Dogs on the run?
We´ve had a couple of dogs that has run around here lately and we think these are the ones that chases cows. Two big black dogs, one of them have some whit on its chest. Naturally everyone thinks it is my dogs that is on the loose. On Friday evening however I saw a big border collie mix run around on the outside of my garden and my neighbors had something outside their door making noise. But they couldn´t see anything when they opened their front door.
At first they thought it was the big badger but today they know different 🙂 Two big dogs stopped by and said hi to their little Hampus 🙂 The big totally black one ran away as soon as he saw people but the other one stayed. They told me he has been there all day and he and Hampus seems to get along very well. Since they believe this is one of the dogs that might be a cow chaser they called the police and asked if someone had reported their dogs missing but no one has.
He is very friendly but a bit shy. But he did come to say hi after a while and he did let me check his ears for tattoos. We have to mark our dogs in some way, either a tattoo or a chip beneath the skin. No tattoos though in his ears. The fun thing is that now the dog refuses to leave their garden 🙂 🙂 🙂
There´s only three reasons for dogs not to stay at home and the first one is that the owner doesn´t care much about them and lets them run around all day as they please. If so they shouldn´t be allowed to have dogs at all. The second reason is that they have run away, but then any owner would call the police just in case someone has found them. The third reason is that they simply has thrown them out of a car and left, unfortunately not uncommon now days. I´m not sure what´s the case is here.
I would have brought him home with me myself if Hector hadn´t shown that he didn´t like this dog especially much. So I told my neighbors to call the police again and leash the dog while waiting or call an animal shelter so they could take care of him. But we have the other dog to think of as well. He ran away and seems to be so much more shy than this one.
Its time for a cup of tea and something to eat. I baked bread yesterday and everything went well but when I tasted it I realized that I had forgotten to put salt in it 🙂 It doesn´t matter how great a bread might be, without salt its just boring 🙂 🙂 🙂 Have a great day!
