First off, I want to thank our super volunteer, June, for coming out this morning, with her friend Jim, who has now become a dedicated volunteer dog walker! The two walked several dogs for us today—and our dogs absolutely loved it! Thank you June and Jim! We can't wait for y'all to come back out!

This afternoon around three o'clock, Tony and I went to Hoegemeyer's Animal Clinic, to pick up our latest rescue— the sweet, little, eight pound, Chihuaha mix! She is an absolute doll! We named her in honor of our friend, Kathleen Keen, Robert Earl's wife, because we ran into her at the vet clinic! We had a fun visit with her, and the staff, Dr. Rydberg and Susan, the receptionist aka their best girl Friday!

Then we left Hoegemeyer's Clinic, so we could get back to the rescue ranch, in time for Mr. Ziffel's arrival. Unfortunately, Ziffel's trial adoption didn't work out, because Terrie and Ray's other two rescued dogs—wanted no part of him—he was not welcomed. Terrie and Ray were sick about it, because they had fallen in love with our Z-man, as does everyone who meets him!

Little Kathleen Keen rode back to the rescue ranch—sitting on my lap, as she looked out the window! After Tony had fixed up her temporary puppy pen, we came inside the trailer to unpack our groceries, etc.

At five-thirty, our good friends, Terrie and Ray arrived with our Mr. Ziffel, who seemed glad to be back home! "Please don't feel bad about it not working out," I said. "I promise you, that he will go to his forever home within the next two weeks—it always happens like this. Please think of it as giving Mr. Ziffel, a great vacation from the rescue ranch."

"Nancy, we are sick about returning him," Terrie said. "In fact, our son wanted us to get rid of our other two dogs, so we could keep him!"

Today, I have posted my first video for my blog! It is not very professional, but I promise to get better, once I learn the ropes—I promise! To checkout Churchill's crowing troubles:

I hope it makes you laugh! Y'all have a great evening! We're fixin' to!

I'd bet a Pint that Rooster is from Glasgow, he's rolling his "R's" for God's sake!! LOL! That is the funniest crow I've ever heard from a Rooster before.
The video is a great addition to your blog, love it!

P.S. Sorry to hear about the Zed-man, but I think you're right: he'll soon find his forever home!
