it was a nice day today. tina-fey went off to her new home on the island...i was busy at the time so laura took care of the finalizing of the adoption...have a great chicken-free life tina-fey!
at the very last minute we had to add..."not good with chickens" on the info part of her adoption form...that crippled little bugger zoomed into the hen house and started chasing the chickens around. apparently bad dogs lose their crippledness when chickens are running around.
i gave the tour to the very nice spca cruelty officer who came here for some warm and fuzzy's on her day off...percy could have been charged with human cruelty for sucking back half of her hair! she thought he was pretty darn funny!
i almost got a bit teary when i introduced her to chief and ebony...she was the investigating officer for that seizure and she was very happy to see them so happy and well now. she took a lot of pictures to share some of the other spca seized animals with their investigating officers as well. they really have a very sad and difficult job...they see the worst of it all. it probably feels good to see them happy... after their stint in hell is done.
chief and ebony were schmoozing together as always on the couch. those two cats adore each other..they know where they came from and they are glad to be here together now.
the horses were groomed today again, two days in a row!!!...this makes me so happy. it is the one thing that has been bugging me for a really long time. mo is going to work out a barn schedule so she and others have some one on one grooming time too. we finally have enough weekend barn volunteers now that we can start doing this on a regular basis now. little chubby gideon still looked very handsome at bedtime tonight.
sheri is still up for teaching the novice how to groom. she will be back here next sunday so anyone who is interested can meet up with her then.
mystic is utterly exhausted...she burned off all of her puppyhood this afternoon. she has only woken up briefly to share some ice cream with me and then she went right back to sleep.
20 yr old molly spent a lot of time out in the barn and going for walks today. she has not come out for months now but today she decided it was the day to head out and see everything. she is pretty tired tonight too...sound asleep on the bed at my feet and she did NOT wake up for ice cream!
sheila brought her foster puppy chauncey for some extra socialization today. he was pretty overwhelmed initially but by the end of the visit he was trucking along keeping up with everybody. he is a SUPER CUTE puppy! hopefully she will bring him back again next weekend...i firmly believe that saints is THE perfect place to socialize puppies. there is not too much in the world that is not right here...tons of nice other animals of all kinds of species....and lots of happy people everywhere....it has got to be a very good thing.
ok...i am tired and my head is stuffed to the rim. i need some cold and sinus medicine and as soon as i take it, i will quickly be falling asleep.
thank you to all of the weekend warriors for another great weekend. and thx for the bathing and grooming especially...my bed will be full of clean dogs tonight and i like that as well even if i currently have no sense of smell!
