we let all of the barn guys down to the bottom field..pretty much everyone went insane...esp. flicka who threw herself in the pond! luckily she swims pretty darn good!
it was a pretty big tour group thru here today, really nice folks...one of them was lucky's previous sponsor. he is generously going to pick another dog to sponsor..i am hoping it is riley, manny or tess.
we had two sets of after hours visitors...one set was lost for two hours and had missed the 11am tour. and then a couple of folks from the kensington foundation came by later this afternoon. they were doing a check up on the rescues they support so i took them thru on another quick tour.
it made for a busy afternoon.
i had a couple of helpers for barn bedtime tonight so with my injured finger that was good! i was missing michelle cuz i lost her number...(duh) so hopeully she reads this and gives it to me again, only this time make sure i write it down on something permanent like the calender!
everyone is pretty tired..it was a long and hot day today. we opened the gates to take the house dogs for one last run and the only ones who came were june, tina, joey and al....everyone else stayed in the air conditioned house.
that new air conditioner from jamie works great so when the other one arrives, we can use it in the mp room which really needs one too.
geez...esther is getting weaker..she is doing the slow and relentless nearing the end of life downslide. she has been such a easy and super sweet dog to care for..not one ounce of pain in the ass attitude in her whole wonderful self. she has been here gracing our lives for many years now...it is so sad to watch her growing so old.
well..i can't go back to work yet but luckily i only had shifts on mon/tues so by my next set i should be ok.
i really need a bath and a hair wash, going to try to do that tonight while keeping my bandage dry....wish me luck with that!
thank you to everyone who carried us thru another weekend...everyone is good here tonight because of you!!!
