Ack! What are these things that appear mysteriously all over the house on the floor? Do they belong to Duffy? Yes they do, as we continue with 2010, the year of the big shedding aka the shedding that never ends! I brush and brush and brush and get buckets of hair off him and he's still shedding!! I vacuum every day and in an hour the floor is hairy again!! What a joy!!
Oh, there's the culprit doing his doggy aerobics and spreading his hair around!!
And here he is, making sure that I am following him as we play hide and seek with "Fluffy Ball"!!
And we come to the puppies--last Friday, Edith and I delivered 13 of the 16 puppies for new residents. Sadly 3 people had already passed away.
Delivering the puppies to men is always a hoot--they get this quizical smile on their faces and feel kind of silly, but kind of like it too!! Some will say that they will give it to their grandchildren--sure you will!! Hahaha! We had help from one the staff on the Chinese unit--she found each one of the residents and translated while I explained to the resident that this was a gift to welcome them to the EG. Then they were coached either by her or in one case a daughter to say "thank you" in English!! They did so and they bowed and I bowed and said "You are welcome". On another unit, one lady just wanted to talk and talk. Turns out she was a war bride, born in Scotland, said that she was the youngest war bride and the last war bride. She's 88 and full of spunk and will to carry on, even though she's been in a wheelchair for 10 years.There's so much history and lives well lived in all these people.
