I have a new project

I come into work tonight, and immediately directed toward the incubator by Jamie and Dr. Harris. Inside, a little teeny baby chihuahua puppy. This is the point at which i fawn and drool and gush over the itty bitty puppy of my favorite breed ever.

Then comes the catch.

"It needs a home. Or it needs to be put to sleep."

Now, while that is horribly manipulative, I will give them credit for knowing exactly how to manipulate me. I can't put a fixable pup to sleep. That's how I ended up with Muneca last year.

The pup isn't totally healthy. It's got an upset tummy and won't eat. It's hypoglycemic, so I'm having to give it a glucose supplement every couple hours. It has coccidia (an internal parasite). These are resolvable problems, but it's going to take some intensive nursing for a while.

I am under strict order from my mother to not take on any more foster projects.She thinks they take up too much of my time and money. But my mom can go blow herself, this is a baby chihuahua. I cannot put it to sleep. Absolutely not.

Now, after i make this a healthy puppy, i have to find a home for it ...

anyone want a chihuahua? I'll post pics when I get home wednesday ... he's a cute little rottweiler-print black and tan.

Michael came by my work earlier, and spun me around by my feet while I was sitting on a little chair, causing me to fall off the chair and land on my back on the floor. Nice, eh? But he felt so bad, so i couldn't get too mad. And he brought me chex mix.

I'm dying for some quality time with him ... but we're so busy ... our days off don't match up. so i take what i can get ... i'm greedy.

my sweetie, he treats me well. :)

TC before work ... took some pictures, hung out with Lisa and Season and Brett and Michael and Andy and Kelly and Beth. Shaun was there with hookah, and i finally got a chance to try it out ... strawberry in, mint out. nice.
I was happy to see Season ... she's fun to talk to. Even when in a misanthropic mood. Lisa too ... I like that girl despite her issues. I guess she wouldn't be the same Lisa without them.

Tomorrow, I've got the lj-meetup to go to. At least a couple people will be there who's company I enjoy, so it will be a nice little different thing. And I get pie.

I may have to smuggle this pup in with me, since he's too little to be left in the crate in the car. Maybe I'll set up a bed in my backpack or something.

    Sometimes you have to go 2000 miles to get to the one. So worth it. Posted via LiveJournal app for iPhone.

    It's already getting wild out here, and I've completely re-evaluated my definition of "behaving myself". All the fun. Posted via LiveJournal…

  • everything came together perfectly

    I'm in Nashville. In my beautiful house, with all my wonderful animals, and i'm in love with the man sleeping with his head on my lap right now.…
