I just caught a lab, one that I have found before, it required making very happy sounds and heading toward the car. I had a bird I was burnishing in my hand, with my most favorite of all burnishing stone, a beautiful red, smooth polished one and a half inch by a 16 of an inch rectangle of perfection. My favorite, my lucky. Because no good deed goes unpunished, I apparently put it in my back pocket, which has a big hole in it. So this is silly, but I really really really really really want it back. So if you have a find it vibe, St. Jude paweeeese with sugar on top, let me find it back. Lost Pepper's collar and fancy tag that Ivy gave her because I loaned it to TOTO who was loose, with three young boys who said Toto followed them. I wanted them to get home with her and return her to the owner. Every collar I had was too loose and Toto could slip her slender head right out of it. I asked the boy, would he please either return it next time he came by (he promised he would) or call me and I would pick it up. A month has passed so I guess that and the lead are not coming home back. I knew the risk when I sent them, but I would rather lose them, than to see Toto with a broken hip, or worse. The road they had to walk up is so dangerous I won't let my dogs on it, even on a lead. I should have just gotten an address and driven her home. I have given up there. BUt I really really want my lucky rock back. So fingers crossed, going out to look again. Oh..the Lab's name was Pepper. I slipped my Pepper's leash off of her because she will walk off leash and put it on their Pepper but she had backed out of it before I Could get it clipped. THat is why we had to make happy sounds and make a dash for my car. That rock is out there in a half block area. Hyia and I have combed it twice now. THe lab also named Pepper is safe and secure with her owners. They were out looking for her, and had just missed her. I was able to call them BECAUSE YAHOO SHE HAS A PHONE NUMBER!!!!! on her tag. So does my Pepper's which is why it is shameful they didn't at least call and say.you can come get it. I swear, it's true about the no good deed thing. I just don't want to see them hurt. Nothing is worth that.
