Pretty Boy Floyd
"PB Floyd", "The Floyd
"Super Dog", "Poppy"
Rescued from the pound one month
before we were married
Heroic acts included:
Saving our horse from colic
Raising our cat (and his "brother") Clyde
Floyd was known for his singing abilities,
high intelligence, & killer good looks
Most well-known dog in Xenia
"John's Little Silver Princess",
"Goddess of All Squirrels",
"The Face", "Fat-Bottomed Girl"
Thoroughly completed John's
squirrel education as well as that of
all others who were interested
"The Best Seminar Assistant I Ever Had!"
"Punkin' Man", "Ellie
"Pinky", "Sweet Pea"
Lots of names for a squirrel who had
lots of personality and sweetness
He made friends everywhere he went,
and he went lots of places
What can we say about Darla?
She was our "wild child"
Rescued from the jaws of a
golden retriever at 2 months-old
She always kept her wild edge!
But she was becoming a good pet
Last on the Gray Squirrel list
She was actually John's first squirrel baby
She was the beginning of John's
She was a "tomboy"
for 11 and a half years
"Our Little Red Angel"
We raised her from about one month-old
and release her when she was about
We saw her with her family one year later
The "Playful Terror"
Never far from his beloved truck tire toy
He was the first lion we had the honor
and privilege of knowing
The Greatest "Handicap"
to ever step hoof on the track
Three-time Eclipse Horse of the Year
One of my all-time equine heroes
He had a "come from behind"-style
of running that would stop your heart
Shown in his retirement at
The Kentucky Horse Park
Great New York-based race horse
I reproduced his likeness many times
in oils for trainer Jan Nerud & had
a long relationship with Tartan Farms
