days end

iky has left the building, we are starting out as a foster and if all goes well, we will progress to adoption once her thyroid condition is stable...i so hope this is the perfect home for her!!!!

ellie is not is three days in a row that she refused to get out of bed...she did get up to eat her dinner and did readily complain with her giant pink head sticking out of her open door when i was a bit slow to get her supper to her. but ellie in bed all day does not bode well, i will get the vets up to see her.

phoebe decided to pick a fight with sarah, and sarah was ready to clean phoebe's phoebe thinks twice before doing that again cuz someone taught malibu barbie how to turn into the karate kid when bullies show up.

tawnie and sarah's ex-family came to sign the surrender papers. normally i don't let families see the animals after they get here cuz usually it just upsets everyone. but today i did, and it upset tawnie and sarah when they left. just goes to show you that once the heart is given by a dog, no matter what, they never take it back again. there is no doubt that those dogs are happier, and feeling much better than they have for the past several years...but those were their people, their family that they loved and they wanted to go back with them again. dogs do not ever hold grudges, unlike some humans i know. anyway, it was sad because they were sad but they are over their sadness again now.
stripe and i had a talk tonight about her special cupboard house. i told her not to worry, we all knew that was her house and we all know she is totally committed to it too. tang just wants it cuz he is jealous but he is too lazy to find and commit to a cupboard house of his own so he thinks he can take hers. tang is out for quick and easy, well stripe's house is neither of those for belongs to her. so she can quit freaking out and falling off the top of the fridge, all she has to do is to scream once or twice and i will put the run on him for her.
well, i am off for a bath and an early to bed...i did not sleep very well last night. cat and dog fights and then terrible nightmares about all of us (me, mo, nicole, eva, laura and lana, lynn, zoe, kathy) trying so hard to get all of these evil ghosts out of our house (the house looked different but i remember how much we loved it in the dream so it must have been saints in disguise except i can't remember any actual animals in the dream) was freaking scary. i never have nightmares, i rarely even dream so i think this is currently interesting.



I think maybe Phoebe was trying to make friends and Malibu barbie did not understand the approach. I'll have a chat with her. No one picks on Phoebe.


Roo Roo IKY! I really hope all goes well, and the new foster family morphs into a forever family.

It'3:25 A.M., Carol, I hope all your dreams tonight are pleasant, you don't need scary shit to deal with while you face enough of that while you are awake.

Chris and I watched Best in Show again tonight (me for the fourth, maybe fifth time). Anyone who hasn't seen it, well, you have no idea what you are missing.

God loves a terrier
yes he does
God loves a terrier
that's because
brown sturdy bright and true
they give their hearts to you
God didn't miss a stitch
be it dog or be it bitch
when he made the Norwich merrier
with his cute little 'derrier'
yes God loves a terrier!
Chompy and Natasha realize that they are not Noriwch Terriers, but Terriers nonetheless. Chompy requests that we all change the word "brown" to "black", while Natasha, being multicoloured, really doesn't care.
