We’ll blog more about the details later, but I wanted to tell our readers that we set some kind of new record last week. In one week, we placed for adoption six (6) dogs! It happened so fast that I found myself quietly crying one evening because I couldn’t remember all the details and I was missing all of the dogs hanging around. Don’t get me wrong…it was the right thing to do for each and every one of them. The adopters are all super matches for each of the dogs, and the dogs are already sending reports about how happy they are in their new homes.
Lemme see if I can get the full list from memory (if not, I’m sure Barbara will straighten me out): Scotty, Sable, Maggie, Max, Molly, and Macey. Yup, that’s the right list.
Now, we’re panicking (well, I am…Barbara’s taking everything in stride, as she always does) because we’re supposed to drive away to the 2010 ASSA National in Tucson, AZ (about a 15 hour drive) in approximately 40 hours! And we haven’t even started selecting most of the product that we’re planning to sell there.
However, part of getting ready for joint travel is reducing the number of dogs in the house, especially for a new petsitter, which we have again this time. Consequently, we’ve sent Sparky (who was a little despondent about it) off to spend two weeks at Alan and Sharl’s house, and the two new, un-neutered, and not-quite-housetrained big boys just went off to Second Chance to be boarded while we’re gone.
The house is eerily quiet with only (pause for a quick count) ten (10) dogs in the house! Who’s still here (he asks himself aloud)? Star and Abby, of course. Tommy (who’s going with us to Tucson). Sienna and Jet. Peyton. Lady. Jill (the terrier). Porter. And the new 10-week old puppy, who was being called “Tigger”, but we’re not sure if we’re keeping the name. Heck, even with Sparky, Chad, and Jeremy, that’s only 13 and it’s unbelievably quiet.
Well, we may or may not get to blog any more before we leave for Tucson, and we’ll probably blog only a little bit while at the National (it’s incredibly busy running the Rescue Booth!). So please be patient with us!
