Well, last time I signed on it was to let you all know that Ziggy, myself and my boyfriend moved to Colorado. This time it's to let everyone know Ziggy and I moved home to Oregon. :)
I'm very happy to be back home with my family and friends. We're staying with my aunt for now and I'm currently looking for another job.
Ziggy has been so-so about the situation. He's happier now that things are calmer in his space, but my aunt has three dogs (a Chiweenie, a Huskita and a purebred Pittie) and three cats (and she surprised me with one named Jax from the HSUS-not too sure how I feel about it, but I just couldn't tell her to put him back in the cages at the shelter). Ziggy REALLY dislikes the Pittie because she has no respect for personal space and is so much larger than him. I've had to pull her off of him more than once so far when she's gotten in his face and he's asked her to back off-she doesn't like being told what to do apparently.. Really not too happy about the situation myself but there's not much I can do, so I keep him tucked up in my room as much as possible when she's in the house.
On top of that.... Three children. The oldest, a ten year old, Ziggy doesn't mind, but the younger two... Well, let's just say I'm very proud of Ziggy and his restraint. I've made myself look like Medusa to these kids for swan diving on top of him (both of them on this one), swatting him, kicking at him (just the two year old for these two). So my game plan is just to play hideaway in my room with Zig until I get a job and move out.
I just wish I could let him know how sorry I am, that this was the only option for now but that I'm really trying and going to get us out of there ASAP. Not that I'm not appreciative, I am, it's just not an ideal situation for Ziggy, which really stresses me out.
I'm really hoping for one job in particular, at a call center. Keep your fingers crossed for me-this would be a wonderful step up from toilet scrubbing, haha ;)
Anyhow, here's a picture of Ziggy and his new brother Jax
