I'm so glad that it's Friday! The week started off routinely enough, but some where it seemed to change direction. Some of you saw and commented on the post I had on Wednesday about Todd but later deleted. I planned about 3 weeks ago to take Todd in to be 'altered.' I knew that he wasn't supposed to have any food or water, but I gave him a small training treat before I remembered that I shouldn't. Not thinking it would create a problem, I didn't worry about it. Well, it created a problem and the vet wouldn't do the surgery and I had to reschedule it for next week. As upset as I was, of course I would have been more upset if something would have happened to Todd during the procedure because of it.

The next problem I had was what to do with a hungry puppy for the day. Too far from home and patients scheduled, the day-care thankfully had room for Todd that afternoon. So I took him to work with me for the morning and the shop where I buy dog-food gave me a small sample bag so I didn't have to purchase any.
This was just how the week went. Whenever things didn't seem to go as I thought they should, something happened and they would work out another way. Unfortunately I didn't realize that until I started writing this post...I guess I really need to work on being a bit more flexible...
I'm really excited that Jasmine and I are going to meet someone tomorrow morning that is interested in adopting her. Marilyn is a widow in her early sixties and lost her last Golden several months ago. She has adopted senior dogs from the rescue 3 times before. And in talking with her, she seems to have a tremendous capacity to give, grieve and give again. I'm looking forward to meeting her and I so hope that she and Jasmine have a connection. Marilyn is meeting other senior dogs next week so we'll see how it goes.
Finally, don't forget, if you'd like to be entered in the drawing for the book, Pure GOLD, please post a comment on my previous post by Sunday. Enjoy your weekend!
