Introducing our newest elder gentleman [I'm not sure 'gentleman' is the right word!]. We have named him Stink Cartright after I was referring to him for weeks as Stinkin' Cute Short Guy. His former owner loved him and called him Foster but on arrival, well, these things evolve. I always think of names as a new chapter for an animal...sometimes the old name sticks, sometimes not. No matter his name, he was loved there and is loved now. He is what they call a dwarf mini and is only 30". He comes with his own harness and used to pull a little wagon so i hope to learn this so he can carry flowers out to our elder friends. He is truly a Stink! What he lacks in size he makes up for in vim and vigor. He used to live with a Belgian draft so is no stranger to bigger guys. I just love him and I hope to have him out walking soon now that the ice is gone. He needs some handling but is really fun.
Blessing of our Lovey Mobile and animals
APRIL 1 Saturday 12:00 - 1:30 at The Bremen Library

We are excited to announce that we will be having a blessing of our new Lovey Mobile, along with Harry the llama and myself. Pastor Char Corbet is someone who has volunteered her time to Apifera and she will give the blessing. We will be doing this in the lot at The Bremen Public Library on route 32. I hope to have one or two of the ponies, and I think Lumpy too. I will have some of my books there for sale. We want to spread the word about our non profit work, and also remind people that Mrs. Dunn is a writer and author sharing stories.

Lovey is a sweet little traveling healing hut. It is an evolving project. I envision doing pop up book shops with Harry or another animal along for the ride. Perhaps readings, puppet shows...and one on one healing sessions with a person and animal. Stay tuned as Lovey and friends evolves.
The new arrivals in the elder cat suite are wonderful, as is The Rabbit [no name yet]. Thank you to everyone that partook and sent new items from our Amazon Wish List to help give a spring spruce up for the cat suite. the rug is so wonderful, the room is so homey I love being in it. We are caring for eight elders right now and they are each so special. Four new arrivals were from an elder woman who had to go to a home-such a sad thing but it is a recurring episode. I hope she can find out from someone they are loved and safe.
Lumpy the pug continues to bond with his elder friends. Last week, he played his first hand of cards!
