Just in time for Thanksgiving, 'Humble' arrives at Goldens Pines! She's a lovely 13 year old girl, given up by her family who want to travel and don't have time for her. (Are you thinking what I'm thinking?) Our crew meet new additions like real pros. Even Todd after he shows some Scottie attitude is just fine! However, as expected, Lucas is totally smitten by the fair and lovely Humble who doesn't share those same feelings for him. One thing they do have in common is their affection and obsession with our cat, CC. But unlike Lucas who only took a basic class in cat-stalking, Humble appears to have taken the advanced course and we are going to have to be very watchful of her interactions with CC to prevent her from being accidentally hurt. Humble has also taken lessons in counter-surfing and has shown her talent for reaching whatever is within nose reach.
With the Thanksgiving holiday I'm glad we have several days to get everything sorted out and get Humbled settled in. She's not been to the vet in about 3 years and is very thin and underweight. I was supposed to take Wendy in for an exam and check-up at the vet this morning, but she has graciously given up her appointment so that Humble can be seen instead. I'm hopeful everything for Humble is going to be okay.
