Currently I am affiliated daily with four pets. A greyhound mix (lurcher) named Jimmie, a beagle named Henry,
a domestic short hair orange cat named Stench and two ferrets named Simone and Rugrat. Here
are some images.
This is Jimmie. I got him in July of 1997 when he was only 3 1/2 months old.
He seems to adore cameras. He always looks like he is posing. I printed out little
copies of this image on a color laser printer and glued them in my Christmas cards
When he was an only dog, Jimmie went on a lot of adventures. Here's Jimmie in the
summer of 1999 when Ryan Schutt, Mike Miller and I rented a speed boat on Smith Mountain

This is Henry. We inherited him in February 2000 when he was about 8 months old. He originally belonged to my grandmother.
I know of at least one self-declared dog hater that Henry seduced. Now that
individual wants a dog of his own!
Henry has had some adventures of his own. Here is him meeting the Hokie Bird.
At first Henry was howling his full head off and chased after the Hokie Bird. However, once the Hokie
Bird turned around, Henry metamorphisized into the cowarding wuss you see here.
Here is Henry performing one of his favorite activities-- Piercing eardrums with a bellowing aroo.
This is Jimmie with one of the ferrets, Rugrat. Jimmie seems to be
more fascinated with that toilet brush (UNUSED!). That's okay because Rugrat seems
suitably intriqued by that sock (probably used). Incidently that toilet brush
glows in the blacklight.
This is Jimmie, Henry and I at the Cascades in Southwestern Virginia. This picture was taken
in March 2002 and is courtesy of Chris Mullins.
This is Jimmie admiring the view from Angel's Rest (part of the Appalacian Trail near Pearisburg, VA) in November 2002.
This is Henry at the top of Angel's Rest. He is also admiring a view, but more cautiously than Jimmie!

This is my Halloween costume for 2002. With the help of the ferrets,
I was a Wak-A-Mole Machine!
