I'm excited to share my new online shop with you! I have added cotton/and outdoor pillows, linen-inspired luxury pillows, a series of animal wisdoms of The Misfits on maple wood frames, papers, fabrics and of course my art, prints, cards and books. The old Etsy shop will eventually be deleted and I will not be adding anything new to it, so please book mark the new shop. I am excited to add more products and pillows. And of course, soon the new White Dog memoir will be pre selling, hopefully in fall.

It has been a busy, busy summer! 
  • Took on two very old and very grumpy brother cats we call The Grumpiest Old Men. Their elder owner could not care for them after going in a home
  • The One Eyed Blind Pug II, aka Hughie, turned 13
  • We brought home another elder llama, Lucy, to be buddies with old Luna.
  • Sadly, Lucy lost her baby cria who was only one month old. We had planned to take her. Lucy was bred at her elder age and I feel very sad this was done to her, but she is content now. We still plan to find another young female llama to partake in our therapy work and to Birdie On!
  • Uno the pig has come back to his family, including his mother Eleanor. He is very big, huge, Jackie Gleason style, we will work on that
  • The final barn addition begins in a week
  • The hay is in!
  • The garden is incredible this year!
  • We have had several new elder homes come to visit
  • A hospice choir came to sing to all the old animals
Donations feed and care for the elders
Lucy is almost 20. She was bred at this much too old age and lost her cria.

A pig returns to his home
Uno is the son of Eleanor and Earnest and was born in Oregon four days before we were set to leave on our 6 day journey to Maine. We had not 'planned' to keep breeding any animals, but Earnest found a way to have a night of hot passionate love making with Eleanor, and four piglets popped out one day. Uno and his brother Wee Willie went to live in Bucksport once we landed in Maine, with a friend and board member. But last spring, WIllie died unexpectedly and Uno was alone, and his owner's life situation was changing making her time for Uno short. She felt he was depressed. I thought she might be exaggerating, but when I drove up to see him, I agreed. He was clearly sad. And may I say, he is huge. So Uno is back with his bossy mother Eleanor, and Little Lonely. He is a sheer delight, loves hose baths and to stand by me wherever I am, all 350# of him. I told him we will get some weight off him too, but not to worry about it because we love every pound of him.

Arlo had a trial run at the farm with a visit with some elders who came down from Camden, he did great and I continue to train him on ground manners and more. Opie has been out and about too visiting elder friends. We have two new elder homes scheduled for the month which is great-word is getting out!
