Raising Money for Rescue Dogs

We did it! On Saturday, October 20, Goldie, Don and I  completed the Strut Your Mutt walk in Exposition Park in Los Angeles. It was pretty warm, so it felt more like Stroll Your Mole, but it was fun and sooo rewarding. Our team, Adopt Me Rescue, raised $14,101! I want to thank all of…Read more Raising Money for Rescue Dogs

Pupdate: Goldie’s Progress, Newsletters and more…

          It's been almost 3 months since I adopted sweet, little Goldie, and I'm happy to report she's doing well. Initially she was afraid of Don, which concerned me, but I think it was because his new job was stressing him out, making him somewhat volatile and unpredictable. To be honest,…Read more Pupdate: Goldie’s Progress, Newsletters and more…

The Gold(ie) Standard

  The Gold(ie) Standard My husband and I have been lucky with the stray and rescue dogs who have joined our pack in the past 20+ years.

Keeping it Simple with Lucky Sean O’Sloth

    I feel lucky every time someone orders one of my sloths on Etsy. When a friend suggested I put some of my holiday ornaments on Etsy in December, I never expected people to buy them, especially since there are already a gazillion super cute items there. I've been giving my ornaments away for more than 10 years, and hadn't considered selling them,…Read more Keeping it Simple with Lucky Sean O’Sloth

Good-bye 2017!

When I woke up last Wednesday, I felt a little queasy, which is not unusual for me. But after 15 minutes, the queasiness escalated, and by the time I fed the dogs, there was a burning fluid rushing from my stomach to my throat. I couldn't hold it in. It splattered out of my mouth and…Read more Good-bye 2017!
