bow wow!

♫♪♪ take a bow. bow wow take a bow♪♪♫
When I was a kid, I had a record that was all songs about dogs, and "take a bow, bow wow take a bow , take a bow, bow wow here and now .." was on it. so was "I'm too big for my dog house, cant get through the door, I want to lie down there, thats what a dog house is for.." and of course.. "how much is that doggie in the window.. the one with the waggily tail, how much is that doggie in the window, I do hope that doggies for sale." There was probably about 10 more doggie songs on it but at the moment those are the only three I remember any of. (haha..lucky for you.) just be glad you cant hear me singing them!

I've been on call since friday and I have 19 hours overtime in at this moment.. I think.. maybe 19 and a half! I'm so glad I'm not on call again until sept! Its been a crazy week.

today I rescued a kitty.. a very sick little kitten. severely anemic from fleas! we tried to drowned off the fleas at work, and ended up picking off about 60 of them and she was still crawling with them! I took it to the vet this afternoon and left it. A few of us are pitching in to pay the vet bill. the vet couldnt promise that the sweet little thing would make it through the night. If it does.. then I have a whole other problem... what to do with it. I cant keep it. It will need a home. I have a feeling though that she wont make it. though the vet told me shed call me if she got worse, adn I havent heard from her! People make me so mad when they dont take care of their animals. I have so much more that I could say about this whole matter, but because it is work related, I will say no more!

So, do you like the little doggie I made this week? not sure if I'm keeping it or not. I have a special friend that I do a swap with every holiday, so I just might give it to her, though I'm leaning towards keeping it! I have a couple other 4th of july friends dancing in my brain right now too.. so we'll see what comes out this weekend!

I suppose I should get ready for bed, I have to leave and hour and 45 minutes earlier tomorrow to go to a training in buffalo.. thats going to kill me! (the leaving early, not the training!) I'm up plenty early enough but i have things I like to do here in the mornings..

OK.. off I go.. sweet dreams everyone! keep our little DSS mascot in your prayers.. k?

It's been a crazy week for you, hasn't it? I hope you were able to get some precious sleep last night and that your training is a good one today. Your felt dog is just delightful. I'm always impressed with everything you do.

By the way, I posted your ornament swap and cupcakes on my blog yesterday.

My patriotic sunroom tree is just filled with your goodies. Thank you thank you. Several people commented on your beautiful cupcakes too.

Safe travels back and forth today. I hope that precious kitty makes it through the night.

Sweet lil' Viv! YOU ARE MY HERO! I'm serious! I hope so much the kitty makes it! Keep us posted! Please! Your patriotic puppy is WONDERFUL! Darn, I wish I could needlefelt! As for your doggy songs: I definitely remember How Much is That Doggy in the Window! (In fact, now I'm going to have it in my head all day! LOL! Without realizing I'm doing it, I tend to SING out loud even in public places like when I'm shopping. Finally, someone will either GLARE at me or grin, and I realize I've been singing again. UH-OH! I'm headed to Barnes & Noble, Hobby Lobby, and the bank today. Let's see who gets a round of How Much is That Doggy in the Window? BWAHAHAHAHAHA!) LOVE YOU, VIV! Hope your day is WONDERFUL!

What a cute puppy! I hope you are able to rest this weekend. Sounds like you need it!

That little doggie is just too cute. Bless you for trying to save the kitty. Seems to me a vet would try to save the kitty and not make you pay when you aren't the owner. I know, I know, they are trying to make a living. I hope she pulls through and she finds a good home. So sad. Hope tomorrow and the week-end go well for you.
