Foster #1 – Tessa

A weekend visitor from the kennel is staying with me for three days while she recovers from her spay surgery. It’s a safe one, she is already adopted and will be going to her forever home on Tuesday. It feels good to have a little breathing furry friend curled up next to me.

Princess

Out like a light by 11:00 AM

Marley had a busy morning this morning, and is already zonked out back on her bed again at 11:00 AM. It was so nice when we got up that I decided to take her over for a nice walk at the dog park near the house. We don’t go very often any more, mostly because…
