Blondie is still here, after a couple of disappearances today.
I've considered calling her "Winn-Dixie" because she looks like a smaller version of the movie dog, shown here.
So far, though, she is still "Blondie", in honor of my friend Joanna.
We're going to wait for two weeks to see if somebody claims her, or wants to adopt her.
She won't be in the house. I can barely tolerate Sadie inside. Enough is enough.
If she's still hanging around after two weeks, we'll consider having her spayed and calling her ours.
It's a risk, spending all that money on a dog and perhaps seeing her run down on the highway. Been there, done that. I still miss Mandy. On the other hand, Brandy, our Chow, lived to a ripe old age running free here. So have many of Marvin's dogs. (Our neighbor.)
It's the only solution that Cliff and I can accept.
If Blondie should come in heat during the "trial period", we have a pen she'll have to stay in. I don't want puppies.
I thought you'd all like to know.
