the more you ignore me, the closer i get

The incessant ringing from my cell phone woke me up at 9 this morning. Having slept only four hours, I said, "Oh, no. I don't think so." I pulled a pillow and my comforter over my head and went back to sleep. At 11 I woke up again and listened to my voice mail to find out who had called. It was Cooper Animal Clinic, wondering if I could bring EZ in at noon so they could wrap her front paw. Last week they took an x-ray of the paw and discovered she's had some form of infection that is making the bones in her wrist and paw very porous, almost like Swiss cheese. Hopefully this can be changed with antibiotics, keeping it wrapped, and not letting her go down stairs and run around too much. I've had to alter her physical therapy a bit to keep weight off of her front paw, which is actually good because it only helps to strengthen the muscles around her hip. It's thought that all the weight she's been putting on the injured front paw has only exacerbated a pre-existing condition, so I've been ramping up her therapy for the past week as much as possible.

I was going to take EZ to the Meet n' Greet in the Heights last Saturday, until I remembered that she's still in heat and it probably wouldn't be wise to have a canine aggressive dog in heat around so many other dogs. So I took Rex, instead. Which was good, because it meant that he could finally have that meeting with his attorney, Laura. We didn't get there until the last half hour of the Mn'G, but we still got to see some really sweet pups. Laura told us that 10 dogs were either adopted or found foster parents, so that was good to hear. Rex and I helped out in the end by driving two Scout's Honor dogs, Tomi and Trudi, back to Happy Tails where they're being boarded. Rex really liked them and wanted me to dognap them, but I reminded him that not only would his lawyer probably frown on that plan, but EZ would probably nip that plan in the bud, so to speak.

Yesterday I wanted one hour for myself that didn't have anything to do with dogs, personal life bullshit, or book business, so I tried to slip away to go to a shop in the Heights that I've had my eye on visiting for quite a while now. But then I offered to drive Becky to our local polling place so she could vote. We figured I could drop her off, I could have my Timothy time, and then I could come back for her later, because there would most likely be a huge line of other voters. There wasn't, so I waited until she was done voting, and then Becky came with me. Which was fine, because I knew Becky needed an hour of simplicity as much as I did, if not more. When we got home an hour later I found EZ in her crate, grinning, her cushion upended, her quilt balled up in a corner and wet with spit where she'd chewed on it, and glaring at me as if to say, I won't be ignored, Tim!

The call went out today for someone to adopt EZ. If anyone reading this is interested in adopting EZ, let me know in comments or contact me via email at timothyjlambert@gmail.com, and I'll forward your information to Scout's Honor Rescue. This is from the Scout's Honor newsletter, sent by Rex's attorney, with a bio about EZ that I helped Laura write:


Here is the much-awaited-for EZ! Most of you will remember the dog that we rescued from the Westpark Tollway. The vet wanted to put her down because of her injuries, but we said "NO WAY," and look at this GORGEOUS girl now. She is healing up nicely and is looking for a home of her own. Here is more about EZ:

EZ was named after the EZ Pass Lane of the Westpark Tollway where she was found on the side of the road by one of earth's angels after she'd been hit by a car. Her right hip was dislocated, and her left front paw was fractured, but her spirit was far from broken. Even after an operation to reset her hip and lots of time recuperating, EZ has been sweet, happy, and loving.

EZ is sometimes known as the EZ2008 alarm system because she's an excellent watch dog, barking whenever she hears new people come inside the house, but she loves everyone she meets and is always happy when someone is around to pet her or snuggle with her. EZ has two speeds: On and Off. When she's On, she likes to go for walks, explore the yard, or pen mysteries under the name Ivana Treatnow. When she's Off, she sleeps; anywhere.

EZ is a shepherd/retriever mix, is eager to please, and is very smart. EZ has the most expressive golden eyes that will melt your heart. She has her foster dad wrapped around her paw, and I am sure will do the same for her new owner! She's great on a leash, knows how to sit, lie down, get in her crate, make crepes, and she knows what "No" means. As kind and sweet as EZ is with people, EZ has difficulty hanging out with other dogs, most likely because of all she has been through. So we believe that the best home for EZ would have a fenced yard where she is the only pet, with an owner who loves to spend time with her.

EZ is currently undergoing rehabilitation therapy on her injuries, but she can go to her new home at any time, and Scout's Honor will still be responsible for EZ's vet care relating to her injuries until she is all healed up. And much to her foster father's chagrin, EZ went into heat before we could spay her and is going through that "time of the month" (although as much as foster dad spoils EZ, he had to put his foot down when she asked him to make a run to the store for her girly products!). EZ's "time of the month" is just about over, and she will be spayed in the next couple of weeks, but again, she is ready to go to a loving home now.
