We all know Mr. Hess is a little bit of a ARKANSAS RAZORBACKS fan…he only went to the school, played in the marching band (YUP – sure did play the trumpet), and was THE Arkansas Razorback Mascot for 3 years! He is loud and proud of his HOGS and never misses a game.
Tonight when I got home from work, I saw the ARK vs. OHIO ST Sugar Bowl game on. Of course, there Mr. Hess was watching the game in Razorback gear head to toe. Tonight though, we had a new guest over to watch the game…
About 5 nights ago, Mr. Hess called me in the middle of the night from downstairs telling me that he was coming up, but he found a stray dog. Half asleep, I agreed to let him come into the house for two reasons: 1) I love dogs and 2) it was in the middle of a cold night streak in Orlando. I felt bad for the little guy, who Mr. Hess said was cold, wet, and wandering around looking lost. He had a blue collar on, but it was very tattered and there weren’t any tags on him. We spent the next few days after we found him putting up signs around the neighborhood, but haven’t gotten a response from anyone. We have been looking for MISSING DOG signs, but haven’t seen a thing. So for now, we have a pup. We bought him some puppy food, made him a bed, took him on lots of walks, and pretty much took him in as our own.
We haven’t named “Pup” yet, because we didn’t want to get attached, but clearly that has already happened. We are excited to introduce the newest member of the Hess family (for now anyways) to you:
We would aboslutely LOVE to keep him if his owners aren’t anywhere to be found. I don’t know who would have the heart to do it, but just by the way he responds to strangers and kids, it leaves us to wonder what kind of home he came from and if he ran away on purpose, or if he was abandoned. He seems to like it at our place, even though we swore we would never have a dog in an apartment. If we had a house, the desicion to keep him would have already been made. So, we’ll see what happens in the next week. Pup is one of the sweetest dogs I have ever come into contact with and something tells me we were meant to find him…I’m just saying. 😉
