Doggie Doin’s

This weekend so far has been all about my canine buddies. Thursday night we had the quarterly board meeting for the Milam Touch of Love group. Lots more people than I thought were coming were there, which made me wish I’d moved into the sanctuary rather than in the conference room. That made it rather cozy but also amplified the sounds of the folks who wanted to carry on conversations while we were trying to go through the agenda.

I’m officially official.

Though it was really different from most board meetings I’ve attended, we did get to hear from the committees eventually. And wow, a lot of good work has been started, and many new needs identified! The organization will have to be careful to stick to its mission and work with other entities, like law enforcement and other organizations, so we can all work together.

What about Penney?

And to exit my soapbox, Penney became officially ours on Friday. She even came to the office with Lee yesterday. All the noises in Cameron made her a little nervous but she did okay.

I like it here!

All the dogs are getting along fairly well. There are occasionally a few yips, but they are obviously becoming friends. Penney has some food issues, so we are working with her on that.

We even let everyone in bed at the same time.

Today we went to Temple for errands and so we could eat at Chipotle to raise more money for Milam Touch of Love. They hope to do a lot more Trap Neuter Release operations on cats. The two currently at our old office were the first recipients, only it turned out Her-Bert was already spayed. It was a fun time for The team working with the two angry cats, though.

The dog tag reflects bright yellow on the other side.

While I was out, I had to, ya know, had to go to Petsmart. I got Penney a name tag and Vlassic a slightly smaller new collar. And another tug-o-war toy, since all the dogs love them. I should not go in pet stores.
