We Love Our Pets!Posted by Matt on July 06 at 10:47 am
Here at Lima Beads, we love our pets and we’re always intrigued by the number of Lima customers with a reference to an animal in their screen name or profile photo. Pets are such an important part of our family and lives. You can meet the Lima team pets below and tell us about your pets (include photos!) in the comments.
Meet the Lima Pets
My wife and I have a Maltese, Minnie, and a dwarf hamster, Sebastian (we call him Sea Bass). Now that we have our own place, Minnie can come live with us again. We’re so happy to have her back. We would try to sneak her in to the apartment every once in a while, but every time we walked out the door, she would bark like crazy. She obviously didn’t understand the consequences!
As for Sea Bass, he loves to run on his wheel. So much so that the constant squeaking was keeping us up at night. After a few applications of olive oil on the plastic axle, I think we’ve finally fixed it.
Kevin & Ali
Ali and I adopted Dakota from The Humane Society 7 years ago. They told us he was 2 years old, but in the first 6 months after we brought him home, he gained 25 pounds. We figure he was more like 6 months! He’s about 8 years old now and still acts like a puppy — endless energy, high-pitched bark, and all. We like to play fetch with the tennis ball to see who gets tired first. It’s always me…
I don’t have any pets myself, but my closest animal companions are my girlfriend Shannon’s dog Reesey and lovebird Lanny. Reesey is an Irish Setter mix from an adoption shelter who is usually being lazy somewhere (except when there is a bird in sight). She has a wonderful temperament and loves walking on trails and sunning herself on the patio. Lanny the lovebird doesn’t care for me that much, but she loves cuddling up in blankets and looking out the window. Her beak is powerful (trust me), and one time she sat on Reesey’s head and pecked her, causing Reesey to keep her distance from then on!
I have two crazy dogs. Their names are Diamond and Onyx. We probably spoil them too much. We have had Diamond for 5 years now and Onyx for 4. They still act like puppies even though they are approaching middle age! They love each other and would be lost without one another. They love going for car rides, walks and bunny rabbits! My house would probably be a lot quieter without them, but I would not have it any other way!
My cats are strays we took in. Their names are Toots and Skittles. Great cats and apparently both are pregnant. My kids are excited but the possibility of maybe 12 kitties is crazy!! Anyone want one?
My dog’s name is Kira. She’s an 8 year old chocolate lab. She like swimming in our pond and has become an expert frog hunter! She pretends to not like the cats but we’ve caught her playing with them! I don’t know how she’ll do with the new kitties. Again, know anyone who wants a kitty?
This is my cat Max, who I adopted from the local humane society nine years ago.
He basically sleeps all day long, but those rare hours when he is awake he is underfoot, looking for attention, and is without a doubt purring. Unfortunately, he had to stay home with my parents when I went off to school, but luckily he still remembers me when I come home! Even though I probably have a biased opinion, I truly believe that he is the best cat ever!
