Mellow, made in the shade day....
What a beautiful day! It was cool for the tropics, all the animals were calm, check-in was smooth and everyone was in fine form.
Anne may have had a little different experience. She arrived early in the dark, Nena's taxi was waylaid and Kenny came late too...but she made it smooth for the rest of us - thanks Anne.
La Palma had a spay and neuter clinic of their own sponsored by DIF so instead of 6 regular appointments there were only 2. That's ok - we're so glad for the help.
We treated 5 cats - two were pregnant, and 9 dogs, from a tiny grey terrier to a grande tan female.
Trini came in with 2 young pups she rescued in SC. She saw a plastic bag moving in the garbage and discovered them inside. Once fed, they spent the day napping and being pampered. Jenny bathed them and took them home to foster until she finds a forever home for them...what a miracle for those two - from a life of no heart to grand heart. A lesson in what a day can hold - thank you, Trini and Jenny for changing their fate.
Dr. B and Amaranth were dressed to celebrate Halloween and why not?
Anne and Amaranth prepared lunch a day ahead - couscous, stewed vegetables, salad and sourdough. We sat around the table with rollicking pups under our feet in the shade of our tropical courtyard - one big multi-species family... mellow...
Thanks everyone - working together as friends makes the work a pleasure.
Thank you Dr. B, Ana, Kenny, Anne, Nena, Trini, Amaranth, Jenny, Giles and Wally.
