I was going to write my post about my thrifting finds from last weekend and get it up today; but I’m still taking pictures and trying to get most of it stocked and in the shop.
On Wednesday, we had 2 more grandkids than are normally here. For a total of 6 LITTLES!
I had my kids all one year apart. Four children in four years. There were times I thought they were a handful. But man let me tell you—yesterday, there were a few moments I felt a little outnumbered. I’m not as young as I used to be. I’ve got 23 years on me from when my kids were that small. I had the equivalent of a large family yesterday. A 5 yr.old, 4 yr.old, 2- 3 yr olds (equal TWINS), a 21 month and a 2 month old! I don’t have many days like that… It’s a different story when their parents are here. But by ourselves… whew!
After my son showed up to pick up his children…
THIS LITTLE GAL (not so little, really) showed up at the fence.
We don’t know where she came from. She appears to be an Alaskan Husky?
Buster likes her. She is much larger than him. Very Playful too. She doesn’t appear to be very old.
I tried not to pet her…and told The Honey to “run her off… “I know, I’m a bad. But she was running down the fence line across the street when we first saw her. Couldn’t she have kept on running?!
Yes…that is T.H. petting her--
and this morning when I got out of the shower;
He had let her inside and she made herself comfy on the rug by the door!
I looked at her belly. No tell-tell signs of ‘the surgery’ (spaying)
If no one is looking for this dog—then you know what that means. She is probably a drop off dog and she is probably ‘packing’ pups in that belly. :/
WE DO NOT NEED PUPS!!!
WE DO NOT NEED ANOTHER DOG!!!
The Littles want to name her.
“Oma, what is her name?”
“She needs a name.”
I said, “she shall remain nameless.” Though, I said it in a sad tone. Nothing stern.
I mean, if we give her name… then she’ll eventually, have an eternal resting place, under YON OAK TREE.
She’ll stay here until she is an old dog… until she leaves us.
She will be a forever dog.
I’m hoping to see that someone has posted a “LOST DOG” poster at the little country store down the road. Or maybe they have reported her missing to the Humane Society.
So there you go—that is why there is no Thrifty shopping post today.
*** edited to say:
Yesterday I contacted the HSCCL via Face book and sent them a picture ...and with the weather being bad (turning cold and sleet) I left her in all night, got up this morning to let her and Buster out to do their business and she's gone. Buster showed up around 9 this morning...so maybe she found her people. Or because of the FB picture and the shares...they came and found her in my yard? Not sure. But she is gone.
At first she didn't show any manners...but after being around us for 12 or so hours...she started to sit on command and lay down. She always went to the door to go out. She was actually well behaved. That is why I'm so hoping she found her people.
Thank you everyone for all the sweet comments regarding our Guest Dog-- who was Nameless...
I started calling her "Sophie" because she was whiny and it was like a SOPRANO ...so "Sophie" ...she seemed to like it.
Til next time, Be Blessed!
