Uh-oh. While driving home from school yesterday, there was a little dog wandering in the middle of the street, nearly getting hit as he was clearly clueless with zero street savvy. I stopped in the road, turning on my flashers, halting the traffic behind me (yes, I've done this before!) but was so close that I could no longer see the little dog and an impatient driver behind me passed in the right lane and my heart jumped into my throat! However, as I tried to get a glimpse of the dog, a car in the oncoming lane stopped beside me, and the older male driver, with an indulgent smile, kindly said "open your door." Sure enough, I opened my door and this little guy hopped into my outstretched hands!
I drove the rest of the way home with the dog kissing my arm and snuggled into my lap. Of course, I immediately posted "Found Dog" on craigslist and created some flyers. When DH got home, we drove down to that neighborhood and taped flyers for a couple blocks around the area where I'd found the dog. However, I received no phone calls, and this morning when I called the shelters to give them a "found dog" notice for their records, they'd had no inquiries. Really?! How can someone NOT be missing this charming fellow?!
