Why is it that you never have your video camera when you need it? A few nights ago, company had come and gone and we were chillin' before bed. Bob was sitting on one of the couches licking his front paw. Somehow, he managed to step on his tongue. The funny part is, he couldn't figure out how to get his tongue loose. Here he is standing on his tongue, trying to tug it loose while it stretches to an unreal length. That could have been on America's Funniest Home Videos.
This time four weeks ago, our little Bridgett was still living a terrible life. Now, she's a vibrant little friend. Her personality has blossomed and she's ready for her forever home. When she came she couldn't figure out how to exit an open door,walk on a leash, or play. Now, she's just one of our pack taking walks with our dogs, playing with her "baby doll" and chewing on bones. She can go from rambunctious fireball to lap dog in 1.6 seconds. We'll miss her when the right family comes along.

Three weeks ago today I took possession of a scared, underfed little lemon beagle named Bridgett. She had been rescued from the man who owned her who tied to a tree with no dog house. She was un-spayed at the time and was allowed to breed with any dog that came along. When she had pups (just before she came to us) the man killed them and left her with milk. He was planning to kill her too when the neighbors talked him into letting them have her.
They brought her to the ARK of Cleveland, where I volunteer, swarming with fleas, full of milk and hungry. She was given a flea dip and bath, then taken to our vet to be vaccinated and spayed. When I picked her up at the vet, she was scared and confused, but as sweet as pie. I let her rest for several days, intro. her to my three dogs and she started to come to life.
She's been with us long enough for me to absolutely fall in love with her. It will be bittersweet to see her go to her forever home. They will be a lucky family to have Bridgett. Good girl!
