Too long

since I posted.
Con has gone to camp and returned....she had a great time! Thanks to everyone who bought beads on Etsy for the camp fund!

We've had several bad thunderstorms that have messed up the phone lines, although the phone company can't seem to find anything wrong on their side of it. Rather frustrating, but at least the problem has somehow mended itself. We have a central switchboard here in town and I think they run over there and hit the reset button, then do the service calls, since things work beautifully for them that didn't work for us five minutes earlier.

The neighbor came over this evening to tell me that he found a dead baby bunny on his lawn this morning and would I please keep my bunnies in at night so he doesn't have to see this again......I really couldn't think of anything to say. My yard is fenced, and the babies don't leave, they aren't big enough to wander far from home. I've come out in the morning to feed and water and all three of his cats go sailing over my fence from the area of the bunny pen.

I'm not often speechless, but this time I was. It's probably a good thing.

Bad news

Well, bad news about the puppy, she had a little fit two days ago and her tiny tongue turned white, so we rushed her to the vet. By the time we got there, she was much improved, licking my chin and otherwise being adorable.
The doc took a look at her anyway and discovered she has a cleft palate, which he seems to think means I should put her down.
I was very discouraged at first, especially with Connie crying in the background as I was trying to talk to him. But, we've gotten her through three weeks with a bottle, not knowing there was a problem, so I'm going to keep going. I've found several websites that suggest a. these can heal at 10-12 weeks of age, and b. some people have kept dogs with this problem and they have a happy life. The main thing seems to be that they have to eat hard dog food all their life, but that probably isn't the end of the world.

So, we're going to keep on, and see what happens....maybe later on have we'll have a special bead sale for surgery if it turns out that we need it.
