Over the past week or so, Chick has been an avid user of the CTA, riding along on the El train like she’s been doing it for years. Continue reading
A few weeks ago One Tail at a Time was the featured charity at Filoni’s annual spring gathering. Filoni is an artisan inspired clothing and accessories boutique in downtown Oak Park and Chick and I were lucky enough to be the featured guests at their event. Ten percent of all sales from the evening were donated to OTAT and it was so much fun to chat with the lovely ladies in attendance, all who had rescue dogs of their own. It was not so lovely, however, when Chick grumbled at one of those attendees. She sure is a snot sometimes.
(PS you must go to Maya del Sol, also in Oak Park:)
Even though you wouldn’t know it by the weather we had yesterday and today (snow in April, NBD), this past weekend was warm and filled with so much sunshine. So naturally that meant people decided to start setting off fireworks, which Chick sure did not appreciate. Warm weather also meant a bath for her, which she also did not enjoy. So I guess to sum it up, it was a nice weekend, but not for poor Chick:)
I often think about how much fun it would be to take Chick to work with me. When I work from home, she mostly just snoozes on the couch all day (alternating between the pillows there and the blankets in her bed). For the most part she only occasionally wanders into the den to visit me. How much fun would it be to just look under your desk and see a Chick snoozin’ away?
Last weekend I headed to Chicago Animal Care and Control for what I thought was a meet and greet for a potential foster pup. She was a tiny chihuahua mix named Gracie. But by the time I had arrived she had already been transferred to another rescue (yay!).
So instead I hung out with this sweet pup in the photo above. His name is Polo and he was so lovely. When I first saw him he looked so, so sad in his cage. He is about six years old and an owner surrender, so probably pretty confused about why he was there. Once I took him outside, he was so happy and loved being in the fresh air. He’s available for adoption, if anyone is looking:)
