On Friday, two strange people came over our house. daddy worked from home that day because he had a dental cleaning and also needed to get his car inspected. Shortly after mom came home from work, the two people came. It was a man and a woman. They walked all around our house- inside and out. The woman was writing things down on a clipboard. I was curious so I followed them. Mom told me they were going to figure out how much our house is worth. Mom and dad would like to find a new house with a bigger yard for me. It would be nice to run. After the people left we went for a long evening walk. It was nice but I didn't see anyone I knew.
On Saturday I made a donation! Most of you must have heard about Patrick, the pitbull from NJ? He had a really bad mom who almost starved him to death. He was also thrown down a garbage shoot and left for dead. Luckily he was rescued just in time and is now recovering in a shelter in NJ. He is now a famous ambassador against animal abuse and he had many pages on Facebook. Mom joined a couple of his fan pages. This weekend people from all over the country made donations to their local shelters in Patrick's name. Mom thought it would be nice if I made the donation for Patrick. I gave up some of my new tennis type balls and the cats gave a few cans of cat food and some food bowls. We selected Buddy Dog as the shelter to donate to. Mom is doing a walk for Save A Dog in May and is getting sponsors now: http://www.saveadog.org/pledge11.asp?user_id=1353 That is her sponsor page in case anyone would like to sponsor mom. Anyway, we also donate to Greyhound Friends every year too. We thought it would be nice to give to Buddy Dog. We went to the shelter and the woman behind the desk was very happy to receive the items. She thanked me, mom and dad very much. It felt good to help. I remember what it was like to be in a shelter.
Yesterday was a quite day for me. Mom and dad went to a place called Worcester, MA to a vegetarian festival. I couldn't go to that- although I do enjoy vegetarian dog food once in awhile! Mom and dad took me for my long walk when they came home. We walked down the river trail. I met a Chocolate Lab along the way. He was still a big puppy but very friendly. We had just reached the rocks when I saw two people and a dog walking towards us. It was Copley!!! I was SO happy. I got to walk back with Copley. I am so happy the weather is better now and I can see him again.
My boyfriend, GT comes home from the hospital tomorrow. I am looking forward to seeing him. He has been through so much. Mom said we find out how much our house is worth tonight. The house mom and dad looked at last week with the big yard is still available and has dropped to a price we can afford! I don't know if we can buy it though because we have to sell our house first. We shall see tonight.
