How tough is it to work today?

So, I can safely attest that working today is quite difficult if you’re a UNM fan.  As I type this, we’re watching the Lobos face an formidable foe in Stanford, down by ten points.  Mercer just upset #3 Duke and everyone at 2 KASA is reeling from the fact that their brackets are all but done.  There’s something incredibly unifying about the NCAA Mens Basketball Tourney.  Everyone gets behind the cherry and silver when we can hit the big dance.  With the national attention on the team culminating in a win-or-go-home performance, Lobo Nation is at a fever pitch.

I hope to be writing on Monday about the Lobos heading to the Sweet Sixteen, but if Stanford has anything to say about it, we’ll be licking our paws.

Until then, Lobo Nation… have a great and SAFE weekend!

Bow wow WOW!

I can’t stress enough how great the need is for Santa Fe Animal Humane.  Unfortunately, we face a massive problem with overpopulation of pets in New Mexico.  This often leads to abandonment, abuse and worse.  Every time SF Humane is in the studio, they share remarkable journeys of animals that have faced terrible circumstances, yet are eager to meet their loving, forever families.

My parents have been Chihuahua people for years, primarily due to the fact that their dander doesn’t cause allergies.  Therefore, I have a special place in my heart for the toy breed.  I met a sweet, somewhat shy little guy on the show today named Roo.  Unfortunately, when SF Humane took this little guy under their care, he was missing is front leg and had an injured and improperly healed matching appendage.  Through surgical procedures, rehab and love, this little guy is almost ready to find a loving home he can call his own.

This is just one of the many animals SF Humane tends to and rehabilitates.  I strongly encourage you to visit their website to learn more about the organization and how you can help -whether it be volunteering, making a donation, fostering an animal, or giving one a permanent residence.

I mean, seriously… how could you say “no” to this face?
