It was an emotional, exhausting, tiring and full trip to Kentucky. I returned home in the very late hours of Wednesday, and was asked to work on Thursday, which really added to my fatigue. This evening for the first time I'm starting to feel like I'm coming out of the fog I've been in. It's great to be home! I've missed the routine, and of course the dogs, who Carl took great care of while I was gone.
On Thursday I was contacted by the rescue and asked about taking a new senior girl. Of course I didn't say "no" and on Friday evening, we welcomed a very lovely girl named Lexi. Said to be in her very senior years, Lexi comes to us via a shelter in southern Maryland.
~Ready to leave the shelter!~
For some reason her owner left her with a roommate, who decided they didn't want her, and took her to the shelter. I'm not sure why or how that happened, but what I'm sure of is that she has been cared for. She is a gal that shows no signs of neglect; her coat is brushed, nails are trimmed, even her teeth are in great shape.
Lexi oozes confidence, friendliness, beauty and spark that everyone who has met her agrees that she has. Our pups easily accepted her, and she has quickly found her place.
I don't think Lexi has stopped smiling and wagging her tail since I met her. I can only guess that she's glad to be out of the shelter!
Welcome to Golden Pines, Lexi, for the both of is, it's great to be home!
