Pokey Porcupines

We began to ponder this afternoon whether the correct pluralization of porcupine is porcupines? Porcupines is correct according to The Russian Orthodox Monk whose dogs were attacked by one this afternoon! (Okay maybe it was the other way around, but that is not how it looked)

We were having a routine day, and then It all fell apart. Two porcupine dogs, a dog that was hit by a car, a dog with heartworm disease, a cat with a bladder infection, and of course the regular surgeries are ready to be picked up! Phew! The good news all patients are well, including the nurse who was bit by the porcupine dog in the middle of the frenzy.

After sending all patients home, except for Baby (the dog who was abandoned at our office at the beginning of the week anyone want a female pit bull?), we realized that it was time to skedaddle to the train station for my nurse who rides the Rail Runner, to commute from Albuquerque to Belen. (We made it with at least 1 minute to spare!) David called to let me know he was passing through Belen and so we were able to eat dinner together, before he ran home to gather horses. He will leave our house at 5:30 a.m to go to Surat Ranch to help them brand tomorrow.

I stayed at my moms. Del Rae and Mote kept the girls, how blessed we are to have an extra set of grandparents to love our girls. So, I wen to the office and did paperwork until 8 and then headed to my moms. I am finally kicking back watching an episode of Farm Kings! (I love that show)

An incredible busy week? I am not sure how busy it actually was, or if it just seemed hectic, because David and my mom have abandoned me, and left me to fend for myself? They both have spoiled me, now I am holding down the fort. I guess they just do that everyone once in awhile to make me appreciate them more. Maybe next time they could coordinate their planners and not be gone at the same time? I appreciate you guys come back! Help!
