Sorry. Late again. It’s been a rough few days.
We surrendered Dana back to the shelter today. Long story short, she grew increasingly aggressive and alpha despite Heather and I doing everything literally by the book. It just wasn’t a good fit and I’m heartbroken about it. When we took her in we learned that she had been surrendered after adoption once before for the same reason. We’re currently very angry with Scottsville Veterinary Adoptions. They are not doing things right, at least not always, and certainly not in the case of this specific dog.
My dad was taken to the hospital last night and will have surgery to remove a kidney stone tomorrow. Glad it’s not something more serious, but still depressing to see my 77 year old dad in the hospital. He’s still the strongest human I know.
The Pirates lost, the Sabres are winless through 5 games, and the Bills have more injuries than D-Day.
We leave tomorrow for a week in California. San Francisco, driving down to LA, then to San Diego. We desperately need this trip.

Dana was totally into the Sabres/Red Wings game last night… for about a minute… until her short attention span timer ran out and she decided to go lay on the kitchen floor and bark at the [admittedly annoying and bark-worthy] neighbors through the sliding glass door.

Technical glitches all over the goddamn place at tonight’s Board of Education meeting. So frustrating. It’s all shit I’ve been trying to get fixed and/or replaced for years but, like so many things in public ed, it gets pushed aside and so I’ve had to apply cheap, untested, and fragile band-aids just to sustain the illusion that everything is A-OK.
