Tootsie had the good fortune to find her forever home in late June. Jane and Jerry from Cheyenne made a special trip down to meet Tootsie at our rescue booth at the Fort Collins Fire Hydrant 5k … it was love at first sight!! Ten days later, she was on her way to Cheyenne. I have no doubt that Tootsie is loving her new home and being a part of a family. Whether she’s ever had that in the past, we’ll never know … but it is certainly her life now. She’s settled in and is doing quite well … and probably getting a bit spoiled, if the truth be known lol.
You’ll note the background in the photo is a change up from our usual “family photos.” That’s because our house is down for the count for the time being. We’re in the midst of a home update which included taking out all the carpet and putting in hardwood throughout the house. Between the carpet’s age, all the dogs, and the pukin’ cat, it was either replace it or go to hard surface. We chose hard surface and haven’t looked back … most likely because there isn’t anything to look back on. To get to hardwood, we had to completely move everything off the main floor. With the exception of what’s in the kitchen cabinets, literally everything is either in a box in the basement or sitting in the garage, covered with a sheet. Even my “kitchen” is in the garage, making cooking a real challenge as it’s either microwave, grill or crockpot. Today, all the sinks in the house come out as the new counters will be installed on Monday. Alan keeps reminding me I should be thankful we at least have one functioning sink … in the garage. :::sigh::: Obviously, his morning routine to get ready for work doesn’t include a sink being handy!
