Elsie and Chaser, my fur babies and the loves of my life (after my HH, of course–or maybe on par with him).

(“Um, excuse me, Mum, but I asked you to call me Ellen, not Elsie.”)

They’re often my inspiration, almost always my companions (and especially when I eat), and will frequently comment about what I write here.

Update, 2019: After we lost our beloved Elsie in August of 2018, we grieved and recovered. By late 2018, I was itching to have another Girl in the family. And so, we brought little Zoey home with us! Here she is, as a pup:

And as she is at the time of this writing, a crazy teenager:
