on wet, foggy days i am a big fan of some delicious soup!
that's home-made miso soup made from fermented soya bean paste (you know i love anything fermented!), dried seaweed and mushrooms! it was delicious!
and now for a little cutie!
her name is Cleo and i wish that she were ours. but as you can tell from her stoic face - she is a strong American - strong, proud and free. Cleo is one of the amazing dogs from Dogs Saving Dogs (http://www.dogssavingdogs.com/).
i first learned about Dogs Saving Dogs from Brigid over at Home on the Range. Dogs Saving Dogs is an unique dog rescue that offers high-quality, locally-engraved charm sets - a necklace for you and a charm for your dog's collar - with 50% of all revenue going to save the dog. the charm set is personalized with the name of the dog that you helped save! i just received my set and they are beautiful!!!
in case you can't read what the necklace says, it reads "Cleo" and underneath it says "I helped save". Isn't that beautiful????
please go and check out the Dogs Saving Dogs website. i was thrilled with the site, it's awesome goals and it's unique approach to saving dogs! the fact that after i contacted the site asking for information and got a prompt and lovely response in under 12 hours shows me just how much this company cares about what they are doing, and about their customers.
i am saving my charm set and plan to purchase a few more between now and Christmas. Cape Bretoners love their dogs and these will make beautiful gifts to give to our friends. and then one day, when the time is right, and we get our own rescue dog, our dog will proudly wear another charm of another dog that we will have helped save.
i know that we have a lot of dog lovers as readers and if you could just pass on word of mouth about this wonderful organization, that would be great!
What a lovely way to help those doggies. Will go look at the site.ReplyDelete
thanks Rosezeeta - they are doing some excellent work! xoxDelete
I'm all for SOME fermented products, but soy isn't one of them! lolReplyDelete
Gorges - by your "lol" at the end - i think i know why - bahahahah! much love to you!Delete
WOO HOO dirt!!! Soon you will have exposed dirt everywhere and Jamby will be back out digging another trench for some reason. Perhaps it will still be cold and he will need........ReplyDelete
A TRENCH WARMER!!!!
Do they have a cat partnership in that rescue operation? I got plenty of cats they can come rescue :)
PP- bahahahahah! yer such a nutter!Delete
i asked them about doing a cat partnership and they plan to do so. they are a really young company but they know what they are doing. but no - i don't think they want your cats - yours are waaaay too happy where they are! love ya brother!
I have three dogs, my last is a rescue.ReplyDelete
good for you, ltw! 2 of our cats were abandoned and we took them in. we're like PP above - people drop off cats and dogs out here and at PP's locale and although he doesn't like to admit it - he's a big softie and takes in all of the drop-offs. xoxDelete
Exposed dirt with no melted snow is mud waiting to happen...Fire up the meals, Jam's going to need them.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the dog site. I will go check it out.
Tb - you are correct Sir! all of the exposed dirt is mud right now and we are looking at a good month of mud. thanks for checking out the site - they are a great organization!!!Delete
Congratulations on your dirt, Kymber! You haven't made any mud pies, by chance, have you??ReplyDelete
thank you so much Miss Fern! only a fellow gardener/homesteader would know how exciting a little bit of dirt would be after this long winter!!! no mud pies but how about mud cat prints all over the house - arghghghghgh!Delete
Squishy between the toes is definitely mud ;)ReplyDelete
DSD sounds wonderful - love the little charms.
yer right Dani and i love seeing dirt! DSD is pretty wonderful and the charms are adorable!Delete
btw - planted your piquante and bird's eye chili seeds today - thanks so much for sending them! xoxo
Enjoy your dirt, soon you will be all up in it planting, changing, building, etc. We are seeding the property next weekend, it's Spring, even if it snows once in a while.ReplyDelete
thanks Max - i am glad to hear that you and Rock are enjoying your hikes regardless of snow!!!Delete
My ferrets are filing a lawsuit demanding equal hold on your affections.ReplyDelete
Actually, there are so many animals in such dire straits that anything anyone does to help is a blessing. I know you have a kind heart, Kymber. That's one of the many reasons I'm glad we are friends.
Harry - i have been keeping my eye out for ferrets needing rescue up here but they aren't very popular on the island and it seems that the folks who do get them are like you - they keep their ferrets for like! but you are so right - there are so many animals needing help that if we all can do what we can do - then it makes that much difference! you have a kind heart, too, my dear friend - which is why we respect and appreciate you so much! xoxoxDelete
As an American, we are strong and proud but I don't think we are as free as we used to be. We have become slaves to our run away government and it is probably time for another revolt!ReplyDelete
Not to rub it in or anything, but we planted some salad stuff in our planter on the back deck this weekend.
Ed - you had to rub it in didn't you - bahahahahah! i got some seeds planted today and will be able to start some salad stuff in the greenhouse in a week and a bit. i can't wait!Delete
Yay dirt!!! It's about time.....right!!! I'm with Fern on mud pies....have you made any yet ?????
Great organization Dogs Saving Dogs, I will be checking this site out. You know soon, Bulldog Man and I will be getting another dog.....we may just find one through this site....you never know!!!!
Thanks for sharing this site. :-)
My thought, when anyone wants to find an animal for their home, homestead, farm or ranch they should always go to those organizations which help rescue animals.
Sending hugs and love to my favorite two family members.
hey there Sweet Sandy/Brat Angel - no mud pies but i finally started some seeds today - woohoo! and yes - check out the site as they are doing wonderful work that i know you will appreciate! and i am in full agreement with you - i wish we would outlaw puppy/animal mills and farms and take care of the animals that are already looking for homes!Delete
you know how much we love all of you back and consider you guys family, too! much love, as always! xoxox
