....and I'm still a bit pissed about this.
I'm on my way back home from an errand, come to the 4 way stop sign down by the Elementary School and see a car on the right side of the intersection
going very slow and weaving around something in the road. That "something" was a tiny poodle, following every car that came through there like she
was lost and looking for her owner. After that car drove by her, I turned right and she came straight toward my truck and just stopped and sat down in
the road not 10 feet in front of me. Of course, I stop, get out and start talking to her, getting her to come to me. She ran to a house on the corner
and I figure, "That's her house", so I go to the door, knock and get no answer. She sits by the front door and I hope she'll stay there, so I
start walking back to my truck, which is running and sitting in the middle of the road.
She wants to go with me, but a little too scared to actually come to me, know what I mean? I get her to go back in her yard, but as soon as I get a
bit down the street, I see in my mirror that she's right back out in the road, looking for her owner.
Back I go and get her back in her yard. This time she stays.
It's just a little further to my house and I'm worrying all the way. I'm afraid she'll be right back out in the road, someone won't see her or
like too many, won't even try to miss her and she'll be hit. I'm home 5 minutes and just can't stand it, so I grab some dog food and go to check
on her. Now she's sitting at the edge of the road, but as soon as my truck gets within about 50 ft, she comes running right toward it.
Now, I should make it clear that this is a tiny dog, maybe 6-8 inches to the top of her head, it's after dark and getting cold fast. What's
this little girl even doing outside?
Again, I do the whole knocking thing and still no answer. No lights on, no cars home either.
She won't come to me, but I figure she'll come to a female, so I call my ex, explain what's going on and she meets me down there. Sure enough, she
comes straight to my ex. I give my ex the food, she takes the dog home with her, because I can't really bring her to my house. My Great Pyrenees is
really unfriendly to strange dogs and will make a snack outta this one, so the plan all along was to get my ex to watch her till I found the
I found the dog around 6 ish PM, made 2 more trips to that house that night and by around 7 PM the next night and 4 more trips to that house at
different times.... still no one home. I'm thinking, "Who the hell leaves a tiny dog out like that, no food, no water, no shelter, in cold weather,
while they're gone for so long?"
At this point, I'm far beyond pissed.
I tell my ex, "Find someone you work with at the hospital to adopt her, 'cause anyone who leaves a little dog out like that doesn't deserve to get
it back". My personal view is that if you mistreat kids or animals, you are the one who deserves being locked in a cage and beaten frequently.
This has sort of a "happy" ending, in that the owner finally came home, put a post on Facebook about her lost dog and my ex saw it through a friend
of a friend kinda thing, returned the dog and found that the owner was stuck out of town in unexpected circumstances. She said she sent a friend to
check on the dog, but my question is still " How did she get out and why for so long?"
I've just happened to drive by there a few times since and haven't seen the dog, so maybe the friend is at fault, although I still can't
think how she even got out, [ unless the friend let her out, then left meaning to come back later. ..which is B.S. You don't just let a dog out and
leave like that ]
I'd stop thinking people are such assholes, if they'd stop proving me right.
