Hey Pals,

Thank you to everyone for your kind words & messages.  We don't know how we would get through things without all of you beside us.  Butchy had another seizure last night and is very very tired today.  But the tiredness is normal for him for a whole day after having a seizure.  Hopefully Butchy will be more himself tomorrow.

We hope you can visit our good pal Gussie's blog today as he has posted the first item up for bid in his auction to help raise money for Butchy's medications.  They will be listing one item per day.  So please stop by to check out today's item.  Thank you so much Gussie!!

After we post some pond pictures, we will have photos of the first set of items we have for sale to go for Butchy's meds too.  So be sure to scroll below to view the items.

We took a few pond pictures yesterday to show you.  Things are starting to green up around here, but the ponds will look much better in about 3-4 weeks when the iris and waterlilies are blooming

The pond farther back in the photo is actually the largest pond and that is where the koi live.  Once the pampass grass and other grasses grow, they will stand about 8 feet above the back end of the pond.

Here is Koi Sylvester:

The yellow fish is Koi Sugar: (she is one of our large breeding females)

And here's me Katie!  Hmmmm, what is that buzzing sound we hear?  Mama said it was the humming birdies.

Ok, now for our items we need to sell.  This first item is actually an antique Fox Terrier Wheelie, probably made by Schuco in Germany.  Since this is one of the antiques we have to sell, it is not the price of our other items that we will have here.

Antique Wire Fox Terrier on Wheels, probably made by Schuco, 1940-50's  Price  $160.00 plus shipping
The head does swivel and the wheels turn.  Mama has completely professionally cleaned the furs and she will repair the broken nose stitching.
