This little guy appears to be about 6 - 8 weeks old. Likely a beagle or daschund mix. No, he isn't staying. At least not longer than the weekend. And, no, Jan did not bring him home. Nor did he follow us home.
Jan was drinking coffee and talking long distance to a friend this morning when she saw a car pull over to our side of the road and slow down. It stopped and a man got out carrying a puppy. He asked if she recognized it. Said he'd found it in the road in front of Walgreens and was looking for the owner. When Jan said no, he looked disappointed, pointed across the street and said, "The lady over there told me there's a lady over here who would take it in and find the owner. Isn't that you?"
You know what Jan did, don't you? She laughed, said, "Here, give him to me," and brought him into our home. Can you believe that. She sat down to finish her phone conversation and we dogs all rushed over to check him out. So the little guy did his one good deed of the day. He got even with Jan for us. He peed all over her leg.
Other than that he's been a little pest. He wants to play with us, not with toys. We have to keep telling him we're older, it's hot and humid, and while he's staying here, he has to respect our boundaries. He doesn't bother the cats, though.
|Sam, puppy, Merci|
Update: Jan named him Luke.
