Karma has been throwing up & getting sick this weekend.
We are in the 4th week of her Heartworm Treatment.
Finding a Vet while we are on the road is tricky.
I don’t always have the time to stop & find a vet & then I have to consider parking the truck.
Thankfully, today I have a bit of time in-between loads & I saw a animal hospital on my way to my delivery.
I was able to bob-tail & get a walk-in.
Also, with help from @HOTLabRescue who called ahead and arranged for Karma to be seen.
I’ll keep you posted

Can you take a few minutes and get involved too?

Well, low and behold I got a barrage of @Replies from Tweeples commenting about Virginia and the very hot topic of VDOT closing rest areas.

I didn’t have the time or the knowledge BUT, I did need to find a spot to park for the night so I agreed to comment the following day and document what I saw & what I heard that night.

The following day I sent a series of emails and pictures to whoever could use the information better than I could to help raise awareness that what VDOT was proposing was a serious public safety issue.

I had recently joined OOIDA and had corresponded through Twitter with @Land_Line_Mag to find relevant articles on the Virginia matter. (more…)
