Nova ~ Stopped Up Sink ~ Cat's Purpose ~ Mom & Dad 1926 ~ Bruiser ~ Brandy Alexander

Good 33ยบ foggy morning. WE GOT SUN yesterday!!!!!!! Ahhhhhh.......
Yesterday the neighbor's dog, Nova, who makes a trek over here occasionally, did again and wouldn't leave. I didn't let her in or give her a treat, but when she roamed my property for an hour and was heading to the gate, I worried she'd go on the road. I called her. I called the lady who owns her and she said her daughter had let her out. She was going to get in touch with her, as she was at work. FINALLY they came up to the property line and got Nova. Sigh.... not an ounce of control over any of their dogs... they scream and yell at them!!! Geeesh.
Here is Nova a while back when let her in the yard...

Don't do that anymore because her owner said not to, just tell her to go home. Ha! She is soooooooooooooooo sweet. Reminds me of my Maggie!

My plumber just called and he said I will be his first stop this morning! YEAH!!!! 

This is for cat people... you will understand...
