…May 13, 2014 is the day Caj Reddock will celebrate his birthday, annually; this being the first was a fun day. Caj of course has been adopted from a Broward County Animal Shelter, in Fort Lauderdale FL, on Christmas Eve 2013. The veterinarian counted back 7 months, permitting his guestimate birth-date. He was 7 months old upon the adoption, knew several commands, and has since increased his capacity to function – in a private dwelling. This puppy has added to the lives of the Robert & Lana Reddock family; making us realize how we are building a lifelong relationship with a puppy that had been found injured back then. For us, there will never be a time that our puppy – who turned into a dog yesterday – should ever return to any shelter. Instead of having a huge, silly and fun filled party, Caj was taken to the Scarborough Animal Clinic to be bathed, nails clipped, ears cleaned, and anal whatever … now, this dog began his first year exceptionally clean and healthy.
Caj is exploring the backyard, after its raking in preparation for seeding and weeding, on his first birthday.
During his grooming time I (Lana) drove to the local gardening center, for a slue of backyard adornments. Late springtime boosts my outdoor planting. I purchased a few salad herbs, vegetables, and even an oriental poppy seed packet. The vegetables were potted in the started micro-fibrous soil-like pouches, which I replanted into larger plastic-like flower pots. The herbs also were replanted into larger vessels. And for usual hope this has good growth and development – I actually once again planted seeds (carrots, radishes, asparagus, peppers, etc.) in a terrarium. Previously this has been successful to a point, however nothing large enough to be proud of.
Caj was curious about the newly planted seeds, seedlings, and replanting’s but did not get into mischief with anything; he just sniffed about then played with his various ball collection. It looks as though we (Bob and Lana) have truly been blessed with a domestic pet, which should be with us more than a future decade.
