Oh boy! Haven’t seen this kind of a storm for months! The only light in the middle of the day seems to come from the lightning strikes! At the salt marsh poor Mama Sandy is trying to cover her new hatchling(s) from the showers and the wind.
But the salt marsh needs the rain. There will be a new freshness in the air, the carpet of pollen will be gone, and the water levels will be high for everyone to enjoy, like in this picture from last year.
But this weather also brought something wonderful into our home. Little Dylan came to us from Florida Poodle Rescue (thank you ❤ ) yesterday. He is a darling little guy, loving, friendly to everyone, and good mannered. He is what they call a “phantom poodle” because of his multi-colored coat. But I can assure you he is very real, 12 pounds of sweetness. We are privileged to be able to provide him his new forever home.
Dylan has already made my office his favorite room to relax in, and I’m sure by time he’ll be contributing to the blog too. He already likes to sit in my lap and read your blogs 🙂
And boy, is he a good walker. Or maybe I should say runner. This girl will be in good shape in no time! No more 10 hour shifts in front of the computer whatever the work situation.
When he was found, his hair was very long – probably longer than my ponytail, and it was seriously matted. But after 4 hours of work by a wonderful FPR volunteer, and a huge heap of hair on the floor, he already looks representable. Next week he’ll meet his groomer for the first time and get cleaned up a bit more.
And although he is a healthy boy and up to date on all his shots, I will soon take him to say hello to the same great team in the vet’s office who took such good care of Bumble for years. We need to get him “established” in his new life, right?
I just wanted to bring you the good news. And I’m sure Dylan will make me post more often too. Maybe he’ll even gang up with my poetry muse so you’ll see more of those short posts in the future. One never knows with dogs.
We wish you a great weekend and a beautiful week ahead.
