Would ya like to? Mondays (vol 4)

*Best Announcer Voice*Hi there, and welcome to tonight's episode of "Would ya like to? Mondays". We've got a great night planned, but first, a shout-out to all those who stopped by and gave me such great advice. We haven't made a decision yet, but you helped a bunch.

And now, on to "Would ya like to? Mondays". Tonight's question: Would ya like to see what I found this weekend?
Yes, that's right folks. A puppy. I decided to go for a walk Saturday afternoon. There's a cemetery nearby that has lots of really old headstones and is a state historical site, so I was headed there. I decided to walk around the small pond we have in our neighborhood. Our pond is right next to the overflow area/ big ditch for the lake that's really close, and in the area was this little guy. He was just laying in the shade, and about six feet away was a leash wrapped around a broken tree branch with a collar attached. I figured someone left him there and either was planning on coming back and getting him, or abandoning him. So, I brought him home. I put his leash back where I found it with a note saying I had him and my number. I called 3 of the closest animal shelters and gave them descriptions, and this morning we took him in to see if he had a microchip. He doesn't. I'm sure someone was taking care of him at one point, as he knows how to sit and is clean and well-fed. However, you'd think someone would have called about him by now. There are no flyers about him in the neighborhood.

I think we're going to keep him. We bought him a crate today. After the disaster that was my laundry room this morning, I knew he couldn't sleep in there again. We figure if someone does call for him, my littlest dog could enjoy a bigger crate.

Amazingly enough, my other dogs are actually ok with this little guy. Dobby, my Weim, hates all other dogs and most people, so to have him even tolerate this puppy is Amazing. Winky just seems frustrated that she's still the shortest.

Now, if we keep him, he needs a name. Not just any name, a Harry Potter name. Originally, I was thinking Kreacher, since the other two are named after house-elves as well, but I'm not sure that fits. Now I'm thinking Neville. Any suggestions?


  1. Awwwww, What a little cutie! People can be so irresponsible with their pets, but this guy is the luckiest pup in the world to have found you. Good luck with a name - I'm sure you'll come up with something that fits him perfectly. :)

  2. Neville is a great name! Bless you for giving him a home. He's adorable.
