Rescue Journal

looks like a roller coaster weekend

i was home a bit later than expected, i stopped and picked up somethings for the party tomorrow (like a coffee maker and a tea pot..the animals broke the last tea pot...but i left it on the counter so we are all to fault) anyway...the dogs were frantic and so were the barn guys...OMG after 8 pm and still no dinner!

and then i got freaked out cuz no ellie..i called and called, and it was dark and i couldn't see her. finally i found her on her knees, halfway to the barn. .....oh ellie...

it took another half an hour to get her in, i told her she was a good girl, and i loved her and she could do this, she is very brave and how sorry i was that she hurt so bad. the rest of the barn guys were very patient once they got into their stalls. tunie moved out of ellie's stall on her own before we got in. i think she knew ellie was having trouble cuz tunie never leaves ellie's bed without a fight.

i am teary writing this, i am so scared that we might lose her. she is just a babe. i don't even want to think about this.

and tomorrow, we are losing ogidie and ruby. colleen is coming at lunch time to help them to pass. i do not want to make ogidie upset and leave here in a crises, he gets so afraid. and ruby is just not having any fun at all. trina told me she got stuck under one of the raised dogs beds today. that great oaf sadie, decided to lay on the same bed and ruby was trapped and screaming underneath. she wasn't hurt but it scared her and she is getting stuck in odd places all the time now. someone is not always here to rescue her.

there are some good things happening this weekend...the party of course. and all of these guys adore parties (and the food). and meaghan is taking pat the cat home tomorrow for his trial. i so hope it works out well for everyone. and there are a couple of potential new volunteers coming early in the morning for their first tour of saints. maybe if they like it here and feel comfortable they will come back and help us.

and isn't this what life is all about?...the good, the bad, the happy and the sad, the things that scare us and the things we hope for every day...we will see how well i handle it all in the same should be interesting to see how i cope.

Carol - how is Ellie this morning? Is she feeling any better? I am sorry to hear about Ruby and Ogidie. I hope all goes smoothly and that your heart is ok.


I hope you all have a wonderful time at the Potluck. Eat lots, drink lots, laugh lots and enjoy the animals! Wish I could be there!
