HaPpY (belated) New Year!!

I am sorry to say I have been sick.....again...... I couldn't breathe and I was coughing and coughing and coughing and .... Well, you get the idea. Even with the maximum over-the-counter-strength medications redeployed from being sick the week before, I knew I needed to step it up and go to the doctor. So that's what I did.  And I (unfortunately) tested positive for the flu.
I am not sick all that often, so I will admit that I make a terrible sick person. The dogs seemed to know I wasn't feeling well, and one day when I was home alone, they let me sleep in until about 10 o'clock. I am finally back on my feet, and I'm pretty confident I've finally got this flu bug behind me. 

Despite my not being 100%, our newest arrival Ginger is all settled in. Aside from chasing the cat on occasion, she's easy going, happy and getting along well with everyone. All the dogs like her, and we of course, like her too. And we aren't the only ones. When Ginger came into the rescue, she met a family that happened to be at the vets office (with their cats) when she arrived. This family taken by her story applied to adopt her. I was asked to let them see Ginger and spend some time with her.
They had a 3 year old dog that was unneutered, and pretty energetic. He wouldn't leave Ginger alone. With that, and my just not getting a good vibe from the family, I felt strongly that they weren't a match for Ginger. The rescue supported my opinion, and they let them know. And then this week I had a reminder to follow those feelings when it was discovered that Ginger is NOT spayed....That's all I'll say about that and what a disaster it would have been to place her with that family and their unneutered dog.

Aside from that and snow expected this weekend, it has been pretty quiet as we're nearly halfway into January.


Happy belated New Year from us!
