Jeremy to the rescue again!

About a month or so ago, Jeremy rescued 4 baby bunnies after a rain storm collapsed their nest and their mother abandoned them. Unfortunately, even hand feeding them they died one by one. I told him that it was natural selection. So today he was at work and got a call from the gate guard that a family of dogs was on site. That wasn't a problem until he saw the Mother and Father dog pacing back and forth at the edge of the pond. It was immediately obvious that the 2 puppies had fallen in. By the time Jeremy got to them, all 4 were in the water. He got them all out of the water and tried to get them into the plant to dry off and warm up since it was snowing but only one puppy went in and the others ran off. Thankfully, the owner had put a tag on the puppy with his phone number on it. Guess what! He's away for Thanksgiving. So the plan was to bring the puppy home for the night and a relative would come get him in the morning. It gets better, the other puppy shows up just as Jeremy is getting ready to leave work and we end up with 2 guests for the night. It's a good thing that our 2 dogs aren't territorial or we would have a big problem! Picture 4 dogs trying to drink from one bowl.

For those of you that don't know us that well, this is the way of life for us. We always have extra animals or relatives or exchange students living with us. Adoption just seemed like the next natural step. We thrive on chaos and love every moment of it. By the way, we haven't heard anything about court. No news is good news!

Hang in took a few days after our court date to get any news, and it all went perfectly :)

While we were waiting to hear when our court date was scheduled for, we found out that it had actually happened 10 days prior without us knowing about it! Sometimes word travels slow. Hoping everything went smoothly.
