Update on my life

Remember me? I’ve missed you guys! I have all sorts of stories to share with you, including a new Ziggy story titled “Ziggy Eats like a Bird”. Can you guess what it’s about? As soon as I get some time to download the pictures, I will tell you! In the meantime, I wanted to give you a quick update on the rest of my life.

I took a brief break from life and went on a family vacation to celebrate my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary. It was wonderful, and I hated to return to real life. Things are a bit stressful with trying to find a place to move, trying to convince family members this will work out, trying to stay positive in spite of everyone’s concerns, and trying to get motivated to start packing. Still life goes on, and the dogs and cats are just happy that I’m back from vacation and they can get back to their regularly scheduled lives. Except for Tripoli my three-legged foster dog. He went to another rescue volunteer’s house while I was gone, and he hasn’t returned yet. He loves it there, and has informed me that his new foster mom (that’s what he calls her – his new foster mom!) is much nicer than I am and he is going to stay there, thank you very much. So I’m not sure when the traitor Tripoli is coming back.

Since I haven’t had time to visit any other blogs, write blog posts, download pictures, or do anything else related to blogging, I decided to share a few of the pictures I’ve received via e-mail recently.

This is “Fonz” – a pibble/basset mix! He loves to snuggle and go for walks, but his favorite thing is rolling around in the grass with his short little legs all spread out, while wiggling to request a belly rub. He’s been at a shelter over four months and is quickly running out of time, so I hope someone can rescue him soon.

This is Rodger – he’s the last of a litter of nine puppies we had available for adoption. He recently went to stay with new foster family and I love the bio they wrote for him. In part it says “I am learning to be a good dog. I recently attended a week of summer camp. Here are my grades: Housetraining A-, crate training A-, clean plate club B, Bath time D-.”

The little white puppy is Sadie. She was adopted from All Paws a few months ago, and is growing quickly! Her new family said she is doing great and loves chewing on her big sister Birdie.

I hopefully will get caught up soon and be able to visit your blogs and share some new posts shortly!

When I first read your sentence abouts Ziggy, I thoughts it said that "Ziggy Eats a Bird." And I was like, whoa! Chicken or turkey? But then I went back and read it again and I can't waits to find out what Ziggy's done now.

Wiggles & Wags,
