The dogs and I had a nice Christmas Eve at home only interrupted by one meeting across town with a nice couple who were interested in my Houdini dog. If it was any other dog I might have said I was busy but since I am going out of town for a short time, he would have to stay in a crate which he hates. I took Houdini and another dog just in case they wanted another choice. They liked Houdini even after I told them about his fence jumping. They promised to keep him indoors. I am so happy that he found a home before I left. And these people don't have any other animals which is perfect for him. He can be the king of the house.
That also meant that I did not have to go buy a door for my bathroom although I had kind of decided not to do that plan because it was cold last night and I didn't want to be heating 2 rooms. Plus if he was in a room with a heater he might knock it over or chew the cord and that would be very bad. If they do return him I hope that one of the other rescue people will dog-sit until I come back.
I must say that having only 5 dogs makes the house seem empty. I actually took them for a walk today, something I haven't done in months because I had too many.
It was a nice relaxing day and I didn't do laundry even though I got around 200 gallons of water from that last storm. I decided that I can do laundry at my sister's house. Instead I slept in, cleaned, took a nap with the dogs, watched Stargate, surfed the internet, got Houdini adopted, added bleach to my water tanks, picked out some clothes to pack, dyed my hair, and now I am watching Stargate again while hanging out with the dogs. I need a whole month of days like this.
