A very young thief!

April 21st, 2009 at 11:38 am

I was remembering my first dog this morning. I am a dog lover, as was my grandmother.
I was over at her house with my mother one day. I was a little over the age of 3. The neighbor's dog had had a litter of puppies and all but one (the runt)had found new homes. My grandmother was upset cause the neighbor's kids were dragging that puppy all over the neighborhood and it was cold outside.
My grandmother told me to go and "Take" that puppy and then take it home with me.

I can still remember finding the puppy in the garage and putting the little thing in my coat pocket. I got in the back seat of the car and would not get out til my mother drove us home.
My mother did not discover that I had that puppy til we got home then she called the neighbor to apologize. They said for me to keep the puppy and lucky for me, my father agreed.
I had that sweet dog until I was a teenager. But I was a very young thief!

    What a "bad" influence your grandmother was! That story is a riot and at three, you certainly didn't know anything more than you wanted that puppy. How cute! Smile

    Cute story! I did the same with a kitten when I was about 7 or 8. On a fishing trip with my dad, I "found" the bedraggled, starving cat on the dock, under a boat. It was not until we were almost home that I took him out of my jacket. Dad let me keep him and named him Trouble. He was one of the best cats I've ever had.

    From the description of the treatment that the boys were doing to the puppy, I'd say that little puppy was lucky you claimed him. You took good care of him.
