Helena, MT High 87 Low 53
I am having major internet connection issues. My WIFI keeps going into “limited” mode which means that I cannot use the internet. Went to the Verizon store and they put a new SIM card in for me but that didn’t help. I think it is our location.
If I do get on line it will only last for a few minutes so I don’t have much time to read blogs or comment.
We lost Scooter this morning (but we finally found her). She loves to chase rabbits and chipmunks and lizards and mice and all kinds of critters but squirrels just put her over the top. She spotted one this morning out my window and went berserk. Jim got dressed and let her out. By this time the squirrel was long gone.
The minute Jim opened the door, Scooter took off and never looked back. She’s never done that before. Jim hollered for me to come help him. I was still in my nightgown but only took the time to put on my shoes. We spent a half an hour calling and looking everywhere for her. Finally found her in one of the neighbor’s back yard.
I really was concerned because this road below us is a major highway and very busy. When she got in the house she drank a bunch of water and just flopped by the water dish and didn’t move.
Yesterday, when we were getting out of the truck, this sweetheart came bounding up to us with her tongue hanging almost to the ground. I am so glad she had her collar on with a name (Hailey) and a phone number.
We got her some water and she just plopped down with her paws on each side of the bowl and drank and rested and then drank some more. Called the number and her owner came to get her immediately. He’s a young guy who lives with two other guys on the other side of the highway and down a ways. He had left her with his roommate and he was on his way home to have a LONG discussion with this roommate about his dog. She was such a love but you could sure tell she was a guy’s dog. I sat and held her on one of our leashes but her eyes never left Jim. And when she heard her owner’s voice, she about went nuts. So glad we found her.
This is the only picture for this blog because I want to be able to get it posted before I lose my connection for the 50th time today.
