SLICE 17/31- TODAY I TOOK A PUPPY BREAK
No Corona Virus.
Today I did puppies, pretty much all day.
CaPR, the organization that owns Rooney, has three new puppies- Vail, Frisco, and Breck- named after Colorado ski resorts.
The puppies arrived from California about ten days ago.
One of the puppies, Breck, is going to spend the next month or so in Salida, a mountain town about three hours southwest of Denver, with one of the CaPR board members.
CaPR needed someone to transport him to meet her in Fairplay, which is not quite two hours away.
And because I don't have a whole lot going on right now, I volunteered. A drive in the mountains would be nice. And it doesn't feel like I am violating any social distancing rules because I will spend two hours driving, get out of the car long enough to pass off the puppy, and then turn around and drive back.
Today Rooney and I picked Breck up in Boulder, where he has been staying with his brother, Frisco, since he arrived. I brought him, and his crate, and his harness, and his bag of food to my house. Tomorrow, I will drive him to Fairplay.
But this afternoon, he and Rooney played.
Tug of war.
And I laughed.
It was a nice change from thinking about Corona Virus.
And all of its short and long range implications.
Today I took a puppy break.
