Good Morning Good News !!!! June 17, 2010 Rikkis Refuge, Orange, VA, USA

Hmmm what a beautiful day, light breeze, cool, sun shiny !!!!

Oh my the bestest new of all !!!!! Bob reports in: Yesterday morning
I got a call from the golf pro at Cannon Ridge Golf Course asking me If
I would like to come pickup a couple of dogs!!!?? They had crossed the
river during the thunderstorm and strayed many miles before a sheriffs
deputy picked them up, took them home and gave them a bath and kept them
overnight. Great folks! After driving at a 100 mph from school out to
Cannon Ridge, I saw them outside the clubhouse kitchen eating chicken
and chilling. What an incredible relief to have them back. I can sleep
at night instead of listening for a woof outside the door. WHEW!

Rene put in the fourth and last window in the new Quarantine Building.
Katarina has wire brushed the exterior. Now we're ready for primer and
paint on the outside - and some trim around the windows!!! And
insulation inside!!! Wanna help???

Reminds me of when we had the baby goats living in the cat runs and
playing up and down the slides with them:

the U.S.!!! Now they live at PAWS and have a beautiful future ahead

From Louann: Hurray !! One for the Bull !!!
A matador was fined after running away from a bull and leaping over the
arena wall. Christian Hernandez was arrested after Sunday's botched
bullfight at the Plaza Mexico in Mexico City, apparently for breach of
contract, local media reported. He was released after paying the fine.
There are some things you must be aware of about yourself," the
22-year-old Mexican matador said in a television interview. "I didn't
have the ability, I didn't have the balls, this is not my thing." In a
sight rarely seen in the bravado world of bullfighting, Hernandez made a
spin with his red cape at the charging bull, then ran across the ring
and leapt headlong over the wall to safety, dropping his cape in the
process. The crowd hooted in derision.
