We've had a week of internet and phone problems. Keeping a connection on the internet for any length of time was almost impossible. Thinking it was just the internet, on Wednesday I realized that our land-line was dead and going straight to voice-mail. This may not have been a problem if we had voice-mail on our land-line, but we don't. New equipment arrived on Friday and Carl seems to have resolved the internet issues, but fixing our land-line is probably something only our phone company can fix.
Whatever our internet problems were at home, it didn't stop me from looking at it while at work. On Tuesday I saw on Facebook a plea from a local rescue that was looking for 'emergency foster homes' for 100 cats in a shelter in Virginia that was closing. The cats were going to be euthanized if rescues were unable to take them. So, you can guess what happened next.....I know, I know, we just lost our sweet girl CC and I was really adamant about not getting another cat because of Shadow. But we would only be fostering the cat, and not keeping it, so that makes it okay, right?
Right....And that's what I'm going to keep telling myself now that I've met six-month-old "Dale," who arrived today at Golden Pines. Of course all the dogs were excited to meet him, especially Charlie.
Todd was front and center and kept jumping up to get a better look.
For now, Dale is staying in our spare room, and we've not allowed the dogs to meet him outside of the crate. Charlie has been sitting outside the bedroom door whining and hoping for a glimpse of the new arrival--I did let him in to get a closer look because for whatever reason Charlie seems to be really taken by him.
