from MASH to Love

Today I volunteered at the Spay Neuter KC Clinic for their MASH. They spayed/neutered eighty something animals. I was assigned to keep an eye on the male big dogs. Go figure! LOL!

We had the biggest dog I've ever seen. I think Tank is a Mastiff.

There was many very sweet Pitbulls. I've never really been around Pits before. These dogs great. There was one, Buddy, that broke my heart. A room mate had dropped him off & didn't pick him up. So we were thinking that Buddy was being abandoned. He was the last dog there. He is all by himself tonight in a kennel, with an Elizabethan collar on. He was scared. I had him on my lap loving on him & crying. At that moment I hated people. How could someone just dump him? I had tried to call the owner but it wouldn't go through, then do a reverse search on his address online with no luck. I was so upset. I saying that he was an asshole for dumping this little pup. On my way home I got a call from Buddy's owner. He didn't realize that the room mate hadn't picked Buddy up. I told him that I was calling all kinds of names & that Buddy was a very sweet boy. He said he would pick Buddy up at 8AM tomorrow. I'm still upset. He should have checked with the room mate during the day. But he did sound like he did care for Buddy. Poor Buddy, all by himself after having his nads removed.

I suspected I will be volunteering again for the next MASH in August.

I'm glad the weekend is over. Hubby has been in Rochester, NY. He's visiting his mother & brother. He's replaced a toilet, installed a storm window, removed an antenna & insulation in the attic, cleaned gutters, and did some yard work, God know what else. Have I said lately that he's amazing? I hate it when we are apart. Not because of his handyman work, but because he's my very best friend. Tomorrow, July 27th, is our 24th anniversary. He flies in tomorrow just in time to meet me for supper. He is coeur de mon coeur, l'amour de ma vie.

Love ya babe!

Candy Shoppe!

The family made a side stop on our trip to the casino. We are such a wild bunch! LOL! The Candy Shoppe was a trip down memory lane. I bought a sponge candy brick, sweet tarts, and some mints. Hubby got some dark chocolate, gummy something & some licorice. These photos are of a few things I saw.

Some Canadian shots

View from my sister's deck. We spent the first half of our vacation here. We would sit outside on her deck drinking our morning coffee. What a view!

Sister's landscaping

Dad's garden, still too early up there to harvest anything yet.

Parent's cottage where we stayed half our vacation.

Float plane. We were in a boat & caused waves. The float plane had to wait for our wake to die down before taking off.

Guess the R fell! LOL! This was on a building wanting us to watch for snow falling from the roof.

Moose! We were on our way to go strawberry picking at a farm in Sturgeon Falls and saw this beautiful girl.

Patridge! This mom partridge tried to lure us away from her chick. I did see it but couldn't get a picture of it.

Hubby has a few more photos that I took on his blog. We had a great time but are glad to be back home in our own bed.

How Dogs And Men Are The Same

How Dogs And Men Are The Same

1. Both take up too much space on the bed.

2. Both have irrational fears about vacuum cleaning.

3. Both mark their territory.

4. Neither tells you what's bothering them.

5. The smaller ones tend to be more nervous.

6. Neither does any dishes.

7. Both fart shamelessly.

8. Neither of them notice when you get your hair cut.

9. Both like dominance games.

10. Both are suspicious of the postman.

11. Neither understands what you see in cats.

All in all I'm pretty lucky in the hubby front. Most of this does NOT apply to him. But I've known some husbands who were. As I write this I smell fresh baked bread made by the hubby. Yea, I really can't complain I have it better than most.
