A Valentine's Day Surprise

Today should have been my first day of training yet due to some circumstances, I had to stay at home. My husband had a fever last night which I had to monitor since the pobrecito was so hot that the cold towel I rubbed on him was warm after application. He's all better now.

Anyway, I wanted to impart a little Valentine's Day surprise I got at our front door compliments of my friendly neighbor. This wasn't intended for me but seeing a lost puppy first thing in the morning was enough of a reason for me to get out of bed. I know that I should have called as soon as I saw him but my husband told me that he goes astray often and lives down the street. Being that he claimed that, I ran outside to pet him.

Behold my new friend, Pierre. 

Anyone who knows me is fully aware of how I'm far from a pet person but I fell in love with this heart breaker. How could I have not? I sat with him on the porch for about 30 minutes and gave him water and just when I thought I could play with him, he walks away to visit another house. I felt bad and hoped that he would return. 

Pierre did come back and my husband's female doggies went wild knowing that there was a male doggy in their midst. I think he favored Spice over Shugg. He barked at me and cried when my husband took away Spice. I felt like I had to call his owner before he wandered around elsewhere. I finally called the owner and he arrived shortly after. I found out that Pierre has a sister and a brother and they didn't notice that one of this dogs went astray. I felt sad seeing him leave but it showed how trained he was because as soon as his owner came, he was trailing behind the owner like a happy camper.

It was nice meeting you, Pierre! 

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

  13. how sweet! i'm sure he appreciated the drink! i've had a couple stray dogs come to my house before, too!

  14. @evey I hope you're doing good over there! I've been on hiatus! :))

    @Dinorah He's such a cuddly dog and he wasn't too affectionate unlike female dogs who love the attention. I like that he's a bit distant! lol.

    @Caro He was so cute and I couldn't resist but take a photo of him! lol. AWW! Thanks! I missed doing those silly doodles of mine. hihi.

    @Stacey He does look cute and his nose had pink spots on it! I don't really want to own a pet, I never have but I don't mind playing with them for a bit. You should definitely get one! :)

    @Kaitlyn He did and then walked away! lol. They're cuddly! I'm glad he was cute and not one of the creepy looking ones. lol.

  15. haha, that's a cute story! it's good to hear (or read?) that your husband is all better now. i hope you guys had a happy valentine's day! :)

    <3, Mimi

  16. sooo cute! I love dogs, especially big ones. I had 2 Labradors and 1 Rottweiler a couple of years ago. Too bad, I had to give them away when I became pregnant in 2007. huhuhu

    Belated Happy Valentine's day!

  17. Aww, hello Pierre! I doubt that in Indonesia there would be a stray dog THAT cute, somebody must have already picked him up and sold him to the pet shop *sigh*
    Anyway, I'm having a giveaway on my blog, you should totally enter! :D
