Since the fire and strife of New Year’s day and since, we’ve been concerned not only about Dave & Nancy, but about their dogs. Especially Ruby, our Rotor‘s only offspring. There’s a small "issue" with Ruby’s stance, so Nancy decided she would not be shown or bred, and decided to find a good home. Very picky, these pros.
Bea & I went to the Horseman’s Association fund-raiser for Dave & Nancy the other night. I came prepared to write a check for Ruby in an amount substantially more than the actual price she was asking, and then we would be sure of finding a nice home — especially one close to ours. But Nancy had already found someone, just over in Santa Cruz, and everything sounded good. That I was offering double the price had not the slightest thing to do with anything. First, Nancy had already made a deal, and second, she knew she had found a good home and was very comfortable about it. Well, I wrote the check anyway, talked Nancy into taking it for their general needs, and we carried on.
And that’s good news.
