Since we moved to the farm we have had 2 dogs show up. Both Labs. The first one we came across one night on our road in a blizzard. Thinking it was our black Lab Charlotte we got the dog into our truck only to discover half way up our driveway that it wasn’t our dog! He stayed with us for two days until his mom came and picked him up.
This time Ollie the chocolate Lab walked up our driveway and we were all instantly in love with her. We love chocolate! She was a keeper if not claimed. Of course we did our thing and posted signs at the local general store and called the radio stations and humane society. Two days later Ollie’s mom came and got her, very appreciative that we’d taken care of her baby.
Living in the country, a lot of folks let their dogs roam. Both times we found dogs, we were unsure if we should keep them. The culture is different in the country and some people can be bothered if you keep their dog and would prefer that you would let them wonder home. But we don’t let dogs wonder so if your dog should happen to cross our path, they will be taken in and cared for until we find you.
Here are some photos of the very wonderful Ollie the chocolate Lab who made us smile for two wonderful days.
