Goodbye Misty

Misty dog was put to sleep today. She was 12 years old and failing, but at the last something else came along. It was fast, just in the last couple of days I noticed her stomach was getting rather large, then she did not eat last night. Without an autopsy we don't really know exactly what the problem was but the vet was certain he felt a mass and she definitely had internal bleeding. So a peaceful good bye was the best gift we could give her. We will miss her. Misty was a good dog.

Wild flowers!

More flowers. Just because I enjoy looking at them so much.

yes, I have to immortalize this one. At least I did not find any cats, LOL. If you don't know what geocaching is, look it up on the 'net!

Yep, another one

This one actually was picked up before Fritti.. and still does not have a name! Neither is she spayed yet, or tested, or...
well anyway, she's not ready to be adopted out. We are enjoying her antics. Some oaf dumped her on a country
highway miles from anywhere. If I had not been out geocaching... (which come to think of it is what I was doing when I found Fritti.)

There's been a few others but we placed those so fast they won't get their pictures in the blog.

Fritti, the newest rescue. The name comes from Tailchaser's Song by Tad Williams.
Fritti was the thinnest cat I have ever picked up. For the first two weeks he was just thrilled to be in the outdoor cat cage. Food! Shelter! Food! Safety! Food!

Fritti has been neutered and has his shots now. We hope to find him a forever home soon.

July's flowers

We've had such a lovely wet summer. Highly unusual yet much appreciated. The rose garden looks nice and the monarchs are everywhere. At this time of year I am more accustomed to seeing plants wilted or dying. The only drawback is the high humidity is getting to me!
