Sweet little visitor




Last night we had a visitor in our home. Adrian heard some scratching outside so he opened the door and a miniature poodle came into our home. We thought it was one of our neighbors. It was a stray. What were we supposed to do? Leave it outside in the cold? No way! So, we let the little mut in. At first, he growled at us because he was scared and obviously didn't know us. However, once I picked him up (yes, I'm the brave one in the family), he was fine. He actually liked me more than Adrian which was funny. But, he got used to Adrian and let him rub his tummy. We didn't know what to do with him. It was time to sleep so we put him in our bathroom and shut the door. That didn't work. He kept barking. He obviously wanted to roam around and see his new world. So, we left the door open and he roamed around ALL NIGHT LONG. I'm not kidding, he didn't want to sleep. We both didn't sleep well but it was still fun to have a visitor. This morning, Adrian called the animal rescue center and they came to our home to take away the dog. However, while they were here, the stupid owner came. How can one not take care of their dog? He is very irresponsible and according to my husband, "he should be shot." Adrian loves animals especially dogs. The poor dog needed some serious grooming and he was missing some teeth. So sad. I think he liked being at our house. Well, some day Adrian will get his very own dog and we will treat him/her with kindness. At least we were dog owners for one day. I will miss that dog.

That's actually a Bichon Frise and I'm so sad to see how poorly taken care of he is. My brother and one of my friends have one just like him but they are both in way better shape. How sad. I'm glad you could care for him for the night. I'm sure he was grateful to have a nice, loving home.

The dog really needed some TLC! That was really nice of you to take care of that poor dog! I thought you were going to say that you were keeping the dog. I'm glad you got to take care of the dog for the night...the dog needed you!

I can't believe you picked up a stray dog (eww!). Also, maybe the owner had lost the dog a few days ago, and so it looked like he didn't take good care of it. Actually, I have no idea, but it's a good thing there are people like you out there in the world.

I am so glad there are people out there that appreciate animals. That poor dog. I'm glad he had you guys for at least one night.
