Smile Getting our fill of dogs

Yesterday as I was driving I saw this little gal wandering around near the street. Picked her up and had to take her with me to pick up Tim for an appt. before I could look for her home. No collar/tags.



She had hair matted under her eyes. So I took her home and cleaned her eyes up best I could...she really needed a bath too after wandering around!

I rang a few doorbells with no luck and finally took her up to the housing office. They were able to figure out where she was from, though the family wasn't home. A gal there said if they weren't able to pick her up before the office closed she would take her home for the night. She was a sweet girl.

Since then we've run into 3 other dogs at various places - a shy german shorthair that moved away when you tried to pet her if she was standing but would hop right into a chair with you if you were sitting where she wanted to be . Then a dog that reminded me a bit of Decker in appearance. Very sweet - leaned into me and sat on my foot while I petted her. And another little black viszla type dog that was so excited. 2 y/o full of energy, jumping with joy as you tried to pet her!

Got my fill of dog love the last couple of days!

If I were roaming as a dog.... I would find my way to Patty.... I may not be the sharpest tack in box.... But certainly know an angel when I see one.

LOL, as my husband was walking out that day (we are sharing a vehicle while his is worked on), he told another guy that I was picking him up and had a dog in the car. He said to Tim, "I told you...one day you will go home and find your wife has brought home a dog!" Funny , but still not ready yet...it will be a joint decision for sure.

Sounds like you've had some great dog visits.

What a cute little girl that dog was. Glad you were able to clear her eyes some and get her to safety. Bet she loved riding around with you.

I smiled at your Decker like dog description. Decker did like to lean, however, when it came to feet he often preferred to sneak up from behind you, grab a foot and try to run off with it .

When your heart is ready and the time is right I have no doubt Ali will be right by your and Tim's side helping you both pick out a pup to call your own. And that pup will be one lucky pup!

Until then I hope you continue to get to meet, pet and even share a chair with many other pups.

Oh my. This pup was found out on the loose around here and if owners don't claim them by end of day, the dogs spend the night in the pound.

Definitely going to have to call and see if the dog was claimed later today. Hate to see this golden love in the pound for the night!
