Aurora and I found Charlee, wandering down the street all by herself. It was a beautiful spring morning – nice and cool and not humid — a perfect day for a walkabout, if you’re a husky. And she was a beautiful dog – clean and well-groomed, healthy.
Also it was before 6 a.m.
I figured that someone had gotten up, let the dog out into the backyard and some other one had left the gate open, maybe even the night before.
I didn’t know where she belonged, and it was too early to knock, so I hooked her onto a leash and took her with me.
Which was an excellent place to take her – because I was meeting dogs (and humans) and going for a run. In the woods.
So we ran – Charlee and I hooked together by a leash. (I didn’t dare take her somewhere unfamiliar and then lose her.) Charlee thought I should run faster but she was quite charmed by this mass of humans and dogs and treats (?!)
She had a blast.
We returned and I dropped Aurora with a friend while Charlee and I headed to a vet to see if she was micro-chipped. (Nope.) Then Charlee and I wandered around the neighborhood where I found her. She did not seem to know the houses and no one recognized her. /sigh
I was unsure what I was going to do – I did not feel that I could keep both dogs. …Then M said she’d take Charlee.
And so she did.
I don't do this often - it is poorly done and a reallyreally stupid idea, unless you're sitting with the camera in the back seat while someone else is driving. Or stopped at a light. But then she picks up her head and looks at you to complain about the lack of forward motion.
But I have visiting kidnapping rights.
Also – you’d have a better picture, except she rolled in something (dead dear) really stinky and I after I clean her up (omg!) she does need to go home.
And I’m really happy that this dog (who can open jars and pull tab cans and rolls in dead dear) wandered into my life.
