Rescue Rover

Red rover, red rover send… Rescue Rover right over.  I’ll get back to Rescue Rover in a moment.   First, I want to wish you a happy Thorsday, little friday and thankful thursday.  It’s a super-hectic time in the Woods, and we’re all pouting a little because we only had one day of fall and we nearly missed it.   I did get one photo and it’s up on the fur-girls’ blog.

34465-1So, back to Rescue Rover.  PetFlow has a special on the pet alert decals and we wanted to share it with you.   I love it when my passions collide, and when the fire service and my pets meet in a safe place, it’s all good.  I do suggest that you check with your local fire department before you just slap the sticker up somewhere though.  I have seen the stickers melted, taken out during initial ventilation efforts, etc., so you want to be sure that your good intentions are actually useful in a very  real emergency.

And hold on to your hats… I’m thankful for the interaction the fur-girls had with Chloe, the young adult JRT up the road.  On our walk Wednesday evening, Chloe charged down her driveway and followed us up the road a bit.  When I realized she and Gg were all bark and no bite and Chloe wasn’t heeding her owner’s commands to come back to him, we turned around and walked her to her mailbox, where she further demonstrated the well-known Jack Russell “You’re not the boss of me!” refusal to obey.  Thankfully, she followed my girls up the embankment when I announced “Car’s coming; out of the road!” and it was a non-incident.  It also gave Chloe’s owner the opportunity he needed to get his hands on one distracted, loose, wild JRT gal.  Sissy had a ball yelling at both little dogs, and at some point, Gg stopped being traumatized and resorted to being just plain mouthy with the other two dogs.  Hooray!

What are you thankful for today?

    Oh that could have been a close one! JRTs are so stubborn. I am thankful that Macy has finally learned to come when she is called. It only took 11 years for us to learn that we had to say, “NOW” for her to respond.

    Glad to hear that everything worked out well.

    I’m thankful that the temperatures have been in the mid to high 50s for the last week. A cold front will be zipping through this weekend and bringing high 20s back into the area – gotta love this time of year when Mother Nature can’t keep her seasons straight.

    Sounds like that worked out well–I’m so glad!

    Grateful for a day warm enough to open the windows to air the carbon monoxide out of the house (I would anyway, but it’s a nice touch). Glad to be alive to be able to.

    That’s a funny little JRT story; I especially love the fact that Sissy had a ball yelling at the littler girls. The Diva thinks (knows?) she’s the boss, indeed.

  6. I’m trying to imagine this episode Channon and all I can “see” is Sissy in complete control of the situation and having no beans about showing it, lol…

    Thankful Marion is feeling better, an afternoon at the hospital but all is well…

    We used to have those stickers on the house but sun and rain faded them away. You make an excellent point about consulting the fire dept as to where to post them.

    So is the other JRT going to be useful in desensitizing Gg?

  8. Well, never a dull moment by you all!

    Sissy is the boss of everyone. 🙂
    Who am I when alone? Probably the same with exception I am more honest about other people when mulling them over in my mind.
