hmmm...my little brain is whirling away....

so many sad and betrayed creatures out there. how many can we reasonably save? someone posted these gawd awful photo's of barrels of dead animals nuked in american high kill shelters. the website of ace of hearts where bridgette and kai are coming from, quotes 475 nuked companion animals a day from LA county....this photo really bothered me.
i think i want to commit to bringing up 4 senior animals a year (cats and dogs without species bias) this shouldn't impact our ability to continue with our much more extensive canadian work but i feel we just have to help someone down there too. i will talk to ace of hearts and see what we can arrange.
while bridgette is a sweet heart...kai is not. he has been pulled from the shelter on his euth day and taken to the vet. so far they have discovered a few little things...testicles, anemia, a raging bladder infection, a bladder full of stones. whatever, we will fix him up once he gets here. kai is not a nice little camper, he is sounding like quite the pill...whatever again, for sure he needs us if he is socially a turd....this IS the house at pooh corner.
AND...i got an email which upset me...an elderly past police force horse who has spent the last years since his retirement teaching children and adults how to ride. he hasn't been cared for, he has hunger related food issues, he is skinny and looks his ancient age and the last folks to look at him said no thx cuz he reminded them of how their old horse looked before it died.
so here is a life long service animal nearing the end of his road, abandoned in non existent gratitude for serving us all so well....this just pisses me right off.
and my little brain is whirling tonight...can we squeeze in another with a few slight alterations to our almost completed loafing shed? my gut says we can, maybe, so i am thinking on this.
mo, lane, steve and randy...don't permanently maim or hurt me over this.
