    DefaultMy daughter is bringing home a stray(updated with pics!)

    She just called to let me know that she is bringing home a golden retriever that she found running on a busy street when she was driving home from rock climbing. This girl is a stray dog magnet. : This guy has his tags on, but he's from a city about 35 minutes away, so we have called the owners and left a message and will be waiting for them to pick up their boy.

    I think that I'm just going to put this poor guy in the garage - I can't handle any doggie drama today. Gosh - I hope that he's a good boy.

    Aw! It's SO sweet of her to do that. I can't believe he's from 35 minutes away! Man! Wonder if he ran all that way? Poor thing!

    I'm sure he'll be a good boy in the garage.

    Wow. He is a beautiful Golden. He's pretty stressed out though - won't drink any water, and obviously not interested in food. He'd love to meet my two, but the tension is pretty thick in the house. Between my two being WAY excited, and Cody (the name on his tag) being scared, I don't think that it would be a good idea.

    He has an oval tag on his collar that says National ID number and that he's been vaccinated for rabies. Does that oval tag sound familiar to anyone? He's not licensed in our city so I am hesitant to take him to the local shelter. I am going to call an all breed no kill shelter to see if they could take him in tonight. They're located inbetween our two cities, so it would be more convenient for his owners, who still haven't called. :-\

    Maybe his owners are out of town?

    Abby and Molly's rabies tags are oval and sort of a goldish color...you can see part of it in this picture (the color is sorta worn):


    ...it's hanging behind Molly's ID tag

    Oh wow I hope the owners claim him. If he is 35 miles from home I bet he is scared and wondering what is going on. Hopefully they will call and everything will be ok.

    Tal's rabies tag is also the yellow orange color but alot of the color is gone now...

    Well I was just going to post that we were taking him to the shelter near his home, but I was interrupted by the phone...and Cody's parents are on their way over! Whew! I didn't have any place for him to stay tomorrow and I was trying to get him closer to home, but getting him HOME is the best possible outcome!

    I'll try to get a picture before they arrive because he is the biggest golden that I have ever seen. His head is huge, his feet are huge. It's almost like he is mixed with a Great Pyrenees or something. He's a great dog and I'm so glad that he's going home to his family tonight!

    Oh, I'm so glad too! Bless you guys for getting him back home!

    So how did he get there? Did he just get loose? What happened?

    I'm so glad they're coming. I felt so bad for him when you were saying how stressed he seemed.

    Well...Cody is going to grandma & grandpa's tonight because they are dogsitting while Cody's family is on vacation. He's been gone since last night! They can't figure out how he got out, but looking at the size of him, over the fence is definitely a possibility. My daughter was on their street, but they were out of the house looking for him. Too bad that they hadn't put up any signs - she could have found them that way. Anyway, I love a happy ending.

    Everyone is happy that Cody is going home! (Sorry that his eye looks weird - it looked quite normal in real life)


    His paws are as big as my daughter's hands!
