Last night Momma brought home our new friend, Heidi.
This is not necessarily her name but she answers to it so it's a start.
Heidi is a Black & Tan German Shepherd Dog with Grizzled markings on her back. She almost looks Sable in some areas but Momma says she is definately not a sable GSD and she would know, BOL!
Momma and Pops did Not want us going nose to nose with her the first night. Because they do not know her background.
We had other ideas.
At 9pm when Momma had us shut in the bedroom with a sleeping Pops she took the lost Heidi out to use the bathroom.
Like any smart GSD we had a plan to get what we wanted.
Ruby started barking really obnoxiously in the bedroom while Momma was bringing Heidi up the basement stairs to the sliding glass door leading to the backyard.
She took her out and Ruby continued and with Paisley on the bed I'm sure she contributed, although I was not watching, in Pop's awakening.
Then he stubornly opened the door because he cannot resist an annoying pup when he's sleeping. He doesn't have Momma's will power in that aspect.
Once we were in the main house it only took a minute for me to walk over to the sliding glass door and let us all out to meet the new comer.
Momma was in the far corner of the house where we usually don't go because Heidi brought her there to sniff. She could hear searching doggies in the yard. She slowly trudged through the snow to see who was out - knowing all too clear that we all were sniffing the backyard in search of the new comer.
Then Ruby sounds the "I found 'em - GO GIT 'EM BOYS" call as I like to call it.
Ruby hangs back and we all practically charge to greet her.
Momma keeps us back and calls for Pops. She is quite mad because he told her he wouldn't let the dogs out.
She didn't find out until later that he didn't.
Heidi was very good she completely dealt with our charging her. She was too good.
Momma was surprised. Even when she had enough - Momma had been telling us to back off for a while but we were not in the mood to listen - all Heidi did was lift one part of her lip showing one canine. Like a Elvis lip curl.
She did not bark, growl, or lunge.
Momma told us to back off again...because as she put it, "For Goodness sake, you've got her cornered."
I know she should have bit us. Put us in our place or something but she is a very nice Shepherd.
We didn't listen too well when Momma yelled at us to go inside and Pops was call'n us from the top of the porch still in his underwear and therefore unable to wrangle us inside.
But we eventually got there. Paisley being the most stubborn of all.
Feel Free to Visit FOUND LOST DOG - Heidi's Page.
I'm sure she would love the support of the group in finding her way home.
I was lost once...okay trapped by some people and forced not to return home and it was a bit nerve rackin'

You guys are so nice to welcome Heidi in and make her feel at home while your Mom finds her family. I really hope she's able to find them.
In the meantime, you four have fun.
I think that is so great that your Mom is doing this for Heidi and I know she is probably greatful since you don't know how long she was on the loose.
Sounds like you all will get along quite nicely too!!
I hope Heidi finds her humans.
Heidi sure is a purdy gal! I hope her family finds her soon!
We were lucky to find her but Pops says 4 dogs is too much financially to take care of so although she can have a Pawsome vacation with us we hope her family comes through real quick for her.
We have been puttin' our feelers all over the city and Suburbs so hopefully she can find her way home very soon.
