|Well, we've had a new BRAT foster brother with us for a little while now. He's a tri named Milo and he is a fun guy -- Tag and I play with him all the time. Ivee just gripes and kvetches at us when we're having fun. I try not to be annoyed at her bad attitude, but Mom gently reminds us that Ivee has lots of issues, so we should be kind. Ivee is better than she was, but geeezzz. While Tag and Milo and I play on the bed, Ivee gets all agitated and starts pulling on the covers and growling, like she kinda wants to play but doesn't know how, and kinda like she's all PO'd at us for having fun.
But anyway, back to Milo. When Mom pulled him from the shelter in San Bernardino, they told her he wasn't neutered. The City of San Bernardino is bankrupt, so there are no vet services there anymore, so Mom had to pay an extra fee to get Milo out that would be refunded after she presented evidence that he got fixed. Mom made That Appointment for Milo, and guess what? He was already neutered! Mom felt like a real dingbat because she had even copped a feel ( MOM!) and thought she felt something back there. The vet tech was kind enough to tell her that she probably felt scar tissue from Milo's prior surgery, but she felt like a dimwit anyway. Oh well, at least he got caught up on the rest of his shots, even if he had some snoozy meds for nothing. Next step for Milo is pictures tomorrow and then Mom will get him on the BRAT website. Tag and I will hate to see him go because he's such a good playmate, but we know that's how BRAT works. We know Mom will have another foster before too long, because that's just how our Mom is. She is a good minion to all Basenjidom.
Tag and I are looking forward to the Basenji fun day in Riverside next Saturday! Ivee will stay at home because she's an ole grouch ass -- hey, Mom, don't look at me that way, you call her that, too -- and she has a chronic cough the vet can't figure out. Milo will stay home too to keep her company, although I am sure he'd have a blast with us. Mom just doesn't think she could manage us three wild boysenjis all at once. She never hesitated to take three senjis out in public before when our angel queen Ellie was with us, because Ellie's influence seemed to keep us in line, but without Ellie's help, Mom's not so sure it would work out well.
Whew - time for me to get Mom to go to bed.
