Dottie West!

Today has been great and we rescued a dog, but before I tell you about it I want to tell you about yesterday's fun visit with Joni Daniel, the publisher of "Texas Animal Imprints," that I write a bi-monthly column for, and her dear friend Tena Rae Helm, who is now our friend, too.

Yesterday, around four-thirty, Tena Rae and Joni arrived with special cargo—Hope, Tena Rae's adorable, brown Cocker Spaniel. After howdies and hugs we went into Outer Space so we could visit, but before we sat down Joni told us that they had brought gifts for us.

First, Joni handed us a stack of Texas Animal Imprints: March/April 2011 issue with Tena Rae and her healing horse, Katy K., so we could share them with our friends and volunteers. Then from out of nowhere Joni hands us a bottle of Italian, organic Pinot Grigio and then Tena Rae gives us copies of her of her documentary, "Tena Rae Helm: Katy K" and her latest CD, "Tena Rae Helm: Embracing Every Moment" and T. and I were beside ourselves and all we could say was, "Thank y'all so much!"

After a very fun visit in Outer Space, filled with laughter, we went over to the Lodge to visit with Kinky and it was fun, too. Before the girls left to go home I took this a picture of them posing with Kinky. L-R Tena Rae, Kinky and Joni.

Much of today was spent sitting behind my laptop computer, in the kitchen, doing paperwork, as I listened to Tena Rae's beautiful CD and my favorite song on her album is the one that she wrote about her healing horse Katy K titled, "Katy K." And now I want to thank Joni Daniel and Tena Rae Helm for coming out and making yesterday special.

This afternoon we took in Dottie West, a lovable, homeless little dog, who had been picked up on the streets of Kerrville by a caring person, who then dropped her off at the Kerr County Veterinary Clinic, in hopes that they could help find her a home. Dottie is approximately one year old and she is as sweet as she can be and she is now ready to find her forever home, because of the kindness of Dr. Kim Eisenberg, D.V.M. and Amy, her vet tech, who delivered her to us, shared the expenses of spaying, worming, heart worm testing her, micro-chipping and giving her all of her shots. What great people! Here's Dottie West!

Y'all have a great evening!
