A Quick Update

Well, we’ve been back from the National for two weeks (plus most of today) and I haven’t had time to blog. I still don’t but I really should let you guys know some of what’s going on.

THE NATIONAL

I spent the first entire week home working on the financial paperwork for the National Rescue [...]

They Just Keep On Coming!

Yesterday, Barbara drove up to the Ogden shelter to pick up a 10 year old "neutered" male, Buffy, whose owner had died. Big boy, about 20", but not overweight. Lovely, lovely personality, blond sable coat, sweet expression, sway-backed, and very tender on his left elbow. Justice, not yet neutered, won’t leave him alone; today, Barbara [...]

Stranger In A Strange Land

I’m back from Korea. Got in mid-afternoon on Saturday after a long, but uneventful trip involving a taxi, three planes, and a train. Don’t ask… Barbara picked me up at the airport with Abby and Star in the car, which was really, really nice. The girls (all three of them ) were happy [...]

Sounds of Silence

No, nothing bad to report. But I thought I’d explicitly note the absence of new blog entries recently. I’m still in Korea (yes, the meeting is going very well, thanks for asking!) and the weather is good again, after a couple of days of pretty hard rain. But I’m really looking forward to being home [...]

Ballet’s Gone…How? Why?

Crud. We’re here in Bucharest, getting ready to leave our hotel to take the subway to the train station.

And Amanda just phoned us, crying. She had just gotten a phone call from Cottonwood Animal Hospital saying that Ballet has died. Amanda wasn’t positive when it happened — at first, she said "last night", but thought [...]

Ballet

While Jim and Barbara are out for three weeks, I am taking care of the dogs at their house. Well, leaving wasn’t very easy for them…actually it never really is, but this time was exceptionally hard. They left here knowing there was a good chance that Ballet won’t be here when they get [...]

Tap and Ballet

Well, the pack has grown by a couple of Shelties. Actually, this happened last weekend, but things have been too crazy for me to blog about it until now.

Three or four years ago, a woman contacted us with a request that we take one of her two Shelties into our program. She woman’s health was [...]
