the puppy.

last week cash and i came upon a lost puppy on the side of the road.
being the sucker for animals that i am, i picked him up, hoping that he was the puppy that i had seen 'lost dog' posters for down the road.
he wasn't.
and that's about the time that i learned an important lesson: the pregnant one cannot, under any circumstances, take a lost puppy to dog control. because she will A.) consider turning the car around about a million times in the 10 minute drive. B.) will sob uncontrollably the whole drive home because she feels like a dog abandoner. and C.) spend the rest of the day on the verge of tears over a puppy that 5 hours before she didn't even know existed.
it was a rough day.
and it really was the sweetest little dog.
so patient with cash. so loving.
nate even admitted later that he was trying to get me to find a home for him ourselves knowing that if i had to keep him overnight, i'd probably just want to end up keeping him forever (which is totally true.)
in short - no more rescuing stray dogs for me.
