    It's Been A Good Night!

    It's been a great day. Well, hideous at work, but it got better once I got home.

    My best friend just got a job at one of the local schools where I live, so she'll be moving here from GA. We walked a few blocks away from my apartment and went to a Thai restaraunt to celebrate.

    On the way back, we saw a beautiful rottweiler mix puppy about 4 months old. As soon as he saw me, I whistled to him and he came right up and gave me kisses. He was all by himself. Well, thankfully, he had a collar on with all the info. We called and a lady told us it was her "grandog" and her son lived two streets over from where we were. I picked up "Jed" (name on the collar) and we set off for the house. Jed just laid his sweet face right on my shoulder.

    We finally got up to the house and his owner was ecstatic! Apparently, he didn't know there was a hole in his fence and Jed had wriggled out. He thanked us profusely and wanted to give us money, but we wouldn't take it. We were just happy Jed got home safe.

    It was a good way to end our day, although Jed was such a cutie pie, I wouldn't have minded holding him a little longer.

    You did a good thing finding his home. Hopefully his fence will get fixed, and he won't get lost again.

    Actually, they weren't frantic because they didn't know he was gone. Apparently, they had just let him outside to play in the backyard by himself. He must have gone straight to the hole and got out.

    I think he was probably "lost" for all of 10 minutes. (and only about 1 block away from home)

    But yes I do agree, it did feel good to take him home and that it all turned out ok.

    Hehehe...it was funny, as we were walking away, my husband looked at me and said, You know, if that puppy didn't have any tags on, I know you....he would've gone straight home with us tonite. Of course he would have!
