Two public service announcements tonight. One personal: I am going on a company vacation to the nearly-inundated Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, Friday through Monday. (Yes, I know, it’s a tough life! Mind you, this is the first company vacation I’ve ever been on, so don’t think this is a regular thing for me. But still.) I will probably still be posting while I’m there, but maybe not. Who knows? I will do what is fun and relaxing.
And one that someone emailed me. I get the occasional person trolling for media exposure emailing me, and I tend to ignore most of them (‘I read your blog “The Dogs Of San Francisco” regularly and am always amazed by the insight of your articles!’ Sure you do, buddy. Sure you do.) But this one caught my interest. Apparently this Sunday (November 1) at 6 PM, KQED is airing a documentary on a hospice for elderly and disabled animals in Santa Rosa, called ‘Last Stop in Santa Rosa‘. It’s also available online here. I freely admit that I am not in any emotional shape to watch it right now, with my fun little health problems… maybe when I get back from vacation.
And then there’s today’s dog. I was wandering around trying desperately to find my car after CorgiCon (I’d been forced to park over a mile away) and I stumbled on some post-corgi-con cleansing going on in a yard. Somehow, this pup doesn’t seem at all upset by shedding the excess sand.
Enjoy your trip!
I’ve taken classes at Brighthaven in Santa Rosa. Gail and Richard are amazing people and they work their b*tts off giving the residents of Brighthaven a dignified life and holistic medical care. It is a different approach than what many of us are used to, but the residents are well taken care of and loved. I know it might be hard to imagine, but I’m not sad when I’m at or thinking of Brighthaven – more grateful for the animals and those that take care of them.
That’s awesome. I will have to check that out.
Hope you have a great time on your trip! Glad they decided to keep the vacation on schedule–at least I hope the weather co-operates! Did you get the msg. I txted you? Let me know what you figure out. Hope your new medication will help! Take care. Elaine & Carl
I did get your message, thanks. Things have been a little stressful here, and I’m kind of being irresponsible about stuff not related to my health or work at the moment, but I’ll try to get back to you over the weekend.
