Well, alot going on.
I wrote an entire entry devoted to the missing dogs on my KCL account, you'll have to go over there to read all of it. In a nutshell, though, one of my tenants did not latch the gate properly this morning, locked the gate OPEN and my Danes got out. Got home, saw they were missing, went straight to the pound, found both of them, that's the jist of the story. Oh, and $238 spent on the ordeal as well.

Well, the dogs are now licensed, they are good on rabies for 3 years as well as Parvo - though I had already given them parvo shots, the pound automatically gives them another dose and said it isn't harmful to get a double dose. And - of course - the dogs are HOME. Not the situation I can say about the tenant, of whom I would like to speak to AGAIN about the gate situation.

ONE work day left until Staycation!!! Yayyyyyyy!!!! I can't wait. To do - nothing? No, I was just outside getting things prepared for my intended marathon to get that drip system installed. It's just been plain to frikkin' hot out there, I stopped doing anything except watering the plants, picking up the dog poop and cleaning whatever needs cleaned.

OH, btw, my Danes got out, but my Leopard dog stayed in the yard! I'm sooooo proud of her, she's a very smart dog. I watched on video surveillance as the danes cruised right out the gate - Coco, the Leopard Dog - stood back a good 20 feet and did not follow suit. That gate was opened for HOURS - she could have left, but she didn't!

I'm having difficulty even thinking beyond the dogs. I had a mindful of things I wanted to write out but it's totally eluding me now. I had thoughts of losing the dogs forever, I'm very attached to them and the only way I ever want to see them go is when they pass and life is over for them. Their ordeal has all 3 of them passed out on the floor. Coco was very agitated when I came home. When she thinks she's in trouble, she starts peeing. This doesn't happen very often, but I made sure I let her know in the best human terms I could that I was not mad at her at all and was, in fact, very elated that she did not leave with the rest of them. Which simply means saying her name in very affectionate terms - a thing she responds to with delight I might add - and telling her how good a girl she is - you know, humans treating their dogs like they're - humans, lol.

I'm still very ancy, though, as I don't know when this guy's coming back. He is usually here by now. I MUST inform him of what happened and that I most certainly do NOT want this to be happening again, no good reason for it. What if he repeats the same thing all over again tomorrow? NO.

Oh, well my dad sent me another check today - he's been doing that near the beginning of the month for - 5 months now I think. It was for $150, which comes very close to paying for the "Dane Fiasco".

Umm, sorry, I just don't have whatever it was. The dogs are very uneasy right now and are coming back and forth, staring at me, very nervous. Just gonna end this one.

Ava' good day, mates!

Interesting day. Up early - 4:00, jolted out of deep sleep by the ridiculous phone alarm - annoying as all get out but that's the inten...
