About Me: I am a freelance writer and photographer. My Lady & Spooky store at GCU features our Australian Shepherd, Lady, and our Halloween cat, Spooky. The two are great friends and I love photographing their antics. I have another card shop at GCU, Painted Flowers, which is an eclectic assortment of cards Iíve created. http://bobbiholmes.com/

We never thought we were cat peopleÖ.at least not until Spooky the Halloween Cat moved into our home. My husband first noticed him sneaking down the steps of our swimming pool, looking for a drink of water during the hot Arizona summer. By Halloween we adopted the affectionate feline and he moved indoors.
Several years later (November 2008) we brought a new puppy into our home. We named her Lady, and she is an Australian Shepherd. Spooky never liked other cats, but he was always fascinated with dogs. When we babysat a friendís lab, Spooky wanted to play, so we werenít concerned about adding a dog to our family.
On Ladyís first night with us, Spooky assumed the role of nanny. When she awoke, frightened and missing her mama, Spooky joined her in the den and began circling the room, young puppy in tow. It reminded me of a parade. He then wanted out of the room, and when I closed the door he quickly stuck his paw under the door, and began playing with Lady, getting her to chase his paw from one side of the door to the other.
They have been playing ever since.
I have two stores at Greeting Card Universe, Lady and Spooky and Painted Flowers, which is a more eclectic assortment of cards. I also have a shop at
Zazzle. Thanks for visiting!
