My name is Caroline, however to my friends I am Carro, so please, you must also call me Carro. For as long as I can remember animals of all kinds have been a major part of my life. For the moment I own two dogs, "Pascha"and "Virus", two cats, "Fluff" and Tuff", and one snake, "Masken.
my fathers I have always had cats, namely Skrutten, Tjejen, Sascha and Nattis.
At my mothers I have had dogs, cats and sometimes birds that we had rescued when
they were injured, it would take far too long to list all their names here, but
let me just say, all of them were very much loved.
I was 10 or 11 years old we acquired two rats from my uncle, they were real
terrorists these Rats
and inflicted serious damage upon my entire room.
For obvious reasons, they soon
went back to the zoo. Besides
rescuing birds, I also rescued a lot of frogs (at
least that is what I thought I was
doing!!!!!) and took care of them until I was absolutely sure they were fit
and healthy enough to leave me and return to their
life in the wild.
when Beata was only 2 years old she was struck down with cancer and sadly I had
to put her to sleep. Agnes was very lonely so I bought her a new friend, Cissy,
but tragedy struck once again and I had to have them both put to sleep one year
later. This is the saddest thing of all when you own rats, they only live to (at
4 years old, mostly just 2 -3 years old and then you have lost them forever.
bought two cats, Marcus and Pigge, 1997 from a "Cat Rescue Center".
At 1 year of age Pigge started to pee and shit all over the house. When we told
him no, he looked at us as he really didn't know he had done anything wrong.
After talking to the the Rescue Center we together decided to put him to sleep. Marcus
was 5 years old
the summer of 2002, and my luck (if
it were not for bad luck, I might have no luck at all)
still goes on. Marcus was an Epileptic, and had medication twice daily, and
would do so for the rest of his life. I sadely took the decision to put him to
sleep this summer, but he knew how much I loved him and I know how
much he loved me.
Now I must Tell You About My Love For The Belgian Shepherd
started with the Malinois puppy Xplorer, bought by my former boyfriend from a
Kennel in Belgium. Actually this is not quite true; Xplorer was the first
Belgian Shepherd I had owned, but I was already in love with the breed for many
Xplorer came along, Belgian Shepherds were beneath my feet from around the time
I was seven years old, at my Motherís and Step Fatherís Groenendael kennel
has his very own site, please feel free to visit him, unfortunately what was
meant to be a life full of fun and happiness never quite eventuated. Xplorer did
bring us much joy and there will always be fond memories of the dog that
didnít quite know who he was, and sadness was waiting just around the corner.
reasons that we may never know or understand, Xplorer had no trust in most
humans, we tried very hard to solve his problems and make him feel safe and
matter how hard we tried, we could never quite convince Xplorer that all would
be well, and sadly at just eighteen months old we had to make the hardest
decision of all, Xplorer is no longer with us, but perhaps now he feels safe and
all that had gone before I could so easily have given up on having another
animal no matter what that animal was, but as the saying goes ďif
you wait long
your turn will comeĒ. Well
I sure waited long enough but when my turn came it was so much better than I
January 2000 my favourite Groenendael bitch
s.r. BSG-oo Chili vít Belgisch Schoon,
was to be mated, and can you believe it,
pedigree name RA
LP Tete Noir Babil.
Babil is a son of my favourite Groenendael male RA
Rush du Loriers,
my luck must surely be changing and I was sure only for the better. What else
could it do, I was to have a male puppy from the litter, I thought what more
could I want. Well my luck did change for the better and I have the proof.
March 24th 2000 the pup that was to become my best friend, was born,
his name is Pascha,
SV-02 LP A-Te-Ellís Monsieur Pascha.
me when I tell you, I have a full time job with this crazy man, he has
endless energy for play and for work, he tricks me all the time and I wonder who
really is The
However I donít wonder for too long as the answer may not be what I want, if you know what I mean. He has what we call the perfect Belgian on/off button Thank God, but the off button sometimes sticks, especially when it came to playing with Marcus, then it was simply an on and on button. Poor Marcus, I had to rescue him, he loved Pascha but not quite that much, Marcus also loved to get some sleep, so he could face Pascha again in the morning, no not really but that was what Pascha thought.
In the winter of 2003 I finally bought two cats to our home. Fluff and Tuff entered our lives and we have a LOT of fun and joy from them. Fluff is a bohemian, sits like a philosopher, thinking all day. Tuff (Tough) is a crazy soul that runs around all day and night, hunting toys, climbing furniture, attacking Pascha and Fluff and so on.....
In the summer of 2005, August 10:th) Virus came along. Virus pedigree name is A-Te-Ell's Monsieur Virus Niger and he is out of Marmara Kiwi and NUCH A-Te-Ell's Monsieur Savoy. Savoy's mother is Chili, Pascha's mother as well. So, Virus and Pascha are related. Maybe you can say that Pascha is "half uncle" to Virus =)
folks that is my story for now, please take a look around my site and donít be
afraid to get in touch with me. Whether you have given me a good or bad critique
it does not matter, I would like to hear from you, this is only chapter one.
