the vets squeezed her in as soon as the clinic opened...it was a very peaceful and easy death. rest in peace noelle, i will miss your absolute and cheerful determination, you were a very great dog.
one of the classy chicks is really not well. i have just moved her into a comfortable cage in the shop so the other chickens don't start pecking on her.
gideon has some kind of irritating growth inside the upper lid of his right eye. dionne called the vets out, he has 4 times a day antibiotic/steriodal eye cream and they will recheck it on monday.
the hay arrived today...there are 40 bales of soft third cut green grass (on the right side of the hay shed if you are facing the hay) for gideon, pops, edith and caroline. the courser 80 bales of timothy hay (on the left side of the hay shed if you are facing the hay) is for everyone else. if anyone who feeds the barn guys hay is not sure which is which..please ask mo or me BEFORE it goes out into the hay racks.
that new dog bear who i was trying to hold off for a few weeks and who used to belong to one of my clients who has passed away..is coming tomorrow. the family that was caring for him were advised to put on a "vibrating"...(ie shock) collar on him to control his barking and he is totally freaking out and trying to bite at his neck each time it goes off. giving something a gentler and more palatable name is misleading to innocent folks who just don't know about some of these not so humane training tools. anyway..he is distressed so i said he could come in on saturday.
ok..that is the updates, i am totally physically and emotionally done for today.
My heart is broken this morning to see this. Rest in peace Noelle...
