Our Nemo is a 6-month-old black cocker spaniel. He was adopted in June. He's cute; he's friendly' he's just plain adorable.
So if you live in or near Florissant, keep your eyes open for Nemo. He's wearing tags and is microchipped. And as I said before, he's very friendly. If you find him or think you've seen him, call 636-671-7223 or 314-359-3760.
I'm hoping for good news soon.
Today I actually lost Benny the Affenpinsher for awhile. He's one of my long-term fosters because he seems unwilling or unable to connect with anyone but me. This morning, just before I learned about Nemo, Benny darted out the front door and took off for a little adventure. That adventure involved some time bushwacking through the woods. I know this because when I found him, he was covered with burrs.
And how did I find him? First there's the yelling from the driveway, hoping he'll hear and turn back. Then there's the driving around the neighborhood calling for him. Finally I ventured a little farther from home. I drove all the way up what we call around here "the road to nowhere." I didn't think he would have gone all the way up that road, but I rolled down the windows and called his name as I slowly crept up the road. I'd just reached the end of the road (the cul-de-sac aka nowhere) and was heading downhill when I saw him trotting up the hill towards me. I think he might have been trying to catch me.
Poor Benny. He looked so pathetic with all those prickly things on him and his tongue hanging out. He happily climbed into the car and gave me a kiss. He's been very quiet the rest of the day.
Benny will sleep well tonight on my bed.
Maybe by toorrow night Nemo will be back in his own bed.
Wouldn't that be nice.
