We had an overnight visitor last night. And in spite of good manners and a pleasant stay, we were glad to see him go.
You see, the visitor was an adorable little ball of black fur, that had been found trotting down the middle of the highway, oblivious to the danger he was in. And with no ID tag, it wasn't easy finding his owners. Turns out a few well-placed signs in the neighborhood where he was found were the highlight of his owners' day. Their call to us about an hour after we put up the signs was hopeful - and then joyful - when we confirmed from their description that this was indeed their baby.
He was a wonderful overnight guest - and our girls - Lizzie the Poodle and Roxie the Poma-Poo - were delighted to have a new playmate. But the joy and appreciation of his owners was the best.
Seems Bear, the 1-year-old Yorkie Poo, escaped by breaking his leash and ID tag at 5 am Saturday morning. In spite of their efforts, the darkness and rain prevented his owners from being able to find him. (The photo is not Bear - but could pass for his long-lost twin!) So, that's how Bear began his weekend adventure.
Love knowing we had a hand in helping - it just feels good! A great end to a wonderful weekend.
