For the love of an old dog… our nightmare is soon to be over.

Last week I picked up a check to cover the balance of what’s needed to save our home. The couple who did this wish to remain anonymous. The only reason they would give is they wanted to repay the kindness for the wonderful dog they adopted from us several years ago.

We are at a loss for words. The couple want only for us to be happy and all our lives to be better again. I pray we can continue to live as to deserve such kindness.

For the love of an old dog.

As I write this we have 67 hours left for our Indiegogo Campaign to raise funds. We’re amazingly over $17k, which is nearly halfway to the goal of what’s needed to rectify things with the company that holds our mortgage, Ocwen. Having 67 hours left on Indiegogo does not mean we will stop our fund-raising! The court gave us more time to be in our home and to “do whatever we’re going to do” – meaning short sale in their minds – not so in ours. (It’s just a few months.) Our goal is to stay in our home. After the Indiegogo deadline hits on Sunday, we will still offer our great deals on Pet Sitting and Photography Packages. We will have various items listed to auction on Ebay. We are open to suggestions.

The neat thing about the Indiegogo Campaign is the ability to be able to offer “Perks”. We’ve got serious ones and some not-so-serious ones. I want to show some of those…

Gertie is our Sphynx kitty who came to us via Craigs List a few years ago when her family could no longer tolerate her oddness. We’re her third and FINAL home! We adore all that oddness. She offered up special naked kisses.

We also had some Canine Cookie Parties. This is one the big girls enjoyed. We will get a little dog party on video soon!

A popular perk has been the Cowgirl Belly Rub. The cowgirl is Eva our 7 year old Australian Cattledog. They’re also known as Blue Heelers and they are just a bit intense.

We’ve been completely overwhelmed by the amount of love and support shown to us during what is the most trying time in our lives. I would not wish this type of stress upon my worst enemy. Tears have been flowing on a regular basis. Doubt surfaces from time to time but we must remain steadfast in our faith. Our “kids” depend on us to keep them safe.

“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.


Jon Katz’s blog allows us into a childhood memory in reflection of what Dr. King means to all of us. I hope he is looking down on us, proud of the progress we’ve made but knowing we still have a long way to go. Peace & Love.
