During the holidays, we added some lovely new animals to our already crowded wildlife refuge.  Pre-Christmas, our zoo consisted of Phillip (turtle), Champ and Spike (geckos), Brutus the Beefcake (clown fish), Shrimp (a shrimp), Crabby (horseshoe crab) and the energetic Bodie (golden retriever). I know what you are thinking ... Yes, I admit it, I am a sucker for Boys 1, 2 and 3 and their requests for things that wriggle and scuttle about. You need to know that I have consistently objected to these requests for the various beasts we own and care for.
