Sleep at last

My generic Ambien is working nicely. But I have learned that after I take it I have a short time in order to actually go to sleep before it works against me. Last night I took it then Joe decided he needed to talk with me about some things. I finally had to tell him I had to go to sleep. But it was after 11pm before I finally got into the deep sleep. It's OK though, I am just figuring out how it works with my body.

My son has been at our house for the past 2 days. It has been nice to see and be with him but it is time for him to go home. I love him to death but it's time. I imagine a lot of yall know what I mean.

I have found an easier way to get ready in the mornings. I don't blow dry my hair anymore. I just slap a bit of gel into it and take off. I think it looks better this way. Plus it saves me at least 3 minutes getting ready. I don't wear makeup anymore. I haven't in years so my morning ritual is pretty simple. Just like I like it.

I was on Craigslist yesterday and found a boxer in Missouri that has tested positive for heart worms and the owner can't afford to have him treated. She has tried to find a boxer rescue group that will take him (Tyson is his name) but she is having problems since she is the owner trying to give him up. I don't understand that but if anyone can help I would appreciate it. I emailed her yesterday several times back and forth. She is waiting to hear from a couple of groups. Otherwise she will take this sweetie to a kill shelter which is unacceptable. Anyone have any ideas?

What about Spencer's family? Someone has to be willing to spend the money on the heartworm treatment.

I already asked her (the lady with the boxer) about how he would be with a small child and she didn't recomment it.

Lisa I have a list of charities that will pay dog medical expenses but I can't find you email address anymore. Shoot me an email when you have a chance and I can forward you the list. We get people all the time coming to our rescue not because they want to give up the dog but they can't afford medical treatment. We give them this list and many times they help. Sadly most boxer rescues are at a constant full up point. Even if she can get him through treatment it's real hard to place them.

Glad the ambien is working. I sleep terrible too. Took benedrly for years, than trazidone. Didn't like how the trazione made me feel the next morning and half the day.
Was wondering how Ryan was doing.
Sad about the boxer. Hope she finds help.

I'm finally getting some rest. Glad that you are too.

Just so you know, I am one of the rescues she talked to. Her story is not entirely true. We NEVER told her we wouldn't take boxers from owners. What I told her was at this moment in time I have no foster homes open and no money to treat him. I did add that shelters are our priority. She contacted us back in February or January and just wanted us to pay for the treatment but didn't want to surrender him. I already have a $800 vet bill with a $0 balance in my account, I can't afford to pay for someone's personal dog. Now 7 mths later, she is wanting to surrender him. She has told some people she did start the treatment, she has had some people GIVE her money and then tells us she hasn't started the treatment. She told one lady she found the dog but told us she argued with the mayor of the city until he released the dog from the pound to her with the commitment to take care of him. She has boxer puppies and other boxers that she is keeping or giving to family. This lady has lied, changed her story and refused to take suggestions that were given to her. Maybe if she would have worked with us at the first of the year, this boxer would be better. Since he has been heartworm positive for at least six months, who knows if he would even survive the treatment at this point. The infestation could be to strong. Then again, we have people that have told us they gave her money to start the treatment but that she needs $600 for the final treatment. The final treatment is the cheapest treatment of all, it is the first ones that are the most expensive. You guys are welcome to send her money but I would be sure to send it to a vet and not her. Just my FYI and 2 cents. Jennifer, Boxer/Schnauzer Rescue of the Ozarks
