Profile: Hi! I live in Kentucky and have always had a variety of animals in my life since the day I was born. I've had cats, guinea pigs, hamsters, salamanders, fish, rabbits, gerbils, rats, turtles, parrots, parakeets, a deer, cows, pony, goats, snakes, and of course, dogs! Currently, I live with five dogs, a snake, and 14 cats (was 15 until 3/7/11 when one of my babies died unexpectedly). I love every one of them and their unique personalities and my soul would simply die without their furry little selves around!

KC Bloo was found as a stray in May of 2005. He was just a happy go lucky little puppy who happened to run out in front of my car in rush hour traffic. I had lost my dog of 18 years, Toby, three years earlier, and my husband was against another dog because we were still deeply grieving Toby. Still, here was this beautiful puppy from no where that was plopped right in front of me. I stopped, scooped him up and brought him home. His puppy pic is the same evening he came to live with us. No one ever looked for him (thankfully) and even though my husband was not thrilled when I came in the door and said I found something, by the weekend, he was hooked. KC is SUPER SMART (too smart) and loves to go to the farm (or anywhere) with my husband. He was a blessing, whether we were ready for it or not.View Profile
Michael found me at the end of the summer of 2010. He was a stray that I wasn't ready for (had just lost my Cockapoo, Bandit. But, after not being able to find where Michael came from (no collar, no microchip, no one searching), I am SO glad they didn't. Michael is the sweetest, HAPPIEST, dog in the world.View Profile
Puppy Girl has been with us since Oct 2000. One morning as I got on the interstate to go to work, there she was curled up asleep under the street lamp next to the exit, like she was waiting for someone. That afternoon when I came home, she was walking along the interstate near the exit. It killed me to see this! It took about a month or so seeing her like that, and taking food and leaving it every night, before we were able to catch her. It took four of us to finally get her in a crate and thankfully, I had an empty pen to put her in at home. One of the people that helped us catch her was the director of the Humane Society. If they took her, they were going to immediately put her down because they said she was too aggressive (I will say she is the only dog in my entire life that has scared the dickens out of me). So my husband and I took her home to see what would happen. It's true, she's aggressive, but only with other people. My husband and I are the only people she trusts and we can do anything with her. I think she had some bad experiences and was never socialized properly. She was already spayed so my guess is she probably belonged to a truck driver and either she got out or they put her out. She's getting old and gray and slow now but she's still my Puppy Girl.View Profile
Jasper came to live with us in December 2009. He appeared on the scene in November 09 starved, scared, and untouchable. His tail was constantly tucked, you could see every bone he had, and if you blinked he would run. After much coaxing with burger, and ham, and smoked pork, and not moving a muscle so he could feel safe to come closer, he FINALLY one cold morning let me touch him. It was still a struggle to catch him because he would disappear for days but when I saw the neighbors throw things at him to make him get out of their yard, and he ran into the road and was nearly hit by a car in front of my eyes, we had to find a way. My husband was able to catch one day while I was at work and put him a pen. Jasper went nuts to the point we were afraid he was going to injure himself or have a heart attack so we let him out. We had a much larger pen for KC Bloo so we decided to put KC in the smaller one and catch Jasper and try him in the larger pen. He still wasn't happy but he was a bit calmer. I don't know where Jasper came from, or what terrible things he had to endure, but today he is a beautiful big gentle strong long legged boy who smiles all the time.View Profile
