We're baccckkkk! Lucky for all of you! Hahaha I had to go home to CT yesterday and spent 6 hours doing laundry. I think we are finally back to normal (well as normal as we can be).So, I want to write to you but you've got me so welled-up with tears I'm like Barbara, I can't see straight to write.
Trudy glad to see you made it home safely. It was a pleasure to meet you and Ed. And thank you for watching Wexler.
Wexler now also needs to lose 10 lbs. Between Trudy and our other friends, Wex had cookies galore!! He had some love relationship with Trudy, maybe cuz she was the cookie lady but he just adored her. Our other friends, one who was in a wheelchair, had a bag of cookies too. When he would see them, he knew it was feeding time. Both couples were trying to steal him. Trying to fit him in their suitcases.
I did get hugs from Trudy but I hope one day to get real hugs from my sister Roz.
Congrats Roz on passing your test!!! Way to go Horty!!! Somehow they know when it's important and they can really turn it on.
Trudy did you look into a release dog? If you do end up filling out an application, I will call my friend up here and see if she has any connections down in Florida.
As for the CT shootings, I have cried everyday. It is just devastating and this one hit too close to home. CT is a very small state and nothing is more than an hour away. I was very nervous with John going back to school today, something I never thought to worry about before. I have never seen so many news reporters and so many men crying before. And anyone who doesn't think that our President isn't great is just nuts. He makes me proud to live in this country. I pray for all the families who lost their little ones and all those brave teachers who gave their lives.
Cindy, my intellectual side says that John is safe and there's nothing to worry about but after what we all witnessed this past week.......No one is immune to the violence in our world! Our babies, these sweet children belong to all of us......and, the brave women who tried to save them, my heart hurts!
Okay, enough, I'm so glad you're home and it sounds like your cruise was a good one. Was the potty box in a good place and did they treat you all well?
Thank you for your confidence in me......I think we'll get 3 years....he's a great dog and deserves it.
Trudy, the waiting list is closed for released dogs from CCI and will re-open in 6 months. Make sure you're on the list. There's was a time when the waiting list was longer than 2 years.
I missed you Cindy and I'm so glad that your all safe and home. I'd love to cruise with you one day.
Another Roz Story: We moved our offices to a location that doesn't have a good potty spot or play area for Horton. Brenda was very lucky to have the advantage of working with me when I was at a community center, with large, fenced in play yards and big grassy areas. Horton only got to enjoy that for a few months before we moved into a real "citified" office. We have to dodge cars to go for our walks and the grassy areas are so few that other dogs waste is left everywhere and poor Horty has to dodge that.
So, I found a company called; "Dog and the City"; they set up potty-box's with real sod and maintain them every two weeks for a monthly fee. I'm going to have it placed in our underground garage and no more rainy days and the chance of a "hit and run!" I'll see how it goes. It'll be worth it if it means my precious dog won't be hit by a car!
Horton is very good at going potty in a potty box and nothing will seem different to him. I'll let you all know.
Love you Cindy, welcome home!
