Silent Sunday! One critter leaves, another arrives!

  1. Red headed off to his forever home, Blue Sky Horse Rescue (like them on Facebook) in Klamath Falls, Oregon this morning. Not two hours after he left, I got a call, could I take in a pot-bellied pig. After a short talk w/ hubby, I made an offer to the Animal Control Officer. Let me adopt her (at no cost) and I would find her a good home for an adoption fee payable to me. That make's it more worth our time taking in all the rescue livestock! She said "No Problem"

  2. I bet it was hard saying goodbye to Red. Just remember you are responsible for giving him a new life.

    Good thinking regarding the little piggy! Blessings to you for all you do for unwanted, mistreated animals.

  3. Actually, I'll be truthful, saying goodbye was not hard at all. I am so happy that he is recovering so well and that I had a part in it. The truth is, watering his feed, packing the 20-some odd pounds down to him twice a day and arguing him about personal space was getting old, so I am relieved at this point. Does this sound horrible?

  5. Heck no, it doesn't sound horrible. It sounds like you just waved good-bye to a big job that you won't have to do every day now! But you're still responsible for bringing him back to health . . . the ungrateful, pushy, old horse! ;o}

  6. If I were closer I would take that pig in a second. I have always wanted one and even have a vet lined up that treats them. It is just a matter of convincing the husband. I love pigs.

  7. I think it's terrific you brought Red back to health, Ruth. Whether he seemed appreciative or not, he is one of God's creatures and deserves a happy life!

    God bless you!
