I am proud to announce that we are the new parents of a 10 pound BLIND shiatsu 3 year old female who was found lost near 14th Street (nearby where we live...very busy street....)wandering in traffic. Scared of all the noise, she just ran in circles not knowing which way to turn. No one claimed her (if she had been mine and got loose, I would be turning over heaven and earth to find her....)and the ARL put her up for adoption yesterday. We looked at all the other kitties and doggies there but, didn't see any we liked very much except for one cat who was "bonded" with another and there was no way I was taking home two cats. When we came out to leave, Emma was in the receptionist's lap and we asked about her. Yes, she was available for adoption and yes, she has had all her shots. Since we were already in the system for the brat's dog, Sir Spazo Harley....the adoption went smoothly. This little blind dog had stolen everybody's heart there at the ARL and before we could leave, there were six of the staff members that had to come and say good-bye to her. It was so sweet and they took a picture with us and the staff together.
Emma looks just about like Penny only a bit smaller, same coloring (cream and black/gray)and nearly the same facial features including the protruding bottom hair under her mouth. Of course, both Penny and Mykie are just thrilled to have a new sister and the cats have pretty much figured a blind dog wasn't much of a threat and went on about ignoring the whole commotion. The fish are swimming hysterically about going "Another one??". I know .....why take on such a burden at such a time? The wife has been pretty down and the medical news is not the best. Heart damage, kidney damage, foot surgery....the list just seems to go on and on. Neglecting your diabetes is not smart. And i will admit, I miss the brat's cat we were keeping. I sort of grew attached to her. But, the challenge of keeping a blind dog does weigh on my mind. She needed a good home. That's something we can give her, I think.

Thanks Elu....just an up-date....Emmie is doing just fine, Mykie and Penny seem to like her and we are learning her ways. She spins around to orientate herself by sound and won't drink water unless I mix a little milk in it. Don't ask me why....I guess she doesn't like the smell of our water. But, she knows what the grass outside is for and stays close to the sound of her master's voice. She is VERY quiet, I've only heard her fuss and bark once when she had to go out. She'll whine a little if you leave her alone too long. She is a "High Needs" dog. But, that's OK ......I'm used to dog blankets. She is nice and warm on a cold night.

I enjoy reading these stories about you pets and your house and family. You have quite a load on your shoulders. I do hope Donna gets well soon and you and she can go garaging and antique/junking. While you're taking care of Donna and the menagerie remember to take care of you.
