So…one of the other things keeping me busy this week has been an unexpected although not entirely unwelcome guest.
He’s super damn cute.
The vet’s office says he’s probably about 6 months old, some kind of retriever or lab mix, still has the family jewels, and is not (unfortunately) microchipped.
I got him some food, water, a leash, a rawhide bone, tasty doggie snacks, and a flea drop treatment (from the vet, not OTC, don’t worry).
Also, he found a toy.
He pretty much won’t put it down. It’s assaulting me with cuteness.
I made some flyers. I’ve put in ads on Craigslist and other lost/found pet sites including my local humane society, so far only one bite. I’m asking for the potential owners to at least send photos or describe something about him so I can be sure he’s going back to the right home. And, if it turns out that his owners don’t show, then at least I feel like I’ve done everything possible to find them.
In the meantime, I’ve lost an expired Sally Beauty membership card, two pens, the aforementioned stuffed animal, a sock, and one Cat, who refuses to come out of the pantry. I’ve had to deliver her food and water to her as long as This New Dog is in the house. Such is the life of 2N, The Unsinkable: Unlikely Dog Whisperer. Rescuer. Whatever.
