A door closes, a door opens

My co-worker is going to look at another Maine Coon that is 4 years old and needs a home. I hope it works out for her-she needs a cat and the cat needs a home.

Poidogz I love you

I am going back to Oklahoma this weekend-if I got my dogs OUT Of the kennel, I would lose the space-but if I left them in, they would make room. So, one week has turned into two weeks (and a dental appointment for Dottie).

Yes, at this point in time (moving, winding down a job)having four dogs is too much for me-but part of that is because I am making the changes necessary to have more time. Wait for me little Poi's, I will return for you.

This is the point where people just post their dogs on Craigslist and say I don't have time to give the dog what he needs. Well, I am making the time, but I can't do it in 7 days-it takes me at least 27....hah.

It's costing a fortune in kennel bills, but they are being well taken care of, and it's worth it.

Soon we'll all be together again in our new home, with our new backyard. No more cranky man behind us. And surprise, Grandma, Grandpa and Dolly live one door down....

A Passing

My cube mate's cat died yesterday while being sedated for a trim. It was sudden, unexpected and awful. She was crying and I was hugging and the only thing that came to my mind to say was "It wasn't your fault".

And it's true, whatever went wrong, went wrong.

Sir Rusty Fuzzy Poi

My crew comes home tomorrow, but the family was thoroughly entertained by the antics of my Auntie Hilda's little Poidog, Rusty. Rust was on his way to the dog pound when my aunt took him in-lucky for us all. He's a mostly poodle, probably some terrier scruffy little wonder dog. Scary smart. A consummate host, dutifully greeting everyone no matter how often they came in the door or down the hall. He was tireless in spreading good cheer.

After a few days of visiting, he decided my Mom has the best lap for snoozing and I know she was delighted to be selected for the honor.

Rusty has found his calling as the Official Family Greeter. He was not perfect when he came into the family, well, he's still not really perfect, but a little work and a lot of love have turned him into the perfect dog for his household.

Rusty was a near victim of "the landlord found out syndrome".

People, if your lease doesn't allow for pets, don't bring them in. It isn't fair to you OR the dog.
