Meet & Greets

It has been a long time since I've posted and so much has happened. We attended the Woodstock Meet & Greet yesterday and had such a good time. I got to meet Kate who runs Many Hounds Inn and Comet who is an absolute beautiful petite sweetheart. Comet and Jessie were doing synchronized sits. They look so much a like too. Exactly the same color but Comet appears to be at least 5-10 lbs. lighter because she's so petite. Jessie wouldn't leave Kate alone when she saw she had treats. I'm going to bring a hula hoop next time too so Jessie can show some more of her tricks.

Roz was back in her little shell yesterday but was taking treats and for a little background, she's way way shy. I have been taking her to M&G's since I've had her and she's getting better. She didn't shake the entire time this time and actually did do some tricks. When we first fostered her, she would go in our bedroom and just peek around the corner at us. Luckily my own grey, Sydney, stayed in the bedroom too but it was because she always laid in her bed. All the time. She would come out to eat and get hugs and then on back to bed. So Roz had company but she wanted to come out. Eventually she did and is getting better out of the house too.

My son didn't make the varsity football team and he's been trying so hard. He went to all the practices and helped with all the fundraisers but just didn't quite cut it. He tried out for a pitcher and should have just tried out to be a fielder. There is just too much competition at this level and he's not up to it. He was so sad and my heart just broke for him. We're hoping he goes back to football but it's a big commitment. These football coaches these days are out for blood and they expect the kids to be that way too. I prefer him hanging out with the athletes at school who are too busy working out instead of looking for trouble. I know the athletes get in trouble too but they don't have as much time and they're tired. lol
