The more things change

Published 10:30am Friday, August 23, 2013

Lil Bear needs another week or so before he’s old enough for his final shots and then he’s off to Dannie Scruggs for some training, growing and super loving before his final procedure. Meanwhile, he gets some one on one with Uncle Lennie everyday, midst the ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ of Landrum vet clients.

Jollie gets the same treatment each day and elicits her fair share of ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’ herself. We feel she’s going to stay tiny, for at nearly 3 months old, she hasn’t grown much. She is a cute ball of fun and energy that would be great in a home with children and or other animals that could tolerate her perpetual motion.

At home, Dolce, Rojo’s 23-year-old younger sister, has become more loving and demanding of attention. She’s always been a loving girl, but far more aloof than her big sister. I don’t know what to make of it, but I’m quite pleased.

Do you know what I think? To paraphrase an old movie, “I think somebody up there likes me.”

Thanks for listening.
