Welcome Dag

So as you've all probably already seen on the Storm Ridge page, Dag (formerly Darton) has come to live with us and become a show puppy. We drove Saturday to meet with Keith and Jo to pick up this wonderful boy and none of us were disappointed. Dag is fitting in just fine and Jasmine thinks it's her long lost brother. All these two have done for the last couple days was to play, wrestle and play some more. We are so happy to see these two doing so well and we are so thankful of Keith and Jo.
With out further ado, Jasmine and Dag.. and my attempt at stacking Dag all by myself, thank god for camera timers.

Dag, this is how you play tug with the raccoon.
Dag minus his head :)

Happy Valentines Day!

Jasmine and I want to wish everyone a Happy Valentines day!

She is celebrating by spending her day working on a Peanut butter filled bone and playing with the kitties. We have two extra kitties in the house now as I'm a sucker for kittens and a sucker for special needs too.
Teeter and Totter, as they're named, are two 6 month old FIV + kittens, who are awaiting their new forever home and until then they can live here. I love how when I tell people that they have FIV (including my husband) they become very concerned that my other two cats will become infected. Honestly it's hard to transfer FIV unless your cats fight and draw blood. When I was a kid we had a FIV + cat who lived with 3 other cats and no one else ever became positive, so as long as your kitties don't fight you have nothing to worry about. FIV cats do have a tendency to have a decreased immune system, think HIV in humans, so I make sure that they get supplements and a very good diet. I feel very blessed to give these kittens a healthy and happy home until they can find a home of their own. Jasmine might be a little sad when they leave as she is enjoying cuddling with them, she really does love her kitties.
On another note I am happy to say that my good friend Mia has finally opened her Bakery in my home town. She has constantly been bringing treats for us at work and now I can finally go get some myself whenever I want. :) YUM. She specializes in cakes for special occasions, birthdays, weddings, parties etc, and they are amazingly delicious. If I lived closer I would be much fatter because I would eat there every day. If you would like to check out her bakery here is her website. http://www.northwestcustomcakes.com/
Well off to go do some cleaning up after kitties and feed the wild birds. Maybe the birds will keep the kitties occupied enough to stay out of stuff.

The title says it all. I honestly think that tonight couldn't be any more boring at work. Not that that is a bad thing, I mean me being bored at work means that all of the kritters in the town are safe and healthy at home but boy does it make for a boring night. Normally I have my book or my bag of entertainment to keep me busy for 14 hours but alas, I ran out the door last night with out it and am starting to get a little stir crazy. Atleast I remembered my dinner :)
Thankfull Jasmine always comes to work so we've been working on heeling, stupid dog tricks, playing fetch, searching for treats and well trying not to fall asleep. We've also been sitting here reading the paper, the random magazines, blogs and wishing more people were awake at 3 in the morning. I guess I should get back to doing.... well nothing as staff start to show up again in a 1/2 hour. YAY civilization!
