A little brown dog was running loose in the neighborhood for over an hour today. My neighbor's boys (aged 10 and 15) caught him and were going to take care of him and look for his owner; I told them to let me know if they needed help. Well, their mom said that she didn't want the puppy in the house, so the boys brought him over here.
So,here's my little foster!
The dog is really sweet and pretty well-trained for his age. He is housetrained, thank goodness! While he talks more than Buzz, he's not nippy or smelly and he's very calm.
Buzz really likes the puppy and has been giving him cuddles and cleaning his ears.
The puppy can't stay too long, though. Nice to have a visitor, but I hope his family claims him tomorrow. We've got a road trip to go on and work to do!
I'll try to get some better pictures in the morning. It was dark by the time the puppy came over and I don't have an external flash for this camera.
Am I forgetting anything?
Puppy is already listed as found on Craig's List and at the Humane Society. I put up a sign at the park saying "found brown puppy, call me 734-xxx-xxxx." In the morning, I will take him to the vet to see if he's microchipped and will put up more signs at the park.
And then I will write my dissertation. : )
Wish us luck for a peaceful night's sleep!
