First of all I’d like to personally thank the fire personnel that are out there on the line fighting these horrible fires. I wish I could help, but I have asthma. Smoke and me don’t mix. You folks out there in this heat and winds; I hope our county is taking care of you guys and gals. You deserve all that is good in your life because that is what you give fighting these fires. You give your all to save folks you don’t even know. Bless You.
I have a real hard time knowing that there are animals out there that cannot escape and are dying in these fires. I love critters, they keep me going when I want to give up and throw in the towel, which I think about now and then. A critter will show up that needs attention, like my Joey Cannoli likes to get rubbed or scratched behind his ears. I forget all about myself petting him or feeding the Fish Heads, one and two. There is nothing like splattering fish poop in your eye first thing in the morning while cleaning an aquarium. I could almost swear the Fish Heads are laughing at me, little Bass turds. I mean Beta turds.
On FRYday when I was walking back from the doctor’s office, I saw an older white Lab lying next to a homeless gal in her 50’s in front of CVS. She had a grocery cart with a little plastic in it. I don’t normally give out money unless I know someone and I have money, which I don’t. But there was that beautiful older doggie and I’d rather feed her than myself. So I gave the woman a few bucks to feed her dog. I had no doubt she would feed the dog because, though they were most likely homeless, or maybe poor, the dog looked healthier than the woman.
Right after I wrote about how Joey Cannoli likes a good rub, he came in here. He must have been reading over my shoulder, little snot.
The animal rescue teams are out there too, rescuing all the wild life they can from these fires. I’m pretty sure they could use some help, please give them a call and volunteer. Thank you.
