I cannot believe the month of June is behind us. Wasn't I just saying that about May? Time passes much, much too quickly. Am I the only one who can remember when time seemed to stretch on forever, especially in the summertime?
Of course things have been steady and busy. Eva continues to do pretty well.
Then there is our new TEMPORARY addition Chipper. While the foster home coordinator has been out of town, we've been trying to decide what to to - Move him to a new foster home, or work with him through the transition to being part of a family. I'm on the fence.
Finally in my last post, some of you were surprised to read about the Amish puppy mills and their treatment of dogs; especially because their religion is all about peace. It's not my intention to put all Amish into the category of mistreating animals. That would be totally unfair. My friend that has lived in Lancaster Pennsylvania for many years is not the only one that knows many of them to be truly kind, humorous, educated and reliable people. But the Amish that raise and breed dogs in deplorable conditions, (without electricity) and sell them do not consider them any different from the livestock that they raise on their farms and treat them that way. This is because to them, dogs are almost of no practical use for them except for hunting, especially since they don't produce anything edible, like milk, meat, etc. I am not the only one who finds it heartbreaking and sad that this is how they perceive and consequently treat dogs like Chipper. But he is lucky, he has found his way to a better life.
