"Only an hour," cautioned my fairy godmother as I grabbed the device and headed for the office...followed of course, by my furry health care staff which has not left me unattended for a single moment since the sickies struck.

Almost as Many Pets As People Rescued in Colorado Floods
By Good News Network Wednesday, September 18, 2013After a week of relentless rains and historic flooding in the state of Colorado, at least 12,000 people have already been evacuated, many by helicopter, over the hundreds of square miles affected.
Among those rescued have been hundreds of animals, including dogs, cats, goats, horses, cows and more.
"There were almost as many pets as people getting off the evacuation helicopters today," the Larimer County Sheriff's Office posted on its Facebook page on Saturday.
Many places, from high schools to churches, have converted into emergency animal shelters, while local humane societies and others continue to work to reunite families with their beloved pets.
American Humane Association has mobilized its Red Star rescue team and is working to help the animal victims of the disaster.
