So much for that contest.
I have lots of photos to share and too many things to write about. Tomorrow I leave for Orlando and then California; for the next three weeks I'll be traveling. I'll try to write more today, but I don't know if I'll have time.
I finally found a boarding place for Zippy while my sister's on vacation; of course, I put if off to the last minute but got a place for him at my first choice. I hate to leave him in a cage like that, but this is a reputable place and I know a teacher who worked there for many years, so I feel confident that he'll be well cared for. Betty will keep him during the time that she's not away; this year our vacations crossed. I sometimes stay at her house to pet sit, and she takes in Zippy any time he needs a place to crash.
Speaking of which, I need to find a photo of her sweet doggie, Kipper. He went to the Rainbow Bridge two weeks ago. He was quite a dog. He and Zippy got along very well. Once Zippy figured out that Kipper wasn't going to romp with him, they coexisted and even shared their food. Betty cooked chicken and rice for Kip for many months, and Zippy loooooved the homemade food.
