My good friend Sammy Sam of My Dog Sam has been asking for a very specific video for a long time. He has been so supportive that I just couldn’t say no any longer. I didn’t think it would be hard to put it together but – as always – Shiva surprised me. Even though she has been doing this basic trick for around three years, apparently everything changes when I get down to join her.
Silly, but fun. I hope Sammy Sam approves!
This may also be the last video shot in our current location. No more tiny dark living room. Maybe, just maybe, the next one you see will be taken in our very own fenced yard.
Can you beat that? I can hardly believe it myself.
After months and months of looking, I’d pretty much given up hope we’d ever find what we wanted. Last Tuesday morning, I half-heartedly went online to see if there were any new listings. Not expecting a response, I sent a couple more emails then went to work. Nine hours later we were in the house of our dreams. The rest of the week was spent in agony as we waited for the usual reference and credit checks to go through. When we signed the lease on Friday, all the tension finally lifted.
Of course, now we only have two weeks to get everything ready to move. Which seriously blows. But right now I don’t even care about all the work that awaits us. We have a place to live! It’s a Father’s Day Miracle!
What’s making you happy today?
For Petfinder’s Adopt a Shelter Cat Month, I am taking a minute every day in June to share the stories of a few of the cats waiting for their forever homes.
This guy’s name is Van Gogh. Does he remind you of anyone? He is kickin’ it with the folks at Hungry and Homeless Cat Rescue in Ottawa. Like a certain Kitty Meister, Van Gogh is laid back and unphased by the world. They say he is a natural leader, and I wonder if that impressive mane doesn’t have something to do with it. If you are looking for a cat to serve, he looks like your guy.
Here is another orange dude, appropriately named Simba. At Lucky’s Place in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota, Simba craves affection. While he can be a bit shy with strangers, he’ll have you wrapped around his paw in no time. I can’t think of a better way to spend the day than curled up with this cutie.
