I really had no idea if it would turn out alright... or not. Pretzels? No problem. Anything else?
Welp--you just never know.
Madd got up in the interim, and we started on her pie.
We've had soooo many pet discussions around here lately. My children want to live in a zoo.
There are a few determents in the way.
Zoo and Aviary require at least age 12 for volunteer services.
the Daddy is allergic to cats.
Mama believes All Living Things Should Be Free.
oh, there are a few other things, too, like...
I don't think Salt Lake County allows Wilburs as pets. I'd so do it. [snort] Babe? Wilbur? Henry? I'm all for pink spikey, spindly, snorty Love.
And we do (organic!) compost. He'd be well-ly fed.
I would love a Bunny! But would what about Annabelle? Would she eat it? Certainly she would a guinea pig.
So today we've been thinking, and are considering a Pet Love business for Trev... for folks in the neighborhood that are feeling guilty about not having enough time/love/energy for their pets... Trev will come and play fetch, pet, talk to, love on, whistle at, admire, lecture, watch the tellie with... whatever it is that your pet needs. For you. For a small fee. For twenty minutes or so. However often you like.
Honestly, the boy would gladly do it for free, but we can't have folks taking advantage.
I'm not sure about the particulars... his Mama has to know that Trev is safe, and we can't have folks thinking we're really out to fleece or burgle them.... so we'll see.
But we're thinking.
We also have an animal hospital in the neighborhood, so hopefully this week we can walk up there and see if they would accept any volunteers...
Headphones are fine things, don't you think?
