I'm so glad you are home! I miss your blogging when you are away! What a fantastic way to spend your birthday! And OMG, what a sweet, darling little find! That dog is darling! What an expressive little face. I love his nose.

Happy Birthday, Katie! It sounds like you had the most special 50th birthday...and then you came home and got another sweet little gift. Peanut looks so cute, matted fur and all:> Best wishes to you for a wonderful year... and welcome to the semi-centarian club!

Laura Miller

if I'd of known it was your BDay I would have wished you Happy when I stopped by your vendor booth. I am new to all of this and just getting to know people and their art, but I have been visiting your blog ( I really like your style) and recognized your face as someone I knew when I saw you at Art and Soul. Happiness upon you for saving that little doggie. All of our 4 leggers are rescues, they're the best.

Happy B-day, Katie! I turn 50 next year so ha ha...you're 4 months older than me!

Bless your heart for giving Peanut a new home. I think it was meant to be. What a sweet dog!!

Glad you made it home safe and what a little cutie you have found. He is lucky to have you taking such good care of him. It was wonderful to room with you! Wishing you peace and sleep!

OH Mama Of Peanut (M.O.P.) I am so happy that you found the wet matted ball of dog and brought him home for keeps. I see a long and happy future for you both in my shiny crystal ball. Who needs SEattle when you have Peanut? No one. That's who!
Loved reading about you, bearer of kimonos, over on Judy's blog. Happy 50th beautiful.

Judy Wise

Peanut must have known about your heart of gold - I can just see him ruffling up his hair and then throwing himself in front of your car. He's a lucky boy to find such a home as yours. Much love to all of you there.


Happy Birthday Katie!!! I think you got the most perfect little birthday gift in that peanut - he's ADORABLE!

karen Cole

Happy 50 years YOUNG, Katie!!!

I would say that being at Art and Soul with dear friends and creating together, would be an ideal way to celebrate just about anything.

Peanut, looks like a wonderful birthday present, as well. Soooo adorable. I'd like to see a cleaned up version.

Big XOXOX to you... dear one!

Michael deMeng

Hey der,

Belated Happy Birthday, Katie! What a big heart you and your hubby have. It was terrific of you to take in this poor little DARLING doggie.


Happy, Happy Birthday, Katie! Wow, your natal day is so close to Nina's...

Hope to see you at Artfest again,
