Puppy Love

*Warning-Two posts in one day-This may cause extreme and uncontrollable excitement*

We had a visitor today...

She has been wandering around our neighborhood for the past week now... and she never seemed too interested. A few days ago she was in the yard and I tried to 'shue' her off and she just cowered. It was kinda sad. She seemed almost afraid.

Well, today, as Shawn was out front taking the lights off the Christmas tree (yes you read that right) she showed up again. She wouldn't come near, but laid there on the far side of the yard with her head down slowly wagging her tail. I saw that she had a collar on so I approached her to see if there was a tag. I guess she took that as an open invitation...we were safe and not going to hurt her. Once I pet the top of her head and carefully checked her collar she was all over me. Jumping up and down, all over me, rootin' her head on my leg. Then she wouldn't stop following me. She came up on our front stoop and made herself at home. She even sat at the front door and whined to get inside. I do hope she has a home and that they are looking for her. I can't stand to see animals not being taken care of, and we can't possible keep another dog.

It sure looks like she's a part of the family already.
