CHESTER: Springer Spaniel. My darling dog. I found Chester in a pet shop at Chermside in 1993. He was a strong natured dog who loved swimming and 'fishing' along the shore line of Wynnum. He loved hanging his head out the car window and would eat anything. Chester loved his food! He travelled with me from Brisbane to Moranbah, on to Emerald and then to Tassie. He passed away in 2008 having been a diabetic for 3 years. He is buried in the 'quadrangle' garden in Westbury and a beautiful water feature marks his grave. Chester was also know as Chester Bean and Beanie.
MAX: Maltese Terrier. Max also known as Maxy-moo, Moo-ball and Mooter.
KITTEN: Big black cat with 2 inch tail. Also known as Felix and Felixo-kitten. Kitten was rescued from the RSPCA in Brisbane, in 1998. They told me she was a 'Manx' but in fact she was just a gorgeous cat with a tiny tail! Kitten was a very reserved cat and spent her days sleeping on the same spot in the spare room. She moved from Brisbane to Moranbah with me but continued to have as little to do with humans as possible. Then she met Rob!! It was love at first sight for Kitten. In fact Kitten's reaction to Rob made me realise Rob was a pretty special sort of man. So I have Kitten to thank for my husband! Kitten loves to sunbake, snooze in boxes and drool on Rob's chest at night. She is the 'boss' cat.
ANNIE: The shed cat also known as Annie-Pannie or Pants. Annie adopted us in 2005 when she appeared one night as I was calling the animals for dinner. She is a shy little girl who was happy to live in the shed and keep away from the other cats - who of course were not happy about her arrival on the scene. Annie copped a lot of beatings but she stayed and on our move to Norfolk Island has exerted her
