About a week ago I noticed a small animals dart into the bushes about 1/4 mile from our house, it was so far away that I could not see exactly what it was. This morning I noticed a small Black Yorkie mix running across the road, I was concerned as we live on a very fast paced road, she eventually ran across the road from our house, I stayed out on the road to make sure she did not get run over. The DW came out and took over while I put the three watch dogs up. The DW opened the gate a bit and put some food down just inside the gate, the pup came right over and, since she was starving she just started eating right away. She turned out to be really friendly, but starved, her hair was a mess, eyes were matted and as the DW found out when she gave he a bath she had hundreds of fleas. She is a lovely little girl and happy as can be, we fed her several small meals today. It seems someone had just dumped her out to fend for herself and that is a shame, and if caught they should suffer the penalty of the law. Anyway it looks like we have another camping partner in the house.
