i should be recalling all of the good things we experienced during the last 12 months. instead i am slightly stunned that yet another whole year has slipped by in the blink of an eye! huh?? where the hell did the last year go anyway???
phoebe slept in until just after nine am this morning and then literally exploded out of her room and started creating chaos everywhere. so here i am on the last day of the year anticipating another year soon to start with living with phoebe all over again.
one more afternoon shift then i switch back down to day shifts tomorrow..short shifting is always a great way to start any new year.
one new dog to come in...he has been on our possible, last resort list since november and made it up to the incoming list just before xmas. he is an old husky cross up north in an animal control shelter...we are just waiting for him to fly down, probably early in the new year. i don't know much about him except he is old with a growth on his nose and he was found loose on the highway. i probably should have asked what they named him but i forgot. anyway..i guess i will find out soon enough.
i sent emails back on both of those dogs...the biter and the one where the family has no time. i am pretty sure neither one said what they wanted to hear, sometimes reality sucks. oh well maybe they will find their perfect scenario..just hope it is as perfect for the dog as it is for the folks.
i think pretty much the only thing that is going to make me feel good about rescue today is winning the pepsi challenge cuz at least then all of the vet bills from this year are finally paid.
so while i wish you all a very happy new year...for us, i just see more of the same...a never ending line up of animals trying to get in...a really suckingly poor door(wo)man letting too many in....another 50 or 60 thousand dollars in vet bills ka-chinking away and a few hundred hassles and pain in the ass days coming our way.
don't get me wrong here...i am not terribly unhappy or dreading what is to come..i am just feeling sort of resigned to the continued challenges of it all.
you gotta love rescue..it is just like the blending of year into year into year...it is the VERY long story without THE END.
every day is a beginning, there are no endings i guess.
