Unbeknownst To Tony!

Today has been a very productive day for me! I am not going to bore you with the details, but I am now totally caught up with all of my rescue ranch work! Yeah!

By nine-thirty this morning—I had walked eight fast miles, with Leslie and her smiling team of walkers! I had only planned on walking five miles, but I was feeling strong, so I did her four fast miles DVD—twice! When I told Tony, he gave me one of those looks, again—that is the opposite of the happy face. "Nance, please don't go over doing it, now," Tone said, and then he hugged me. "I'm just worried that you are going to hurt yourself, and I don't want you getting hurt. Okay?" He's so sweet!

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I am happy to report that our super volunteers, June, and her friend, Jim, came out this morning! While Jim walked many of our dogs—June was busy grooming, and handing out treats to them! Our dogs love those two, and so do we! Thank you, June and Jim, for taking the time, to come out and work with our dogs, and make them more adoptable!

This afternoon, while T. was painting his office, inside our trailer, I took Maggie, and then Happy—for a walk—unbeknownst to Tony. It's another one of my secrets. I'm sure if he had known what I was up to outside, while he was brush stroking the walls—he would have gotten upset with me, again.

Well, fingers crossed—it looks like Mr. Ziffle is getting adopted tomorrow! A man called me this early this evening, to ask if we still had Zifferman. He told me that he was friends with Ingrid and George, the couple, who adopted Ziff's sister, Biscuit, and he wanted to adopt Mr. Z.—if we still had him. The man is driving down from Austin tomorrow, with his other dog. He told me, if Mr. Ziffle and his dog get along—he will adopt Ziff! Please keep your fingers crossed for Z-Dog! And, I am not going to tell Kinky about Mr. Ziffle—until it is a done deal.

That is about all of the news here. I am fixin' to watch a movie with Tony. Y'all have a great evening!

Oh! Fingers crossed for the Zed-man! I know Kris Kristofferson was not perfect, but, he is perfect for us. He has these quirky things he does, unbelievable actually, which make us all laugh and somehow he fits in perfectly with us! Not sure who that's kudos too, him or us, but we love him like crazy. Here's to Mr. Ziffle that he finds his cat-free forever family too ; ))
