found this one meandering around the yard, looking thirsty and worn out...





He just layed down with this sad look on his face like he was confused and disorentated.. I felt so sorry for him

really sad....







Fortunately he had a coller, so I called the owner who came and picked him up. It took me about 10 min. to fall in love with him, and if he ever gets out and about again, He will be welcome to play in my yard...

Awww, that's one cute pup. He does look tired, thirsty, and disoriented. Good thing you saw him. It's a relief to know that he's safe now and it's all because of you. Wonderful series, by the way.

Thank you every one, I appreciate the comments about the series, and the kind comments made. You don't know how hard it was for me to make that call and overcome the inner selfishness that was urging me to keep him, but his owner turned out to be a little girl about 8 years old. I noticed the look on her face when she saw that her dog was all right. The look of relief and thanks in her beautiful blue eyes melted my heart even more. All in all it was an upliftiing experience, and I am glad that I had the fortitude to do the right thing......
