Willow’s Paws & Claws Rescue Inaugural Event

March 29th, 2009 by Heidi

Thank you to everyone who came out (or bought raffle tickets) and supported Willow’s Paws & Claws Rescue at our inaugural event last night. We shared home-made, home-grown asparagus soup, hot chocolate and smores with 18 people, and raised over $170.

Considering we only decided to hold this event a few weeks ago and had done minimal advertising we are really pleased with our beginning.

We got quite a surprise when we went out to the barn this morning!

Aspen update

March 24th, 2009 by Heidi

I am always being asked how Aspen is doing and a proper update is long over due. It has just been so busy around here lately! He is doing well. The progress is slow so there isn’t often anything to ‘write home about’, but it is progress. Aspen has been getting better with me, but is still terribly afraid of Steve, to the point that if Steve tries to get him out of his crate or put a leash on him he pees.


Happy Birthday Willow

Willow is a year old today!


It’s Raining Cats

There has been a lot going on with the felines around here, and as I started writing this I realised that I hadn’t kept you posted on our barn cat visitors, so I should probably start there, before I introduce the new arrivals!


Successful Outing!

Wow, another non stop day. today was supposed to be all about chickens and increasing our flock. It didn’t quite work out that way though.


Free Tree!

A friend today told me about a great new program here in Ottawa to plant more trees and I just had to share it with you…..
