Leon's Future Brother?
Courtney will be in town from Thursday through Saturday for a Friday night concert at the Fox. We'll be meeting at City Garden Saturday morning since she's staying downtown. I am so excited! Joe is with his Dad this weekend but I requested his presence because I think he helps me and the dog with these adoption meet and greets.
She has a beautiful, fenced in back yard, she feeds Jackson high quality food, she currently has a young and playful Cocker Spaniel and she knows the breed. Wow - doesn't this sound perfect?? The only drawback is that she's out of state and I have to admit it can be scary to let a foster go hundreds of miles away. But in those cases I always make sure to contact references and tell them over and over again the dog will need to come back to our group. When I called her vet reference and told them her name, they immediately knew she was Jackson's human. That is such a good sign to me.
Let's everyone wish the best for Leon, Jackson and Courtney. I will rreeally miss Leon - he's such a fun little nut. But his possible home sounds like a dream come true for this once unwanted boy.
Today was a really rough day at work ... I got called into the office and got to listen to a list of mistakes I made on a loan. I knew it was going to be a crap day as soon as I read my emails at 7:30 this morning. I even printed one out and had my friend read it. She tried to reassure me but I knew what was to come. ::sigh:: The sucky thing is I still don't think I did anything wrong ... it was a matter of interpreting our policies and I'm proud to say I stuck up for myself. By the end of the meeting I did get a couple of positive comments from two of my bosses and they realized I wasn't being a total irresponsible slacker but it still really really sucked big time.
