What’s interesting? Well to send a few hours writing and placing photographs and save to drafts, then come back a little while later and press trash instead of edit. Oops. It said I could recover it but I could not for the life of me find out how to do this, so I’ve sort of given up. And the oddest thing is that I cannot remember what I was writing about – well I sort of do to a point, but it’s long gone now. However, it does give me a chance to talk about the South Australian Dog Rescue. A dog was recently rescued from the pound – which as I said before is a kill pound. This poor Poodle was really in such a mess it was difficult to imagine how any person.with any degree of compassion, could allow this to happen. The fur of the animal was so badly matted that the vet was present when the groomer started to cut the coat. The matting was so bad that the poor animal is left with bald patches on his skin because the intensity of the matting had pulled the roots of the fur out in these places. The vet believes that the fur will never grow back in these areas. The dog will stay with a foster carer for a few weeks until it recovers then it will be vaccinated and desexed and once it is over all that trauma it will be put up for adoption. Until then, it will stay with a foster carer. I have a friend who has recently adopted a dog and the even after quite a few months the dog still has marks where it was chained up around the neck.No, don’t ask me how people could be so unkind, I honestly do not know. My friend and her husband are over the moon with their dog and were pleased to get the adoption papers last Thursday. I will take it out for a walk for them tonight along with one of my own – my son will have the other one.
We had a fundraising event for the Royal Flying Doctors Service (RFDS) yesterday and although I do not know at this stage how we fared, I should imagine we did well since we were very busy. The SADR had a stall not far from us. It was a lovely afternoon and a very flat out busy three and a half hours – 5pm – 8:30pm. I should say that the event yesterday was the Christmas Pageant and we were at the After-Pageant Fare in the gardens.
Before going out to the gardens I spent the morning and early afternoon in my garden. I decided to remove the old edging, which was looking a bit “faded and Jaded” After ripping out the old edging I discovered that the bolts I had were too big so I will now have to wait until Monday to get into the hardware store and get the right size. Not to worry, it will look nice when completed. Anyway, with a sort of unhappy story to start off with, I thought I would insert a photographs of a ‘ Man in His Office”
