Extreme Sleepover 4 – Night #5

Temperature: -18 (Feels like -26 BRRRRR!!!)
Fundraising Total: $2965 (OVER HALF WAY!!!!! THANK YOU!)

8:55pm Arrive at the shelter.

9:00pm Let Dharma out to begin her puppy reign of terror. Everything is a toy!

The office looks like a very confusing crime scene.

9:10pm I dig into the popcorn left in the care package from Karen. What a coincidence! Dharma also likes popcorn!

(Notice the dumped garbage can in the background. Her calling card! Don’t get me wrong, she is actually a good puppy! But this is why foster homes for puppies are SO important! She has some learning to do!)

9:15pm Papa Grey helps himself to my popcorn. Go ahead…sure, I don’t mind.

9:20pm Vaccinate and deworm Greg. His impound period is up so he will be up for adoption. Look at that handsome mug!

9:27pm I put him back in his kennel and discover a pee puddle. Mop it up.

9:30pm I terrorize the Grey Cage O’ Doom a bit with some festive dress up. Revenge is a dish best served cold…like the North Pole. I went around shouting “Who is your leader?! Who is your leader!?” So my message would be received loud and clear. This is what happens when you disturb my sleep. Let this be a warning to the others!

9:45pm Since we have so many new dogs I take some pictures of everyone so we can post them for adoption.

9:55pm I let Litsoo out for his photo session and he promptly empties his bladder. At least he was kind enough to aim for the floor drain.

10:20pm I let Brutus out to run a bit. You would think that only having 3 legs would slow him down a bit. Nope! Look at that blur go!

10:30pm I let Jack out to run. He stops to pee on a few things. Mop mop mop.

10:40pm Dharma pees. I am sensing a theme this evening. Mop mop mop.

10:35pm Snuggles with Splash.

10:45pm I put away loose cats. The Elusive Grey Kitty is nowhere to be found.

11:00pm Found her! She thinks if she stays completely still I won’t be able to see her. She has mistaken me for a T-Rex…wrong! But like a T-Rex my arms aren’t long enough to reach her on top of the high cupboard so I leave her there. You win this time….and last time. You just win. Way to win, winner.

11:15pm I pick my sleeping buddy…Jack! He came to us after the RCMP seized him from a bad situation. He was chained up and the chain was wrapped around his neck 3 times and was becoming embedded into his neck. Thankfully he was rescued and charges have been laid.

11:28pm Crawl into bed with extra blankets. Temperatures are dropping yet again. Winter is here.

11:32pm Dogs are barking like mad. I stick my head out the dog door and Jack is antagonizing Rocky.

11:35pm Jack comes inside briefly and then right back out again.

12:10am The dogs have been barking steady. I go outside and close the outside gate so Jack can’t get in Rocky’s face. Because “Hey! Hey! Jack! Stop! Hey! No!” wasn’t working.

12:12am Jack goes back and forth trying to decide if he wants to be inside or outside. So far outside and a windchill of -26 is winning.

12:15am Get the dogs settled down just in time for the cats to pipe up.

12:35am Dogs start up again.

12:40am Cue the cats! All together now! Woof woof woof, meow meow meow!

2:17am Jack is finally inside and curled up on my feet. I move a bit and he heads outside again.

3:00am Saddest cat of life starts singing a sorrowful melody.

4:17am Jack is back. I pet him and he goes back outside. Is it me?

6:23am I wake up. Jack is curled up on the foot of the bed. He seems really unsure about the whole thing.

15356552_10153906577856432_5874567903218599151_n

He doesn’t seem to have the confidence to come and cuddle so I go to him and pet him and give him scratches behind the ear and the always loved butt scratch. He flashes his giant smile.

6:40am I let some of the dogs out back and feed everyone. I let Dharma outside for a bathroom break.

6:55am The Elusive Grey Kitty makes her presence known with an adorable “mew” as I walk into the bathroom.

7:00am I scoop litter boxes and feed the cats. Dharma follows me around.

7:05am I put the dogs away and take out the garbage. Dharma refuses to come outside. -29 Windchill? All of her nopes. She’d rather poop on the floor, thankyouverymuch.

7:15am Put Dharma back in her kennel and Elusive Grey Kitty back in hers.

7:20am One more pee puddle for the road. Dharma, you shouldn’t have!

7:25am Night #5 Complete! (That’s totally a 5…can’t you tell?)
