Down the Rabbit Hole


I find myself in Wonderland. Down the rabbit hole we go,


where crazy people undertake a kennel remodel with dogs still in residence.


Shuffling dogs from one place to another to accomplish in one week what would take mere mortals at least four.


“I’m not crazy. My reality is just different from yours.” ~ Cheshire Cat

Simultaneously making good on a “Picnic in the Garden” auction item –


“It’s always tea time.” ~ The Mad Hatter


for five human guests and their five canine companions…and expecting everyone to get along?

Alice: “This is impossible.”
The Mad Hatter: “Only if you believe it is.”


Then, just for good measure – add in a Volunteer Appreciation Picnic for 100 and their dogs.


The Mad Hatter: “Have I gone mad?”
Alice: “I believe so. You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. The best people are.”


We all go a little mad sometimes.
The good news: one week of chaos, and it will all be done!


“Begin at the beginning… and go on till you come to the end: then stop.” ~Lewis Carroll, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland

Wish us luck!

  1. Best of luck. That sort of chaos is exhausting. I can’t wait to see the finished construction. Meanwhile, I love your Alice in Wonderland quotes. They work beautifully with this post, alongside all those adorable pooches and their loving companions.

  2. “Birds of a feather flock together”

    Happy to be in the Homeward Bound flock! Great post, 😀

  3. A wonderful project! I hope your one week of chaos goes smoothly and passes quickly and then you have many more years of bringing such happiness! 🙂
