I got home tonight to find SU and some friends on the back deck, with the 3 dogs - WHAT! THREE dogs? Another stray showed up - this one is a pretty little girl, covered in ticks and quite thin. So I had to feed her (I can't have a starving dog on my property.) Then my friend and I took turn picking ticks off her - she was just so good about it, laying in our laps, barely making a sound. Then, because she was dirty, she really had to have a bath - since she didn't have a collar, and I couldn't find our puppy ones, I just sat on the ground and held her while we bathed her -whats some sopping wet clothes anyways - you just change them when you're done. She started whimpering some and shaking because she was cold, so we wrapped her up in a thick towl, and I got a dog bed from the basement for her to lay on (she was getting sleepy) Here's some pics of her. I really don't know what I'm going to do with her. We're leaving on vacation in a few days, and I would feel so bad taking her to the pound. She's young, but already had some pups. Very friendly and jumps up and cuddles in your lap like nobody's business. I can certainly see the appeal of "little dogs"
