The day started really early this morning. The dogs were barking at something. I had gotten up in the wee hours and yelled at them from the bathroom window. But they would start back. I finally got out of bed to get ready for work and went to the back porch. Yelled again to no avail. Then the husband got up. Not good. He asked what was goin' on and I told him the dogs were upset about something out by the barn. He grabbed a flashlight and headed out.
I went into the bathroom and started gettin' ready. Then I heard him yellin'. Not good. He came back in the house. I asked what was the deal and he said (edited for PG rating) "It's another freakin' dog!" Uh oh. I decided it best to walk away at that time.
When I left for work, I couldn't tell what kind of dog it was. It was very social and wanted to play, running in circles. Body condition looked good. This dog belonged to someone. It chased me down the drive as I left.
Around 10am, I decided I better call and check on the husband. He didn't sound good when he answered. He said he let our dogs out and they were so excited to play with the new dog! He thought they would run it off. Wrong! Then he found a heifer with her head stuck in a wire panel. She'd been there awhile. He managed to free her after gettin' the bolt cutters involved. Then he decided he would scare the dog off by shootin' the rifle. Well, apparently the dog has never been shot at cause the husband shot three times into the ground and it just sat there staring at him. He finally gave up and went to work.
He accused me of putting up flyers saying to drop unwanted dogs off at our place. I assured him I didn't have anything to do with it. He just couldn't believe another dog showed up. But we both agreed this dog has to belong to someone just by the way it acted. Nothing like Lucky Dog. I told him that the word must be spreading that we have the coolest dogs and others want to come hang out. He said but they don't ever leave! I replied cause they find out that the owners are way cool too!
Then I reminded him that we were about to catch Mikey if this keeps up. He just laughed. Then said, if the dog's hungry this evening, feed it. Awww, welcome to my canine lovin' world hubby! I giggled and told him he was turnin' into a crazy dog man. He said only because he lives with the crazy dog lady. Whatever!
So I got home this evening expecting to deal with the new doggie but it was nowhere to be seen. I guess it went home or moved on. Maybe it did just want to hang out with my cool kids. Now the husband might be a little happier about having JUST five dogs.
