found a dog today
thought id share this, it made my otherwise dull afternoon!
driving along my road today (relatively busy road) and saw a dog wandering along with a collar on. it went into the road and another car had to do an emergency stop. i thought 'hmm, thats not right' so me and my gf decided to go and check for a phone number etc.. as it was blatantly lost.
i pulled over, and ended up chasing this dog (on foot) down several roads - it didnt want to stop!!! in the end, it seemed interested in a particular house, so i managed to coax it into the front garden and shut the gate (as to prevent it running off again). i checked the collar, got the # and asked the house owner if i could use their phone.
i spoke to the owner, and it turns out the house i'd lured the dog into the front garden of (or so i thought) was the owner's old house!
made me smile, at any rate, the way this dog had utterly no regard for its own safety (running in front of several cars) and managed to find it's way to it's old house, where it hadn't lived, or been, for 6 months! just glad there was a number on the collar.
