Mom woke up and it was 6 degrees and the wind was howling over the mountain. Mom didn't sleep much, she kept thinking about how cold it was outside and that the poor boxer is in the weather. So she got up put on some sweats and sneakers and headed over. She came back in about 20 minutes.
I greeted her outside, Darcy said No Way it's too cold! Mom gave me the biggest hug!! She said knocked on the door and said Hi my name is ... and I live down the road. I saw you have a boxer and brought some hay for his box. Do you mind if I put it in? The lady blinked at mom and said, sure, no problem. Mom asked her to hold the dog, just in case. The lady got her coat on and came right out with mom. Mom gave her a big bag of Puperoni and said, here, have some treats for him also. She took the treats and said thank you. The boxers box had no bottom in it. So the boxer had been sleeping on the ground. :( Well, mom stuffed 1/2 the bale in the box while the lady held the boxer. Mom struck up an easy conversation and the woman was pretty calm.
When she was done, she looked next door and saw another dog in a box. It was a shepard mix. Mom said, what about her? Want me to put the rest in her box? The lady said, no that's my mom's dog. Mom said, she gets cold to. The lady said, alright. Walked over and held the shepard. Mom stuffed box full with the rest of the hay. Then the dog came over and thanked mom. The lady said, she's really friendly. The dog looked at mom with such gratefulness mom had to look away.
When mom went to work it was 3 degrees outside. The wind chill was -14. As she drove by the house that she dropped the hay on she looked, of course. There were 2 dog boxes with no dogs in site. And no excess hay outside of their boxes.
My mom is the best!
