On my way to town Friday, I noticed a loose dog running down my street. That's not uncommon, as I live way out in the country, and most people allow their dogs to roam, but this guy wasn't farmiliar to me. Friday he was up the road; today he's wandering my front 40. All I can tell is that it's a chocolate lab or mix, on the move, panting and somewhat nervous. At first I was irritated, but after I realized he's probably been dumped, I'm worried. It's hot out there already. Poor thing is probably so thirsty, hungry, tired, and scared. I went in and brought out a big bowl of water, but he took off. Not even sure what I'll do him if I can catch him, but wandering around out in this heat is going to kill him. So even though someone else weaseled out on their responsibility, now I'M the one worried about him. This is probably the 7th dog someone has dumped, (that I know of) just on my street, in the last 5 years. People suck!
