The dog thief!

March 10th, 2012 at 06:30 pm

I think I got my love of dogs from my grandmother. She had a small white dog, named Trixie!
Ond day, I went over to visit my grandmother. She lived with my aunt and uncle. I was between the age of 3 and 4 years old.

My grandmother was quite upset cause the kids next door had a bunch of puppies and were carrying them all around the neighborhood. It was quite cold out and she was especially concerned about the littlest puppy; the runt of the litter.
She told me to go and get that puppy, put it in my coat pocket and take it home. I did just that. At the age of 3 1/2, I became a dog thief.

My mother did not discover the puppy until we got home and she called the neighbor. The neighbor was happy for me to keep the puppy and so was my father. (my mother was never a dog lover)
That was my first dog and we named her lady!

I would like to say that was my only case of dog kidnapping, but it was not.

We had a small business in a small neighborhood. The neighbors brought home a small puppy. They tied it outside all day in shoelaces. It had no food and water and it cried all day. It could only move a few inches on those shoe laces. I gave it water and fed it (they worked all day) but it still kept crying. On the third day, I cut the shoelaces and took the puppy home. I gave it a bath and a million fleas were on the poor thing. I am happy to say, I found it a very good home.

Don't be surprised if you see me one day on the national news, "Ima saver, dognapper"!

    I laughed out loud! Love thinking of you as a dog thief!

    I can't stand to see animals that aren't treated well. We have rescued many over the years. One, a border collie, was living in a little concrete yard about 12' by 12'. We really didn't need another dog, but couldn't bear to think of him in that situation. He ended up being the best dog ever. Loyal, protective, cuddly, tolerant of children and other animals.

    Good for you!

    I would be disappointed if you DIDN"T dog nap again should you see an animal suffering.
