Meet Jasmine

My brother and his family live in eastern Colorado, so we don't get the chance to see them often but we managed to meet up in eastern Washington this summer for a week. Back home they have a mini-ranch with dogs, cats, goats, pigs, chickens and probably a few other things I've forgotten (Oh yeah...three kids). Since they don't seem to have enough to take care of they also foster rescued Grate Danes and whatever else crosses their path. On our way to the cabin our girls wanted to know if their aunt and uncle would bring the dogs. I told them I didn't think so since they had such a long drive to make but I was wrong. They stuffed themselves, three kids, three dogs and a rescued Quaker Parakeet named Jasmine into their car for the trip.

  1. The world needs more people with big hearts to help out critters down on their luck. Thanks for showing us pretty miss Jasmine.

  2. A beautiful bird; does it have problems picking at its feathers...the wing looks a little ragged.

  3. Kate-- yes, Jasmine has anxiety issues and plucks her feathers out when she's left behind. Hence the reason for her inclusion on the road trip!

  6. I love your brother's family! I want to read the book, see the movie!

    My sister is living a similar life in PA - horse farm, with assorted extraneous species: pot bellied pigs, goats, chickens, a zillion cats, dog, 3 kids, and more energy than any family I have known for healing what ails beasts that need help, not to mention other community involvement.

    Jasmine is lovely - such a sweet face. How nice she could make the trip.
