Some of you know that I have been searching for a long time...trying to find some land where my dogs can run and play and live like they are meant to live...it is not easy finding a place like that...especially in expensive California.

Well, tonight Dave and I "obtained the keys" to our ranch property...it is 26 acres with the most gorgeous meadows, rock outcroppings and oak trees you have ever seen! There is a 100+ year old barn AND a real, but sealed, gold mine! hahahaha It is in a small town north of Sacramento.

We are naming the ranch after our fathers...Dave's dad was called "Gabby" and my dad's name was Jack...so, in their honor, we are calling our place "The Gabby Jack Ranch".

It will take some time to get all of the fencing up and to build a proper place for my dogs, but it is an excellent start! We are so happy!

We will be moving this weekend, so you won't hear much from me. My computer will be in transit and I am not sure if the Gabby Jack Ranch is equipped with high speed internet access!

So, happy holidays to you all...I'll be in touch when I am able! YeeeHawww!

Congrats Jac......can you use some ranch hands?? :wink:

Jac could operate it like a dude ranch. We could come and bring our doodles for vacation out to the wild west!

Congratulations, Jac! It sounds fantastic.

Hi Jac

I am not a "regular" on the forum but I have been reading from the sidelines and posting occasionally ever since we got Sadie two years ago. You have given me and countless others some great advice on raising a doodle. So, I wanted to step in here and say congratulations on your new home. It sounds wonderful! And the idea of a "dood" ranch is great! "Holiday with your pet in sunny California" I'll bet you would have lots of interest.

Good luck with the move and happy holidays!

Jannie and Sadie

Jac... You could find a decent 26 acre ranch here in New Mexico for about $350K! Or, in town, a "palace" on 1-2 acres for about $750K. Take a look at this website:
ok I'm crying now...there are houses there that cost half what ours did that are bigger...

Jac - congrats on your purchase!!! Good luck with your move :)
