This is just the beginning, but here is where it starts...
Seems like just yesterday, we moved to Tennessee and this winter it will be 3 years.
The building will be 30 x 60 with 4000 square feet of outdoor kenneling.
We will have a few acres fenced off with different yards for the dogs to run and play after their 3 week quarantine.
The shelter will be dedicated to the artists and animal lovers who have helped me create this program. The animals and I are grateful everyday..
I know I sound like a broken record, but I feel you cannot let people know enough how much they are appreciated:) And I do appreciate you..
From the bottom of my heart I THANK YOU for being a part of this journey with me!!!
Life has been extremely, insanely, busy lately, with family issues, caring for the little ones and getting my professional work done. So if you are waiting for an e-mail or box from me, the mail is packed waiting for me to drive it to town and I have the e-mail on my to do list..
Jeff is doing as well as can be expected and we are headed back to the doctors tomorrow.
The shelter being built has given him some new life, he is trying his hardest to stay on his feet.
Balance and walking is very difficult for him, but he has put so much work into the plans for this place it only seems right that he be right there, even if it means sitting in a chair, with a cold drink, while they are building.
This blog is usually where I write about art & the animals, but I am sure Jeff would be tickled if you left a comment for him. He has done so much for the little ones here, the scared and the unsocialized I find it only fitting to dedicate this post to him.
Artwork has started coming in from my friends to decorate the shelter, even though it will be months before we can hang it, I believe we will not only have a functional shelter, but a very colorful, vibrant and fun place for the animals.
Later this week, I will be writing to qualify us for many of the animal programs & grants available... Tons to do, so I better get to it!!!
Again, a million kisses and hugs from one very excited crazy dog lady:)
