When gave Tony his Utopia Animal Rescue Ranch tag number to Tony, he called the owners and found out the woman was in the hospital recovering from major surgery. Anyway, long story short and sweet—she's doing fine and O'Henry is back home.
This morning at 7:45, I called Harley Belew, at the radio station, so I could do my weekly Utopia segment on The Harley Show. It was a lot of fun and Betty Rubble was Harley's Pet of the Week.
After having breakfast with Tony, he went outside to do our chores, because I had to go to the Medina Community Library aka "The Best Little Library In Texas," to bring Mary Ellen some props for them to display to help advertise my very first book signing for my new novella, The Cowgirl Sisterhood: The Membership Drive, Part I, scheduled for Saturday morning, February 23rd from 10:30 - 12:00.
When I got back home Carlton had two messages for me. One from Kinky and the other from our friend Marguerite, who adopted Enzo from us a few years ago. I called Marguerite first. She told me that when she had read my blog about the adorable one-eyed, thirteen-weeks-old, Heeler/Beagle puppy. And that she could not quit thinking about him. She had even dreamed about him and last night when she dreamed about trying to help a little one-eyed boy—she knew she had to adopt our puppy.
"Last night Tony named the precious pup, Clyde. I told him that it was fine, but his official name would be Clyde Kadiddlehopper, which of course dates me back to The Red Skelton Show..." When Marguerite and I adios-ed each other around 12:00, I said, "Tony, we're meeting Marguerite, at Hoegemeyer Animal Clinic, in forty-five minutes, because she wants to adopt Clyde!" And fifteen minutes later we took off in Buttermilk with our/her precious cargo.
When we arrived five minutes late at Hoegemeyer's, Marguerite was inside the lobby visiting with Susan. When Tony handed Clyde to his new best friend, Clyde began wagging his tail wildly, while licking and kissing her face, so I snapped this picture of them, because I don't know who was more happier, Marguerite, Clyde, Susan or us.
