Roll Call: Pet and People Updates!
It seems like I've been gone forever and yet, I had only my usual two days off which always seems like about 30 minutes. It's been rough at work lately, as we've been short one copy editor for a month now, ever since Jake the Snake left us to become a reporter. And it didn't take him long to forget us! So, since then our workload has been even heavier than normal (cue violins).
On my days off, all I want to do is catch up on SLEEP, but this weekend I forced myself to clean the entire house, as it was LONG overdue. I'm sore as heck, but it's done! The Boss and I even managed to get out for dinner. We went to Benne's Steakhouse and Piano Bar on Franklin St. It was GREAT. Yes, it's a bit pricey, but worth it, as the food was cooked to perfection, the staff was wonderful and the atmosphere calm and welcoming. Better yet, NO SCREAMING KIDS. I recommend the place to all!
I also managed to cover up my gray hairs, as I had neglected my dye job for too long.
Some pet updates: Inge's latest rescue dog, Sgt. Rogers, who I posted below a few days ago, was scheduled for surgery on the fence injury to his belly. But the poor guy has tested positive for heartworms, so now he has to be treated for that and his surgery has been postponed for about 2 months. As you know, treating heartworms is expensive, on top of the surgery, so anyone who wants to help can do so through the Second Chance and Happy Tails Web site.
The Golden Pups: I read Tina's blog regularly (and wish I had more time to post) and she says the three survivors are back with her and doing well. Soon they will be spayed/neutered and on their way to New England. I believe she said two already have been adopted! What an amazing story it has been, with so many involved in helping. Words are not enough to thank Tina for all she's done. A truer angel for animals there's never been.
Brett and Jeremy have raised some money selling candy, for both Cats Are Us and the pups. Hopefully will have an official count of donations and remaining bill. THANK YOU EVERYONE for helping!
So, everyone, update us all on what's going on in your life and your pets lives. Pam hasn't been around as often! I wonder what she's up to?
Zoe is recovering nicely from her anal gland infection and the rest are doing what they do best: Annoy The Boss! They take after their Mommy that way.
I don't know about you, but I am ready for a Pet People gathering VERY SOON. Hopefully we'll have a new copy editor SOON and I can get back to a more normal, less taxing schedule. (cue more violins).
