    This is not normal for me

    I am not the type to take in strays. Buddy was the 1st in over 20 years.
    Well......it happened again.
    I was at the post office and there was a small dog wandering around the parking lot. I stuck around for about 15 minutes to make sure he was safe, expecting him to be waiting for someone in the Post office. After a while he started going under the cars in the parking lot. There was a near miss and he was almost run over but I hollered at the car to stop and got him out from under the car. After that he went and hid between some a/c units at another building. Whenever I would try to walk away he would bark at me. Kind of bark when someone leaves their dog in the car and it is trying to call it's human to come back.

    There was a Sheriff watching who said she should probably call the dog catcher and asked if I would keep an eye on him till they came to take him to the dog pound. I asked if I could take him and try to find his home and if no luck maybe a new one if he didn't end up staying with us.
    So....here we go again with the lost dog thing.


    He seems to like me.

    Getting some scratchies from my wife.

    Meeting our dog Jack.

    Chasing each other.

    Still waiting to see if he can talk.
    I'm betting he can but is just a little bit shy right now.

    You are a good man, and you needed an extra dog to watch over the deer.

    I just finished printing found dog posters that I will be putting up at the post office and other local bulletin boards.
    He did not have a collar and was very hungry and thirsty.
    He also appears to have had a fairly serious past injury. There are large scars at his right hindquarters that have healed. Plus a couple lumpy ribs.
    I am not overly confident in the past care this guy has had.

    once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right
