    A puppy for Christmas?

    So, about 6:30 I went out to get a beer, and what did I see on the back patio? A puppy. Literally. A little puppy staring me in the eyes. Friendly. Ran up to me.

    Where we live I can't imagine it's one of the neighbors, but we'll put the fliers out tomorrow.

    No collar of course. Tail appears to have been docked. He looks to have been neutered? At least I can't see anything on him...

    I'm guessing someone did a little drive on Christmas eve and dumped him....

    Needs a bath... And probably a name....

    I'm thinking 'Santas Little helper'

    Santa's little helper! Cute face. Strange that a pup that someone paid to have neutered would be tossed out. Hopefully someone visiting a relative or friend and the pup got out of the yard when they weren't looking. If you find the owner, read them the riot act about collars and tags. If you can't find the owner, try a local vet's office and have them scan for a microchip. Jim.

    Yeah, He's never been on a leash that's for sure.

    I'm guessing 3-4 months old?

    I'll print up some flyers and put them around the neighborhood tomorrow.

    But you have to understand, it's not like we live in a 'neighborhood'. Houses are pretty far apart out here. I'm guessing someone dropped him off here because we have two houses right across from each other and they though it would give him more of a chance. With the coyotes out here, He wouldn't last the night, thats for sure...

    At any rate, if we don't find his owner by monday, he'll be getting a trip to the vet to get checked for chips, and if none, to probably get a checkup and whatever shots we can't be sure he did or didn't get...

    (I really shouldn't be talking like we are going to keep him after less than an hour, but I really don't think he ran away from the neighbors...)

    Bucky's doing great. The puppy is running her ragged and teaching her some manners

    It's definitely making for a humorous Christmas Eve...

    Ahh, and what great timing. We've got brand new carpet and what is almost assuredly a non-house-trained puppy....

    Anyone wanna take any bets on the puppy leaving a couple of presents under the tree? Santa's Little Helper indeed.

    Looks like a nice pup Brent. I hope he gets to stay with you.

    BTW, those aren't chestnuts roasting on your open fire.....
