I Am Not! Today is torture all my favorite animals day...
Carl is having his neuter. And what is with the expectation that farmers help vets wrestle and subdue their livestock for treaments and proceedures? I think they should bring their own wrestling staff with them. i am not a farmer, i am a cowardly, chicken hearted, rescuer who does not like to see her rescued animals upset and angry, esp. if i am in the same vicinity. it has taken me months to build up enough trust to get carl to take a carrot from my fingers...gee there goes that friendship in one foul blow. and why couldn't carl have either already been neutered in his past somewhere or a girl instead!!!!!
Samantha is coming to tune up and groom some of the frail little guys...jack and cedric are both going to have heart attacks because they do not like being tuned up and pretty. but...nails are getting too long, hair is becoming tangled and since they apparently are hanging around here for awhile more they have to at least be reasonably well cared for and that means nails and tangles gotta be fixed. Everytime i start messing with these guys they start the "better stop or we might die right this second" scare tactics....and these unfair, bullying tactics happen to work, by the time we are done, i will have a bleeding ulcer and need a hospital bed myself.
yesterday was such a very good day, why can't i just skip today and go straight to tomorrow!!!!
i was wrong...sam is coming on wed. no andy this time around...he gets a full body shave once a year,,,since i have to drug and lassoo him that is enough trauma to last for 365 days for both of us,
