Today I went home for lunch. A quick turkey sandwich with my husband and then we were headed out the front door… until… out of the corner of my eye I saw something duck around the front of Chance's truck.
Could it be? Or was I seeing things?
I turned to Chance "I think there was just a dog in a hooded sweatshirt standing by your truck?"
He must have thought I was losing my mind.
When I approached her she ran from me. She was very skittish.
After a few giggles and some coaxing, she came closer. I told her she looked great in turquoise and we were instant friends.
Have you ever in your life seen such cuteness?
I could not stop laughing. She had an invisible fence collar on and a rabies tag… but that was all.
There I stood in the road with this dog in the hooded sweatshirt (conveniently it was short-sleeved). I stopped the mailman… he speculated on who he thought she belonged to, but I disagreed.
I know the dogs in our 'hood.
Chance was putting Penelope in the car when all $%&& broke loose… she wanted a piece of that hooded-sweatshirt dog (Penelope thinks she's a pit bull). I thought the hooded-sweatshirt dog would eat her alive… but no… she tucked her tail and ran like lightning from Penelope.
We haven't seen her (hooded-sweatshirt dog) since. I guess if she's outside in the cold tonight, at least she has on a sweatshirt NOT to mention a HOOD!?
