Hank, Please Get Off Of Me!

This morning, I woke up with Hank, sleeping on top of my lower back! Hank only weighs about twenty pounds, he is twelve years old, and exactly what my back didn't need! Ouch! When I crawled out of bed—my back was in worse shape than yesterday! I could barely feed our dogs this morning, because bending over to set down dog food bowls—nearly brought tears to my eyes—and we have six dogs and a cat! Fortunately, Lucky, our cat eats on the drain board! Then I called my dear friend, Cindy P., to cancel my two hour horseback ride with her today. I really wanted to go, but my lower back said no way, and I listened.

When Tony came home, breakfast as usual, was not ready, "Tone, I am out of supplies—let's go to Kerrville and eat at Randy and Lisa's Save Inn Restaurant, then swing by Wolfmueller's to pick up some more copies of my book, and then get groceries at the HEB?"

T. was hungry and said, "Sounds good to me. Let's go, Nance. I'm starving." Buttermilk, Tone and I went to Kerrville, while Aaron and Ben fed our dogs and cleaned their pens.

Breakfast was delicious at The Save Inn, as always, Tone and I enjoyed our quick visit with Sandy and Jon at Wolfmuellers Books, and shopping at the HEB didn't take nearly as long as it usually does! We were on a roll and came home!

After we put up our groceries, I filled out the adoption paperwork, for our two adorable Poodles, Muffy and Max! Lana was coming to adopt them around three-thirty! Then I went outside and took pictures of Tom Landry and Sam for our web site. Tone and Ben helped me take pictures of them.

Then we went into Outer Space, to catch up with each other's news. Around one o'clock, our dear friend, and great volunteer dog walker, Carol V., drove up! She had just gotten back from a three week vacation in Costa Rica! We invited her into Outer Space! Carol went into Outer Space!

The four of us had a really fun visit! Carol left around three o'clock, but before leaving, Tony, Ben, Carol and I agreed to go down to Port A. together, real soon, to visit our good friends John, Rick and Leisa, and Kelly and Pete! We are hoping to get down there in early February! Wish us luck! I can't wait—it will be so much fun!

At three-thirty, Tony and Ben took off to go check on the cows. Lana, showed up at the rescue ranch at three-thirty-two, to adopt our two precious Poodles—Muffy and Max—Maxwell Smart! The Poodles love Lana—it was a great adoption!

Ben and I went over to the Lodge, and told Kinky about Muffy and Max and he was thrilled with our news! Y'all have a great evening! Here are pictures of Sam and Lana with her two new best friends!

Nance, who is the black Lab? Is that Sam who was returned because of his owner's back surgery? He's one handsome dog!
