Hi, I'm Sue and my husband is Ellie. We call ourselves the Fairfield Zoo. We used to have only cats - 4 of them. Then we got our Buddy - he is a smooth coated boarder collie rescued from New Orleans after Katrina. A year later we found a home for one of the cats who could not get along with others. Two weeks later we took on another dog. This one is a Bichon Frise named Mitzie. Her previous owner needed to find a home for her. Mitzie is short for Mitziut and means "reality" in Hebrew. Our friend learned that reality poops in our bedroom. Ah well. We are looking forward to learning lots of new tricks. Buddy picks them up so fast and we need to keep his keen mind moving!
