but..i did get some really important things done today at least.
renee and i bathed and blow dried maybelle and ollie..they look and more importantly... feel... so much better this week.
gunner..our cage eating stray....went home today. we will have to replace the wire on one of the medical room doors but oh well..better that than him being crunched by a car.
i spent another 45 minutes chasing an utterly freaked out dog who was running down the middle of a very busy road. i never did get him and neither did the SPCA when they came out. i suspect he will not survive the night....he was too terrorized to be abe to think. GOD DAMN not only fireworks but stupid owners who can't seem to figure out how frightening fireworks are for animals outside.
when the fireworks fly...keep your dog and cat safely inside!
i made dinner for lindsey and cam at their place and then held little ethan while they ate. he is so tiny and beautiful. i have the two absolutely cutest grandchlidren in the whole world...and i really need to get down to see annabelle this set of holidays too.
so the second new dog is here (this would be the old mastiff cross)...bo bo is lovely. he came late this afternoon and i was too busy to do much with him except stick him in the mp room. but can already tell, he is truly a lovely old dog.
rizzo is doing great. he has been loose in the computer room all night since i got home. he is quite the climber..up and down on everything..including standing on my chest and shoulders when i am sitting or laying on the couch. i actually think he likes it here...he is a super bright dog and i think he likes that there is so much interesting stuff going on. and i am quite astounded at how much effort he puts into getting to know me..he is forever coming to put his feet up on my lap or looking for a scratch or a pet...he really is a reserved yet very affectionate dog.
however...he does not like odie. they have had a couple of bitching matches thru the wire kitchen door...gee why does that not surprise me?
douglas college student tour tomorrow..i think there are 25. i will have to get that mp building done before they arrive at 10 am..looks like i will be out there working pretty damn early.
