Flagstaff is burning :(

We left just a month ago and Flagstaff has been hit with three big fires this weekend. We can see the plume from the backyard of our new home, 100 miles south. From the massive snowfalls of this past winter to devistating fires....pretty weird year.

I hope everyone will be OK up there...I've heard from some rescue friends and they have evacuated both animal shelters, Coconino Humane and Second Chance Center for Animals and moving the homeless animals to the fairgrounds...not sure how that will work out and I'm rather sad I'm not there to help in some small way.

If you were ever thinking about adopting a pet in Flagstaff, AZ now would be a GREAT time. Or contact either of these organizations and see how you can help.

Fires are always a threat in the summer months, living in the middle of the largest Ponderosa pine forest on the continent....but it's never easy to watch......especially from afar.

Be safe friends.

Movin' On

After almost 5 years living at the top of Arizona, we've decided to move down the hill a little for Tom's health and more room for the dogs, of course. We've had a rough couple of months with Tom ending up in the ICU over the holidays with a pneumonia that went into his heart.

We've found the most adorable rancher on 2.5 fenced acres, just outside of Prescott, AZ on county land. Let the barking commence! We are SO excited for this new adventure and are moving within the month. I will have lots of room for my sewing business and hope to expand in the 2nd half of 2010.

Jack is STILL with us...almost 2 years in foster care and most of them here with me. He did spend some time in Las Vegas, but was sadly returned. We NEED to find this boy a nice home. Monti keeps biting him :(
So medical bills, moving, caring for 7 dogs and two ancient cats and working on my Spoiled Bratzwear stuff doesn't allow me much time to blog. I'll try to be better at it because I really do enjoy it. I can't believe it's been 6 months since my last entry.............
