Most of you know my dog Banjo by now. Banjo is my dog but she also is my heart. We adopted her 11 years ago from a rescue group after finding her on the computer, on a site called petfinders. She was found on the side of a highway in Oklahoma where a kind trucker, gal pulled over and gave her a lift to Texas, then to California. Her name when we adopted her was Clare which was serendipitous since she would be living in Claremont. Banjo was diagnosed with cancer last week after I noticed a suspicious lump while I groomed her. It has been a rough few days for not only me but for our family. Banjo is one of those dogs who goes with the flow, she has a very calm temperament and suffers very little stress, which makes vet appointments a bit easier since I think it takes more of a toll on me. Banjo wags her tail and demonstrates her impeccable manners which makes everyone fall in love with her.
*Dr B. tapped his lap and tried to get Jo to put her feet on him which she wouldn't do. I told him she was trained not to do that, then he felt foolish for trying to make her misbehave, Banjo wagged :)
Banjo had surgery yesterday by a very talented and funny I might add, veterinary surgeon. I should have saved the note Banjo wrote to him but as it turns out it was the first note he'd ever received from a dog so he kept it :) Banjo's prognosis is very, very good, I spoke to her surgeon last night who is quite sure he got it out before it had spread which was a collective sigh of relief here at the Darrow home. The reason I am sharing all this is because, I have gotten so far behind with communication and it's hard to pretend all is well when suffering brain cramps and heart cramps, not to mention, trying to work with all this going on.
Sometimes groundhog day is just the thing to keep your hands busy while your brain hurts.
I'm going to saw more birds after receiving more notes and list more orders today.
These two are flying off today.
Thank you again for your orders and always for you kindness and understanding.
Much LOvE, Ro & Jo
