Magnetism is a fundamental force that is essential for life on Earth. PEMF uses pulsing electromagnetic fields to jumpstart and accelerate normal biological cellular reactions.

Very simply, cells contain electrically charged particles called ions that govern all cellular processes. When the body is stressed by illness, competition, environmental factors or age, the cellular membrane that conducts the essential ions in to and out of the cell becomes comprised and is unable to efficiently do its job of managing the transport of these ions. When the PEMF generated by the Respond Systems bed penetrates the body, a magnetic field in motion is created that immediately and positively directly impacts these ions and membrane potential to stimulate them into action. The result is an increase in cellular communication and circulation, a decrease in inflammation and pain and a resulting acceleration of healing.

·  In a mixing bowl combine all ingredients and form dough into a ball

·  Roll out dough in between two sheets of parchment paper*

·  Gently use your desired cookie cutters to cut and lift cookies into ideal shape**

·  Transfer to a lined baking sheet

·  Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cookies are hard

The Hairy Kids Sunroom

The Sunroom is complete!   Just waiting on glass for the winter window frames, and then we'll switch to screens in the summer.  While developing The Hairy Kids Inn, we aimed to create a sanctuary feel, and tried to think of everything for your hairy kid, from a fun activity park, to a ramp to accommodate older dogs, and hide away places to sleep, to comfy places to lounge in the sun and watch outside. The sunroom is a place where owners can relax and watch thier dogs play in the activity park while checking out the inn.  We built a dog door entrance from the deck so our hairy kid guests are free to lounge in the sunroom at anytime, and they also have access from the lounge area that we open up in the house while I am in the kitchen. 

The Hairy Kids Inn is Open for Business!

The Hairy Kids Inn is officially open for business, and we just finished a successful Open House weekend!  We are thankful to have been blessed with such lovely weather, and a consistent flow of visitors for 2 days.  In this post I'd like to thank all that contributed, and share some pictures from the open house, along with a little background on our journey. 

The Hairy Kids Inn was inspired while helping my friend Shirley of Woodleigh Ranch.  Also, earlier in my career I had a fun part time job working at an animal hospital, and we adopted our first “Hairy Kid” from a client of the animal hospital.  Dogs have always been part of our lives from adopting, to finding new homes, to picking up lost or stray dogs on the road, or intercepting one before going to the humane society.  We have owned several canines of which we provided forever homes, over our 30 year marriage.  

Paul and I also owned a successful Bed & Breakfast several years ago.   Then life changed after nursing for 25 years, and The Hairy Kids Inn seemed like the perfect opportunity to embark upon.  My husband Paul embraced the idea, and since April, the planning, studying and creating has resulted in what you are seeing at the Inn today.

The boutique inn will accommodate a maximum of four dogs.  Each will be provided complete, focused and structured attention from intellectual stimulation, exercise, play, TLC and relaxation.   The Inn is also a sanctuary where the owners can relax with their dogs, and enjoy a peaceful setting.

We tried to think of everything for your hairy kid, from hide away sleep places to a fun activity park, a ramp to accommodate older dogs, a comfy window seat for watching outside, a heated fire place, and a therapy bed for arthritic dogs ...

A mountain of gratitude to my Husband Paul, the architect of all the custom furniture, the whimsical dog house, and the activity park for hairy kids, and their owners to relax and explore. He worked tirelessly, enthusiastically, and late nights to finish this amazing project.


We are so grateful to all who helped us create what you see!

Meet Lilly!


Hi!  My name is Lilly and I am the resident dog here at The Hairy Kids Inn. As you can see from my beautiful gold fur, I am a Golden Retriever!  I am 6 years old now, but I moved in with my parents when I was just a puppy!  I absolutely LOVE people, especially kids. I am super playful and love to run, thankfully my parents have a huge yard for me to run and play in, and I always know I am safe because of the awesome fence they put in!  When I am not running around in the yard, I love to de-stuff all my toys and get the squeaky parts.  I love to chase squirrels too, but they're always too fast for me, which is probably a good thing!  I try really hard to be a good girl so I can get some apples, they are my favorite treat!  I can't wait to meet you and your parents when you come stay at our Inn!
