DH and I have a 9 year old black lab, that is our baby. We love that dog to death, and she’s so spoiled.
We have some bad pet neighbors. They live out on the main road (near our street) and have like 4 dogs. Their two yellow labs, and another dog, lived chained in the back yard. They escape all the time and are frequent visitors at the pound. For the past few months, they keep escaping and ending up at our house.
The first time, we called the owner and left a message and didn’t hear from them until THE NEXT DAY when they finally came and got the dogs. Since then everytime they show up we call them to come get them.
DH and I said the last time, if they showed up again we were going to tell them if they didn’t want them anymore we’d consider taking them. Sure enough, this morning they show up. I give them baths and bring them inside. I called the owner, who has been out of town for days. I told her if they felt like they didn’t want them to let us know and we’d consider taking them – and made it a point to tell her that I thought it was terrible that they live chained up and they showed up dirty, with ticks, and cuts on their heads.
The woman didn’t even hesitate. Never missed a beat and immedately said she’d “take us up on our offer”. Gee…what a great pet owner. I honestly didn’t think she’d do it, so here we are with 2 more labs.
