Soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo..........................

I was bringing out Christmas Tree in from the garage through the front door to get ready for decorating this weekend. Bag #1 was uneventful but while I was bringing bag #2 I found this little guy at the threshold of my garage

(you know you're out the hood when the strays go from Pit Mutts to Frenchies lol)

So lil' homie here was dragging a filthy mismatched dollar store leash and collar.......normally these guys are thousands and pampered. I took him around the neighborhood for an hour to see if anybody was looking for him - nothing.

I noticed he had dried caked on mud all over his underside and it hasn't rained in over a week here - ground is totally dry now. That tells me he's been out here a while. Looked like it was going to rain so I didn't wanna leave him outside. I brought my 2 out to see how they got along.......

After a bath and a bowl of food with 2 bowls of water, Lil' homie is glued to me.

And he's made himself right at home....

I've checked Ring, Nextdoor, Facebook - nobody in my area is looking for a Frenchie or have reported one stolen. After my Daughter comes home from school, we'll take him to our vet to see if he's chipped.

He's cool, fits right in. If he's not chipped we might hold on to him....it's not everyday a dog adopts you.

if he got lost and a loving family misses him, i sure hope he gets reunited. if not, it looks like he found a good home...

Update: the original owners reached out to me first thing this morning.

Turns out the little guy was stolen back in July, the original owner is in older lady who just got a divorce and moved back home to New Jersey about a month ago.

I took him to my vet and got him a full examination, he has a clean bill of health and he's now caught up on all of his shots with a month supply of heartworm and flea preventative.

Little guy ships out on Monday for New Jersey.

I'm just doing what I hope like hell somebody would do for me if I somehow lost my dog, this is just me making a deposit into the Karma Bank lol

Had to put my dog down this morning. Sad day for me. She had a good 11 years with me at least.
Sorry to hear that, it's always tough. A few years ago I had to put one of my dogs down that was around the same age. I got him when he was 12 weeks old and he was my first pet that was mine alone. He seemed to be doing really well and then all of a sudden 2 weeks later I'm at the vet saying goodbye. We had to put our 17 year old cat down since then as well. All the good times we have with them is worth the heartache of them passing, but I wish they could hang around in good health much longer than they do 😔

Hope your week gets better 🙏

That's the fucking worst. I know that feeling. Had to put both of mine to sleep within nine months of each other because cancer.

Only bad thing about dogs is that they don't live long enough.

I'm sorry for your loss man, I'm going to be a wreck when I lose my Akita
I can't even fathom that day, because I'm also going to be in shambles. Our West Highland Terrier is 4 and she's the center of my world (I'd say don't tell my wife, but she already knows 😂 )

I'll forever be grateful that humanity has the companionship of dogs. They rule.
