Found Dog: Franklin County Texas Kings Country at Deer Lake Cabins

The Dog Magnet strikes again! This young guy found me yesterday when I was working on a road  at Deer Lake Cabins Ranch Resort.


The link below will have contact info. and more info than the picture above, If you know who’s dog this is please let  me know! 

He is being loved, fed and shelter  DSCF2759 and he even has lots of new friends!  Even though he is happy to be safe, he is missing you so I hope we find the owner soon!


Bandit, the Corgi came back just a couple of days ago, so Three times now for him, and two for the St. Bernard Mix, I think they think I am their foster mom!

Unbelievable!!! Stray Dog Returns On the Anniversary of Shiner’s Death


Do Dogs have a 6 sense? 

February 3rd, I was walking with Shadow and Shylo and I noticed a Corgi stuck to Shylo like glue! I knew it had to be Bandit! P2030154 (Bandit was a stray dog we took in last winter when he showed up by our RV).   Shiner and Blue’s entryway into staying in the RV!

Did Bandit come back on this date because to pay his respects to Shiner?

  February 3rd  was the one year anniversary of Shiner’s death , the infamous Ranch Dog at Deer Lake Cabins. 5742_10201409628182751_2106262655_n 

We went over by Shiner’s grave and the dogs and I paid our respects: Shadow took it the hardest Sad smile           P2030169 

I  thought it was interesting that Bandit shows up on this date!


Last year The Corgi spent a few days with us before we found his owner. (You can read about it on my blog by putting Corgi in the search bar). Here is a photo I took of Bandit’s first reunion with his owner): Captured Videos[4]

and a funny video I posted when he was here last year. or  (click the link below):

To my surprise Bandit had a collar and a tag with a phone number! It was the greatest thing ever, to see the owners actually took the time to make sure someone could find them easier if Bandit went astray again!

 P2030144 Bandit seemed to feel right at home with the boys!  I told the owner that Bandit could just spend the day with us and he could get him after work if he wanted to. So the three dogs hung out and had a great time catching up! P2030151

Blue spent most of the day working with  Dave  DSCF1595, so he didn’t get to see Bandit for more than a few minutes before he was picked up, but at least they got to say hi!

I met the owner at the gate but before he left, Bandit whispered something in Shylo’s ear!  P2030152 I think he told him he would work on his next escape and he will see him soon!

Snowmen Texas Style

Snow in east Texas brings out the creativity in many who rarely get a chance to see the snow, let alone create master pieces! Keep reading to see how these master pieces became a part of my blog!

We had about 4 inches of perfect packing snow, the dogs were excited and couldn’t wait to get out to play! So outside we went… snow 2015 2 I took the dogs out for a walk and took some pictures of the winter wonderland at Deer Lake Cabins. snow 2015 21 We didn’t get very far and I heard a big cracking sound, seconds later a huge limb was on the ground. I knew it wasn’t safe to be outside with the dogs so we headed back to the safety of the RV.

I knew it was going to be a long day inside, so I  made snowmen and snowballs with bird seed and put them by the bird feeders. I figured it would be more entertaining than just watching them at the feeders! DSCF2462a081 When Dave came home (after he was done laughing at me), he suggested that I post my pictures snow 2015 23

When I got to their page, I started looking at other peoples photos and was amused by the snowmen, horses, dogs, turtles, bears and more! I decided to copy my favorite ones and post them on my facebook page so my family in WI could see these Texas Style snow creations!

We Found Another Dog!

Dave calls me and asks if wanted another dog… He found him while he was working on the new maintenance building. He goes on to say it weighs about 125 pounds and his name is Chance!  DSCF1607

Dave wasn’t kidding, he is a BIG Boy!DSCF1616

Shylo and Blue wanted to play with him but it was obvious,that that wasn’t going to work! Don’t get me wrong, Chance was a gentle giant, but Shadow would have gotten trampled in all the excitement! So he spent the day working with Dave.

Dave call the home again number about 3 hours before he brought Chance up here, DSCF1613 since nothing happened with that, I called the SPCA and gave them the rabies number, while I was on hold, they contacted the owner and got my permission for them to give him my number! It was that fast, however he was in Dallas and he needed to get a hold of his daughter to get the dog.

So after Dave was done working Chance came back up here, a couple hours had gone by and we were wondering if anyone was going to claim him since the guy called from a private number and the SPCA was now closed AND Monday was a holiday. If no one called for him, I don’t know what we would do. I could not imagine having this dog in the RV if he were the ONLY dog!

Last year when we found a Corgi, that was a different story! (a funny video of that can be seen here): 

We had to tie Chance up and then taking turns letting the dogs out, so we could keep Shadow safe.

Several hours went by since I talked to the person in Dallas, but FINALLY someone called!

Don’t worry, we fed him, kept him company and spoiled him rotten while he was with us!

Turns out Chance was also a resident of Kings Country Just like the Corgi, so maybe by Chance we will see him again! LOL

2015 Brings Great Beginnings!

2015 has already been thrilling beyond comprehension! My only daughter had her first baby!

I have spent several hours on Skype with my daughter while she was in the hospital giving birth. Then when they got home… then back in the hospital when Lucas’ body temperature dropped in the low 90’s, loss of weight and had a low white blood count.  He is now healthy again and back at home!

From over 1,000 miles away, I was in the hospital room with my daughter (On Skype, a FREE video call on your pc) during her labor. I sat on a shelf when she was wheeled away for her c-section and got to hear the updates when the doctors or nurses came in with news! I couldn’t wait for AJ to come and grab his Kindle (ME) and take it into the recovery room! It was an hour earlier than the doctors said, so I was thrilled!

I took the  pictures while we were Skyping!  (For those who don’t know what Skype is, you might want to Google it and check it out)!

 LJ H 12.png  (This is when  they held up my new Grandson and introduced him to his grandma in the box)

It was all so exciting and such a blessing to be there even if from afar! I have never really held him in my hands or met him face to face, but I already have about 100 pictures and 20 videos that I took while we were on Skype!

Here is a video that will at the very least will get you to crack a smile if not LOL…


a little photoshop to get a picture of me holding my grandson! lj4
