Tales from the Bush in Quebec

Monday, December 28, 2015


Last year at this exact time I was sitting on the floor in the vet’s office, holding and stroking his head on my knee, saying a final goodbye to my beloved Grump. I had spent Christmas Day much the same way – lying beside him on his cushion at home, trying to prepare both of us for what was to come.... Sign in to see full entry.

I wanted to write more, but our electricity went off yesterday afternoon after a strong wind storm, and all the cooking and cleaning planned for that day was put on hold, so this morning I am running!! At least the power came back on this morning at 6:30, so I had an early start. Both ovens are... Sign in to see full entry.

Pitiful Mom would be coming home – I was accepted!! When the woman from the Agency called to give me the news, I took advantage of the conversation to ask her for some background on my soon-to-be companion. Most Rescues arrive with issues – sometimes little things that can be corrected, and... Sign in to see full entry.

As soon as I arrived home, I logged onto the Rescue site, paid my non-refundable $25 for the application form (serious contenders only!), and was informed that it would be sent to my email. Two days later and there was no form, so I made contact by private message, then tried not to panic while... Sign in to see full entry.

Like all good marketing tools, one click on any particular thing that may interest you on Facebook and you are suddenly bombarded by posts containing similar content.
