Sarah–Monday, December 22, 2014

Friday, we got a call for help from one of Terry’s friends.  Rick is a middle-aged bachelor who lives a mile and half from us and was sick —- with what he thought was the flu.

To make a long story short we got him to the hospital where they operated and started treatment, he was doing much better when he developed pneumonia and then had a massive stroke. It’s been a rather long weekend of worry and concern here.

At the time of this writing he is in Grand Junction at Saint Mary’s Hospital surrounded by his two sisters.

Sarah

I have Sarah.  Sarah hates the camera so I haven’t been able to get a very good photo of her.  Sarah is very stressed out, but adjusting to our way of life.

CompanyBoomer has had a great time running and playing with Sarah. The only thing Boomer doesn’t like is if Sarah gets too close to me…then he turns into a Jealous Jelly Bean of a dog.  Meaning he WILL TAKE ON SARAH…which is NOT GOOD!

Sarah is a man’s dog, this has helped.  She has enjoyed going and doing things with Terry and will always, always, go to him and give him the first welcoming kiss or her front paw.

But Sarah isn’t ours.

Rick was keeping Sarah for a friend who was out-of-town.  Ken is back home now and will be coming out around 10:00 a.m. to take Sarah home.

It’s been rather fun for Boomer to have running and sniffing companion and someone to share walks with…it hasn’t been fun for the cats since Sarah LOVE TO CHASE CATS!

(Sigh)

My heart goes out to Rick and his family.  I am pleased that Sarah will have her human back, although she adored Rick, even slept on the bed with him.  I’m glad Boomer had a dog friend for awhile.  I have this belief that the perfect dog, which Boomer likes and fits into our family complete with cats will show up.

Oh a brighter note I Thank Each and Everyone of you for your thoughts and well wishes on our Anniversary yesterday.  You gave us a very bright spot in this rather gloomy time!

Your friend,

Linda
