I'm putting my feet up after a bit of a wild day. I had intended not to go out but get caught up on laundry and work on my never-ending craft studio reno.
TB was dealing with the flu still so I held off on laundry so he could rest and wasn't sure when he was taking his shower. I just got a load in after he left for work at 1 pm when a young woman who has been like a daughter to us called quite upset. Her Mom breeds Bull Terriors and was at a dog show in California. Her Dad stayed home with a new litter of pups but also hurt his foot badly and wasn't moving around easily. He called his daughter this morning to say one of the older dogs was dead in her kennel. The young woman is newly separated and has two young children and no vehicle. So, I ended up picking her and the dog up and taking it to the vet for cremation. I am an animal lover through and through and will help out in any way I can.
Then I went to Costco for an item they didn't have...I got out 1 hour and $175 later.
When the cashier asked if I got everything I needed I said "nope, but I got everything I didn't need"!
I came home to our little monkey asleep on a table just inside the door way on some reusable grocery bags. It was cute but also a start. I wrote about it in the smile thread but since have learned that she got out (must have been when I left) and our neighbour's granddaughter caught her. The neighbour has a key, so her granddaughter put Monkey inside on that table. I guess that is where she stayed!
Finally, I am worried about Violet. She has been glued to me all day and is whining a lot. I am hoping her hips aren't bothering her again. There isn't much more they can giver her for the pain. We were told about laser treatments but I have done research and it seems 50/50 whether they work or not.
