Number 30 and Other stuff!

I was excited to find that as of today I have 30 followers!  YAY!  I really didn't think I'd ever have anyone who would want to follow me when I first started this blog but, I was wrong!  My original goal was to just write, to vent, to journal so any followers for me is a BIG plus!  Now I find that I am accomplishing those things and meeting some great new people, reading wonderful blogs and learning many things as well. me give a big Country Girl welcome to #30: 
It looks like she has some wonderful stuff to make primitive goodies if you haven't found her yet. 


And now onto other topics!  One of my wonderful new blogging friends is Lauren from

If you follow Lauren you know that she and I share a passion for rescuing dogs.  Lauren often writes about her foster Pug furbabies.  I was reminded of Lauren last night while watching the late News when a story came on about a retired Policewoman here in Phoenix, who was injured on the job when she was hit head on by a car while riding her motorcycle.  The crash left her with some irreversible brain damage in the form of seizures.  To make a long story short, this woman had a Pug service dog named Lucy who warns her of impending seizures!   Her Lucy will start an intense whining that tells her it is time to take a pill.  She has been seizure free since the dog had come to live with her!   I found it ironic that her dogs name is Lucy and our Lauren's Pug's name is......LOOCIE!!  

And while I'm at it, meet Wendell.  Wendell, an English Cocker Spaniel, was saved from certain death at a shelter last month in Indiana.  He came to FenceRow Farms, rescued with the hopes of finding a 'furever' home.  I really haven't blogged about it but, FenceRow Farms is my home in Indiana.  It's our kennel name and where we raised and showed Champion English Cockers, rescued Greyhounds, and operated a public boarding kennel for a number of years. 

Well it didn't take long for a wonderful couple to adopt Wendell and he is living the life of Riley now!!  They are in love.  Doesn't he look like he has lived on that bed forever!

My point here is that dogs are amazing creatures often going above and beyond what we humans think they are capable of.  So......if you need a companion in your life, someone to love you unconditionally, to be with you, to help you through rough times.....PLEASE consider saving a life and adopt a rescue dog.  It can make all the difference in the world to you and to that dog!

Hope you all have a warm and furry day!


  1. Congratulations Karen on follower 31. Finding a new follower is always a surprise to me too.

    I just got my 50th just now and was so surprized because I haven't even blogged lately.

    I admire people like you for having so much love to give to these poor furry creatures who needs a home. JB

  2. You sound like me - I didn't think I would ever get 10 followers and I get so excited when I log in and see another one!

  3. What a beautiful dog...thank you for helping find him a home.

    Congratulations on your followers...they will grow.

  4. What a beautiful boy!!!! So glad he found a home!

    What a great post. Congrats on #31. Let me tell you, I still get excited when I get a new follower. I feel like Sally Field. "They like me. They really like me"!
    A pug service dog??? I had never heard of one but that is just a great story.
    I'm so happy you were able to save Wendell. Doesn't it feel good knowing you made a difference and saved his life? Keep up the good work, dear friend. I am so glad to have "met" you!
    Loocie hugs :)

  6. Congratulations on the success of your blog!

    Wendell looks like a sweetheart, and fully deserving of his new home. Having severe allergies, I'm limited to purebreds from known non-shedding breeds. Even so, I'm fairly certain that my next dog will be a rescued Standard Poodle. My hat's off to you and others who are involved in rescue - it's not for the faint of heart.


I love hearing from you so please leave me a message!
