Throwback Thursday Love ❤️

Good morning! It’s #Throwbackthursday! I was looking through old photos of Halloween’s past and found this very special photo of Jacobs first best friend… his dog Tracker. Tracker was always a good sport and went along with any crazy 😜 dress up plan that Jacob and Jo came up with. She especially Loved Halloween 🎃 Probably all the treats and snacks that she got 😊 Dogs 🐶 are truly mans best friend!

Tracker was such a good girl 🐕 She loved dressing up and going out with us 😂 Here she is in one of her Halloween 🎃 costumes. I just love looking back on great memories! #throwbackthursday

Have a Great Throwback Thursday! And Happy Halloween 🎃 👻

Lost and Found!

We seem to find our share of animals in need 😇 And sometimes in the darndest places!

We don’t know how this little guy found his way into our boat… But he was definitely lost!

When I first saw him hiding in my boat I actually thought it was a baby opossum 😮But instead it was a cute baby kitten that was very scared & very hungry!

He wouldn’t eat solid food, but lapped up some half&half 😊

After getting something in its belly he became a little socialite, visiting each one of us and being so sweet. We decided we had to find someone who wanted this little baby! 

Almost immediately we had someone say they would love to take her. BUT, she had to talk to her grandkids and their parents…

This lovely lady called her kids about adopting this little kitten for her grandkids! GREAT NEWS! – They worked it out and took this little baby into their family 😊

I LOVE it when things work out with abandoned animals! This little baby kitten found a forever home! That’s a success story in my book! What was lost is found and all’s good in a little part of the world 😊

Have a Great Day!

A Happy Ending for Lil’ Bit’ | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

I think yesterday was a day for the books! Not only were we able to save that poor flea infested little puppy from almost certain death, we were blessed with the perfect couple to take her into their family and her new Forever Home 🏡.

You remember this flea infested little gal from yesterday’s blog. Well, she was adopted into the perfect family within 30 hours of my original contact.

So many people saw her on my blog yesterday that wanted to know if they could help. Several wanted to Adopt her too 😊 WOW! It makes me feel good about the world when so many offer their support for an abandoned dog.

An old friend called me about her (we were calling her Lil’ Bit’ at the time). As soon as I heard his voice and realized what the call was about, I was thrilled! He and his beautiful wife wanted to give this puppy a home 🏡. I couldn’t think of a better place for her to be!

What a great picture! Lil Bit’ got the perfect family and a Forever Home!

Sometimes things work out! We are going to miss this little gal 😊

She’s happy and headed home now 😊 Good luck with your new home Lil’ Bit. I’m anxious to hear what your name will be. I’ll update everyone when I hear.

I Love ❤️Dogs!

An Important Team Member has Quadruplets on Easter Sunday! | Carters Nursery, Pond & Patio | Jackson, TN

Filed under: General Blog Entry's | Tags: , , , , ,

When you run a small business, every team member counts! So you really feel it when one of the team is out for any reason. This week, a very important member of the Carters Nursery team has become a mother in a big way! She didn’t just have a baby – She had Quadruplets! And on Easter Sunday!

Our very own Miss Sassyfras (Sassy) has had 4 beautiful baby kittens! We figured she would be off work a few weeks, but she still performed her main duties as ‘head mouser’ by catching a mouse just 5 days after having Quadruplets!

We got Miss Sassyfras, aka: Sassy as an abandoned kitten some time back. She was injured and the vet couldn’t spay her at the time, so now she is a momma cat 🙂 After she recovers from giving birth for a little while we will take her to the vet and get her Spayed. She is Carters Nurseries “Head Mouser”.

What does it mean to “Spay” a cat? – During a spay, the reproductive organs (i.e. the ovaries and the uterus) are removed. In the US, the spay surgery is called an ovariohysterectomy. This means that the ovaries (ovario-) and the uterus (-hyster-) are removed (-ectomy).

We will have some beautiful Kittens for good homes soon 🙂 Their little eyes will open in a few days and then they really develop quickly! IF you want one of these little babies, please let us know by calling 731-424-2206, we will make sure you get to pick from the litter.

These little beauties haven’t opened their eyes yet. It normally takes 7-10 days for that to happen. As of now, they are fat, healthy & happy! They were born on Easter Sunday 4/1/2018.

Life is a beautiful thing! Little Miss Sassy is a great momma and loves her baby’s! We know that everyone else will too 🙂

Have a GREAT weekend!
