Must Love Dogs
Tonight I did my first good deed of 2009. I was driving home from work and saw a beagle in the road. I pulled over and got out of my car and walked toward him. At first I wasn't sure if he was friendly or not but he started to wag his tail as I got closer and I knew he was fine. I stopped traffic and scooped him up and put him in my car. He smelled very bad and was very thin. Adorable and quite lovable - a little old dog. I drove from house to house asking people if he was their dog. There's only about 5 houses on that street. I saw another beagle in the park next to where I found him and knew this other beagle was looking for him. I figured I'd see a person eventually but didn't. I was yelling "HELLO" as loud as I could hoping the dogs had an owner nearby. I finally got the other one to come over to me and I scooped her up and put her in my car also. I waited long enough for someone to show up but no one did so I called 911. The police officer that came out was afraid of dogs so I had to put them in the back of his squad car. hahahahahah - too funny. He said that he would drive around on the other side of the park and see if he could find the owners. I hope he wasn't just telling me that because he knew I was upset that they wouldn't get back home. I said what happens if you don't find the owners - he said he would take them to the station. I hope I did the right thing. I really hope he found the owners. I was sad to see them go but know that I saved them from being hit by a car during rush hour.
