My dogs woke up at 7am, darted out the dog door and started barking their heads off. At first I thought they saw a coyote. They kept barking so I got up and looked out the window. First I saw a large white dog. Not surprising, I see a lot of stray dogs. Then I saw the burro. WHAT??? Where did he come from?
I have heard a burro before somewhere in the distance but I don't know which neighbor it is. After the dog and burro hung around for 2 hours I posted Found signs at the end of my street. I figured someone would call right away. Now it is 4pm and no one has called. I wish I had a corral to put the burro in. He won't let me get more than 15 feet from him and he won't go in my garage or in my dog fence so I can't keep him here. I put the big dog in with my other dogs because I couldn't stand the barking and because it was raining.
The dog's tags have a phone number but it goes to a vet who is closed on Sunday. The horse rescue place recommended asking at the feed store but it is closed on Sunday also. I think I will take a few hours off of work tomorrow, call the vet and hope they have a current number and also hope that the dog and burro belong together...assuming the burro is still here in the morning.
I have always wanted a horse. Some how the message got mixed up and I got a burro instead. Haha.
Anyway, all of the cleaning that I did yesterday was wiped out today with the rain and the new very wet and muddy dog. My floors look terrible and the combination of wet dog paws and claws are tearing them up. I need durable flooring very soon!
