Mini Update

I have pics to share, but I am off to Regionals this weekend and don't have time this morning. I want to get them up- they are a ray of bright sunshine in the midst of sogging flooding... which brings me to the update on Tim and Erin.   As of yesterday, they are officially homeless. The government that said the banks that were too unstable to work on to save houses, were safe enough to dismantle houses. So, the Lynes and the Roseneu family homes (next in line to fall in) were torn down to save them actually falling in. At the same time, the Ministry of Transport apparently is starting to build a dyke to save the road behind the houses.  Unspeakably sad... now they wait to hear if there is any monetary help in the face of this tragedy.  Cross paws folks, they have a fight coming to get any help, it sounds like.

But, on an up note, it's beautiful here, the sun is shining and I am off to volunteer at Agility today and tomorrow. Should be a lovely weekend to hang out, outside with my agility friends and just remember the world isn't all bad.

It's awful that they've lost their home, and the government is working to save the road. We have Tim and Erin in our thoughts, that they can get the help they need and deserve to rebuild.

Surely they will be compensated... We hope.
Paws crossed for Tim, Erin and their labradogs...
