GK's dance was during school but at the end of the day. The kids had three choices, the dance, a movie, or study hall. As you remember she asked the Nerd Boys to be her dates and go to the dance. None of them took her up on her offer. So she and some girl friends danced the afternoon away and had a good time. After school the Nerd pac came up to her and said they wished they had listened to her because they were bored in the movie. I love her response....."we'll see, it's always best to follow the pack leader". They agreed.
Speaking of packs....I believe we are adding a member to ours. His name is Jameson. He is part beagle, part dalmation and a whole lot of energy. The grands, SM and I went to introduce ourselves to him, his foster Mom and the other volunteers of NMDOG at their Valentine event. He is so cute. All white with black spots and brindle ears. He washed the grands faces and laid down on GK's lap. It was so sweet. Tomorrow the director of NMDOG will bring him here to Casa de Cuckoo for the home and yard inspection and hopefully if we pass muster then Jameson will begin his forever life as our newest adored pet.
|Can't you just see him wondering if this is the profile shot they wanted????|
When I saw his story, I was touched. He was left by his humans chained in the yard. He endured sub freezing temps and no food for who knows how long before some neighbors called attention to his plight to the animal rescue folks in Las Cruces. They got a seizure order, waited the 48 hours, took bolt cutters to the chain and swept him away to Albuquerque where he has been living with 8 other dogs and 3 cats and learning his manners from a wonderful foster family. I loved his sweet face and today's meeting just reinforced what a sweet, friendly dog he truly is. Keep your fingers crossed for us and I'll let you know what happens.
SM is, as always the voice of reason and thinks that Jameson may be too much for me to handle with my painful shoulder. And he is right. I don't intend to muscle Mr. J, I will use my head bitch in charge voice like I have with all the animals and I'm sure that in time (not too long from what his foster Mom said) he'll be under my spell. When I told her it was me and the brat pack during the days and they never stray too far from where I am, she said the Jameson is the same with her. So SM, don't worry, I got this.
And speaking of getting this....(don't you love these transitions????) What do you get for an animal loving, Dia de Los Muertos loving, Oz adoring, witchy Olde Broad for Valentine's Day love? Well just lookie at what my lovelies have sent me. Awwwww, art and fun. Thanks to yous that dun it. Couldn't have asked for anything more.....er maybe some extra millions but other than that and a Butterfinger, it's all good.
