phoebe was a problem last night...she kept jumping the gate and showing up in my bed periodically...her snarling (and one ineffective bite on my leg) would awaken and alert me that the ghoul had once again returned. there were 3 poodles and a pug on my bed, plus various cats...no room for irritable ghouls. i think i will have to crate her for awhile til she stops trying to sneak in.
just waiting for the vets to open to give me some direction on how best to help sweet pea. she coped ok during the night and slept well so we are not in a panic this morning. i am probably somewhat selfishly dragging my feet here because sweet pea is very special to me. the one disadvantage to a good pharmacopia and knowledge base for symptom management...sometimes i can push the envelope just a little bit further, but then for what point? just for me.
albert has a bit of SA....he can throw a huge fuss if he is not right by your side. he slept velcro'd to my face.
we watched "amazing grace" late into the night while we surrounded albert and squirt and helped them to feel welcome...i had never heard of wilberforce...remember, i was educated in the states. now i have another past hero to add to my list.
raymond is meeting a potential new family today, they will be visiting several dogs around the lower mainland. we will see how it all goes..if it is meant to be, it will be.
oh...and i suspect our new little smokey is significantly older than 10. she is eating and drinking and is a very sweet cat. i do think that ultimately my plan to have her live in the cat/small dog room, will not suit her too well. sigh...i see another animal in my animal free den. (current count is three)
