“If they could see me now that little gang of mine, I’m eating fancy chow and drinking fancy wine. I’d like those stumble bums to see for a fact the kind of top drawer, first rate chums I attract.” ~Sweet Charity
Hello, sweet friend…I hope you had a wonderful week. Recently I met Mackenzie’s (our cat) previous owner and found out that MacKenzie is close to 20 years old! I had no idea…I’m wondering if I should change his name to Sylvester with the hope of another theatrical opportunity…that being said I thought I’d share a previous post about another one of our fabulous furry kids who just might be my real claim to fame. (Just kidding)

Hi, I hope you had a good week. I’ve had a fun, exciting & most definitely all consuming week. A wonderful community theatre here on the coast has been preparing for the production of The Wizard of Oz read more and opening night has arrived! my first time as a stage mom
This post will be a little rushed since more than likely as you read I will beind those curtains backstage with Cami. (Cheering her on for 12 performances)
That being said I can’t help reflect back to a time when this cute-furry child first arrived at our home in California.
A few of the neighborhood children had brought her over one Sunday afternoon all dirty and scruffy inquiring if she were one of our dogs.
I remember that day as if it were only yesterday.
I looked at the little doggie and replied “no she isn’t one of ours…(and without even a pause) however we would be more than happy to take her if there isn’t any luck finding her owner”
I felt my husband’s
shocked surprised look.
Perhaps in that moment I saw what a sweet spirit she had. Star quality
Before the day was over she was ours.
We named her Cami. She cleans up well
A Maltese mix. Tiny and mighty
sweet and smart
loving and devoted.
Who would have imagined six years later that a once scruffy homeless little abandoned dog on a Sunday afternoon…
would one day be making her big debut here on the beautiful Oregon coast portraying Toto a scruffy beloved farm dog.💕
Happy weekend sweet friends🏡
Here is a little clip as we are leaving home for debut.🚗
