Is this little dog cute or what?
Our paths crossed, literally, last Saturday morning. We were on our way to our first meeting of our local garden club (trust me when I say that story is worth a post all of its own) when traffic suddenly stopped. We couldn't figure why until one of the cars in front of us slowly inched past a very frightened little white dog.
My husband came to a complete stop knowing that I would be jumping out of the car. The frighten little dog darted to the middle of the six lane street as I came around the front of the car. I was sure she would be hit by car if I tried to get closer so I kneeled down and called out to her. To my amazement she came right to me, almost jumping into my arms before her little body went limp with relief.
She had no collar, no tags, no chip. She was dirty, tired and hungry. She was scratching due to the fleas and she was way too this yet this little scamp of a dog was wagging her tail.
She had no reason to trust anyone and here she was trusting us to make things better for her. Apparently no one is looking for her, she isn't one of the many dogs listed under lost on Craiglist and no one has responded to my listings for a found dog, which I don't understand. She is one of the cutest little dogs I have every seen and her personality is simply precious.
She took to my husband immediately which proved to be a smart move. And my sweet husband took right to her. He has been infavor of keeping from the start. She seemed to fit right in with the rest of the family too. She follows us around never lettong us out of her site. On Sunday she insisted on only being inches away from me, even napping close by while I planted flowers.
So it is no big surprise we are thinking of keeping her. The only thing that holds me back is Zoey. Zoey's nose is so far out of joint that it is on her tail. If you are a regular reader you know what a special bond I have with my Chihuahua and if this addition to our pack makes her unhappy
it is a no go.
So I will have to let you know if my three dogs at home shall become four.
