pixie is not feeling great today...she hasn't eaten today and she vomited late this afternoon. hmmmm...not sure what is up with her. but she is so tiny and frail...not eating is a huge concern. if she doesn't eat tonight or tomorrow i will get her into the vet right away.
chica was not well earlier in the week. i am pretty sure she started with the pancreatitis thing which occasionally flares up on her. we started her back on some GI meds a couple of days ago. she is now better today..more like her usual self. she is eating again and was out in the fields today barking and running around.
there were a few visitors today who went thru on the tour. laura does a great job on these...takes her time to let folks have some warm and fuzzy moments with the animals.
conan the barbarian is such a barbarian...no lie...he just peed in the bed right under my feet where pixie is all curled up and asleep. so then i had to disturb her to change the bedding cuz no dog should have to sleep in cat pee! get some class conan, peeing in occupied beds is totally rude!
ahh we have been how many months now without washer and dryer issues? well the house dryer stopped working today. it is the little clasp thing inside the door, it is broken from being opened and shut and hundred times a day. i got it working again by shoving the full basket of dirty laundry up against the door to keep it closed so the stuff inside would tumble and dry. why can't they make these machines more sturdy..they should test all of their designs in an animal shelter...if the machines last more than a year then they are ok to sell on the market to the innocent public who probably do not over use their machines quite like us.
two of the visitors today were volunteers from the chilliwack spca...they sent a picture of bambi when she first arrived before they groomed her so i will try posting it for you to see.
oh...and tonight there are 3 new cats in my in box.....a 16 and a half year old whose owner has gone into care, a young peeing cat adopted recently from a "no kill shelter" and the family was told if they try to return her, she will be euthanized because no one wants peeing cats...sooo, explain this to me......how is that no kill? and the third one is a 10 yr old peeing cat who started peeing a couple of years ago with the arrival of the new baby.
does anyone know anyone who might be able to take on any of these cats? i don't want to...i have no problem with the ages and peeing...i just have an issue with bringing in any more actual breathing bodies..i really want to take a break from bringing in any more new animals for a little while...at least til all of the current new intakes are in and settled so we can see how everyone adjusts.
ok...off to do diabetic poking and settling the mp building guys to bed.
maybe jenn will post a picture of bambi today in her snazzy new jacket...while i was out visiting annabelle.... jenn was here dressing up dogs! ( and i know she took pictures of them too in their cute little sweaters and coats....so lets see the fashion show jenn!)

Well Bambi IS my poster dog for the Pepsi Challenge round 2 ... check her out all bald ....
Anyways so yeah I was at in the house taking pictures and Paluchie shivered and asked me for a sweater ... he got a hair cut recently and was cold today. So I picked out a red stripy sweater for him and he was so happy with it he rolled around for a bit and then went right to sleep.
SO then I decided since I HAD the sweaters out anyways that I would dress a few other hairless dogs ...
AND that was that as there was a serious lack of options available otherwise I would have dressed up more. Where have all of the dress up clothes ... I mean dog sweaters gone???
