I’m Almost Ready To Quit

Yeah, yeah, yeah. You’ve all heard it before. Poor, poor me.

Well, eventually, one gets serious. I truly don’t know how much longer Sheltie Rescue of Utah will continue under the current funding and fostering model.

Pet Sitters and Nanny-Cams

Hey…Jim and I have been talking about using a nanny-cam sort-of-like thing so we can see what’s going on while we’re out of town.  Some stuff may just be additional support that a pet sitter needs on how to handle a situation.  We’d want to be able to view what’s going on in real-time or [...]

What happened to Jasper? What happened to Smokey?

Jim and I had been out of town for about a week when we got a call from Cintya, the pet sitter, telling us that Jasper had just fallen off of the ramp and wasn’t getting up.  She was in tears and sounded somewhat hysterical.  We had talked everyday prior to this and usually several [...]
