Really? I stopped by our daughter’s apartment yesterday afternoon to drop off some Halloween costume options and a bunch of winter wear, only to find out that her first day as an official ROAR volunteer, scheduled for today, had been cancelled due to cases of ringworm found among the animals.
How Ironic: Apparently our daughter handled the disappointment well. Her response was: “I don’t want to get ringworm.” She’s smart enough to know that no matter the passion for pooches, who needs that.
Postponing Gratification: Is this a test? Does anyone know how long it takes for an animal to recover from ringworm? And so many animals. Oh dear, when will she finally get there?
