Last Thursday we had two puppies over for visit. We knew the puppies was vaccinated and so was our dogs. Then we found out that one of the puppies passed away the day after due to Parvovirus. We pretty much knew what could come but we hoped that we could be lucky. But we were not lucky. And it went really fast! I saw the first signs yesterday morning. Wasn’t sure if it was parvovirus or the heat but got it clear in the afternoon that it was not the heat. We started treat with Gatorade, Jello and salt mix but it did not work. One puppy passed away over night, One here in the morning. Mom took two puppies to the vet this morning and the last passed away right after 1pm today.
I figured what I was facing early so I sent an email to Chief asking if I could burn some furlough hours today. I was thankful that he let me be off. I was going to be at the Highschool with Ranger today and I could go home after that.
Ranger behaved really well. I was so impressed with him. He got tired and hungry but was really good!
I found out that he needs to get used to cameras! He really don’t like them! But he liked all the attention from the students!
When I got home I got a call from the car dealer that they didn’t approve my income. I might have to return the car in the end of the week. This is just too much! First five puppies and then the car on top of that… Really not the best day! I loved the puppies, I love my car and it is just taken away from me!!! What have I done to deserve this? How can I turn this around to something positive? The weather doesn’t make it better either…
I don’t have A/C in my house so it is extremely warm. I only want some cooler temperatures and some rain but that won’t come in the near future either.
Nothing is going my way right now…
I am exhausted! I was alone at work today, hoped it would be a calm day… I was WRONG! First call…a pig was running around loose… I am not kidding… A potbelly pig! Second call… A horse running loose in another side of town! Really? I thought I worked in the city! Third call was horrible! Someone had chained a dog to the middle of the railroad track! I can tell you it was no legal driving to the scene. I got the dog off the track in the last second! Less than a minute later the train came! The dog had old injuries but nothing that needed medical attention! I was shaken up when it all was over, realizing how little that could be left of the dogs life! But she is at the shelter, doing just fine!
Yesterday a man came in to the shelter looking for his dog. It was missing for a week! But amazingly I was called out today on a stray dog and guess what I found… His dog! A happy reuniting! I got so happy!
The shelter is overfilled again! I really don’t know what to do! It is a hard challenge to get the dogs out to new homes! But I just have keep on fighting!
But Mumin got its spots today…

for some reason I think everyone will see when I am coming! I just love my Mumin!!!
The Moomin’s (spelled Mumin in Swedish) is a cartoon in Sweden and Finland written by Tove Jansson. Very nice figures, troll’s… This is the whole family:
Well, as you know I have wanted my own car for a long time and first I wanted a Smart car but then I saw a Kia Soul… Meet my own Mumin
We found an advertising about a Soul and headed to Rockwall to see if I was eligible. Well, it got a liiiiiittle bit more expensive than I wanted but still ok. So I am an owner of my own Mumin! I just love my little friend! It has standard transmission that I just love! 89% of the cars in Sweden has standard stick so that is what I am used to
Yes, Mumin will get spots sooner or later… I intend to have this car for a very long time so it will get some personalization things… Can only say, you won’t miss me…
