bleh

The past couple of days have been a total downer.
Even though the ducklings from the last post are super adorable, we've been trying to keep them out of our yard. Mostly because they need to learn to be ducks, the way ducks should, and also because we have four dogs. Well, Friday afternoon, we thought all the ducklings were gone when we let the dogs outside. One little duckling didn't make it. The other five were gathered and taken to a wildlife refuge, where hopefully they'll have a chance to start fresh.

The second piece of horribleness is that one of our dogs (not the duck killer) fell ill the same day. he got progressively worse and was taken to the vet Tuesday morning. The diagnosis wasn't good. the vet is scheduled to make a house call today at noon and we have to say goodbye to our little Tiger.

Stupid week.

I'm so sorry to hear that. As I read, I realize that it's 12:12. My heart goes out to you and your family. A pet is a family member whose life leaves an imprint on you. I hope you have lots of imprints to remember.
