Morning Meanderings… Dog Tired….
Good morning! As for the title of this post… not me, I am not tired. I am pretty good…. rested, good quiet low-key week so far However, you may know I have pretty much started a dog rescue site in my home since April…
Bailey, 14 years old now, lost his best friend (and one of mine as well), Elmo last October. One of the hardest days of my life. I suddenly understood how people said they could never own a dog again after doing something like that… too painful. I agree. It took my breath away for days.
Then in April, a friend of mine finds a stray dog by her home. After searching desperately for its owner, calling all the area vets, humane society, etc, she calls me to see if I can give him a home.
No, is my response. Can’t do it no way no how….
but I did let her bring him over…. and I did let him stay over night while she looked for a home… and uh….. Sam, is still here and not going anywhere.
Then, my Navy son comes home a couple of weeks ago. He is sitting on the deck one sunny Monday afternoon and he shares with me this story about this abused dog his friend has that was rescued by the Pequot Vet. No home, major surgery from the beer (you read that right) they were feeding it, pins in his shoulder from a recent surgery from being tossed out the back of a truck. He is 16 weeks old. Enter, Mater into our life.
So yeah…. I think I am done now. Three dogs… all great, but yeah. My quiet house… not so quiet anymore with the addition of Mater. I know he will settle down… but currently I feel a bit like “that crazy dog lady”.
So that’s what is happening here… I am finishing up Gone Girl today and holy smokes… so good. My friend Heidi is coming over tonight to pick it up and I am just loving it but at the rate I am going, I may have to wait to give it to her on Friday…. I still have a ways to go
Have you read anything lately that was sooooo awesome it was hard to put down? I need a few more of those.
