Somebody's Hero

As we were on our O'dark thirty walk this morning a friendly Australian Cattle Dog decided to follow us the next street over.  Dad noticed didn't see any lights on, a hooman looking for a pup or a collar on the pup.  The pup kept following us, which made us worry.  As we made the final turn towards home, the pup was still following us.  So Dad has us go through the gate into the yard and shut the gate after the pup followed us in.  Dad gave the pup some water and a treat.  The he got into the collie mobile and drove around our walking area hoping to see a hooman looking for their pup.  He met the newspaper man, but he didn't remember a Australian Cattle Dog on the route.

Dad kept the windows down listen for a voice calling a pup and eyes open.  He saw a person walking but they didn't know the pup.  Dad climbed into bed thinking he would go see the vet to scan for a microchip in the morning.  Then he heard the pup bark.  He wondered if the person passed by calling or had just got home.  As he drove down the street the pup followed us from, he saw a person get off a motorcycle.  He opened the window and asked the lady if she knew anyone that had a Australian Cattle Dog on the street.  She gave a startled look and told Dad it was her pup.  Dad said he was the next street over and would wait outside his house for her, while she got her leash..  

Dad got back home, let us outside in the back yard, and we ran around with the pup.  The lady down the street, Dad waved, she saw her pup and came into the back yard.  She was so thankful, and we barked happily to see another hooman.  The pup was exited to see her.  She petted all the pups, asked what our names were, said what pretty pups we were.  We were in heaven.  She told Dad she was visiting a friend and the pup must have escaped from the fenced in yard.  Dad nodded and said those things happen, thinking about Sherman's 2016 adventure.  We were sad to see her go, but the big smile on Dad's face warmed our hearts.  He said he appreciated our help in getting the pup to follow us into the yard.  We went back inside our home  and Dad tried to get to sleep, but couldn't.  

So yes, we were somebodies hero today.  Dad is yawning as he tries to watch the football game.  We think sleep is getting the upper hand though.

Dog Speed,

Sherman and Gemini
