I received a Facebook message this morning from the organization where we had signed up to foster dogs (All 4 Paws.) After the orientation last week I was pretty sure they weren’t going to have a little dog for us any time soon – but they did!
Rosie came this afternoon to hang out with us. She came from a puppy mill (she’s a mommy dog) and was living in a rabbit coop until around 4:30 this afternoon. We’ve been trying to let her chill and keep Dixie from overwhelming her in a frenzy of excitement.
Dixie is very concerned that she is missing out on something exciting.
She’s pretty sure some extra treats would make her feel a lot more confident about her place around here.
So far Rosie doesn’t want to eat or drink or even pee. Outside seems to be a little much for her to deal with. She just wants to be on a lap. Which makes her the dog Jack has always dreamed of.
Update: She just walked around outside and even wagged her tail a little bit so that’s super fun.
We (I) have to take her in the morning to be spayed (autocorrect: slayed – no) at 7:30 AM. Poor little girl is going to think the world outside of the coop is not so great.
In other news I drove in my car to get her and listened to a podcast (what?!) and used GPS.
Waze told me I shouldn’t be going anywhere. That was super weird.
The PA turnpike isn’t handing out tickets – they are sending bills based on your license plate (or billing your EZPass like normal times.)
It’s time for some new ink. Mulling over my options. I have a whole stash of new ones. This is who I am now.
I made some sub-par brownies and used up all of my chocolate chips.
Luckily I have placed multiple Target orders for important items including cocoa, dog treats, chocolate bars, shampoo, a new cookbook, ketchup, cake mix, and vitamins. And chocolate chips.
It’s not the same as wandering around Target but still fun when the boxes come.
And I open them on the floor. And throw away the packaging. And wipe down where the box was. And wash the hell out of my hands.
So that’s a whole fun dance routine that I didn’t get to do before. Bright side.
Hope your day was filled with some sort of companionship – virtual, IRL, human, pet.
Hang in there!
