The moment you enter the Richville home of Jeanne Cannaday and Gary Ruehmann, you know you're in a house filled with love.

From the three dogs who greet you joyfully when you knock on the door, to the cats of every shape, size, age and description you find around just about every corner -- sleeping, playing, eating, or begging shamelessly for a quick petting -- the couple's home contains an overabundance of four-legged, furry friends.
