This Red, White and Food post is a little unusual...talking today about "food" that soothes the soul and for many of us, that food has four legs. While I would love to tell you all about the wonders of my four-legged "babies", my "grand-babies", too...and how they have brought me so much joy and comfort, there is a little lost one who needs the attention today.
On Saturday, this precious old gal was wandering along the main street where I live...not moving very fast and in this dangerous,100 degree plus heat, she looked very distressed. She has pretty good teeth still, loves cheese and not dry kibble, seems blind but is spatially aware and has a sore leg but manages to move around a bit. She is well-fed...er, plump, and has pretty toes. Our vet did not recognize her nor did the groomer nor the neighborhood dogsitter and she is not chipped. No ID in sight.
Oh, woe. Two thoughts have crossed my mind...she has wandered off for a reason, not expecting to be rescued and end up here in Dog-ville, or her caretakers haven't noticed she is missing or maybe they are hurt, have heat stroke. I am not even going to go there. Anyway, any help? Please give me a shout if you have any clues. We have already named her. Geez. xoxoxoxo
