Introducing my family

I live on 20 acres in a peaceful area out west of Ipswich in Queensland, Australia. To read how I came to be here, please read History of Sammy & Puppies

Living with me are my Mama (Sammy):

and my brother Raja (making faces at the camera):

and my sister, Elisabeth. She wouldn't keep still and had to sniff the camera:

and 2 cat siblings - Casey & Patch. They refused to pose unless food was offered:

and some chicken (chooks). We have 5 chooks, here is one of them with a Noisy Miner bird:

We also share the place with lots of wild birds including cockatoos, galahs, lorikeets (rainbow and scaly breasted), corellas (long and short billed), peewees, willy wagtails, magpies, butcherbirds, noisy miners, blue-faced honey eaters, doves and pigeons. In fact, we have listed 63 different types of bird who also call our patch "home".

And we usually have some horses around the place:
