Came back from Toronto at midnight last night and discovered an e-mail from Plume’s rescue organization saying that it would be a while before their local vet could spay her, so would we mind very much taking Plume right away and getting her spayed later by one of their vets closer to us?

Hee! We’re going to pick her up tomorrow morning. She still has a cough and she hasn’t been dewormed, so we’ll have to keep her somewhat separate from Poupoune for a week or so. I called our vet and confirmed that Poupoune’s bordetella vaccine is up to date, and scheduled Plume for a general physical and deworming on Monday.

I haven’t had to live with a bouncy young animal in about twelve years. Back then it was Poupoune, who was a quarter of the size of Plume. It’s going to be disruptive.



  1. Have an absolutely fabulous bonding time. New companions are so lovely. Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. Welcome to Plume…I have a cat named Plume du’ Jour!

  2. How goes the bonding with Plume?

  3. Bonding is going slowly. I’m not very good at playing and she’s not very good at coming when called (probably related phenomena). We’re signing up for dog classes where they promise to teach us a fun trick every week for six weeks (in addition to the sit/stay/down stuff) so that will help me work on my playing skills.

    She’s beautiful, and I get lots of compliments on her. I’ve decided that all dogs with small waists are beautiful, and most dogs in our neighbourhood are encumbered with thick waists, so she stands out. This observation is motivating me to work on my own waist.
