    Random pet thoughts

    I was at my mom and dad's yesterday. Their neighbor's car was in its parking space but parked at an angle, so I parked at an angle too. When I got out of the car, there was a tiny baby bunny tucked into the corner where the garage door meets the building. My mom and dad share a 2-car garage with their neighbor. He leaves his car outside the garage and my dad is no longer driving, so the door rarely gets opened. I didn't walk right up to the bunny and I didn't see the mom anywhere, so I just walked away. When I left, the baby was gone- I hope the mom moved it. I'm sure my neighbor spotted the baby and parked intentionally at an odd angle so I would do the same thing. (We don't love "creatures" around here, not at all, not one bit )

    I am sure it's bunny mom came and got it - mothers need to go eat so they can nurse the babies, but always come back for them!

    What nice stories! Thank you, all!

    As I was leaving for work this morning, there was an adorable bunny on the lawn having breakfast - a dandelion! I waited until the bunny finished munching before I opened the car door, so as not to startle it. What a cute bunny!

    Miss Hoppy loved her dandelion flowers - the neighborhood children would pick them to bring her!

    It's International Guide Dog Day! (last Wednesday in April)

    I have about a zillion favorite patients from my time as a staff nurse. One of them had a helper dog. They came to my unit to say hello when he was attending an outpatient appointment. The dog was super smart and they made a perfect team.

    My other favorite helper dog story ... there used to be a family at my church that helped to train a helper dog by bringing him to church. He did great 99.95% of the time. He only had one "blooper". One Sunday he barked during church - the family was so embarrassed but the entire congregation smiled and laughed! It was so cute! Our pastor (who's a dog lover) laughed, looked right at him and thanked him for his "input"! He was so cute and so good. People always wanted to pet him and the family would allow it for short periods.
