i have about half an hour before i have to get dressed and leave for the fundraiser...i want to get there a little bit early to at least help with set or something work related for tonight.
it was a wonderful day here today...i buggered off at 0830 to pick a few things that saints needed and then i went shopping for something to wear cuz i wasn't going to have time this afternoon. i got back here by 1030 and the place was abuzz with everyone working while i was out goofing off!
i came home with a swimming pool for endeara and edwina to share. there was a whole little fan club out there watching a crippled little duck swimming around in a childs wading pool and enjoying every minute of it. i only left her for an hour cuz i could see that she getting tired. we put her to bed and she tucked her head under her wing and settled for a duck nap.
we got the tarps hung up so that was good and it took three of us to get jed on his feet cuz we were done out at the barn but he happened to like it out there.
rae and hubby stopped by with the cutest little puppy, they were transporting for another rescue group so i couldn't steal her away.
there is a very sad dog that i heard of today. he is a 7 month old aussie cross. his family left the pups from birth in a 20x20 pen and the pups grew up terrified and unsocialized. when my friend got there, the 2 females were being taken by 2 separate and totally unprepared homes. when they saw how bad the pups were, they tried to get all three but just managed to get the last one. she works at one of the shelters and took him there in hopes of finding him an appropriate home but he is catatonic with terror and soiling himself so his adoptability looks pretty poor. i gave her some suggestions on who might be able to help him but bottom line is, he can not stay at the shelter, he is too traumatized and messed up to survive. if she hits a brick wall, she will call me back so he doesn't get euthanized and i will have to think long and hard if we can handle another squirt and andy right now.
poor thing, stupid people...how hard is it to go and play with a bunch of cute puppies a few times a day?
apparently i have to speak for a couple of minutes tonight, nicole neglected to tell me this until noon. i have no idea what i will say so it will be a surprise to everyone including me. (i write much better than i speak by the way, even without capital letters!)
wish us luck tonight and i will be thinking of all of the folks who support us but were too far away to come tonight and i want to thank everyone before the event even begins, for helping us to help parapalegic ducks, seizuring clydes, crazy phoebes, arthritic jeanettes, homeless americats, demon-goat ediths, and fat little elderly petunias...either past or future or at the fundraiser tonight. thank you everyone!!!!
