Remember a couple of months ago...
the potential dog adoption that ended up not happening?
It just didn't feel right.
And many of you told me that the right dog would come along.
Fate is a funny thing.
This fellow showed up at our neighbors' house.
They suspect he had been there for about 2 days
judging from the disappearance of their cat's food.
Yesterday they called me and asked if we were still looking for a dog.
And so I went to see the fellow.
Filthy, covered with ticks (about 15 of them),
injured on his front leg,
But oh so friendly, loving, enthusiastic!
A real keeper.
Jim and Kathy and I pulled off the ticks, bathed him, and I took him home to meet the crew...
which went splendidly.
I called the local vet...
I called the local shelter...
looking to see if anyone had reported him missing.
No one had.
There were no identifiers on him...no tags, no microchip.
He was neutered, however.
Guessing from size... he is maybe around 5 months old.
Puppy teeth all in tact.
We think he's a Fox hound.
So.....Meet Tucker...newest member of the family....
for now, at least...and hopefully forever!
We have a few things to work on...
like how to properly ride in the gator.
There, that's better.
So, with fingers crossed...
we plunge headlong into puppy training...
hoping that we will be able to some day reap the rewards.
Prior to being plunged knee deep into puppy-dom, I had a little time to finish another sewing project.
This time a linen cross-back apron that can be worn tunic-style over pants and top...
(suits me to a "t"!)
And so, another Friday rolls around.
It was a week full of surprises.
Who could have guessed on Monday how this week would go!
It was a good week, a fun week...
and we will be back on Monday with stories of our weekend.
YOU...have a great weekend!
