Tom: We have a lot of things to be thankful for today, and would like to start off with a rescue story which shows what can be done with social media and a lot of heart. #1 likes a page on FaceBook called Iron Gait Percherons. It's a rescue organisation in the States for all horses but principally Percherons. A little while ago she read a notice on the page saying that there was a horse that needed to be rescued in Virginia and transported to their location in Georgia. We happen to have very good friends in Virginia who have rescue Percherons, and so #1 contacted them, they contacted Iron Gait, #1 then sent an official note from the French Percheron Horse Society, and the transport was arranged! Over the weekend, Mr. O drove 2000km (1,250 miles) over 2 days to collect Snowman and take him to his new home.
It just goes to show what we can do if we try, even across the oceans! Much kudos to Mr. O, seen in this photo with a younger Vidock, in September 2011:
Their home is full of rescue animals of all sizes!
Genji: In other news, I am very grateful for our sky hammocks although, for some bizarre reason, #1 finds my use of them a little peculiar:. So here I am in one:
You can't see me? Well of course you can't see me! I, Genji the Shining Prince, sleep inside the hammock, not on it!!! I believe it's known as "cocooning".....
We got our stuff from Nip and Bones today, and Sei-Chan was very thankful to receive her new Beastie Band collar!
It has Chinese characters on it, and the one you can see is the one for happiness!
Tom: I am thankful that I can play with my ball again, now that the snow is gone. When there's snow, the ball tends to get lost...
And Tama-Chan is thankful that #1 cleared her desk somewhat so she can sit on the boogie mat in front of the Mac and supervise at eye level:
