Well I certainly hope we are not going to become THAT HOUSE where people take unwanted pets (we don’t get any funding from the county, yo) but someone on our street drove up with a little black puppy for us today because she was stray and they didn’t want her to get hurt and weren’t sure what to do with her. She is petrified and piddling but extremely cute with a little foxy face. She appears to be healthy and I would guess she’s about 6 weeks old.
As we already have Linus who needs to be separated from some of the pack (due to aggression) and Randi who is being isolated (due to recent surgery), I had to improvise for an area for foxypup. I x-penned off a large area with papers, blankie and food but so far she hasn’t moved from the place we sat her down. Petrified. And piddling.
I wish I had some spare vaccines and puppy wormer on hand but I don’t. These things never happen at times of convenience doncha know. I’ve got an e-mail in to APL to see if/when they might have an opening. In the meantime, we’ll try to convey to foxypup that human beings and other dogs are not as horrible as she might think. And I’ll be praying the neighbors don’t come back tomorrow with 5 more like her.
