My name is Renee. I'm an Irish red head and I live on an Angus farm in East Tennessee with my Irish red-head Charlie and our 3 year old male German Shepherd/wolf mix, Bimmer, our 4 1/2 month old female Fila Brasileiro, Shiva and our pet bull, Calypso, who thinks he's one of the dogs and consequently, won't have anything to do with the other cattle. We've bottle fed him since he was 3 days old. As I write this, I am being accompanied by the dulcet tones of Shiva snoring on the couch - sort of a buzz saw in the key of G-sharp. At some point, she'll wake herself up and look around accusingly to determine who made enough noise to disturb her slumber, prop her chin on the back of the couch and look out the window and grumble at an imaginery interloper, then flop back down and resume snoring . . . or hiccuping . . . or both. Bimmer, being the reasonable and intelligent creature he is, has retreated to the bedroom to sleep in peace.
