This little guy was lurking in our yard today when Dave came home from work. He went in the back yard to clean up the mess that the raccoons made last night and discovered him digging in our garbage
. When I peeked out the window Dave told me to go get him a bowl of food, I brought it out to him but he didn't want it (probably because he had already eaten our garbage). I started talking to him on my way back in and he looked right at me and his tail started wagging. So I flung the back door open all the way and got down on all 4's and started talking to him to see if he'd come in the house lol. He wouldn't really go near Dave but I got him to come in right away. He couldn't be more than 6-10months old. He still wanted to play and enjoyed watching me throw the tennis ball and then watching me
run down the hallway to fetch it for him lol. I got a kick out of it lol. Dave went over to the office to see if anyone knew who's dog he was, but when he came back and said they didn't know I went ahead and went into my "save the puppy" mode lol. I gave him a warm bath, which he was so good for! I was really surprised because as bad as he smelled I knew he was outside dog. He stiffened up when I was lifting him into the tub but stood real still while he was in there. It was soo cute! He just laid his head on the side of the tub and watched Dave while getting massaged by me lol. He only tried to get out once and that was towards the end, all I had to do was put his front paws back down in the tub and tell him to "stay" and he didn't move. It was great! After the bath he had a serious case of the zoomies lol. I even put some flea drops on him, cause he had them...bad! I felt horrible for him. He was such a good puppy. After his bath and drinking 2 1/2 bowls of water (he lapped them up quick), Dave put his collar back on (no tags) and took him over to the office. One of the ladies that work over there has a daughter and she walked him around the park to see if anyone knew who he was. Dave told them to call us if they didn't find his owner and we would take him in until we could find his owner/new home. He was really sweet you guys. But he's long haired so we wouldn't have been able to keep him, Dave was having breathing problems the entire time he was in here. But he still wouldn't just put him back outside. Had they brought him back we would have had to just put him in back with a blanket and stuff. I don't really like out-door dogs but it's better than just being shoved outside with no shelter and no food. Which obviously he didn't have or he wouldn't have been digging through our trash right? Anyway..I hope they found his owner and I hope it was just a case of he got away and not a case of who cares about the dog. Ya know?
This was taken about 10 minutes after he got in the house lol. I was petting him and he just rolled over and had me rubbin' his tummy
Please excuse the laundry on the couch lol. I was in the middle of folding it when Dave came home.
See how skinny he is..are Brittany Spanials supposed to be that skinny?
Yummy cold water
Here puppy puppy!
