What a week! If you caught my post on Monday, last weekend wasn’t the best. Monday was actually kind of a blur. I got a call from the lady that adopted Sophie almost as soon as I got to work to let me know that they were going to go search another area that they thought she might be. Nobody had seen her since Saturday afternoon when she first ran away but they thought that she would be in a wooded area & away from people/traffic.
I was worried sick almost all day & even cried to my co-worker when I told her what happened. She even cried a little because she’s heard all of my stories about Sophie for as long as we’ve had her! And then I get a call around 4:45.
SOPHIE WAS FOUND!
Anita called me right after she got a call from animal control saying that they had Sophie. OH MY GOODNESS, what a huge relief!! I was so happy that I cried. And my same co-worker also cried because she heard me on the phone & came over to my cubicle right away. I still don’t know for sure where they found her but she was picked up by the animal control in Raytown (where she ran away) so she didn’t get too far. She spent the night at the vet & was able to go home the next morning. I got some videos of her at her new home & she acts like nothing ever happened! That dog…. haha. She handled her heartworm treatment & spay surgery like a champ so it shouldn’t surprise me that she’s perfectly fine after being out in nature for 2 days. It sounds like she is fitting in nicely with her new mom & Beagle sister! I’m excited to see how she progresses!
We’re taking a quick break from fostering for now. Mostly because we won’t be around after next week so we didn’t want to take in another one & then have to try to find someone to watch it for a week & a half.
In other news…… six more work days until a week & a half vacation. HALLELUJAH. 🙂 It has been far too long since I’ve taken any extended time off from work. Actually. it’s been a year— our wedding! I’m trying to keep up with everything at work so I don’t have a lot to come back to. That has been the biggest deterrent for taking a vacation lately. Everyone in the office is pretty swamped thanks to being short staffed so there doesn’t seem to be a lot of coverage when people are gone. Which means coming back to a TON of work. I think it took me a good week or so to catch up after our wedding last summer!
This week really hasn’t been anything too special. I’m ready for a day to SLEEP as I think I’m still catching up on the last several weeks from Sophie wanting to party all night. This weekend looks like it will be pretty crummy, weather-wise. Cold & rainy! At least Sunday looks like it will be nice. I think we are going to help out with the rescue for an event in Benson during the afternoon so that should be fun. Have a great weekend everyone!
