Well, let’s get the farewell out of the way first, shall we?
As you may recall, a little over a month ago, we welcomed Tilly into our home – a lab mix who was in desperate need of some TLC.
It didn’t take long for us to realize that we were not going to be the right family to be her “furever” home, although we truly loved that sweet little girl. You see, Tilly has some hunting breed woven into her mix and, in her eyes, our ancient cat seemed more of a slow moving squirrel. Since it didn’t seem right to banish the cat to the basement for the remainder of her days, we opted to foster Tilly for the Atlanta Lab Rescue, fattening her up and lavishing love on her ’til the right folks came along – which happened to be this past weekend. She is now living with a retired couple that lives on a lake and wants to spoil her rotten. I was afraid that Tucker might miss her terribly, but aside from toy tugging, he seems happy to once again be the king of his castle.
As for the glad-hearted greeting…a bird that rarely blesses me with his presence stopped by yesterday for a dip in the fountain.
This Golden-crowned Kinglet skitted from rock to rock, debating whether or not he wanted to get in the water.
When he finally made up his mind, he hopped in, gave his feathers a fast flip, and then hopped back out.
