Today I'll let you know a few thoughts I have about chocolate. But first, it's time to say goodbye to Snickers. She obviously fits in this word category because of her name. And because she's as sweet as candy. (ooh, isn't that sticky sweet!). Today I'll be taking Snickers to her new family. They seem to be a very nice young couple with another dog that looks like a large version of Snickers herself. I understand they will be changing her name to Daisy. That's a sweet name too. This couple met Snickers last week at PetCo and walked her around the store with their dog Gracie. They loved her, so they filled out the application, got a great recommendation from their vet, and were approved. I met them yesterday at a local dog park and the dogs played together well. Today we'll be meeting at another park where Hope Rescues has an adoption event going on. (That way I don't have to deal with the money; they can pay Hope directly!) Then I'll watch Snickers go off into the sunset. Ok, not sunset, but off to be with her new family.
We'll be getting a new foster dog sometime soon. But first we'll take a little break and work on Ginger's issues (barking and fear-biting).
So, chocolate. I do love chocolate. You know that stereotypical chocoholic woman? The one for whom you'd buy a tea towel with some sort of "chocolate is better than sex" saying on it. Well, that's me. Minus the tea towel, as no one has ever given me one. I have gotten cards about chocolate. And I've gotten chocolate as gifts. The thing that sucks is that I'm a diabetic. And, as you learned from my previous post, I have issues with food. So if someone gives me a lot of chocolate, I usually eat it all. And if it happens to be sugar-free, I'll eat it then be in horrible pain, with horrible gas and have horrible, well, let's not go there.
What more can I say? I could go into the history of chocolate, or the manufacturing of chocolates. There's lots of info on the internet. But that would get long and I do hate long posts. So I'll be back with my next word.
