:: She Shall Remain Nameless::


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?! 
Now look…

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!

We had a Husky/Shepard mix that came from the Humane Society. He was a wonderful dog, and SO smart. He lived to be 15 1/2 and the day we had to let go, was a very sad one.

If no one claims her, you will probably be naming her!

She sure is pretty! She looks like she has been cared for and I suspect you are right... that tummy looks a little plump. I sure hope she finds a good home, whether that be with you or someone else.

Rhonda said...

she looks like a sweetie, if you don't want to keep her, I am pretty sure you could find someone who does want her. She is one of those desirable breeds that people like.

6 little grands at one time, oh bless you! I've had 4 of mine at once but the littlest 2 are 8 and 16 month cousins and I have told all their parents that I can't keep those 2 babies at the same time unless it was an extreme emergency.
you are right that parenting was much easier when we were younger :)

Uh, I think it is too late! She looks so comfy and at home....oh, just name her already!! How about Ruby?

Melanie said...

From the look of the pics, you might as well name her! She looks so sweet.

LOL- I had four kids (the last 3 in 4 years) so I get it. I grew up on a farm and we always got strays dropped off, too. I cant wait to hear what you name "the nameless one"!;>) xo Diana

Nice job to take care of pets. She is showing good pose for the camera. She likes your house so she made her comfortable. You can name her instead of calling her dog. She looks so beautiful.

Kristina said...

That is something that typically happens to us, ha ha! She's beautiful.

Diane said...

That is a lot of littles at once! And you are right about age! Ugh! Many years ago when my mother was in her late 40s or early 50s, she said she saw some mom getting a stroller out of her car, etc., etc., in a parking lot and thought, "I know why God gives babies to younger women!"

Good luck with the dog. Don't think I could handle drop-offs! Would break my heart every time!

Claudia said...

Oh, she is beautiful.
I think you may have found another dog to love.
Just saying!.

That happened to me once...I refused to let the hubby or the kids name the beautiful golden retriever who came to us in a blizzard for weeks till we exhausted all avenues of finding his owner. One day when I finished a bedtime snack I announced to the kids that the Julius's were done he popped right up and came to sit right in front of me...and my beloved best friend a woman could ever have was named, Julius. Hopefully she is just lost, she's a wandering breed and they often just take off so hopefully there is a family looking for her.

Gail Wilson said...

Well, I have this saying... everything happens for a reason....is it a coincidence that SHE just happened by? I think not. Buster needs someone, y'all need someone, apparently TH is okay with her or she wouldn't be so comfy on your floor. :)

SIX? oh my, I know you must know how blessed you are! I don't even have one yet, and when I do they will be 3 hours away in another state. You my dear are one lucky Oma!

Oh, that is one pretty dog! I would say you must have had your hands sooooooooo full with those young and many grandkiddies! WOW. I get tired from watching my 3.

hi Pat ... I think you should keep her. She is beautiful and you may just find yourself with a new litter of puppies. Keep us posted.
