EMMIE MAKES A NEW FRIEND

21 SEPTEMBER 2017


Waiting for a new friend to come visit . . .

Ph


This has become a favored
"look out spot" for Emmie.
In one direction,
she can monitor who
comes in the front door;
in the other,
she can see if there's
an alligator in the pool
or a deer in the yard
(both unlikely,
but she continues to hope;
this IS florida, after all!).

Jackie with two of her recent rescues . . .

. . . Service Dog SWEETEA on Jackie's left,
and PANHANDLE BONNY, both waiting for skritches.

(And in the background is a "Rescued" flamingo planter that CRUSA volunteer
CHARLOTTE ANDERSON [@RB] gave me when I first came to Florida in 2015.
Little did we know I would still be here two yaers later, permanently.)


My nominee for "Funny Face of the Day" . . .

Ph

. . . Patricia Yarnot, with CRUSA Rescue DAISY2LEGS (in yellow)
and CRUSA Rescue HEATHER (in orange)

Ph

Heather is telling Patricia all about Hurricane Irma,
which Patricia & Henry missed entirely;
their three Cairns, CRUSA Rescue Booker,
ZOOEY & Bailey (f/k/a BUSTER BROWN)
slept thru the storm right on that couch and that chair,
along with the Skrenninger Six-Pack.


Back in her favored spot . . .

Ph

Emmie waits to get some o' that attention from her new friend.


Soon, the game of Musical Dogs begins,
and everyone gets a chance to love on every dog . . .

Ph

. . . (except for ZOE, who has no interest in skritches at all;
but her head has to be in the middle of everything anyway),
'cause there might be . . . FOOD!

Ph

Patricia and her
"Handsome Man",
RICOBADBOY,
whom I'd never pick up,
but who lets her do whatever
she wants.

She still won't take him
home with her, tho!

Ph


Daisy is Jackie's
favorite, but don't
tell the others!

Ph

I don't know who was more content, Patricia or Emmie . . .

Ph

. . . but knowing she was in good hands among friends . . .

Ph

. . . Emmie fell asleep.


The next day, Dr. Hathaway writes:

Emmie's blood work results show that overall things look great!

She does have some mild "inflammatory changes"
which I suspect is consistent with her current skin status.
These changes include her increased neutrophils (WBC),
decreased hematocrit (RBCs), inc globulins and thus
increased total protein and her decreased thyroid.

Her kidneys and liver look great and her heartworm test
fecal/tick-borne diseases were all negative.

I recommend continuing to treat her skin and
best would be to recheck these changes one-two months
after fixing her skin to ensure they are all truly normal.

BOB ANDERSON:
Great news about Emmie! What a fun day you had. Rico was a little gentleman - probably just to show you . . .

Looks like she fits right in with the rest of the gang.
