Ringworm! 10-28-11

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?
