Last weekend my husband was sitting outside preparing for our bonfire that evening when he calls me to come outside.
As soon as I walked outside I see this beautiful eyed chocolate lab mixed puppy with a shirt on that said "Superdog."
After failed attempts at trying to call his owner, I texted and received a response stating that he wanders the neighborhood and always returns home but that she would send someone to get him.
We said our goodbyes to this sweet puppy and went about our day, that is until 30 minutes later when sweet pup pup returned back just as joyful as before. He hung out with us during the entire bonfire and when we went inside to clean up he was sound asleep on our couch sleeping peacefully.
That night we were nervous to let him roam free since it was so late, so we allowed him to have a sleepover with our pups- crazy i know. The next morning we sent him on his way and left for the day.
When we returned low and behold so did our little friend so we let our dogs out so that they could play.
Every day that weekend this puppy has showed up with a big ole smile on his face. Our dogs gleefully search for him when he is not here. Monday started a new week where I questioned whether he'd show up. I hadn't been home 15 minutes when my dogs start barking loudly outside. There their friend was waiting to be let in the gate to greet them. Pup pup made his way inside to drink some water and eat some food when I noticed he was sporting a shock collar.
This prompted me to text his owner again letting her know that for the last four days her dog has been over at our house to play with his new friends and that we didn't mind at all, but that I felt the need to let her know. She responded saying that she didn't mind if we didn't and that he is a sweet dog who loves to roam- which we could clearly tell at this point.
Thus this has started a beautiful little friendship for my sweet pups and our neighborhood friend puppy P. Now if only we could teach him to not chase our cats or pee on our floor and we'd be solid.
