Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Friday the 7th day of April, 2017.

Yesterday was beautiful weather wise in our city.

After home from work we went into our regular routine.

Alvin goes into the back yard, Alvin eats, Momma gets changed and Alvin hides under the table when I mention “going for a walk.”

Once I coaxed him out and we headed outside as usual he is okay.

Enjoyed our walk.

When home, I heated up some leftovers and made my lunch for today.

Just in a few minutes into supper – Alvin jumped off the sofa and started his growly barking.

I knew that something was wrong.

I ran to the window and saw some children on their bikes across the street and with them a puppy – young black dog.

He did not appear to really be with them so I put down my supper and went onto the porch and called out to them.

“Does he belong to you.”

Answer “No.”

Without waiting I closed the d0or behind me and in my sock feet ran down the steps and out onto the street to the black dog.

I could not see a collar or any means of identification.

I was afraid that with all of the traffic on our street that he would get hit so I tried to keep him on the sidewalk at least.

Just as I was doing that one of the neighbours across and two doors down came outside.

I told him what was wrong and together we tried to catch the black dog.

Only he did not want any of that …..

He ran down the street and up the back lane and onto a driveway.

We have a bunch of duplexes and we have back lanes so driveways/garages back onto the lane.

I was able to get him to stay there and he even came and let me stroke him.

Beautiful young guy.

“S” the neighbour that was helping, his garage backed onto the back lane and was only a couple of doors away from where the pup was held out.

Figuring that was his home – “S” went to see if they were at home.

No luck.

We tried to coax him into S’s backyard where he would be safe until we could find his parents.

Tried and failed several times.

Sorry but I have to shorten the story or at least no more details as I have to leave for work, ARGH.

I said if we had some treats maybe we coax him into the back yard.

S brought out some beef jerky and we managed to get him safe.

Once done, I went home to get some shoes and lock the house.

Just as I was coming out ….. looked liked some action at the house.

The parents came home.

Guess what.

Mrs. had gone into labour and they had to leave the house quickly and pup got out.

Happy ending.

Must have been false labour …. anyway I did not ask for details.

Gotta go.

 

Special Hello to:  you, today.

Always, Carol and Alvin
