is Mable, the Basset Hound, doing her world famous "trick".
It is the only trick she knows, but she does it quite well,
don't you think? Pretty impressive for having such a long

We did home testing of her blood glucose levels using the home test meters intended for humans. She got two insulin shots a day and ate homemade "Mable Loaf" for her meals.

year of quality life before he was taken from us by cancer.
Purknz loved his big brother Woodpyle very much and was very effected by his passing. Purknz has a need to be around us all the time, which
can make working difficult, but we manage to work around

extensive nerve damage. I nursed him at home and he has made
a full recovery, without even so much as a limp.
Katia "found" our barn on a very cold
day in January of 2004. I amnot quite sure how old she
is, but she was some where between a kitten and a cat when

and live rock as well as fish).
It is my attempt to create a perfect little ecosystem.
I used to raise LaMancha Dairy Goats.
My main goat focus at Fias Co
Farm was to raise healthy, friendly goats as family milk producers,
pets and companions. I produced all my own dairy
products. After the break up of my first marriage, I had to leave my farm.
I currently live in Michigan with my new husband and two cats: Tazio & Lily.
