We don't know how your week is going, but ours is going well. We received an e-mail from Abby's new home, they say (in part):
She is doing really well with Romeo and I think they both have a crush on each other. She has been practicing walking using the "Gentle Leader". At first she shakes her head, but after a few feet her walking (pulling) has greatly improved. Abby has also made friends with both cats. She brings them her tennis ball and stuffed squirrel for approval. And they seem to really like her too. We feel so blessed to have Abby in our lives. She is the perfect dog.It is so nice to hear from our old friends from time to time.
Tonight we take Honey and Butter over to meet their new Forever Home. We are meeting at "Rescue Central" to fill out the paperwork and hand over two friends. We are trying to keep Honey dry, she has tried to climb into the fish pond twice already. It is a very hot day and she has a heavy coat.
We will give you an update on Honey and Butter after they meet with their Forever Home people. Remember, Honey and Butter may decide not to leave if the situation does not meet their standards. We have already received an e-mail promising to buy a wading pool for them so they can beat the heat in New Mexico. There still is no update on the thickness of the dog beds and the quantity of treats that are being offered. Toys and balls are also important. So Honey and Butter will be taking a close look at the home being offered before they accept.
Then on Friday the chauffeur says we have a big carpet cleaning machine coming in. He says it is even bigger and makes more noise than the hated vacuum cleaner machine. To make being outside better, he may open the pool while we are locked in the back yard.
This weekend will be the weekend of the loud noises. We don't mind, we have been to a firing range, we know what loud noises are. But many of our canine friends are very scared of fireworks and the loud bangs. Make sure your pets are safe, check your gates and fences. We don't want to lose a reader because someone ran away from home to escape the loud noises.
