Fritz was the love of my life. He was trained so well. I wish I had more pictures of him. My housemate and I bought him together when we were together. I love little Ace, in part, because he sorta reminds me of Fritz.

Fritz and my first Italian Greyhound, Puppet. They owned me.

My first dog, Laddie. He actually belonged to a neighbor but adopted me. I had just turned four in this picture.
Fritz is a dogs dog, Kim. They stay in our hearts forever. K

OK, I admit I'm stretching the definition of "animal companions " but can I include a wild turkey? I kept seeing a single wild turkey everyday hanging around unusually close to my house and barn for a couple of weeks and then I didn't. I thought it had left but surprise, surprise discovered it had made a nest in the dog house attached to the barn! It has been "setting" for a few weeks now and can't wait to see the babies!

This is absolutely valid. Even better, this turkey chose you! What is mama's name (I am assuming you named her)?

Great place for a nest! It looks like the dog hasn’t been using the dog house recently.

I’ll share this one too since we’re on the subject of wild birds. But I can’t take credit for it. A friend of mine has an owl box on the side of her barn. She noticed these baby barn owls sleeping on top of the owl box. They had grown big enough to leave the nest, but not quite big enough to fly. They sleep during the daytime, so I got to come over and see them. What a treat!

Shiftkicker, I am the least imaginative person when it comes to naming! Would love any suggestions, I'm sure they would be a lot better than the one that has been suggested so far..." Thanksgiving"!

Karen, I'm so jealous. I've been obsessing about how to attract barn owls to my barn, they are my favorite.
