    Another day at Rescue Ink yesterday. In just a few hours, we hit the highs and the lows. Somebody drove down from Virginia to adopt Gentle Ben, a 100+ pound dog – I think he is a malamute. Later, Joe Panz came in to deliver an obviously dying cat. They got him to a vet so he could die surrounded by people who loved him. A new kitty arrived – not yet weaned. The lovable pit in front of the facility had been adopted, but the deal fell through. If it weren’t for the Ballard one dog at a time rule, I’d take her home myself.

    Good morning Terry and Chet.
    One dog rule? Whats that? We don’t like the sound of it.

    Sasha has now had 2 solid nights of sleep, meaning so did the rest of us. Woo Hoo! But Mom called us from her car to say there are accidents and detours and her dark, rainy drive took forever, so she wants to be back home in bed now.

    We hope all the quilt inhabitants areon the road to recovery today.

    Good Morning All!

    Rio is up top. I hope his friend has a better day at work.

    Terry, that little kitty…….sigh.
    On Sunday, St. John the Divine Church in NYC had the blessing of the animals.

    Staff: Grat slide, too bad the effort was lost. We’ll get those birds back in the Bronx!

    Have fun today, Spence!

    Hope everyone under the quilt are feeling better.

    Masquers/TechnoKat, I have a question for you.

    Dawson just emailed me that she does not have internet access while she is visiting her MIL in Vancouver BC. However there is a coffee roaster 1/2 block away and they have the use of kayak’s. She is very happy.

  16. BearSpiritDog
    1:13 pm on October 9th, 2012

    Wose: TechnoKat made a foe paw on the computer yesterday which has taken us back to the days of dial-up. He really should know better. Now he’s tangled up in wires.
    What was your question? I’ll pass it along.

  17. SnowBella
    1:30 pm on October 9th, 2012

    Terry: AJ, the husband, had a similar rule about the number of dogs we were to have at one time. I ignored it.

  18. Rose
    1:59 pm on October 9th, 2012

    Bear, Masquers had asked me if I had a picture of my most awesome kat, Kelly. I do, but it is a picture taken with film. If I take a digital picture of the original picture, would I be able to upload to this here blog?

  19. B.Stover
    2:21 pm on October 9th, 2012

    Rose: I’ve done that and it worked–the picture of my corvair.

  20. BearSpiritDog
    2:28 pm on October 9th, 2012

    Wose: I have limited knowledge of these matters and TKM is out and about.
    Perhaps either Melanie or MollyPop’s Mom could be of assistance in the meantime.
    It would be great to see a photo of you and Kelly!

  21. BearSpiritDog

    Also, B is right here and knows what she’s doing.

  22. Siber-H
    3:00 pm on October 9th, 2012

    Rebecca got a photo of me up on the blog using the same method Stover did. It was the photo that took the Iditarod journey with AJ. My crazy mom had taken that photo with a disposable camera.
    It is all magic to me.

    BSD is in fine form today. Cracking us up.

    Mom found out that the senility medicine for Sasha willcos $200 a month!!!! How much is that in treats? Mom says that is more treats than she can afford.

  24. Terry Ballard
    3:30 pm on October 9th, 2012


    Not even sure how that rule came into play. Our dogs tend to live a long time, so we are only on #3, even though I’m 66. Yuji would probably be happy to have a brother, but now, at least, he has me around all day.

  25. Rose
    3:47 pm on October 9th, 2012

    B, thanks for the info. I will make an attempt to get Kelly’s picture on the blog.

    Bear, the picture will be of awesome kat Kelly only. I’m very camera shy, and there are very few pictures of me known to man and nation within.

  26. SnowBella
    4:00 pm on October 9th, 2012

    Terry: My guess is the rule came into play just as the rule that I’m not allowed to go to the pound or adoption day unaccompied—happened when I was looking and without my approval.

    Wose: I have the feeling you might increase the number of pictures you appear in come March. It’s just a guess, but my money is on it.

  27. Melanie
    4:17 pm on October 9th, 2012

    Been a long day. Seemed to be the day of standing in lines that didn’t move or moved backwards!

  28. Barb & Maggie
    4:37 pm on October 9th, 2012

    Barb is back from the visit with the grands, but now she is putting a large dog crate together to put in the back of her car. Seems that tomorrow she is driving out to Lena (100 miles each way) to bring back 26 frozen chickens that Kim raised humanely and naturally for us, and 5 live hens which are going to Josh’s place. Between racoons, the kids, and the collective lack of knowledge we are a bit concerned about the longevity of said hens, but what can we do!

    Will try to post a picture of their new domicil.

    Dawson left me most of a head of cauliflower so I am thinking about Cream of Cauliflower soup for supper. Good luck Staff!

    Here is the newly assembled coop. Small but cute. It came as a kit and Josh put it together.

    4:50 pm on October 9th, 2012

    I just remembered that the pictures I put up of Brandy were pictures of pictures also.

    Hard day here at Newf Central.

    Lots of tears . . . tomorrow will be better.

    6:24 pm on October 9th, 2012

    SnowBella: Seems like you have plans……Egads!

  34. Wose
    6:28 pm on October 9th, 2012

    B&M, that coop really is cute! I wonder if a human version of that could be made? Prof and I could live up top, and then maybe we could have a four-legged underneath…..

  35. Melanie
    6:35 pm on October 9th, 2012

    Just got a phone call from The Royals’ Mum. She is feeling a bit better but was concerned that the tears from Newf Central were about Patsy.

    PATSY IS FINE. (though, dog, can she fart)

    Lots of grieving for Dan today.


  36. Barb & Maggie
    6:36 pm on October 9th, 2012

    Wose, Josh put the picture on Facebook and several of his friends actually asked if it was a coop or a playhouse for the kids. I don’t think it is legal to cage your children up, is it? Although sometimes it woud be nice!

  37. OleyHowlers
    6:39 pm on October 9th, 2012

    B&M, that coop is very nice.
    We found that med for Sasha for $70 a month. Whew! Much better. Her blood test results showed everything is in fairly good shape, considering her age. Her calcium level is high, which may be indicative of a tumor. She has much nerve damage in her hind quarters, so we will try treating that with an anti-inflammatory med. The senility is the worst and Mom is so afraid when she leaves her. Gee, guess she doesn’t trust us to take care of her and keep her out of trouble. We are hoping that medicine can help.
    Mom started feeling sick…overheated and shaking, which happens when she starts getting sick. She just took one of those Airborne’s youse were recommending.

  38. Wose
    6:51 pm on October 9th, 2012

    B&M, there are a few kids that I have encountered that do need to be caged….Ooops, did I say that?

  39. Wose
    6:55 pm on October 9th, 2012

    OHs: I hope that these new meds will help Sasha. I know youse guys will take good care of her. Tuck your mom and Sasha tight under the quilt.

    I think I will be taking an Airborne at work tomorrow….sniff…Achooo!

  44. SnowBella
    8:19 pm on October 9th, 2012

    Rio: There are some slim Jim’s for you and your friend under the quilt and gluten free treats for Melanie who also had a difficult day.

    Wose: No plotting and planning on my part, merely calling the situation as I see it.

He acted like the guy was his long lost friend he hadn’t seen in years…wheeze!…It was all very embarrassing for everyone, even the plumber…huffle!

  59. Beau - The Black Pug

    Mollys Mom called after her busy day to see the eye doctor. 120 mile round trip and 3 hours in his office. He said she’s doing great. Not so great is this painful lump in her calf. It happened during all this Oktoberfest stuff. Mommy told her it might be a blood clot and to call the doctor tomorrow.

  72. SnowBella
    10:57 pm on October 9th, 2012

    Rio: Hindsight is twenty-twenty. Next time I will think twice before locking this or that, and I will pack extra milkbones and airborn.

    11:00 pm on October 9th, 2012

    Good!…I’m just glad I could help you out there…sniff!…Please feel free to share this knowledge with the other bigger Giant…snorkel!

    Just thought y’all might like to know that mom was rewarded for going to her temporary job even though she didnt feel like it by being offered the job permanently. The same type job she had before with the schools, but a different school, with half as many kids and twice the amount of common sense in the director.

    I am getting her all tucked in so I can go sleep on the couch where no one is hacking and coughing Niters! Better days for all.
