Actually we have 3 dogs and 5 cats between us. 2 other teachers and I (supposedly the retired one ...who is working til June in a Resource room..!!) bought a house on an acre together. We overlook the Skagit Valley above, and kind of across the valley from, the costco. We have LOTS of bird feeders to bring in many birdies. We've gotten some great pics of the birds at our feeders.
