BuffyBear's Journal, 20 February 2013

I am very sad but very relieved at the same time. It looks like a Lab Rescue Group will take the puppy. I should find out for sure tomorrow. I'll just have to trust that they will find the perfect home for him.

The SD situation is also going better. I called and talked to her yesterday and think we are on the same page. DH is just too emotional on this subject (long story) so maybe it is best to bypass him when dealing with her.

And my last bit of good news is that I had an excellent talk with my doctor this morning - about cholesterol, weight loss, etc. I have a lot of work to do but it is great to know he is willing to work with me.

Please accept my apologies for not responding to you all. I really appreciate your encouragement. So now let me go record my food for the day - while I still remember why I'm on here.

HCB - you don't understand - I'm looking for a GOOD HOME for the puppy!

Haha, you guys are funny. Fingers crossed on the SD situation that it will swing by you like one of those inclement weather situations the forecasters just get wrong. Good news about the doctor. Having someone to work WITH you makes all the differences. Sad, but happy, about the puppy.

Crossing fingers for you and the SD situation xx I'm sure the puppy will be fine and nice attitude with the doctors and step away from the Christmas leftover booze!!!

Oh Buffy I know just how you feel...it was hard to give up Oreo..but they found him a great home..with lots of loving..and I am sure the rescue people will find a good home for your puppy...he may get a job helping someone in need..that would be awesome...Like Pam and I said its your house your rules...make it clear...if she doesn't like then she can find some one else to aggravate..Have a great day..:O)

Heather - interesting comparison with the weather forecasting - LOL. And I think this doctor's visit was just the impetus I needed to get going again. Maybe 6 months from now we can compare workouts!

Tracy - I'll leave the booze alone if you will!

Bren - I hope Major can have a happy ending like Oreo. I'm just afraid he'll end up tied up in someone's back yard. That is such a cruel thing to do to such a loving dog.

Ruth - You make me realize that my problems are so minor compared to what others are going through. Thanks again.  
20 Feb 13 by member: BuffyBear
Newmooney - You are right. I don't know how I get so wallowed down in self pity over such minor incidences. Hey - maybe I just discovered the clue to my overeating!

That's how I got my mixed lab - only it was my SD that left him tied up outside. I took him and told them if they couldn't take care of an animal properly, they had no business having one. Of course, at the time, DW wasn't real fond of the idea, but I can be pretty persuasive sometimes. :) I'm sure one of those rescue groups will provide him a real good home. I think some dog owners ought to be chained up on a leash outside overnight in freezing temps to see how they like it - not that I have an opinion about that sort of thing. Leave the booze alone - unless it's to celebrate the doggie getting a good home. Have a great day!

That's great news on all fronts, Buffy! My Collie guy came to us from a breed rescue and, after that experience, I'm 100% sold on getting an animal that way. They're SO careful about who adopts their babies, big and small, because they've had to handle what bad owners can do. They've also invested lots of time, money, training, and other scarce resources on these dogs, so they want to be sure all that work is not lost. I'm sure that sweetie will get an awesome home! And, if the adopted owners' circumstances change along the way, most breed rescues contractually require that the dog be returned to them rather than being dropped off at a shelter, or worse. And....great work on making that overture to your SD!

DairyKing - But really - why not chain them outside just for one night. I think they'd get the idea!  
20 Feb 13 by member: BuffyBear
Sandy - Thank you - you don't know how much better you've made me feel!

Hi Buffy, looks like you are even busier than me. Glad things are better with your SD situation. I can relate with my SS sometimes. Nice that you found a place for the puppy. Someone loving will give him a great home you will see.
