Tanto Lives - So Far

Tanto is 2 weeks old, I have not killed her yet!

And, I am worn out. Between bathing, feeding, and cuddling, she has been as much work as a newborn baby. Little Buckaroo is enjoying this and helps, but I got the brunt of the job so far. As soon as Tanto is out of the woods and healthy, I am SO done.


Got Milk?

She loves being cuddled and taking her bottle. I really did not know what I was getting myself into. I did start her with her milk in a bowl today because frankly, I am sick of all this. It was cute and fun for about two days. Plus, I don't like anything that stinks in or around my house, so she is bathed frequently. She has also moved out on the screened in porch, maybe this will reduce the stinkiness factor that I am battling.


O.K. she is pretty cute, and O.K. I guess I like her a little bit. But, I am done, really, I am done with all this. If I wanted this kind of hassle I would have had another Buckaroo!

Did I say I am done with this?

Tanto may end up like Arnold on Green Acres. She may decide to live with you permanently.

Just kidding. She is awfully cute though.

You know you love her! God placed her in your care because He knew you would do it - and in a fine way. This baby depends on you for life. She will soon be on her own and ... this won't last forever for you to do the hard work. She is worth it. Keep on keepin' on, you KNOW you love her. You're not foolin' me!

You are a special person to take care of God's creatures in need. Yes, it might be a little stinky, but it will be a great reward in the end...no not that kind of a reward, well unless you get really really hungry!!!!
