So I'm out in the front yard doing my private doggie business. Momma is, of course, obsessively watching me because, well, she's Momma. It's what she does. Of course, her obsessiveness DID land me in surgery for bladder stones when she saw me peeing blood...but I could have gotten really really sick if she hadn't noticed, so I guess I can't complain TOO much. Still, a pup would like to have SOME privacy.
Anyhow, Momma's standing in the house watching me, and she says "I swear I just saw a tail beebopping down the street..." As soon as she says this, a beagle puppy comes strolling into the yard, JUST as I had found the perfect spot to do my business. As soon as the puppy spots me he tries to start playing with me! The nerve! Some upstart puppy comes into MY yard while I'm doing my PRIVATE BUSINESS and puppy bows to me! I could hear Momma giggling in the door way. Ok, ok, he WAS pretty cute, I'll give him that. Momma wrestles me back into the house, and this pup tries to follow me!! Momma says "No, no puppy, you can't come in." Cause what if he would have had FLEAS or something!! Or COOTIES! BLECH!
Momma grabs his collar to look at his tags, but he's not wearing any!! OH NO! But...but...he's a PUPPY, he's clean and obviously well taken care of, he HAS to have pawrents SOMEWHERE! Ok, so I'll admit, I WAS jealous that he was jumping all over my Momma, trying to kiss her and she WAS cooing all over him. But STILL...it's JANUARY and it's COLD out there! So Momma tries to hook him up to my outside lead, but he squirmed away and took off.
Momma was pretty upset. She tried to follow him but it's dark out and she couldn't see anything. She came back to the house and told Daddy "If he comes back I'm tackling him, hooking him up to the lead, and calling the police!" She was afraid he'd get hit by a car. And he WAS pretty cute.
About 15 minutes later Momma realized I hadn't actually gotten to DO my private business, so she let me out again. As soon as I stepped off the porch this puppy came sprinting up to me from my neighbor's yard!!! "THAT'S IT!" Momma said. She shoved me back into the house again (I STILL DIDN'T DO MY PRIVATE BUSINESS DARN IT!!!!) and wrestled this dog to the ground. Well, he thought she was playing, so he wrestled back. It was kinda funny. But she managed to get him hooked up this time. When she came back into the house to call the police he started crying. I know, puppy, I miss Momma, too, when she leaves. She called the police, who sent out Animal Control. This poor puppy is just sitting on our front porch crying.
Momma went next door to ask my best good friend, Sarah, if she knew who the puppy belonged to. Sarah said she'd never seen him before, but she felt bad so she gave him a few treats. Then she brought him a bowl of puppy food, which he gobbled up like CRAZY. Momma wasn't sure if this was such a good idea, but...well, he WAS pretty cute. Momma gave him a bowl of water, and her and Sarah stood out in the freezing cold oooohing and aaaaahing over this puppy. I was pretty jealous. The Animal Control guy came, and he was REALLY nice to the puppy. He said that a dog that well taken care of (especially a puppy) clearly belongs to someone, so he said he'd probably have a call very soon about a missing pup. He said he'd scan him for a chip. Like a potato chip? Hm...interesting.
Momma says his owner may have attached his leash to the flimsy ring that comes with the rabies tag or ID tag and the puppy broke it. I've done that before, so I guess it could happen. Momma says she doesn't want to think about what happens if no one claims him. I don't know what that means, but suddenly I'm very happy that Momma watches over me while I pee.
Speaking of pee, I STILL HAVEN'T GONE, MOMMA! What's a pup gotta do to get some attention around here? SHEESH!
