My heart feels heavy today, as I left my 14 year old dog Maggie at the vets for surgery today. It was considered a "high-risk" surgery due to her age, but the poor old girl had a mouth of infected, rotten teeth that needed to be taken care of. I feel completely negligent that I didn't notice she was having trouble eating until I gave her a TimBit (small donut hole) and she yelped. It's awful to be so busy that you don't take proper care of the ones you love.
My son works at Starbucks and whenever David and I go there, we bring Maggie. My son dutifully brings out a small cup of whipped cream for her. It's VERY serious business for Maggie!
After dropping off Maggie at the vets for her surgery, I went on to the shelter and rescued a couple of kittens. One little grey/white 4 month girl that wasn't on the shelter website yet, and "Tonka":
But the name "Tonka" has to go! :)
Our rescue is part of a big Holiday Fundraising Bazaar this Saturday at a local church. Fortunately, we have such a kick a$$ fundraising committee, I don't have to work at the event! I'm actually going to be a SHOPPER, which is something I do VERY well.
Glad there's *something* I do well, because right now, I'm feeling pretty hopeless where my Maggie is concerned. I can hardly wait to pick her up tonight.
