Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

My Furry Kids!


I thought it was time for you to meet some of the family. Rudy, on the left has been living with us for about seven years. We're not sure what his ancestors were, the vet thinks he's a long haired chihuahua and maybe something else. He was found wandering the streets in a dangerous part of town. He doesn't like most males, in fact he barked at the mister for quite a few years. Now they sit in the recliner together and watch macho stuff like football games. Betsy, the little black shitzu mix, was another rescue. (Yes, I know she needs braces!) But she's not getting senior pictures, so the mister says no. She's been a member of the family for about eleven years. She had been a Christmas puppy that was neglected because the owner didn't really want a puppy for Christmas. When we got her she was skinny, had sores all over her, hair matted, and a broken rib. Now they both live the good life here in Mimi's Cottage.

What cute babies; it's hard to believe they'd ever been unloved. They look like they are perfectly contented now, how lucky to have earned the love of those two.

Those furry family members are darling. There is a lady down the street from me, her and her hubby take rescue dogs too. I forget what there called, but she said they are the type of dogs that the royalty in England had. I love that toddler chair in the post below, I can't wait to see what you do with it. Red sounds perfect!
