you can talk about rescue, or you can do rescue...talking is great fun...doing, royally sucks.

this heat is deadly. the staff are cooling tunie down every couple of hours..i don't relax about her til early evening when i can finally leave the barn wide open to the cooling air.
cole was rushed to the vet today, his incontinence issues have attracted the flies again and he had maggots around the base of his tail. the vet said it is recent, just in the past day or so but jeezus they were burrowing already! his butt is shaved and he is booted out of the mp room...too many flies in there. he is in the main part of the house where it is air conditioned as the flies don't like it too cool for them. bastards...i hate them.
emily needs her hernia surgery sooner than later before that hernia strangulates. the vets are concerned about an incision in this heat and fly season but don't want us to wait. sooo...next week emily will move into the rabbit room which is also cool and airconditioned and totally fly free...it is a good thing we built those rabbit pens big enough to hold a baby calf for a week.
spritely's leg is bad...she wouldn't even come out of her stall this morning. the vets came and shot her up with pain meds, left us some more antibiotics and we will see if she gets better again. ohhh spritely, the end is just getting too close for you.
watson had his pre-op vet vet check...he will stay over night and have his surgery tomorrow..his ears are totally wrecked from a long standing infection, his eyes are wrecked from untreated glaucoma, his hips i don't know about cuz his xrays are tomorrow but i bet they are totally wrecked too...AND....watson is apparently only 3 or 4 years old.
way to go....breed a great looking purebred dog, sell him, and destroy him in less than 5 fucking years. it pisses me off.
i have started booking the new vet appointments/surgeries so we can again be freaking out over the vet bills...max goes in on saturday, daphne and jesse go next week, banjo and lucas the week after..ode to the joyful financial strain of fixing up other people's ignorant neglect.
i got a call from a communications officer with the spca today...she writes an article for the province every weekend. in a couple of weeks they are doing one on seniors so she phoned to interview me and to get saints perspective. i thought that was nice that the spca is including other rescues points of view in a weekly column they write for the province paper. kudos to them for including us. she will send me a draft when it is done.
when i got home from work (after taking watson to the vet and picking up cole from the other vet)...angelina told me a lady drove here from abbotsford with an eleven yr old cat that was hoping to get in. they took the cat home again and then angelina called them back and said i said no.
i feel really sorry for that poor cat..but jeezus flippin christ, we just cannot take them all.
hey nicole...where's the new photo album? i need something to get me out of my bad mood.
