventure to get Beatriz, Luna was picked for us, and not a single regret since. She is extremely shy and knows a snuggly house when she tries it, so she's become our Master Technician and lead house design tester, leg room is extremely important to this girl! She also likes the plushy fleeces, and since she is pretty clean and mostly potties in corners and not in her houses, she will get to further help with testing more specialty fleeces. A very rare job indeed.
Loves getting paid in fresh leafy greens and crunchy veggies, with bonuses each week of either blueberries, cranberries, grapes, or strawberries. She likes a bit of tart with her sweet, but she just loves it all and this really big girl shows it in all her lovely curves. How big you ask? twice the size of a guinea pig and over 6lbs.
After the holiday storms from 2015, I found this little girl and her sister at a shelter in much need of some love. After several months, Ellie made a full recovery but stayed close to her sister until she sadly, left us. Ellie now loves to adventure around the home, stopping by to see Clover at her bed, and less enjoyable, cleaning missed or newly made cobb webs with her whiskers. Other occupations are testing products, new ideas, and improvements.
Loves getting paid with all sorts of fresh veggies but go light on the cucumber and green bean please. Not a huge sweet fan unless it's watermelon or grapes. Her favorite is getting different types of hay with either barley or botanical mix, mixed in with the hay being her absolute favorites.
Guardian and protector of the homestead. A big baby at heart that will jump at a leaf and cowers to thunder, but visitors beware. She sounds like a live wire as stereotype smaller dogs do, greeting her must be done slowly with our help so she can overcome the freight of a stranger. While we will never put our full trust in her to watch out for the smaller animals, she always stands ready to give bark protection and keep any in her home from harm.
Loves getting paid with snuggles, belly rubs, or any kind of attention. Of course, her special meat & peanut butter treats, and the occasional ice cream bowl sharing. Scavenging for the stray piggy "tic-tacs" is a favorite past time.
Sadly, the rest of The Paw Crew family has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. We spent many great years together, and while no longer with us in body, they will be Forever In Our Hearts.
Forever Part Of Our Family.
