Do I Smell Like Alpo?

I'm really startin' to wonder. I had the day off today due to the holiday. I planned on spending the day cleaning around the house. Mid-morning the dogs started barking. I look out the door and what do I see....a stray dog!

It looked like the one that came by a few weeks ago. I went out and took her picture. Sent it to the husband and asked if it was the same dog. He called me back and said it was. He asked if I sent out the word that I would be home today cause she just happen to show up! Whatever!

She went out to the barn so I followed. She looked as though she was scavenging for food. I poured her a bowl and she acted like she hadn't ate in days.





The husband was actually disappointed when she disappeared last time. He kinda liked her. Thought she acted like she would work cattle. So he told me to let her be.

I turned the other kiddos out.

They all smelled and ran about. Lucky Dog even had to give an okay.

The most trouble I had was with Diesel. He did NOT like her jumping up on me. He growled and bit at her. She does good to sit and let me pet her. But she really feeds off the others and gets hyper.

If she does stay, we will have to find the money to get her spayed. Not gonna increase the dog population.


**Update on Lucky Dog...He is the happiest dog. Have you ever seen a dog smile? He seems to smile every day. Slowly but surely gettin' over his timidness. Loves to be petted and rubbed. I'm so happy he found us.**

You must have some sort of magnetic doggy fields coming from your place that brings in all these canines. Aww, you are so good to take them all in.
I wish my husband was your vet.We would be rich. LOL!

Mikey said...

There must be a signal going off your place ,"dog utopia, All dogs welcome" She is a pretty girl!

I have heard that pets are a big casualty of this terrible recession. Sad to find it so true. Who would think that you could just drop off a animal, to fend for themselves.

At least a few have found a safe haven with you.

Y'all are soooo good.

I think you might need two GSP's. They're trained really well and make good bed pillows...if there's any room on your bed for y'all, that is.

It's funny isn't it.... but she obviously knows where to get a good meal - they must be able to smell the Alpo from miles away! Aren't the "home" dogs funny when somebody new shows up....Diesel must have already forgotten how it is to be a newbie!!

Sydney said...

What a pretty pup. Looks like your family is growing in number very quickly.

Poor little hungry girl! I hope she stays she's cute!

Rebecca Welch said...

Perhaps you should start a CrazyMRanch Wayward Doggie Fund.

Watch out there now ...with so many dogs, you'll quit smellin' of cow hide and you really will start smellin' of doggie breath!! Course..some people kinda like the smell of doggie breath! ....and anyone would be happy to have found a home with you two!

You must give off some " i have food and shelter" juju.

She is cute however.

bekah said...

aw...its the fence. "If you build it they will come" haha. All the strays showing up at your house makes me feel like there is some kind of underground dog communication network...

Tatersmama said...

See? I always suspected that animals communicate in ways that we don't understand... and this proves it!
What a lucky girl, to have found y'all!

I agree with Rebecca... you need to start a "CrazyMRanch Wayward Doggie Fund".
You need to MONETIZE, my tender-hearted little doggie-magnet friend !!!
