The Alleyway

While this is the first spring break that I’m not traveling, I’m still excited. I plan on going home, relaxing in the family hot tub and spending time with family, including the animals.

We have three dogs, two cats and two monkeys my parents claim are my brothers. Still not too sure on that one, but I love the animals.

Tony, our big black Labrador, is a complete goofball. A few years ago, he would chase birds, and I’m pretty sure the birds were entertained. Supposedly, he looks big and scary. I always laugh at this. I’ve dealt with ladybugs that were more dangerous than Tony.

We got Tony from one of Mom’s students. They had puppies, and Tony was the last one. They couldn’t find him a home, and he was set to go to the pound a week later if no one picked him up. I love Tony. He is an overgrown puppy that can catch popcorn in the air.

Sasha is the other outside dog, and belongs to my brother, Kee. Sasha is a boxer with allergies. I forgot how we got her.

Munchkin is mine and my dad’s Chihuahua. He loves blankets, food and naps. Any time one of the family pulls out a blanket, he shadows them. Once they sit, he jumps up and finds the weirdest position to sleep in.

First is one of the two cats. His name is First. He’s Ben’s cat, but he doesn’t really care which human is his person. The reason his name is First is because, when Ben picked him, the woman said he was always the first to escape.

The final animal is Gold. He was a present to my mom from Kee. Blackie, our first cat, passed away, and my mom was sad. So, Kee talked to Dad after he found out his teacher had kittens.

Kee was excited and wanted to get Mom one so she wouldn’t be as sad.

That completes the furry members of the family, and I can’t wait to see them later today.
