I have seen this pretty girl about a mile or 2 from our house several times and not close to any farms. The first time I saw her I thought to myself if she's still there when I come back home I would pick her up but I forgot to look for her. Papa Bear mentioned seeing her a couple of times when he's left to run errands.
Today my Mom came running up the back steps yelling there was a big dog outside slobbering. Mom had went down to the chicken pen to throw scraps over the fence and when she started back to the house, the girl had caught sight of her and took off running towards her slinging slobber as she ran. Mom said all she could think of seeing a slobbering dog was the movie "Cujo" and she found out she could still run! Poor Mom...she is going to be so sore tomorrow.
She has a collar but no tags to ID her. I've posted her picture on Craigs List to try to find her owner. If she's not claimed I'm going to keep her.
I've always wanted a hound to lay around on the porch. Maybe her finding us was a sign that I was suppose to have her. We've been all over the barnyard and she didn't make a motion to chase anyone, not even the cats. Papa Bear said she may be a victim of Obamanomics. The Animal Shelters have even picked up some horses running loose on a nearby road that were never claimed.
