Goat Mountain is, well, it's a house on a mountain and I'd have some goats. I'd bring the dogs. Although they'd all suck at livestock guardians so I'd get a couple more. Anatolians probably. There would be a big old garden and a stack of wood outside the door that would magically replenish every season.
It's the place my husband and the boy get a panicked look about when I mention it. As if I'm about to haul ass up the mountain, leaving them behind. Which some days, seems like a not so bad option. But most of the time I like it here.
But, an option it isn't and for now I live in Northern VA, with the three dogs and the husband and the boy. Being a Jack of All Trades, Master of None type my creative output is all over the place. So here you will find all sorts of things I hope you'll like.
If you see something you like but you'd like it better another way, convo me, I'm flexible. The shop is a work in progress, it's sort of shabby, but I am working on it as I type. So please, check back, ok?
As for the tagline, well it's not after Rumplstiltsken, I mean does anyone notice the King was going to whack her and the Dad if she couldn't spin straw into gold. Then he was all 'Oh, I'll marry you now!' Yuck.
Rather it conveys the idea of turning the ordinary into something extraordinary. So that's a bit of my story, hope to see you around.
Ten percent of all profits are tithed to Big Paw Rescue http://search.petfinder.com/shelterSearch/shelterSearch.cgi?shelterid=OH685&preview=1 in addition to other small run dog rescues.
Working with and helping dogs across the nation is our life long passion. All three of our dog's are rescues and we look forward to being able to assist more dogs and the people who care for them as we grow.
Ever transported? Check out http://ruralshelterhelp.blogspot.com/ The realities of shelter dogs even as close as an hour out are much different than the ones here. Most rural shelters are understaffed and almost all still use gas to kill the dogs that can't find homes.
If you have a couple hours on the weekend you can save a dog's (often more than one) life simply by driving it from one transporter to the next. When a dog has five days in a shelter before being put down, a few hours of your time can make all the difference.
