We woke up this morning to find a beautiful golden retriever sitting on our front porch. He's wearing a collar without tags and, when I took him to the vet this morning, he didn't have a microchip either. We've spent all morning trying to spread the word and get him back to his owner, but haven't had any luck yet. EZ E and Kicky (and maybe all of us) are hoping this is another Velma the cat sort of deal- she's been with us since September. It looks like we'll be spending the weekend
UPDATE: Just found a pile of dog treats that someone left in our driveway. It appears as though we may have a new pet.
UPDATE 2: We've decided to name him Eero and spent the afternoon playing fetch and running around the yard. We're in love. He got a bath and a fancy new collar, leash, toys, and treats. Next stop...vet. :) Three cheers for our beautiful new dog!
UPDATE 3: Not sure what the deal is with the dog treats, but Eero, whose real name is Buddy, has wonderful owners after all. Apparently, he took off with his cat friend last week and his owners have been frantically searching for him. They were thrilled to find their sweet dog and he was thrilled to see his family. We'll miss him (and I'll eventually stop crying), but we're happy that Buddy's reunited with family.
