What I found today

I went out to start a pivot today and found a very young puppy. This was a quarter mile from the nearest road. I don't know how she got there but she was very weak and very thin. Callie, of course, was more than happy to take care of the pup while I drove her home.

Jake has named her "flash".

So now I am looking for a new home for an eight to ten week old puppy. I'm happy to nurse her back to health but we already have three dogs, one of which is pregnant. No dog vacancy here. If you know of someone in need of a good mutt let me know.

About the picture: The lighting is all natural. The sun was very low in the western sky, shining almost straight into the windshield after first being filtered through the trees. The lighting turned out perfect as far as I am concerned.


  1. Let Blue take care of her. 3 dogs? 4 dogs? you won't notice any difference!

    Plus, I think Jake and Callie are already attached. It's too late.

    The puppy worked hard to find you-- at least a quarter of mile of wandering, looking for a man with a good heart!

  2. I'm sure the puppy did some wandering to get to where I found her. I'm also sure that some other heartless person dumped her out so they would not have to deal with her. We see that a lot. People have and unwanted pet and they think the easiest way to dispose of them is to drive out in the country and unload them on the side of the road. It's pretty sickening. I'm left wondering where the rest of this litter is.

    As for extra dogs, I would notice. Too many dogs and it's hard to give each one the individual attention they deserve. With the three we have now, two are outdoor dogs and one is indoor. The indoor dog, Daisy, gets all the attention in the world. The outdoor dogs get their share but the more you have the harder it gets. I think two is as many as I want to divide my attention between. So she will have to find a home.

    I will do right by her.

  3. Ask Dan about the Texarkana Kitty....

  4. Dan,what about the Texarkana kitty?

  5. It was a cat that someone had abandoned by the road that we drove to a vet in Texarkana, which waylaid us for a bit while driving to Texas.

    Jim wasnt the biggest fan of me wanting to get the cat to a safe place.
