Weekend Recap

Holy shit, y’all, where has this weekend gone?!  I seriously feel like I just left the office and here I am winding down in PJs at 9:30 on Sunday night!  It’s been a pretty hectic two days, but it’s all of my own doing.  I was too much of a “yes” woman for this weekend!

A friend and co-worker asked if I would work for him Saturday so he could take off to go to his boy’s baseball tournament in Nashville.  YES #1

Another friend asked if I could dog-sit for her while she went to Knoxville for the weekend.  YES #2  I paid for that one.  lol  Gnash hadn’t been here 10 minutes before he discovered a mudhole in our back yard and proceeded to be a bad influence on my dogs and show them how much fun it is to wallow in mudholes.

Last week a lady involved in dog rescue pulled a bloodhound from our local shelter after she’d secured him a spot with a bloodhound-specific rescue.  He had to get to his trainer on Sunday so she could work with him for a while on some issues before sending him to that rescue.  I was asked to transport him to his trainer on Sunday.  YES #4.  And sort of related to that one, a couple of weeks ago I moved a nursing momma dog and her 12 puppies to a foster about an hour and a half from here because their elderly owner needed help with the puppies but they were too young to be separated from momma.  He has surrendered the puppies to rescue, and now they are weaned and momma was ready to come home.  Soooooo I was asked if I could come get her and take her back to her owner.  YES #5

Sweet pretty momma…who will never be a momma again! The rescue her puppies were surrendered to will be paying for her spay as soon as her milk dries up. Sometimes rescue can be as much about helping the owner as helping the dogs.

And Sunday afternoon after I finished hauling dogs all over West TN, D and I did this!

No more mud hole!  We had been saying for a while that we needed to do something like this because it got really trampled down this winter and has been getting really muddy when it rains, but the dogs’ Friday afternoon shenanigans lit a fire under our asses.  haha  And all the dogs were a big help, as they always are with yard projects…

I hope everyone’s weekend was as beautiful as ours!  We all soaked it up because it’s supposed to rain for the next seven days!  Thank goodness we got our stones down before THAT!
