Hello from all of us at Kennedy's Funny Farm....I'm Courtney and I'll be your tour guide along all of our wild adventures and blog posts! My husband and I have 2 cats, 8 dogs and 13 miniature donkeys. You'll get to know the "players" as the blog proceeds, so sit back, relax and enjoy!!

Your patience is appreciated while I travel the "Learning Curve" in the world of blogging...our first several posts might be pretty sketchy and experimental, but hang in'll get better - I promise! Many thanks to our blogging friends, Brutus and Michelle, for inspiring us to blog too!

For our first official post, I'm "borrowing" a chapter from the Kennedy Dog Walking Chronicles, written by my very good friend and employer Teresa. She is owned by two wonderful cats, but borrows a few of my dogs on a regular basis for hikes in the beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area (in NE Ohio). This post features Sadie Lou, a 5-year old, liver & white spotted rescued Brittany and her "brother" Tazz, also a 5-year old, liver & white roan rescued Brittany - with a tail! So, on with the blog!

Rules of Conduct in the Metro Parks

First, and most IMPORTANT: secure the seatbelt before leaving the driveway! Safety is imperative!

Second: pay close attention to nature – there is a myriad of creatures to be seen.

Third: take advantage of the numerous spas along the trails.

Fourth: Remember to pace yourself – take breaks.

Fifth: There are ALWAYS puppy treats at the end of the trail!


  1. Haha! You did it! So tell, me - where did you find those extra 4 hours in the day??? You'll find it's quite addicting....

  14. Welcome to the blogging world! I promise you'll love it and become totally and completely addicted! I actually have four blogs going at once right now. One for my Siberian Husky Storm, one for my Beagle/Mountain Cur Jackal, one for my Boer goat dog Jasmine and one about farm life in general (lots of pictures of my chickens and stuff). I can't wait to learn more about your critters, especially the donkeys (I've ridden horses since I was five, but am currently without one, but shopping right now yay!). Once again welcome!

  17. Hi there! Found my way here through Brutus the Frenchie. Nice to know there are treats at the end! :)

  18. Hello, I'm Oskar. I'm a miniature schnauzer with my own blog too. I stopped by cause Brutus recommended you!

    You made a great first post. I'm gonna follow you so I can see more.

    Stop by my blog & say hi sometime!

  19. Wow! Have you got a LOT of posts ALREADY! Our friend, Brutus, also told us to sniff you out, and since we here at Corgi Country also have equine type friends, and Mom wants a little burro, or donkey as a companion animal for her old horse, she let us lead her on over here. You all live a LONG way away from California, but the country around your place looks like a LOT of fun to explore! Have fun!
