Thanks to You and to Connie

We had a good day yesterday, despite Jan running off so she wouldn't have to wait on us.  We did a lot of this.

And a little of this.  Well maybe a lot of this too. Except the poor dogs.  They don't get to graze; they get meals.  Unless they can snatch something to make a snack.

And then Jan came home and did a lot of typing to make a list of photos and info from our local Petfinder site for Connie the coordinator to send to rescues. Most of our shelter animals have very limited time.

Fortunately, she did not come home to this.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

Note from Jan:  Many thanks to ML and Zoolatry for their sneaky planning - and to each of you who stopped by yesterday to leave a birthday wish.  I will be around to thank each of you individually, but it might take a while to work through the list.  :)  Special thanks to ML for remaking our graphic to remember Cotton.  She is so missed!   I'll give the Funny Farmers back their blog now.

These are our latest local shelter pets on Petfinder.  So if you're a rescue or just an individual looking for a new pet anywhere in the Georgia area, there are some sweet adoptables on the list.  We are so happy that Connie continues to coordinate with rescues and do whatever necessary to move some animals to a new life.  She has managed to find a place for a number of cats and dogs in the few weeks she's been coordinating with Upson.  And she lives 2 1/2 hours away.  Awesome job, Connie! 


  1. I am glad you had a good day and that shelter gal is doing wonders!

  2. We think it is so great that you are helping the shelter with their pictures. That is so important. Hope you have another great day.

  3. Oh yes, we heard of the birthday... but we had problems during that time. So I'm a little late on the greeting but we do pray that your wishes be granted and you have more happy healthy years to come ^^.
