Homer’s Iliad and mostly Odyssey

Howllo Fellow Hound and Homer update lovers:

Wow, this is turning into an epic journey of love and war, hope and despair and honor and glory………Wait a second, that’s the book review.

Anyway, it is 12:30pm on Friday and I still cannot get anyone to answer the phone at the pound. So, I decided to drive over there and see if I can catch the dog catcher and beat down the mighty walls of Troy!

It will take me about an hour round trip.

I go out to my car with my Mapquest in hand and my battery is dead! I left the hatch open last night unloading the car with stuff from my sister’s home.

I come back in side and call AAA – a single girl’s dream car guy!

Mr. AAA shows up and the battery is charging, he said to drive it for about an hour! How handy!!!!!!!

I call my vet to see if I can get Mr. Odyssey in and they say “NO”. Can you believe that? I am so pissed. I don’t even know if I can get Homer, but for them to say no to me after the thousands and thousands of dollars I have spent with them. How rude. You can’t tell me they can’t find a spot for a 12 year old basset hound.

So, I call another vet I have been thinking of swtiching to. He is closer and guess what? He has a basset hound. I think it’s a sign. Oh, and one more thing. They have room for Homer the main man.

I don’t even know if I can spring the old guy today, but I am sure going to try. Hang in there buddy – we all want this epic journey to continue over the weekend!

More really bad references later…….Cat, Chaps and Emma

    Hey, thanks guys! I am getting ready to post another blog, I did not get Homer sprung. The place is closed until Monday. Read my blog for all of the details. The things we do for love!

    Like walking in air in the snow, when there’s nowhere to go and your’e feelin’ like a part of you is dying.

    Remember that one?
