Edgar and Allie

Last night when we got home from dinner we had two little cuties perched in our front yard. We'd never seen them before and didn't think they were from our neighborhood. We waited to see if they would run back home but instead they ran up our front steps.

The dogs are obviously someone's pets. They seem well cared for, well mannered, and very sweet. Of course, the kids went crazy over them and immediately named them...Edgar and Allie. After checking in our neighborhood and in the one next to us with no luck, Edgar and Allie stayed the night...in the guest room, which seemed appropriate.

Sheryl made a sign and put it on the main street, she entered their info on a couple of websites locally and not a peep all day. Meanwhile, Edgar and Allie enjoyed their day being fawned over by three adoring children.

Our dog Bear has no idea what to think. She's not well with this scenario. She keeps giving me a look like, WHAT THE HECK, PEOPLE?

Tonight I drove down the opposite way on Old Hickory to a couple of houses set back in the woods thinking maybe one of them was their true home. It was like something right out of a horror movie...dark, rainy, terrifying. And I could have sworn I heard underscoring...with ominous tones. The only scary thing I found was a woman with a mullet. But no dog owner.

These dogs are so sweet! They have to belong to someone! We're not sure what to do at this point. We're going to give it another try tomorrow. Until then, Edgar is nestled on Maddie's bed sleeping with her and Allie is snuggled up next to Ella. Bless.





Don't they just look pitiful? We are not...I repeat, NOT keeping them. But we hate to let them go running out onto Old Hickory Blvd where they might get hit. Stay tuned for more of our dog soap opera.

"We are not...I repeat, NOT keeping them." -- Wow, famous last words that I've spoken several times! They rarely taste good when you have to eat them - kinda like -- "I'll never ....blah,blah,blah". As I recall, those are the same words I said before we ended up with 2 dogs and 2 cats!! Good luck ... but I've seen your soft heart for your kids at work before. Look forward to seeing y'all in Nashville in October -- blessings.

FYI, our dog has a microchip in her ear that can be scanned at the vet, shelter etc and all our info will pop up. Maybe your vet would be able to check and see if maybe they had the same thing done to them.

I am still waiting on part 2 of this story. Has Ella recovered yet? I am sure Bear is relieved! :)

I think you may have just added "foster parenting" to your ministries. :)

Just wanted to stop by and say "Thanks" for the great music in Lubbock last weekend. What a blessing!
