K friends, I've run my mouth and preached way more than I'm comfortable with. I'm sorry. I'm so very passionate about dogs and the human/animal bond.
New subject: Pops goes Mon am for hip replacement. He's 83. He has great insurance. He's a no frills matter of fact kinda guy about the surgery. He has to go to a rehab for 3 weeks after the surgery. Well now...I remember when my mom had heart surgery and the S#!T holes medicare was going to send her to for rehab. I raised hell! Got her in a nice facility. Pops brought me a list today of 4 approved rehabs. They told him they would send him to whichever one had a bed available. Ins always tries to use the cheapest place. I researched all of them. OMG!!! 2 on the list had horrible ratings! 1 out of 5 for inspections and sickening reviews! Oh HECK NO! Pops ain't going there! I found 2 that are rated really good. Game on! He WILL stay in the hospital until one of those 2 has an available bed. Stay tuned!
Tomorrow, I'm rehoming a service dog in training. It's so hard. I've worked with her for 15 months. she's a wonderful pup but won't retrieve. Her client is in a chair and must have retrieval. She'll go to another org for an autistic child. i've had her since she was 8 weeks old! So very hard to send her away.
So with all that goin on...ya'll won't have to put up with my ramblings for a few weeks. If I don't post, know that everything is fine. Have fun and I love you all!
I will miss you Mutt! Hugs and prayers to you and your Pops and the doggie!
