    Last night my husband and I went to a party in a town about 20 miles away from our farm that is in the same county. Here's our delema, while on our way to the party we stopped for gas, a bunch of boys came in from town on foot with a small blond lab in toe, they walked in to the store and swiftly nugde her out the store door way with a foot, she then wonderd around from car to car and almost up to the high way untill I whistled at her to come over, she ran over like it was the only excitment in her little life, picked her up and felt her little belly , she was full of worms ( extended belly, you could feel her ribs), and scabby from where she had been bitten by flea's, I made my husband go in and ask who's pup she was and the all just sheeplishly look at him and said it was a nieghbours pup that just followed them all the time and then they all burst our laughing.....dumm thing to do I know, as many of you know my husband works for the sheriffs dept (so we couldn't snatch the pup right off because he was seen asking about it) and so does his friend who lives in that town, who is know on the look out for this pup, my question is should I just snatch this poor thing up if I see it again, bring it home and have her vetted or just leave her the way she is?......sorry for such a long topic....grrrr

    Tough call Ks. I say if you want her snatch her. Keep an eye out for lost dogs signs, ads in the paper etc. If no one looks for her I'd say she's yours Our farm attracts stray dogs and cats like fleas. We finally had to stop keeping them. I run a lost dog ad, check vet offices and post signs. If no one claims them I have to take them to the Humane Society.

    Thats sooo sad! I would have gotten an address from the kids to go and see if they would give you the pup. Stealing is wrong even if it's an abused animal. There are so many out there, it's hard to save them all.
