Good Monday morning! Well I’m off today for CHA and can hardly wait. I’m meeting my friend Daisy from eclectic Paperie and will be walking the floor looking at new product. I should have some great updates over the next few days. I’ll also be helping with the eclectic Paperie make-and-take in the Splitcoaststampers Booth on Friday! If you are going to be there for the Super Show, please stop by and say hi!
Before I go I must tell you about the new member of our family. Friday morning while Mr. Stodgy was driving to work he got stopped just a few blocks from home. There were two cars stopped on the road and little black and white dog standing in the middle of the street. Mr. Stodgy pulled off the road and called for the dog. He came to him and tugged at Mr. Stodgy’s heartstrings. The dog had no collar, covered in mud and fleas, his eyes were cloudy as could be and he was a ball of mats. Mr. Stodgy brought the poor thing home and then when the vet’s office opened took him up there. The dog had severe eye infections but was not blind, both ears were infected so badly that one was closed up and he has only teeth on one side. His tongue hangs out on the right side of his mouth . . . and I can attest that this gums are very strong. He has a problem with being touched and especially when it’s time for his meds. After some discussions with the vet, Mr. Stodgy decided to pay for all the medical needs of the dog and keep him. Whoever the previous owner was apparently does not need this dog. So, meet Zeke.
One of Mallory’s friends called and this very dog she found roaming around about 3 years ago. They put it in the garage and went to the Shelter to try and find the owner. The owner did show and they gave the dog back. We have all agreed that Zeke needed to be rescued and the employees in the vet’s office actually applauded when Mr. Stodgy walked out with Zeke in his arms.
While I’m showing off family members you might as well meet Kate’s puppy, Neyland. He is a Basenji who after Friday night found himself in obedience school Saturday morning.
Of course, we can’t forget Sydney and Elliot. Here’s Syd in her now favorite hiding spot . . . her old puppy carrier.
Elliot (Miss Ellie) finds any place to lay where Zeke is not. We’ve decided that she is now the middle pup and is having a hard time acclimating to the changes.
Thanks all for today! I’m planning on some great adventures over the next few days and will try to keep you updated!
