I’ve been working a day a week on the Ute Mountain Ute reservation for almost a year. Nothing special about that, but if you know me at all, I am a huge sucker for stray dogs. There is an endless supply on the reservation. I have turned a blind eye for many months, but finally brought home two puppies who were wandering in the road yesterday.The call to my husband started this way,
“Please don’t divorce me, but….”
He knew right away I was bringing home a dog. He says I could buy a new car, take out a new mortgage, or buy any crazy purchase without that phrase, but if I’m asking him not to divorce me, it must mean a dog. He didn’t divorce me, and we are now fostering two adorable, but very naughty puppies. Never a dull moment.
There will be some great stuff coming up next week, including some awesome giveaways. Come back if you like free money!
