Welcome to Cranky Puppy Farm!

This blog belongs to two Gen X-er's smackdab in downtown Kansas City where we've been renovating and decorating two old Victorians built in the 1890's. Our life is filled with 3 demanding Pomeranians (1 of them cranky, of course), honking cars, noisy neighbors and the hustle and bustle of city life but we dream of the day when we can move to our 40-acre farm and hear nothing but the wind and the cows next door. Until then, we're chronicling our triumphs and mishaps here as we try to garden and preserve on 2 city lots, raise chickens, and learn all those things we should have learned from our grandparents. Welcome to our world - we hope you'll stay awhile!

Goodbye to Finnegan the Great

Saturday, March 11, 2017


Finnegan the Great, Protector of our Realm,
left us this afternoon surrounded by his family who had loved him for almost 14 years.


We will never again get to cuddle with him or feel his sweet kisses. 
No more wake-up 5 a.m. calls from him so that he could go out and make sure there were no miscreants in the yard.


The sofa will be too big now without him in his spot at the end of my feet.


Who will tell us when it is time to go to bed?
Who will protect us from the big, bad world now that he is gone?


My heart is utterly broken.

Finnegan the Great - March 11, 2017
Goodbye, sweet baby.
