"The Wise Man Grows It Under His Feet."
All I can say is Life is Happening!!!
Busier than usual around here!!! I'm tired but happy..
As with many things we go in cycles and some months I have many of the same breed.
This month, it is lots of Big White Fluffy dogs..
I have 3 purebred Great Pyrenees and 6 Pyrenees/mixes.
If you love the way these dogs look, but have never had a giant breed or a Pyrenees, please read this article "Is A Pyr For Me?"
Until moving to the south, I would have never thought there would be so many Great Pyrenees down here.
With the current state of affairs, the recession and the drought last year, people are losing their farms/homes and letting their dogs go, we are seeing record numbers of Pyrs at the pounds.
I just wanted to let you know that if you are interested in any of our dogs here, there is transport available if you live on the east coast, Alabama, Georgia & Florida. "P.E.T.S." just delivered "Hazel" to her new parents in Vermont, where I am told she is doing well and loving her new family:) I know Pam and Kyle and they do a wonderful job of delivering the dogs to their new destinations, safe and sound.
Here is the "Route" if you want to see if you are within drivng distance.
Last but not least, yes I know it is not a BIG Fluffy dog, but it is super darling and I haven't been posting cats or kittens for awhile.
I was blessed with an afternoon visit from "Rebecca Sower" and her son.
They came to visit and adopt a kitten, they have named "Maybelle".
I know she will be cherished and am thrilled that she will be a part of their family for many years to come.
If you have never had the chance to meet Rebecca, she is a joy to behold.
A fabulous artist who is finds beauty is all that surrounds her.
The momma and the kittens were actually rescued by my friend Pam, but needed my help with the veterinary care for her.
She had a tooth punctured the side of her mouth and needed to be removed. Pam works wonders with my fosters and I couldn't do as much without her:)
So much to tell, so many faces here....
Will try to post sooner, but life gets away from me, when there are so many to care for.
We are still working on the building, having some problems with finding sub contractors that understand what I am doing and that I have very specific santition needs for the building.
For example:I was told to just drain it out into my fields:( CAN you say ICK!!
More on that later, but I am finding building and trying to build correctly is not easy.
Scooter, Grace and I just wanted to say hello. We took Scooter on the New London Ferry to Orient Point, NY last week to visit family. He was a big hit with all the passengers, (kids & adults alike!) He's such a doll. He's very happy that spring has come to New England, and there's no more snow. Scooter is sporting a "puppy cut" these days. It seems to suit his personality. We love him so much.
Give our love to Jeff, and tell Jeff to give you a big hug and kiss from us.
Thank you for what you do.
Peter Max was in the news in 2002 when he offered to provide a life of green fields for Cinci Freedom, a cow that escaped from an Ohio slaughterhouse. The cow leapt over a six-foot fence while the slaughterhouse workers were on break and eluded capture for eleven days. "This little girl's will—facing the end of her life, being so frightened, then taking the risk of all risks to live, to be free—touched me so deeply," Max was quoted as saying, "It was so inspiring. I knew I had to try to preserve that wonderful spirit." Max donated $180,000 worth of his art to benefit the local Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, to ensure her a long life of peace at a New York Farm Sanctuary.
Thought you would enjoy hearing this.
