Hawkeye the Aussie is bumping my arm as I try to type.
Dotty the Pointer mix is throwing herself at the window and rearranging the furniture because she sees a cat outside.
Othello the big black dog is being perfect as usual. Well, one good thing on the homefront.
A skinny brown dog is the latest stray to show up at the front door. I'm trying to locate an owner.
After being out for awhile this morning, I came home to 14 phone messages, one about a found dog, most of the rest about dogs that need to find a place to go right away. The emails brought the same messages.
One of our vets talked me into taking a dog they were calling Dumpster. Someone had found him in a dumpster. Disgarded? Or just shopping for dinner? I don't know, but this boy turned out to be heartworm positive, so the man who found him can't afford him and left him with the vet.
Two people are returning dogs they adopted from us earlier. One was adopted as a puppy and is coming back as a one-year-old who is too rough with grandchildren. The other barks at other dogs when he's out on walks.
I'm taking three different meds for my allergies and pain meds for an arthritic knee. My desktop died and I haven'et yet transferred all the data from there to my laptop. At least the geeks were able to save most of in.
But who's complaining, OK, I am. So I'd better get to the positives.
We have had some good adoptions lately, including a husky mix and a pomeranian. And the new foster who took home Holly on Sunday now thinks she wants to adopt her. And I've caught up with the paperwork and the bills.
And the beautiful Zahra, above, is now ready for adoption. And we've taken in some new dogs, including Nipper, the 5 pound chihuahua (below).
So life goes on as usual. But can I at least softly whisper "help!"
