I noticed I had three texts, but I was on the road coming back home from the airport, so I didn’t know the good news. I drove up and saw Chipper welcoming me home. Then I saw something else…tied back up to his run was…DUKE! I couldn’t believe it. My husband, son, and son’s fiancee all texted me, but I didn’t see them until I had already seen Duke. It turns out that my brother saw him down the road, but couldn’t get him into his truck. So he called my son and he went down there, but by that time, my husband had already seen him on the way to church and picked him up. What has probably happened is someone had him tied up and he got loose and started home. That’s the only explanation I have for why he has been gone so long. It’s lucky I had bought him a collar right before he disappeared so my husband had something to tie him up with. We are going to have to find a better way to restrain him. I wish we could afford a fence. 😦 The bad thing is that my brother actually puts up fencing as part of his business, but I STILL can’t afford it. Bleh.

After all the trouble I had on my trip, it was nice to come home to my precious dog. Btw, the trip back was happily uneventful.

Puppy Pics

I’m sure you all remember Daisy who came to our house a few months ago. Well, she followed our old dog into the woods, and she never came back. I’ve heard a dog since then barking (happy barking), and I’m sure it’s her, so I think a neighbor through the woods kept her. She had a collar, but it didn’t have our name on it, so…. Anyway, I know any of our neighbors would take good care of her, and we really weren’t ready for another dog, especially since our other dog is old. But now a new puppy has come into our lives. For some reason, people tend to dump unwanted animals in our area. This puppy was only about 8 weeks old, and we all instantly fell in love. We took him and got his shots and wormer, and we got an identification tag. My son also got him a tag with his name (Duke), our phone numbers, and our address. But, now, we have to keep him in the garage because we don’t want him running off. So there is much poop cleaning in the garage. We’re working on a better way to keep him restrained since we can’t afford a fence. I thought I would post a couple of pictures of the little darling. The first picture is at about 8 weeks. The second picture is now (a little less than 3 months), but the picture makes him look smaller than he is. He went from 10 lbs. to 20 lbs. in 3 weeks! So heeerrrreeee’s Duke!
