So, Monday afternoon I was playing outside and Momma and Colossus were inside. Momma heard me play Woo'ing and thought that was weird, because I usually only do that when wrestling with Colossus.. and he was laying beside Momma. So she came to the door to see what was going on, and found me playing with this lovely pup!
Look what Momma found!
So, Momma brought her into the house and called the shelter to see if she could bring the pup in to check to see if she had a micro-chip and if anyone had reported her missing. They told her to go ahead and bring her in and they'd scan her. So, Momma loaded her and the brothers up in the truck and headed off. I was kinda disappointed, because I love going for car rides!
Anyway, they scanned her and found out that she DID have a chip and not only that, but she had been adopted FROM this shelter back in November! They called the owners.. first time it went to voice mail and the shelter left a message. 5 minutes later they tried calling again and it was answered, then hung up right away. :( Momma asked the people at the shelter what would happen now. They said that they'd take "Sweetie" and put her in one of the Kennels in the back. Momma has been back there.. it's dark with no windows, and lots of dogs barking and in cages. She didn't want that for Sweetie. Momma asked if it would be ok if she took Sweetie back home with her until the owners were contacted. After thinking about it, the people at the Shelter thought was a good idea (they know momma because our family does things for the shelter at different times during the year). They got Momma's phone number and told her that when they got a hold of the owners, they'd call Momma. Momma asked if they knew where she had come from. Turns out, it was over 30 minutes away from our house!!
So, Sweetie came back home with momma and we've been having a blast ever since!
All Three of us playing!
Sleepy after playing so hard
On Wednesday Momma called the shelter back and they STILL hadn't heard anything from the "owners". They said that legally they had to wait 5 days to let us officially keep her, but they were pretty sure that the owners were surrendering her. Which is sad, because she is such a sweet and gentle giant. She's only a year old, but Momma said that she acts like an older dog.. she's had a hard life that has made her grow up faster then she was suppose to. :(
But, the good news is, TODAY is the day that she is officially ours! Momma will go pick up her info from the Shelter later today and see how we can get a copy of her rabies tag. :D
Anyway.. here is my new sisfur, Psylocke! :D
