I had a Russell Terrier for about an hour today! I was outside pruning a lilac bush so the mower guy could cut the grass there!! and this little white, old, little dog came walking up the road. (In the middle of the road). I called her and she shyly came to me. I saw she was old and breathing heavily. Sort of wheezing . . . right up my ally! She let me pick her up and I sat in the front yard by the road for 15-20 minutes hoping someone would come by looking for her. She looked so tired. Finally I took her inside the back way so Rocky couldn't see. She drank some water and ate some dog food like she was starving. Hmmmmm? Probably on meds. I shut her in the kitchen and I went out and made 4 big signs "FOUND. Little White Dog, Red Collar" and set them out by the road facing every which way! In about an hour after doggy was about to fall asleep, a white car drove in the drive and asked if the dog was an old female Russell Terrier! YES!!! I took her out to the car and her little tail that she had kept tucked between her legs the whole time, popped out : )) They were all so happy. She is on a lot of meds including heart meds and would die without them. She had gotten off her other collar and trotted away. They only live a couple houses down the road. I knew she couldn't have walked far! Happy endings : ))
The bad thing is, I didn't even think of taking a couple pictures of her!!!! I'm not a very good reporter!
