You are thinking... really, COUPONS????
Why do I always get behind the lady with the coupons.
She probably is paying with a check too.
Oh, wait....she has some issues.
First thought, no collar = not very good parents. (Yea, MY dog has gotten off her collar before and run away, but we live in a gated community and she looks clean, there is a difference...)
Then I start to hear about this family across the street, people see LOTS of different dogs there. Um hum....they would explain why he was in tact if you know what I am saying....
By the way, they haven't even looked for the dog, do they even care?
So he hangs out with us awhile, we actually come across a real leash. When it is time to leave, we drive across the street to find out what is going on. I go walking up these peoples driveway with my "I am better than you" attitude, polite, but definitely an heir of I know better.
"Excuse me, Sir, is this your dog I found without a collar? He almost got hit by a car crossing the street."
"Oh, my daughter brought it home last night, I am not sure what is going on...."
Here we go I thought. Um hum... Keep in mind the dog is in the car with my husband because I am not about to give it back. The man's daughter comes out...
"Yes, Mamn. He was at the gas station up the road.. They said he was there for two days and had to go, so I brought him here with me. He was so thirsty he cried when I got him water. I bought him some food too. He was very hungry. I didn't have time to get him a collar. I gave him a bath too."
My face and heart melted..... I was so ashamed. We started talking about church and I told her about a youth concert we were having next month. She was very involved with youth at her old church but it was too far, she may attend the concert and bring a friend. I offered to take him and help find him a home.
