We have a sad today.   Our doggy Swamp Fox has gone to Rainbow Bridge. 

Swamp Fox joined us at Rikki’s Refuge in 2006 as an energetic Coonhound who loved to play with the other dogs living in Doggy Downs #1.  He was a sweet dog who was a friend of other dogs but very very skittish of hoomans.

His life changed forever when Pebbles, a mixed breed of hound and who knows what, joined us not long after.   Pebbles was terrified of hoomans too.  She fell in love with Swamp Fox immediately.

From that day on, Swamp Fox was the most protective dog we ever saw, always stepping in front of Pebbles to keep her protected from hoomans.  He also loved to play with the dogs that were out in the exercise lot, always barking up a storm.  

Pebbles passed over Rainbow Bridge last year and Swamp Fox became sad and lonely.  He still loved his treats, though!!   And other dogs, but life was just not the same for this poor aging doggy.

He was a good boy who loved to run and hang out with Pebbles.  Now they are playing together at Rainbow Bridge. 

The cows enjoyed the warm morning and the sprouting grass.

We had great big huge calamity today too.

There was no water this morning .....  so the emergency call to the well company went out .....  meanwhile the hoomans had to carry water to all animal neighborhoods cus it's too muddy to be able to drive around .... ugghhhhh   .....  no hoomans were very happy this morning .....

With the hoomans busy Volvo took on the task of supervising the well repairs.

Before being adopted, Candy lived in the kitty room at Re-Tail. We had a tv in there to play Video Catnip for the kitties  -- she would sit and look at her reflection in the tv for hours on end.  So, we put a mirror in there, and she would sit if front of it for hours admiring herself!

When she went to her forever home she wanted a mirror of her own ....  so back to Re-Tail she came to shop !!!!   Now she can look at her beauty all day long !!!! 

Two Goats and a Unicorn !!
