Better late than never.....

I am a middle aged grandmother, not a schoolgirl hoping for a snow day, so I truly hope that tonight brings showers instead of the promised flurries!   I have never been a fan of winter driving and Rascal has a date at the 'beauty parlour' / aka MacBeth's tomorrow.  
If I have learned one thing in fifty seven years, it is that there is no point in worrying about the weather!    It is much more useful to make sure one is ready, eh? 
So this afternoon, I will make sure the snow blower is within easy reach and ... equally important .... that there is gas in the jug.   I'll rummage around and get out the scoop and the shovels.  
Isn't it a bit early to bother with all this?  Not at all!   Anyone who was here in Nova Scotia in 2004 will recall that we had such a wild storm the first week of November that the military was called out for disaster response feeding and shelter in the valley!
Being prepared is never a waste of time!    Kind of like listing adoptable pets online, eh?
I am happy to report that The Cape Breton SPCA has a few of its adoptables listed on Petfinder again ... which of course means in turn that they can be listed on the homeless pet site.
While there still is no specific info as to whether any of these thirteen dogs are altered, there ARE lots of lovely pictures and chatty details to try to impart a sense of each one.   There is even a crystal clear trumpeting of the fact that the adoption fee has been waived for Betsy, who is senior.
It is early days to tell if these listings will be kept current.    At least now adopters have the opportunity to meet these beautiful boys and girls!
What time is it?   It is always time to pull out all the stops when promoting homeless pets!  At the end of the day, it is the only way we will ever get to No Kill Nova Scotia!
