Welcome To The Blackmon Family
Welcome to our World
Hi, I'm Lanie and my husband is Ron.
The cute couple above, cheek to cheek.
We have been married now for over 22 years and we live on 20 acres in Corona California, where our home is nestled in a canyon surrounded by hills, and 5 minutes to the major freeway, to Dos Lago's Outdoor Mall, Movie House, Trilogy, Golfing, Glen Ivy Hotsprings, The Crossings, Restraunts & lots of Shopping.
It's truly a wonderful place to live and also a great place to raise our furkids.
We are very blessed in life and I am very happy.
Never knew life or I, could be so happy.

OUR BEAUTIFUL FURKIDS
In the beginning, it was just Brandi, Ally & Ginger.
In August of 2005, Brandi became sick.
Brandi passed away June 12th 2006
from Lymphoma Cancer.
I miss her so dam much and I wish Brandi was still here. She was my best friend and I was very close to her.
I have a Angel page for Brandi.
You can read my story I wrote after Brandi passed away and what I went through after she passed. Just click on the "Angel Brandi" tab up top, & read how Brandi lead me to the Corona Animal Shelter. My story was printed in the book called
By Joan Wester Anderson
At the Corona Animal Shelter,
I found Rootbeer & Mandi there.
And then in 2006, I now have four goldens.
Ginger, Mandi, Ally & Rootbeer.
June 2008 rolls around and
Ginger, my first golden I ever had, passed away on
June 18th, 2008.
1997 - 2008
Ginger (Gin Gin)
Ginger was 11 years old and we had to put her down due to Mega Esophagus, which puppies are known to get, not a 11 year old healthy & happy golden.
Ginger lived a very happy, and loving life with us
and we miss her alot.
Then in 2008, there was three goldens,
Ally, Mandi & Rootbeer.
4 happy Years go by and then on March 10th 2011, Mandi became very sick and passed away.
Mandi was 7 years old and she passed away suddenly,
& on the day before my 51st birthday.
Mandi became ill very quickly and within a few days,
we had to put her down.
The Vet said it was something internal and I truly believe we made the right choice.
Her brother Rootbeer misses her so much.
As of May 2011 I have now 2
ALLY & ROOTBEER
Ally is 13 y.o & Rootbeer is 10 y.o
My sweet girl Ally who was 15 years old passed away

pictures of Zoey. She is 2 years old & my first
small furkid. Love her to death already.
As of March 18th 2015

All God's creatures deserve to wag their tails.
OUR HOME- BEFORE & THEN AFTER
HOME SWEET HOME
Do you want to see what two determined people (Ron & I) can do? When we bought the 20 acres for $75,000.00 in 2001, it also had a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom mobil home (A 1980 mobil) on the property which hadn't been lived in for over 2 years and it was a complete mess. A mess is a mild word for it really.
So there is photos of what we did to the property, what we knocked down and what we put up and replaced.
Then we decided to get a bigger place.
We bought our new home in 2004 and lived in a little 25' travel trailer with our 3 golden retrievers. we put it where the old house was, and while our new home was being put on our property.
The 13 Sycamore trees in the front yard was blocking our view, so we knocked them all down a year later.
And finally our latest project which we just completed in 2008, is our pond where the trees used to be
and then we added our beautiful green grass in front.
Before the grass the front was a dusty dirt
filled front yard for over 5 years and oh my,
I love my grass and pond.
Ron did a awesome job, and I helped a little too!!!
