we took new buddy-boy out for a field run with the other dogs in the rain...he did ok! he is handling the stress of a new place pretty good today.
the trio of old pets from the elderly lady who is going into care arrived today (these are the ones that sheila went to meet last week.) i have set lea and sam up in the shop for now. super nice but super BIG dogs (lea is a 12 yr old st.bernard cross and sam is a 10 yr old newfie cross and both are quite obese.) we just don't have room in the house right now...plus i think they would be overwhelmed. we will start them out in the shop and get them used to hanging out with the barn chore dogs and when they are comfortable with all of the other dogs and decide they would like to move to the house..they will be more than welcome to move in. but it will be their decision. i asked their caregiver if he thought they would be ok with this and he said it i better than what they have now and certainly euthanizing either of them would have been a total shame. so i guess we will just work hard to make everything come together for them as quick as we can...but i do want them out of the shop..it is ok for a temporary solution but not for long term.
there is also a very elderly and not too healthy looking cat named Zsu-Zsu..she is 17 yrs old and is starting out in a medical room pen but my plan is to eventually move her and maybe one other elderly cat friend (like cocopuff) up to the suite...i can' t see either of them being adoptable so i would like to give them a nicer and more "normal" feeling home for whatever time they have left.
trudi went home as a foster dog with dawn today...rumple is going with maggie next week (once maggie's dog frisk is settled with her newly diagnosed diabetes.) desi the cat was adopted today so that was great!!!
sigh..three going out, three coming in...we are so stuck in the revolving door syndrome.
manny and buddy-boy are both up and sharing the couch right now....yay.
well...it has just stopped raining so maybe i won't get soaking wet putting them all to bed. and i think today is the day the clocks move forward?..i will have to try to remember that or i will be all screwed up tomorrow morning!
and..the vet just called...bert and ernie's new home is ready so he and the kids are coming by this afternoon and they too will be moving to their new home...YAY!
