Saturday Pet Blog Hop - Our new foster, Miss Piggy!

Hi Everyone!  Thanks for stopping by today.
We are very excited to let you all know that we have a new foster dog!  Her name is Miss Piggy.  She's a two-year-old Sharpei-mix.  She came from animal control, so we don't really know her story.  But she's as friendly as can be.
Take a look at this cute face.

All I can tell you so far is that she loves playing with Chili.  

There are some new kids on campus.

Sorry about the quality of this picture, it's from a cell phone.  But aren't these babies cute?  I know many people think of the geese on campus as vermin.  And they can be hazardous.  Some students have been attacked by the geese.  But I still love seeing the babies.
Speaking of babies, we've got some new ones incubating on our deck.  This is a concrete umbrella holder that we were planning to get rid of this spring.  But a momma bird decided to use it as a home, so we'll have to wait.  See the little eggs in there?

Next weekend is the big yard sale at our house to benefit Hope Rescues.  I hate how much work yard sales are, but we raised $1000 for the dogs last year.  I hope we do as well this year too!  But I will also be glad when it's over.

Well, I hope you have a chance to visit some of the other blogs in the hop.  Thanks again for stopping by!

Random Thoughts Tuesday 4-12-11

Hey Everyone!  Just hopping in on the random Tuesday thing with Stacy.  Check her out and join in the fun.

Taxes: Well, I got the huge packet back from the accountant today.  You might be thinking that it is kinda cuttin' it close, but I assure you, it was totally my fault.  I always resolve to get my stuff into the accountant before "the last minute".  But then reality hits and before I know it, I'm getting an email from him saying "get me your stuff!".  Anyway, I've got several days now to get to the post office.....

Cats: I've got a spare cat in the basement at the moment.  She's got to go though.  She was living with my niece, but b-i-l said she had to go so I'm "holding" her until later today.  I'd foster her but Hubby is extremely allergic, so that's not an option.

Drugs: Bath salts? Really?  What will the kids (and probably adults too) come up with next?  Have you heard of this?  Google it.  You'll be amazed.  or maybe not.

Class: Looking forward to my Human Diseases class today.  An OB/GYN friend of mine is giving a lecture on STDs and other reproductive diseases.  He promises lots of pictures.  Lots of pictures that will make the students think twice about multiple partners and other unsafe sex practices.  I need to sit facing the students so I can see their reactions!  Should be amusing.  And the funny thing is that most of these kids are hoping to go to med school, or dental school, or nursing school.  They will still be totally grossed out.

Lizards: I think I may have mentioned that I'm now an expert at giving injections to Mamba, our leopard gecko.  Well, I'm happy to report that she is mucho better.  She's still got a bit of a skin infection, but she's much improved.  Now the only problem is that whenever I try to pick her up, she thinks she's gonna get a shot and she goes into a death roll (like an alligator) in my hand.  Poor thing.  I'll be glad when this round of antibiotics is over.

De-cluttering: Despite the fact that my hubby begged me suggested that I not volunteer to do the charity yard sale at our house this year, I'm doing it.  We raised $1000 for the dogs last year.  But, yes, it is a lot of work.  The thing is, the whole neighborhood does it at the same time, so we get lots of yard sale fanatics.  Most of them don't appreciate that it's for charity and still try to talk me down to a quarter from a 50 cent book.  But then some people give a donation even if they don't find something to buy.

K.  Well, I need to get dressed.  Get 2 short people dressed, fed, and packed up for school, go to the gym, shower, then get to class to see yucky pics.  I hope you have a great Tuesday!
