Heat Wave

Dog is drooped on the floor thinking, It's so hot. Hairs start flying out of his hair with a pling sound. Someone screams, Ah! Where'd this giant furball come from? Dog wags tail and thinks, Much better.
Now that’s a whole different kind of tumbleweed.

Reminiscing on my time at the pet shop, since we don’t actually own any dogs. I’m also incredibly shocked I spelled reminiscing correctly on the first try.

Wait, what was I saying?

Oh, right. Dogs. I’ve had to move on to a new work situation due to health issues, but here’s a list of the critters I will sorely miss:

  • Abby
  • Ethyl
  • Patti
  • That little old dog in the jean jacket
  • That big fluffy dog, and that one, and that one, and that…
  • The weird little husky with two different colored eyes
  • The cat that comes in on a stroller
  • Zeus/Karma/whatever name that chameleon’s going by now
  • Eugene/ Stirfry
  • Yeldarb, Tumbleweed, Big D, the Bunny Master, the Art Historian, Peaches/Chief/Trogdor/Unicorn Tamer, the Kiwi, and Fallout/Fester

And for everyone else? Thank you so much for stopping by. I’ll see you again next week. *waves*

Wishing you the best,
