back, would they recognize the property?"
My grandparents purchased our property from the son of the original owner. He had inherited the house from his father and lived there until entering a nursing home in 1930. My own dad was born in the house and after I was born, I lived with my parents in the carriage house here on the property. I guess you could say our roots go long and strong here. Due to rezoning and growth in the town our house is actually considered by many to be "endangered". The belief is that the house was built in 1840, although the original structure it was based on could actually be much older. I try to imagine myself living here with no electricity and heating by wood and taking those STEEP stairs in a long, full dress!

they had plans to attend and give the buttons out in honor of Boo's little brother Ace. Ace is a rescue that was struck by a car and has had 6 months of recovery. Yesterday he had to undergo more surgery and long story short...couldn't attend. The mama posted and said she would make more buttons available to people who really wanted one, but couldn't attend either...so the idea was born that anyone wanting a button could get one...or two...or however many they wanted, they can donate if they want to or even can. So, here's how to get your button(s)....
Go to www.milwaukeepugfest.com
Click on the "donate" button at top right
Put in your name and address. Be sure to also mark "donating to Button Fund". If you want more than one, just state how many.
Remember donating is voluntary!
