After Vladika’s therapy session, we bumped into Wade, who has worked with the homeless in Abbotsford for many years. A few years ago we often took food to feed the homeless in an Abbotsford park, where Wade and his helpers looked after them and some of our own people helped as well. He has promised to come to visit us one day. While in town, I bought a large box of dog biscuits for Andy’s dogs that have recovered from their bad experience. Andy thinks that they must have found some spoiled food in the field [I imagine it could have been a dead duck or some rodent] and ate it before Andy could have noticed it, as he is always watchful about their behaviour. Yes, they did enjoy the biscuits, but they were rationed to three biscuits each.
