SO! Thank goodness for free shipping and good sales! I washed the cotton liner of Gerry’s toy box, and put it back in. MAN did he have a lot of antlers he didn’t card much for. (They’re in the “to the shelter” box of items I’ve wanted to donate for a year, but could never bring myself to part with. His toy box is still in the same spot, because, well, it fits!
I did online research this weekend and discovered this COOL new water bottle that has a lid that flips over to dispense water on walks. (No more Tupperware and water bottle in my walking pack!) Blind dogs apparently like crinkly noised toys. The lamb is also supposed to have a lavender scent to it, but I have essential oils to help with that as well. Poop bags are ready, and tonight we set up the crate. Today I buy her food and tomorrow I take a personal day and pick her up in the morning so we can have a day in the house together. I have a hammock style back seat cover on order, as well as a collar from Orvis with the phrase “I”M BIND (my phone #) BOO” on it. It glows in the dark as does the leash. Believe me when I say I tried to only get the basics. The foster mom is going to let me borrow her harness until I can find one that is similar….and….and I’ll be looking for a coat as it is cold, and WILL get colder. I want to get a new dog stand for her eating bowls…I have the bowls, but threw away the stand as it was duct taped fixed once, and wasn’t so difficult to get rid of last fall. Blankets are washed, and YOU know that once she’s here, I’ll think, “Why didn’t I get that,” in response to some other obvious thing I’m overlooking. Breathe….just breathe.
