I haven't been here since Prom?? So neglectful... Allow me to summarize
It's not really that I've been super busy. Just wrapping up some end-of-(school)-year things when it comes to tutees and our own kids. Oh, and we decided to become a foster home for retired racing greyhounds. We got our first foster today!
This is Sierra
We picked her up this morning in lovely Fort Lupton, Colorado. As you can see, our Prom snow has been replaced by summer. There were six dogs in all in this particular "haul".
They've all been cat tested and (supposedly) Sierra passed. We're wondering just what sort of cat they use to test dogs for cat friendliness? I can just picture these tough cats sitting around the bar:
"So, what do you do for a living?"
"I test hunting hounds that run over 40 miles per hour for cat friendliness, you?"
Napolion has yet to be properly introduced, however, since at first sight, he took off. At second sight, Sierra didn't even notice him. Yeah, some hunter.
In summary, she's about fifty pounds of muscle and awesome, but more to come later.
Chaco came over to meet the pooch, hung around for lunch, then headed out, hoping not to get caught in an afternoon rainstorm. He was on his bicycle.
A little while later, I got a text from him:
"I just got hit by a car."
Okay, kids, a word of advice. Don't text your mother, "I just got hit by a car" then no response to further inquiries.
I did eventually get ahold of him. He'd sent that first text from the urgent care, and then was busy being an urgent care visitor. Anyway, he's fine. It was a very low speed crash - guy said he didn't see Chaco and turned right at an intersection... that Chaco was in. Chaco didn't even want to go to urgent care, but the driver made him go.
He SHOULD have contacted police, but, in his words, "I didn't want it to be a thing, 'cause I've got other things to do today..."
*sigh* At least he didn't get caught in a rainstorm.
