Sorry for the lack of posts recently. Like I wrote in my last post, I'm letting myself catch up to the rest of my life. It's slow going, but I am getting there. Just so you don't think I've fallen off the face of the planet, I've decided to give you all a little update.
*We're down to just three puppies. Three puppies were adopted at stand on Saturday, and now three puppies remain. I thought it would be harder to know there were only three left, to know that three of the puppies I had raised were gone. I'm shocked at what a relief it is to have 3 fewer pups. It only takes one trip to get everyone outside. Even if there's an accident, it's typically just one small puddle, not 3. It takes less food to feed them, they're not mauling Mama dog, and they all fit in one crate (not a large pen). That said, those three dogs are still up for adoption. They all need forever homes. I'm hoping to post pictures soon, but in the meantime you can find out more at www.henricohumane.org.
*Mama dog, aka Macy, may have a new home. I'm still waiting on the application (it looks like there are some internet issues), but the family seems great. Which, of course, means that soon we'll be down another dog.
*Merlin has now been on thyroid medication for 6 weeks. It's amazing the difference it's made. He's still not perfect, but he is much improved. I like improvement. I've said it before, but I also think having the house and the yard helped dramatically. The thyroid meds are just another push in the right direction.
*Shadow still needs a home. She's cute. She's cuddly. She's full of energy. Doesn't anyone want this cuddle-bug?
*July will be the month of events (at least the first two weeks). July 6th is Cody's birthday. Can you believe he'll be three?! July 14th is Hans' and my third anniversary. July 4th, of course, is Independence Day, but it's also the last day of The Sound of Music. I WILL HAVE MY HUSBAND BACK!!!!! This will make Cody's birthday and our anniversary even better. Also for our anniversary we're taking a weekend out of town. Mom is watching the dogs, we're taking Cody, and we are getting away. Thank goodness!
Well, that's it for now. Look for more posts soon!
