To Our Slumber Party!

Where we are warm and comfy, settled with our snacks, and strewn about for a long chat! Come on in and get acquainted; we're always happy to make room for one more!


This is for everyone who insisted that I be on my own page! ;)
I am married to my best friend! :) We have had 3 children, and two grandsons together.
Our home is in Northern California, in the woods.
We have 5 dogs currently; all rescues. Three dogs, and two "on-site" granddogs!:
Gil is a wonderful dog who everyone loves on sight;
Domino ~ we have labled his breed as: Happy!;
Boomer, one of our granddogs, is 7 lbs. of joyful companionship;
Jet, our other granddog, was an unexpected addition that we've been thankful for since;
Tango (Redwood Forest's Sunrise Tango Dancer) ~ is our latest addition; he's extremely intelligent.
Cats: All rescues, or kittens of rescues:
Pure White (blue eyed, yellow eyed, green eyed, and bi-eyed): Boaris; Pinky; Snowball; Daisy; and Frosty.
Pure Gray: Sluggo the Bear.
Black & White ~ Nefertiti Noelle.
Gray and White: Bubbles
Siamese: Ananda ~ A dilute flame point stray who showed up in our yard on a rainy day before my birthday.
Orange Tabbies: Ananda's daughter, Mauli.
Other: Ananda's other 2 children, spotted dd, Okalani; and son who looks just like her, Keanu, plus,
our latest addition, a feral kitty we are taming that we named, Big Mamou. He's a large white boy
with spots, & spots in the spots.
Kitty Campers: In 2011 we rescued a group of cats who had been abandoned at a home in the country. When
they were about to demolish the buildings we trapped the skittish one's that we'd been feeding,
and put them in a special run we bought for them. We added a floor to ceiling cat tree-play center, houses, toys,
dishes, litter, and let them settle in until they could be homed. There were a baker's dozen, not
counting 2 litters of new kittens that barely missed the wrecking ball from the ceiling hole they were in.
All of the kittens, and 6 adults, have found homes. Now we just have 6 waiting for forever homes, & 1 who
probably can't be placed. They are very nice looking 'art' cats who are quite tame, and affectionate. :)
Other family members:
Goats: Nubian-Alpine cross, Penelope; and Nigerian Dwarves: Buckley, & O'Neill!
Hens: Buff Orppingtons; Buff Rocks; Black Australorps; Golden Laced Wyandotte; 1 very senior Ameraucanas;
a Light Brahma; Red Stars; a Partridge Rock, with Sweetheart the Partridge Rock rooster; a Speckled Sussex,
and Ferdinand, the Blue Andalusian rooster!
Birds, house:
Harpo C. FineFeather, a light red canary that I believe has the same bloodline that my boy TwitterBug did.
He's the color of a light Cheeto, with yellow and clear mixed in. He is unashamedly joyful, with a varied
song which he loves to sing. He's intelligent, and good company. :)
Some things that I've done with animals are: work at the zoo; dog training for many years; rescue work with
the pounds, and anti-fighting task force; raised an African lion at home; bred Lori's etc.
We rescued reptiles, and birds, for many years: tortoises to snapping turtles, finches to macaws, &
have been involved with owl rescues, and rehab.
For physical activity I have spent time trick riding (horses), doing martial arts and gymnastics, swimming,
walking long distances, and doing yoga.
I love to read, fish, listen to music, sing, cook, bird watch, take photos, craft, garden, & stay at a lake house.
We have a certified organic farm/ranch that grows food, heirloom seeds, and flower bulbs,
and I spend time making jewelry, working on websites, & collecting stamps, produce stickers, miniatures, tokens, etc.

My dh (Jason) and I (Stacey) have been married since May of 1999, and live in Western Kentucky
I work in a small office as an administrative assistant to several bosses and as a financial assistant.
We have several dogs:
Chicory is the youngest dog I've ever adopted. She was a mere 19 months when I got her and was born
in October of 2007. She's a black and silver Afghan hound, still full of puppy antics, and very affectionate;
Sammy, a red fawn greyhound, is not a retired racer but you'd never know it when you see him run. His
exact birthday is a mystery, but he was born around the middle of 1999. He's been with me since March 2005;
Sprocket, a JRT, was born in March of 2001. He is very close to Jason; their relationship is a special one, and;
Dixie, a JRT, was born on September 5th, 2002. She had surgery 10-30-09 to remove her right front leg due to cancer.
She hasn't slowed down a bit! She does what she wants to do and goes where she wants to go.
Since adopting my greyhounds, Iíve become active in a new adoption group which serves my immediate tri-state area
(KY, IL, IN). It'ís a chapter of the nation-wide group, Greyhound Pets of America. You can check it out by clicking Here.
My cats are:
Sydney and Olivia, born March 2003. They were adopted together as they had already been together many
years in a hoarding situation before being rescued by the Humane Society.
I also have a 35-gallon aquarium of freshwater tropical fish, and;
Shimmer, pale yellow parakeet. I got Shimmer and her companion, who has since passed away,
from a family who were moving and could not take them.


(Karen, Kari...depends on who's talking to me) :-)
My darling, adorable husband and I live in sunny Southern California near the beaches.
It just keeps getting better, the longer we're married! I met him when I was 14 years old, and married when I was
18 and he was 20.
I play the flute and sing alto in our church choir; music is a very important part of my life, for as long as I can
recall. I love a wide variety of music, from classical (Mozart and Bach are my favorites) to Country, to Rock, and
of course, Christian music. Music is a huge part of my expression of who I am.
I also love to read and watch movies.
Human children ~ We have three wonderful sons, Rob (born in 1979), Andrew(1981), and Phillip(1987). We gained
our first darling daughter-in-love when Rob married Marikka on July 21st, 2001. We are very excited about this
addition to our family, and crazy about her, she has been a part of our lives since they were in high school &
is everything we could ever have wished for and prayed for in a wife for our son.
She teaches 3rd grade and I love to work in her classroom one day a week.
Rob does web design, Andrew is an electrician, and Phillip is our caboose who loves sports,
is an excellent student, and enjoys a very active social life! We feel very blessed indeed!!

MN in November of 2002.
My dh, Dan is a wetland specialist. We were married in the fall of 1986 (one of our favorite
times of the year) and we have three beautiful girls.
They are:
Emily, born in 1992,
Shelby, born in 1996, and
Gabrielle, born in 2000. She actually shares my dad's birthday...made all the more special because
I was pregnant with her when my dad had to have a major heart by-pass surgery.
Sally is the newest 4-legged member of our household. She becomes dearer to us each day.
She was born April 14, 2009. Her coat is orange freckled on white. She is grace and beauty.
We also have 4 fancy goldfish. I think we may have to find a new home for the white koi as it is quickly outgrowing
the fish tank. It's a shame, too, 'cause it's one of my favorites. It really interacts with us and is quite
the begger for food!


My husband, Ben, and I live just south of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
I'm a Director of Religious Education at a Catholic Church and he is currently a trucker, but is still
looking for his career! I'm also a part time dog training instructor.
We have two dogs:
Sammie, our first, is a Border Collie/mystery mix that we got from the Hillside SPCA when he was
one year old;

I enjoy training and fun activities with both of them.


I live in Ontario in Canada. Single, with no (human) kids.
I got my first dog in 1993 but she died in an accident at the age of 3.
Then Taxi (as in yellow cab), now gone as well.
My current dog is:
Black lab Sarah.
Together we are working on being couch potatoes.

I live in Nashville, Tennessee with my 3 Miniature Schnauzers and an ever-changing assortment
of foster Schnauzers, waiting to find homes through a Schnauzer Rescue group.
My "kids", who are all rescues, are:
Rockefeller, black male, my agility dog and mischievous imp; and,
Raoudi, salt-and-pepper male, who is doing great in agility, and who I'm considering putting into
Pet Therapy classes.
My first Schnauzer, the late, great Syd, ran into my downtown office at age 8. Because of him I got
interested in rescue. We had 9 wonderful years together before he went to Rainbow Bridge just weeks
shy of his 17th birthday.
The kids and my fixer-upper house keep me busy, but I love to read, write funny stories about the dogs,
and do things outdoors when I have time.
If you are curious, want to adopt, or make a donation, I'm with Schnauzer Love Rescue:
