My friend Yuki rescued a Rottweiler named Brindle in California back in the days of yore. Brindle lived in the back of a pick up truck down the street from Yuki. She'd see the owners coming and going and would stop and ask them if they minded if she gave the Rottweiler attention since she was otherwise left as an outdoor dog with access to water and kibble. The owners said sure and said that if they knew of someone who wanted her they could have her. Yuki was about to leave for Boston to study at a galatically famous pottery studio...in Somerville Massachusetts of all places. And she took Brindle with her. Brindle lived happily with me and Yuki above a three dog Buddhist family in an apartment in Somerville and lived to be 13 years old. Exactly two weeks later I was frolicking around in Dorchester near Ashmont Station and found a stray dog running amuck with another pup. Someone had said they heard her screetch and thought she might have been HBC. She had a slight limp and an uber tight prong collar around her neck. You couldn't cram your fingers between it and the fur on her skin. No tags, not spayed, white brown unhealthy fur, slow walking, you could see her ribs. The first thing I said was: she looks like Brindle. The people I was visiting had cats, so we couldn't take the dog in. I called Yuki, and my friend Gray from the three dog family downstairs from where we lived, and they came over and said the same thing first: she looks like Brindle. We took her for a check up at an animal hospital, contacted animal shelters, animal control, and then promised ourselves we would keep the dog three days while we searched for her original owner. On the fourth day we got her spayed, learned she wasn't 11 or 12, but 6 months with the biggest uterus ever removed in the history of neuters. We stopped calling her Puppy and Yuki named her for her peach fuzzy fur on her paws and head: Momo, Japanese for Peach.
