Thank you Kristin Davis

  • Orphaned Baby Elephants
    So nice to see that the babies finally have a prominent name attached to their plight. Please click the link (above) to view a page from the orphanage and at the bottom of the page is a link to a wonderful video Kristin made at the orphanage.

From Dame Daphne Sheldrick:

  • “Every person that buys ivory has killed an elephant and its dependent young and has caused immeasurable sorrow and suffering to many others.” Dr Dame Daphne Sheldrick MBE, MBS


  • ... from the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust where orphaned baby elephants are rescued.

Watercolors from the Nursery

  • Each month I receive a lovely watercolor depicting a scene from the nursery. We have printed many of them out and placed them in frames to decorate our home.


  • Sammy loved kittens, tutus & ballerinas. But mostly he loved us. He died a peaceful death as an old man and left us with broken hearts.

Our Old Man

  • Baby Bear died a peaceful death just before Christmas 2009. He was almost 17. Bear was a warrior. A brilliant feline. A blessing to our lives.

Hello Amy. May you have a wonderful 2012. Hard for me to believe 2011 is just about gone. Flew by.

Very very sorry about your sweet kitty.

Julie Marie

Oh Amy, I am so sad for you and Desi over Mr. Bubbles... I know so well the heartache you all are going through... and how very painful it is to let go... my kitties, Blackie, Pumpkin and TC are all in kittie Heaven and will welcome him when his time comes, and take him under their care... love to you all and prayers... xoxo Julie Marie

Amy Arnaz

*Deanna* And a very Happy New Year to you too! Regarding our sweet kitty, it is awful to watch him die a little more each day, but this is part of the beautiful DANCE we experienced with him. So grateful to him. xoxo Amy

*Julie Marie* Bubbles will be so happy when he arrives in Kitty Heaven. His favorite dog, Sammy, is also awaiting him there because Sammy loved cats! Hope you and Jack have a wonderful New Years Eve safe and sound at HOME. Sending love xoxo Amy

Julie Marie

Hi again Amy, I just stopped back to see if you left me a comment which you often do... I am glad to hear that his favorite dog Sammy will be awaiting him as well... thank you for the emails and as always, your support... Happy New Year to you and Desi, xoxo Julie Marie

Hello Amy,

Pets, like family and friends, enrich our lives. Along with that comes heartache. I'm sorry about your Mr. Bubbles.

May 2012 be a wonderful year for you and yours.


Jeanine Burkhardt

L*O*V*E to YOU and Sweet~Sweet "Mr. Bubbles"... He couldn't have had a better loving home and life... He gave me such JOY...

Amy Arnaz

*Jeanine* Our beautiful big boy is hanging on by a thread this morning. He stumbled out the front door and onto the grass for a while this morning and is now back inside but so weak he cannot eat... So odd to see him dwindle away when his mother and sister are still healthy and active. Wonder why he is leaving us so soon? Never in a million years did we think he would go this way and so soon. Broken hearts. Amy

Amy Arnaz

*Thank you Allen* And a wonderful 2012 to you and yours too! Amy


Hi Amy,

*Hello Liza* So glad you left a comment. Thank you! I appreciate your Happy New Year wishes and your comment about my poor kitty. I wish you had a blog so I could see what you are up to. All the best to you yours for a Happy 2012. Please stop by again! xoxo Amy


Sending you hugs
along with wishes
for a 2012 that is
joy-FULL. It is always
so hard to come to
the end of a journey
with a beloved pet;
you are all in my prayers.
What a sweet photo

PS: I've been telling my
daughter to read The Art
of Racing in the Rain for
two years and she finally
DID over the Christmas
break and loved it like I
knew that she would! It's
up there on her top ten
list of all books she's read : )

Long skirts

My little mother Libby

  • Hi Mom! I hope you have somehow figured out how to read my blog. I have a new, bionic knee that should last till I'm 80. Wish you were here so we could share everything with you. Miss you lots.... Wish you would have lived longer so you could see your beautiful granddaughters all grown up.
