I received one funny e-mail from Ellen and I want to share it with you.
"A great blog! That may be my 2 minutes of fame. Wish you could have been there. The poor little guy
is scared of everything. If he was a "fear biter," we would be doomed. Culvert came out to extend "the glad paw of fellowship and Sandy hid behind my legs while Cully sniffed his back leg. He has finally quit trembling, just still pants a lot. He has sniffed Twinky's bum, but she doesn't know what to make of a dog that won't take charge and make decisions. They mill around together, but no play behavior yet. I think it will take 2 or 3 more days for him to relax enough for that. His aunt June came over for dinner and to help me help him settle in. She covered his head with kisses and we both petted and scratched and told him what a good, brave boy he is. We went in the house to get a glass of wine and when June went back out on the porch, I heard, "OMG, he's gone!" By the time I got to the door, we saw that he had stuffed himself into a soft sided kennel I had put on the porch for the cats. It's his safe place and that's where he spent the night. The other 2 cats have not been interested in making his acquaintance. This morning I had to hook up the leash to coax him out of his safe place and had a love fest while I drank my coffee....so far, so good.
I think Sandy is the luckiest dog to have someone as kind, gentle and patient as Ellen and so does Kinky and Tone. Thank you, Ellen! Here are three pictures of Sandy with Twinky and in his safe place:
Last week I received an e-mail from Craig Slovak our new friend and the General Manager at Republic Harley Davidson in Stafford, Texas. He wanted to invite me to their Grand Opening of their Kinky Friedman Cigar store that Kinky will be at on April 8th from 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm but as y'all know I won't be attending because of my fear of big cities.
I'm going into Outer Space with Tone for Happy Hour. Good luck, Ellen! We've got our fingers crossed for Sandy!
Y'all have a great evening!
