Frieda knocked on that door and walked in almost three years ago. She is a large personality and I wouldn't give her up for anything. I've been told torties are unusual and if she is any indication, yes they are! Keetah has been with us a little over two years. She came with her companion, Emma, who was sixteen at the time. Emma did live with us for six months before she went to the bridge. Frieda has filled the gaping hole Emma left for Keetah.
Keetah is still deaf and I don't think her hearing will return. She has adapted surprisingly well. The problem, which hasn't been too bad, is getting her attention outside. She has never been let out unattended. For the first year she was brought out on a leash, then we started letting her off and she was good. But she does have a chase instinct. She spent her life in a fenced yard. Emma adapted very quickly, but the intensity of a German Shepherd is a different story.
Mark had to go into town so he is bringing fried chicken home from the deli. No making dinner tonight for me. Yay.
I took a short break to watch Merrick Garland speak about the search at Mar-a-Largo. Not much he could say. Nothing will quell the noise from the radical right. If we haven't learned that by now, we haven't learned much.
