I’m celebrating today. I know that it’s not attractive to be too self-satisfied, but today I’m enjoying a victory. I have a neighbor who leaves his poor dog outside day and night, and it cries constantly for want of care and attention. The weather has been so hot lately and I’ve been very worried about the pup. I give him water and food when he runs out, and despite my talking with the owner, nothing has changed. Just when I thought that call calling the Humane Society may be the only option to help this dog, I called my homeowner’s association first. It turns out that my neighbor is in violation of several of the association’s rules! I received a call from the association president today letting me know that my neighbor has been fined, and that another neighbor has adopted the dog. He has a good home now!!!!! I’m so happy.

I’m celebrating with Midsummer’s Peach iced! Wow, this is a tasty tea that gets even better cold steeped. I’m even going to up my rating because it’s that good. I still taste something a bit floral in it, but it’s not bothering me a bit. Today’s a good day!

Victory all round, except for the neighbour who doens’t deserve one. Bring on the celebration!

nuthin wrong with that, I’d be worried for the poor dog myself. We have a similar situation with my neighbour, only the poor dog just gets let out into the backyard where he whines for attn. We’ve never seen them walk that dog, in 5 yrs! but they have two autistic kids and another one to boot. Don’t get me started on the ways they milk the sympathy. Not that it’s easy, but you shouldn’t get special privileges to build a deck violating a dozen code violations bc of it! and they emptied their pool into our yard. OK now I’m rambling. Still, poor dog to be with those ppl… *sighs

Angrboda, I don’t seek to start rows but I couldn’t let this one go. Yay for happy endings!

Indigobloom, you’re not rambling and I totally get it. I don’t know why people can’t be basically decent. Nothing extraordinary.. just don’t be cruel and be respectful of others. Easy!

I know right?! they think they’re getting ahead, making it easier to get what they want but karma has funny ways of circling around. Grrrr, some people

Hooray for the doggie! We have Sandy’s dogs for the year, and youngest works for a neighbor who is soo conscientious that he PAYS her to go check on his dog every day while he is at work, even though I told him she would happily go play with her and let her out. But one HUGE doggie doesn’t have it so well, and there was a while that if my girls hadn’t carried water over there, it would have had none…in 95 and up heat.

Bio

I’m an animal loving vegan foodie, and a card carrying tea fanatic! Didn’t you get your card?

I typically drink my black tea with a splash of almond or coconut cream and a dash of turbinado sugar or stevia. My green teas I typically drink straight, and the same goes for most of my other teas with an occasional exception. I live on the edge!

Please check out my website Cookin’ Vegan at www.cookinvegan.com if you’re hungry.

I’m also a bit of a knitwit. I have an Etsy shop where I sell pretty little knitted and knitting accessories called Baubles 4 Knitwits at www.Baubles4Knitwits.etsy.com.
