Originally, this waas going to be a Wordless Wednesday post. But surely, this evening deserves a blog. The cute little furball above shall be named "Puppy" throughout this story.
Of couse, a normal Tuesday with picking up the kids from school and stopping by the store on the way home. On our way home, we all spot this cute little puppy who we hope is not going to come into the very busy street. However, that is exactly what puppy's intentions were. Gave me a heart attack I swear, millimeters from being hit from the right side of the road. I'm in turning lane, I park it and tell the kids to stay there and I run to stop traffic coming towards me (ya at this point I may have lost my mind) and luckily traffic stops as puppy happily runs across the street. I run after puppy, literally LUNGING and falling on my knees to grab him before he tries to run across again.
Puppy is in car and we drive down every street in the area, hoping someone is frantically looking for this cute little pup. We can't find anyone so we agree to take her (as we discovered when we got home) home. The agreement is as follows: We will take her home, post signs tomorrow and hopefully happily reunite her with her family. Everything shall be grand, I hope.
We get home and while this pup is so sweet and mild, when she is home she is her active self (I can only assume). I have the kids play with her out back as long as they can, taking her inside and out througout the night to let her go potty. Of course, she does not go potty but runs around like a happy puppy. When Star (our 11 year old dog) sees her, she is NOT happy. She's used to being an only dog, she does not want anything to do with this cute puppy. Puppy though, is excited jumping across, up, down and all around to play with her.
Kitty is not happy either (who is about 12 years old) and wants nothing to do with puppy. However, puppy is so excited to see Kitty and wants to play! Even getting swatted a couple times by Kitty. As the night draws to an end, Adrienne says "Well, luckily she has a home". I guess this was a good practice run and shows them that it's a lot of work when a new member joins the family.
So back to the image above, she is passed out on my sorted laundry for tomorrow. She looks peaceful and quiet, she will stay that way through the night right? Right?!
I've posted on a few pet finder sites and tomorrow we will put up signs. Hopefully we can reunite her with her family.
