Whew. It's been nice not going anywhere or doing anything. I've been exhausted and trying to regroup. I think I'm almost back to normal. Well okay as normal as I can be. Wednesday (11/2) we had to take Bruno to the vet for some shots. I rode a long. We all walked over to the kennels where the lost and found dogs are. There was one pretty guy but he was a boy and very noisy. Geez. But there was a sweet little girl on the end with sweet eyes and she was quiet but attentive. She wasn't available for adoption until Thursday.
Thursday 11/3, David took me to lunch at Hecho en Texas in Cameron. The BBQ was good. I'd go back. Then we went to vote. It's so much easier to vote early. Then we drove through the country. David wanted to show me the Cameron garden and some other sights he found while I was gone. Driving we found this old bridge. Pretty cool looking but my photo doesn't do it justice. It had a cactus growing on it.
After this we went to check out the girl dog at the kennel and we were too late. Someone adopted her first thing that morning.
Sunday 11/6, after David helped Kaleb with some furniture hauling, David and I went to look at a playmate for Bruno. David saw a post for a part Lab and Australian Shepherd that needed a home. She was a pretty girl. Guess what Bruno has a playmate, her name is Sadie. She's adorable. While Bruno likes a playmate he's like the older sibling who got a baby sister and wants to know when it will go home. He doesn't like having to share his humans, their love or attention, And he doesn't like to share his toys. LOL The toys have been at the house for 10 years+ but they're his.
This is Sadie in her 10x10 kennel where she was living. And her in the car coming home with us to her forever home.
Saturday (11/19) David had to be home for the guys that were coming to clean out/off all the dead trees at the bottom of the property. He was worried that it wouldn't take much of a spark from the train track behind the property to start a fire. Plus he found out 2 of our trees on the East fence line were dead.
There is a fence separating our property from the railroad but there were areas of the fence that the wild hogs could get under so we built a fence out in front of it to keep the hogs off our property. It was cheaper than ripping down the old fence and pulling out the vines and trees that have grown into the fence. Now the area is cleaned off I wish we could move the new fence back several feet. Oh well. We'll be planting some new trees down there to buffer the noise from the highway and the railroad. It's gonna be our nature preserve area of sorts.
