Rhonda: Queen of the Hill

Having finished the weekly radio radio program I produce first thing every Monday, I took The Kids on a walk and went past the mailbox to send the program disk out to the radio station. Then we went up to the shop yard for some play time with Cheyanne and Rhonda."cochise,

The rest have all gone into the Rolling Rescue program and have been adopted into loving homes. Sometimes the new pet parents correspond with us and send photos of the lil darlins in their new places (and those are wonderful). Malachi is a different situation all together.
