It started out grey this morning and I was hoping for rain.
Fortunately the temperature was fine the entire day....for a change.
Before noon, Gary and I headed in to Victor
where Lollypop Farm is located.
This is the Humane Society complex and it is quite amazing.
They handle 15,000 animals each year.
Horses, cows, goats, pigs, llamas, emus, rabbits, rats, hamsters, all kinds of birds and more.
We were there to look at this little old man. His name is Sage and he is 13 years old, looking for a nice home to finish out his life. Friendly, perky, adorable and....
currently growing back some hair on his back where he had dermatitis.
He also has cataracts.
My line of thinking is changing and I am very influenced by another blogger...
Kim at Golden Pines. She takes in golden retrievers, labs and other dogs who have been deserted for one reason or another. Usually they are old with some sort of problem, and she has support from various rescues. I have been reading her blog for years, and she has had to put dogs down many times, leaving me in tears. BUT! No matter what, she has given them love and quality of life until the end. I'm beginning to think this would be the right thing to do for this dog. They say his family's house burned down and now he can't live in an apartment with them. I'm not so sure what I think about his story....but I do know that he is very sweet.
If he is still there, I will take Phoebe over to meet him on Monday.
Because he is a senior and we are seniors, there would be no fee...such an incentive to find homes for these oldies but goodies.
What do you think?
On the way home we stopped at Eastview Mall and had lunch at PF Changs.
We started off with lettuce wraps and each had a chicken dish.
So busy eating I forgot to take pictures.
We headed back to the farm a little after 3.
Reading and nap time until I went out to do chores.
This was like a vacation day.
Tucked the girls in and was happy to have cooler weather.
French toast for dinner at 9.
