Boy, is it ever snowing! It sounds as if I could have a foot of snow. It may not all fall tonight, as we are under a huge storm that is hanging in here till late in the week, but I figure we will have a pile of snow by the time the storm moves on toward the weekend. Holy Toledo! I brought home some work in case I can't go in in the morning. If the whole mess doesn't fall tonight, can probably go in. I'll see how it goes.
Yesterday I was leaving the house to take trash to the dumpster, and I hadn't much more than left my yard and I found a lost dog. Yeah, go figure, me finding a lost dog! LOL! What is it about me and finding those critters? He was a beautiful, sweet German Shepherd, and he was panting like crazy. Poor guy needed water in the worst way. He didn't want to get into the truck. Even though he was a big dog, my truck is big, too, and he just looked at the open door like "You are kidding, aren't you?"
Fortunately, he had a tag with his name and a couple phone numbers on it, but I didn't have my cell phone. I backed up the road and ran into the house for my phone and some water. When I got back out, I couldn't see him, but he showed up when I called his name .... "Tiny"!! Yep, that huge dog, probably 80-85 pounds is named Tiny!! Anyway, I gave him the water which he gulped down in nothing flat, and while he did that, I called the phone number on his tag.
The man on the phone was startled, because he said Tiny was outside just a half hour ago! We talked about where each of us were, and we were both surprised that Tiny had traveled nearly two miles! We agreed to meet about half way, which was on my way to the dumpsters. Then, I had to coax Tiny into the truck! He did get in, but it was a bit of a struggle for both of us!
David, Tiny's owner, was really glad to see him and vice versa. We figured out how he got there. One of my neighbors, Bill, is a handyman, and he had been at David and Tiny's house doing some work. When He left on his ATV, Tiny followed him. David didn't think about it, because he has followed the man before, but usually turns around at the end of the driveway, so David went back in the house! Poor Tiny had followed until he was lost, apparently, but he was still following Bill's scent! Amazing!
I'm glad Tiny is home. He is a really cool dog. If I had room for a big dog, he would be a good candidate for living at my house! He stole my heart, but to be honest, it's a rare dog that doesn't! Heaven help me if I find one of these lovable furries with no locatable home!!!
Are any of you watching "Harry"? It's that new show on NBC with Kathy Bates. I'm liking it! She represents the kind of lawyer I'd like to meet!
Oh, and how 'bout that GE commercial with the dancing elephant? I just love that!
OK, I'm getting loopy! Back to couch vegging. Later, gators!
