long entry. please read. it’s worth it.
well. the hot count has improved to an even 70.
billington took me out for 2 hot dogs yesterday; we went to this place.
check this out:
on another note. i must relay a story of my most recent appalachian adventure.
a local dog (canine, not sausage) spent a lot of time around the camp. he was really friendly and personable; well accepted by everyone on the NP team. he was especially well accepted by our cook for the week (from IL, but not NP related). she would feed it and provide bedding for it.
note: this dog had a collar.
so come friday, she buys a leash for the dog.
and on saturday, she takes the dog home with her.
that’s right, our group was indirectly responsible for a dog-napping.
i then got this email; i’ll post it here, but the names have been changed to protect the innocent:
I have some very sad news. [the dog] couldn’t be saved. He is 9-10 years old. He had heartworm, and was in extreme kidney failure, and had a greatly enlarged prostate. He was in constant pain, which is why he yelped during the group photo. We tried, but he was just too sick. We had him put to sleep this afternoon, which was very hard for me to do.
We loved him, gave him a warm place to sleep and good food. Other than that we could do nothing for him. We spent a lot of money trying to help. My husband and I were with him to the end, talking to him and petting him.
So in the end, we stole a dog from Appalachia; and then killed him.
Orchestra concert tonight at 730.
I’m heading home this weekend to relax and do homework.
Peace out to y’all.
