Good news all around
This little girl was running the streets in front of our house yesterday. I had never seen her before, and she was very skittish, so I had to apply dog psychology to catch her. I am sure this looked really funny: I lay down in the driveway (in the pollen), in my pajamas. She was still not interested in me, so I made clucking noises, and she ran right over to me. I have found, in my dog rescue escapades, that "playing dead" or "playing prey" (running the OPPOSITE direction) is the best way to capture a lost dog. It just works! Anyway, she had a collar on and a phone number on her tag, so she was reunited with her mom-person. Mom-person had left the house to go for a swim at the local pool, and her hubby must have left a door open on accident. Poor little pup could have been snatched or hurt. The mom-person said she had another small dog snatched by a hawk. Oh my, I am just glad this little girl is safe again!
And my SEWEZI table is here! It went together like a dream and fits my Bernina perfectly! I am so glad to have an internet order arrive as promised (I was losing faith in internet commerce)! Of course, it was delivered by Fed Ex.
ALSO, hubby got on the phone with the car dealership, and, it turns out, no one had checked the warranty on my car, so the repair was reduced from $1250 to $155. Wow, can you say "happy dance?"
