In loving memory to my first German Shepherd and muse...
1999 - 2008
Ingela loves pets, in fact she's never been without a dog or a cat since she was a baby. To her, there is nothing like the unconditional love and loyalty of a four-legged friend... Her writing companions: Rogue Warrior, a beautiful, 115 lb black German Shepherd who shadows her everywhere she goes and remains her constant muse. (Rogue actually believes the cats belong to him!) Mei-Mei, a wolf / German Shepherd cross who is as gentle as she is lovely. (A real lady.) And Lu-Lu, a fiesty Border Collie cross who has as more energy than her human companions...

Let's not forget her two cats: Zatoichi von Ratbastard (Ichi for short) is a feisty Manx and the mother of the three cats...Including, Taro, the biggest of the three (weighing over 10 lbs), has the sweetest personality and the silkiest fur you've ever touched.
Since meeting the love of her life, Daniel, in 2011, Ingela's pet family has extended considerably. First there are Ichi's other two kittens, who currently live with Ingela's Mom: Katsu a lazy, orange tabby who adores Ingela's mother (Janice). And Maddy-Shin who's small and feisty like her mother, and loves to bring dead rats and mice into the house. Now onto the dogs...First there's Brutus, (Daniel's son's dog) a sweet, old boxer / lab cross who stayed with Ingela & Daniel for six months (and is still missed). And the newest edition to the pet family? Charmane, a Chow, Janice rescued just a short while ago. What a cutie!
