A half hour walking through the neighborhood I could not find anyone who knew of her. She had no dog tags on. I took her back to her new home.
|Bandit's Temporary Sister Waiting for Something to Eat|
I left a message for the dog officer (as of this posting I'm still waiting for a call back), took the picture above and posted it on FaceBook. Bandit and Luna, as we later knew of her, got acclimated. Bandit was a bit jealous. She was very friendly and playful.
She spent the night.
The next morning we woke up, Bandit went out to pee and she bolted out the back door. I watched her run through the back woods and figured she was gone, back to her house, perhaps up the street to one I hadn't passed by. Five minutes later she was at the back porch, ready and waiting for breakfast. While she ate five of Bandit-sized portions, I checked Facebook to see if I had any callers. Lots of curiosities and compliments on her looks but no leads.
I left a message for the dog walker to include one more dog, put her in the basement and headed off to work.
In the middle of a meeting I got a call from a friend of mine from work. He was home on vacation and saw my posting but had also seen another posting at the Coven Facebook page. He put two and two together and immediately gave me a call.
A couple hours later Luna was reunited with her owner. He gave me a reward which I didn't feel was necessary (a future donation to the animal rescue league). She headed out in howls of excitement. Bandit and I said our goodbyes. Secretly I think Bandit was grateful to have the place back to himself.
