Little Miss Marley has left the homestead and is headed for her new home at Flat Broke Farm AnimalRescue in Pengrove, CA.
The shelter had previously told me that they would reimburse me for the vet visit and the blood test. But it's Christmas time and they are a non-profit organization rather than a facility operated by the city or county. So I told the vet tech to just give me a receipt for the donation and I'd write it off on my taxes. By his expression, I could tell he was surprised. Out of the blue I had come to the rescue when Marley was dropped off and they didn't know what to do. I had offered to foster her in an appropriate setting and see to her medical checkup. And now I wasn't even going to ask them to reimburse me for the medical expenses. Happy Holidays indeed!!!
'Tis the season for giving as the saying goes. I may not have much at the moment, but I did what I could. My Christmas gift this year went to a homeless stranger in need. I hope Marley will have a happy and healthy future with loving friends and companions.
Rise up this mornin
Smiled with the risin' sun
Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin' sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Sayin' "This is my message to you"
"Don't worry about a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright"
Singin' "Don't worry about a thing
'Cause every little thing gonna be alright!"'
