Another Intruder



Well, it's after midnight this morning and we're trying to do a fast post.  Wednesday was one of those days.  The computer wouldn't finish loading in the morning.  We spent the afternoon trying to download elusive Windows updates.  (Don't even ask!)  We never did get to the Christmas card emails we intended to send out.

By sundown we dogs hadn't even given Jan her evening walk.  But there was more to come - a knock at the door.  Two neighbor boys wanting to know if Jan was missing a puppy.  Nope!



Boys: "We've been asking around and no one knows who this puppy belongs to."

Jan:  "What are you going to do with it?"

Boys: "We'll have to take it home and knock on some more doors after school tomorrow."  (Good idea.  Not safe to go knocking on doors after dark.)

Jan:  "Which one of you is taking it home?"

One Boy:  "I can't."

Other Boy: "I can't either."

Jan:  "So what are you going to do with it?"



The conversation was longer.  We just hit the highlights.  It dropped into the 20s or low 30s last night and will again tonight.  The boys promised to go knocking on doors after they get home from school activities tomorrow.  Jan doesn't have much hope the boys will keep their word, but sometimes kids do the right thing.



Meanwhile, we've got an intruder here, sleeping on our beds, drinking out of our water bowls, and playing with our toys.



We're going to see if we can find some folks around here who will post his photo on Facebook tomorrow.  It's too late tonight.  We hope he has an owner because we can't keep him.


He spent the evening crying, trying to get us old timers to play, trying to steal Jan's dinner, tripping her and sleeping cuddled against her feet.  In between he played with some of our toys, including Mr. Squirrel.  Now that he's rested, we figure it's going to be a long night for Jan.

We hope the puppy is properly thankful Jan took him in temporarily and we didn't chase him out.  Jan will be very thankful when he's safely home.

   We'll be joining PepiSmartDog's Thankful Thursday blog hop.
