Today was not the Sunday I had imagined; there were tons of new older cats to get pictures of and my partner in crime had ideas with pups in silly Christmas headbands. However, I did not get to do any cats, and the amount of shelter dogs captured was limited due to 2 people wanting portraits done for their very insubordinate dogs and an emaciated pregnant (due any day) lab mix who bolted out and down several blocks. That was a scary few moments. It was raining and about 40 degrees, I was running and yelling at cars to stop. Finally a couple of good Samaritans stopped in their pickup truck and we were able to coax her from out underneath their truck. Took me laying stomach-down under their engine in the wet road to get her out...but I'm thankful she is ok. Not sure how I would have handled any other outcome.
*Update- momma had her puppies last night, NINE of them. Whole group is healthy and safe in their foster home. She went into labor not long after I left!*
