Okay so yesterday around 5:00 p.m. right around the time my hubby's father shows up for Christmas there, outside on our deck is a lost dog. The dog is super friendly, well behaved with NO COLLAR! She is very lovable and I can tell she is an inside dog just by her mannerisms. She can sit and lay down and will give you her paw when asked for it. Well we went out last night and drove up and down our road, mind you we live in the country with about 10 houses total on my mile and a half road. We see no signs of anyone "looking" for a missing dog. Well when we got back we decided to give the pup some water and a little bit of food, our cat's food, because we do not have any dogs and did not want to give the dog people food. My hubby also took a towel out there and put it in one of our deck chairs. Well the dog slept on our deck all night and was still there this morning when we left for work. She would not leave. We are already attached and worried about it. If it is still there this evening when we get home we were going to make up signs to put out that we "found" this dog. I know this dog belongs to someone, that much we can tell, but why were they not out looking for her last night? I also feel bad leaving her outside at night, if she is an inside dog. My hubby says I am worrying to much about that because dogs will survive outside in 30 degree weather and up into the 50's today, but I just feel bad. I am just not sure what to do if no one claims her. My cat will not like having another animal around but she is just too cute and lovable to give to the shelter and if no one claims her we all know what happens. I guess I just needed to get this off my chest. Any suggestions??
