Stolen puppy

November 17th, 2006 at 07:58 am

I mentioned in my "list", that my grandma had me steal a puppy when I was 3. My grandma was a big dog lover, so am I.
The neighbors dog had a litter of puppies that they were giving away. The children were riding the littlest puppy, the runt of the litter, all around, in a wagon.
My grandma thought it was too cold outside for the puppy and that the kids were too rough with it.
She told me to go into their garage and take that puppy and put it in my coat pocket (It was really little)
I did just that and I went and sat in the car til my mother came out to drive us back home.(We lived on the other side of Norfolk, va.)
I got that puppy all the way home and into the house without my mother knowing. By the time my mother found out, my daddy came home. He fell in love with the puppy!
My mother called the neighbors to explain the theft by her 3 year old! They said I could keep the puppy and I did. My very first dog. I named her Melody Rebecca Christine Jingles Hudson Lady Bug Crosby. She became "Lady" I had her til she died when I was a teen.

    I have always wanted a beagle and to name it Peter Beagle (it sounds so cute). I also renamed my neighbor's dog Lady Woof Cecilia. The Ex said I was weird (his choice of dog names were Dog and, well, Dog..)

    That is such a cute story! And the full name is just priceless!

    We had a beagle mutt growing up. He was the only dog I've ever seen that looked like a beagle but had medium length hair! He was real shy too though. Not sure why, but that's the way he was. We named him "Boner". Big Grin

    I really enjoy your posts. I, too, try to always talk to my waitresses about saving. I am trying to save more every week.
