I Heart My Dog!

 F.Y.I...Here are some cute doggies that need a home! My newest art collection "LOVE MY DOG" at Aimee Ashers is dedicated to our lil' Miniature Schnauzer, Pepper Ann. She had not been feeling well, so we took her to the Vet to check it out.  After several tests and $800 we were told that she has cancer. There is not much we can do for her, but give her pain meds to make her more comfortable and spoil her rotten until her time comes... She is the sweetest lil' pup, and a bit of a misfit as far as Schnauzers go...she has the biggest ears, that stick straight up, Sooo cute! She has been a beloved member of our family for eight years. It will be a very sad day in the Furnell house when she no longer greets us at the door with her happy squeals, a warm hug and a kiss on the cheek. She will be missed...   Warm Hugs,  Laurie

Newest Members of our Family...Baby Chicks!

Aren't they the cutiest! Six lil' chickies have come to live with us. Our goal is to have fresh home grown eggs every day or so in about 5 months, but we shall see about that. I have fond memories of collecting eggs at my Grandma's ranch when I was small and wanted to make some fun memories for my grandkids too! Plus, we get the added bonus of something good to eat...the eggs, not the chickens themselves...ewwwww...I don't think I could do that, especially after we name them, lol!
They will be ready for the backyard chicken coop in a month or so. Hope the neighbors don't mind.

My little chicks where an inspiration for my newest art kit at Aimee Ashers.
Go check them out!
