The other day I opened my door and there was a dog staring at me. I got some dog treats from inside (had them cus my former neighbor had a dog) but he wasn't interested. Followed the little guy for an hour but he wouldn't let me near. Lost him under a fence.
Today, he came and paid me a visit at the screen door with a new friend he'd picked up. His friend turned out to be my other neighbor's dog, who had gotten loose. My neighbor was very upset this street dog was near her dog and trying to score some tail. After she spent some time yelling and banging stuff at him I convinced her to let him come close so I could capture him. Eventually I did and we went separate ways, her calling him a worthless, ugly street mutt.
So now I sorta have a dog, but his tooth is broken. He won't eat anything and it's too late to schedule a vet. I don't know what I'm going to do. I don't have money for a tooth extraction, which I read online is more expensive because it's a canine. I guess I'll have to give him up to a dog rescue or the pound. I had some flea/tick shampoo so he got a bath and his fur is black and white instead of black and brown =P. For tonight, at least, he has a quiet, warm room and access to plenty of food, water and pets.
I have temporarily named him Tas (Tasslehoff Burrfoot) from the Dragonlance Chronicles. Because he's small, persistent and some people get really mad when they see him around(a misunderstanding, he's sure).
