The Eleventh Hour Scenario

Happy May Day!

We are saying goodbye to the April Showers and the fickle weather, right? Most of us are hoping we have seen the last of the snow and some relief from the pounding rain. Who can guess? In reality, as we move through life we learn there are many unknowns. There is no way to plan for every unfortunate situation.

IMG_0553OwyheeStar received notice that Puppy #5’s family has such a situation and they cannot bring him home. It was an eleventh-hour notice. That is never a good thing for us or the pup. So we say May Day-May Day-May Day. Is there anyone who contacted us before about a Longhair or that has been secretly hoping for one that is ready? Cliff is meeting two families with their pups on this coming Friday in Burns, OR.

Of course, he is an awesome little pup. He has a very good nose–would do well for the shed hunter, etc. Here is his first swim!

We are sending out a little May Day distress signal to you all. It would be ideal (for the puppy and our situation) if he found a home where he could join his family at the same time the other pups are leaving. Thank you, for your consideration.

 

May Day–May Day–May Day

It derives from the French ‘venez m’aider’, meaning ‘come help me’.

It is repeated 3 times ‘Mayday, Mayday, Mayday.’

“A Mayday situation is one in which a vessel, aircraft, vehicle, or person is in grave and imminent danger and requires immediate assistance. Examples of “grave and imminent danger” in which a Mayday call would be appropriate include fire, explosion or sinking.

Mayday calls can be made on any frequency, and when a Mayday call is made no other radio traffic is permitted except to assist in the emergency. A Mayday call may only be made when life or craft is in imminent danger of death or destruction.”

In aviation, in addition to fire, a ‘Mayday’ distress call could be used for engine failure, electrical failure, fuel starvation, disorientation, control failure, or any condition where the safety of the flight is in question.

    Dave and I would love to bring him home unless he is spoken for by a family who has requested a long hair male earlier. Let me know so we can make arrangements if this is a possibility. Thanks Cheryl Dave Emma and Alice
