If you've come here today because you heard there was a Board of Director's meeting last night at the NS SPCA and you were hoping that there was some movement in the management of the organization - you can forget about it. Nothing is going to change there. The will for change at the executive level is non-existent. Business will continue on unabated. Excuses will be proferred, animals will continue to be put in gas chambers, termperament tests will continue to be done by - who? and are they? Rescue groups will be worked with so that cages can be freed up - and especially, breed specific rescues - in what way? Oh right.... that's only in my head. But I digress - since none of this matters and none of it is happening - I'm going to talk about the patch of shit that's been growing on Jack's ass and had to be taken care of today....
Jack has a very unfortunate pattern of hair growth around his butt - and he's only about 2 weeks away from his next groom, and I think he's had some loose stool the last week or so - so he's had a bunch of shit pile up around his ass hole - and today it became too much for him - he's been going around trying to scratch his butt, which he can't - because his body is too long and he can't reach it - so he's been very unhappy - so we had a grooming emergency.
Luckily Kathleen at Tailwagrrr's agreed to spend a couple minutes shaving off poor Jack's shit patch - she also cut his nails too.
I can say pretty easily that he was pretty unhappy with both events.
Buttercup though was pretty happy that these things were happening to HIM and not HER - haha!
While we were there we picked up a copy of the newest local animal magazine to come out - "Pet Country" - which actually looks and reads very well - I thought it was very well done - I'm looking forward to the next issue, and hope that it becomes available for subscription like Furry's Halifax has become - so I can support it.
Buttercup was being exceptionally cute this afternoon. But really, she's exceptionally cute every moment of every day.
