the turkey did not arrive..not sure if and when she will. i hate being on the hook for an animal...someone else might need that space that i already set aside for the new girl. do i hold it?...do i let someone else in..well since no other actual turkeys or barnyards are requesting it at this particular minute..i guess it doesn't matter right now.
mystic's bloodwork is back...minor changes BUT she has gone from normal kidney values to minor kidney problems so i guess things are starting to get rough for her kidneys now. i don't even want to think about this so i am blocking it right out of my head.
we think lahanie had a small stroke. we had the vets out. while i was holding him and picking around in his coat, i saw he had lice again. shit! and damn! we must not have gotten it all like we thought. this time we are going to do the oral ivermectin, screw the dry kill powder crap...we will go for the internal stuff.
ellie was not properly locked into her stall last night and she got out into ziggy's area and then pushed her door shut so she couldn't get back into her own bed.. neither one was very happy..i think they both spent quite a stressful and unhappy night....i put them to bed tonight and assured them both that the door was closed tightly AND locked!
jesse had to go into the vet first thing today..he is in the midst of a nasty vestibular episode. poor jess feels like absolute shit and i feel really bad for him too!
you really do not want to screw around with the saints volunteers. do not throw down the gauntlet and expect to win. i said i would only adopt phoebe if they raised over $10,000.00 for the pub night so they went out and did it. and then to add insult to injury, they made me wear a phoebe shirt and a phoebe be-dazzled vest!
they made me sign the papers at the pub (probably so i could not skip out of town.) phoebe has now offically joined my personal family along with dixie-chick, frodo, daphne and maude.
you probably think so what is the difference? she is going to live the rest of her life with me anyway. well the difference is, i no longer have the oft dreamed of possible option as a rescue of euthanizing a RED PAIN IN THE ASS...the little red whirling wonder for better or worse is now part of my family FOREVER cuz i can't knock off my actual family members...too bad!
and...oh yay..i can just see laura doing the tours now...phoebe running around and barking like a total freakoid and laura smiling and saying...oh yes, and that is carol's personal dog. (please tell folks she came like this and i had nothing to do with her getting all screwed up!)
sigh, in retrospect..i should have said they had to raise 20 grand.
i guess i need to take her out for breakfast to celebrate tomorrow...phebes hasn't been to mcdonalds for a very long time.
last year they tried to shave my head, this year they made me adopt the little red hag, they are talking about making me get a tattoo next year...when they all know...i do not do tattoo's.
hmmm.....i think next year should be about tormenting the midas touch volunteers...you guys have to raise at least $15,000 or you have to all tattoo phoebe's face on your collective ass.
i think that is fair!
anywho....awesome job everyone and big thanks to everyone who chipped in for this and for those who were able to come (it was a sold out night!)...almost 12 thousand is pretty damn amazing for a pub night..i am actually stunned that you pulled this off!!!!!! we will get those crazy vet bills under control yet and phoebe is now (shudder) a much loved hine!
