…but we ended up with another dog.
She wandered into our yard two weeks ago. Sweet, well-behaved, doesn’t chase the chickens and can fetch a ball.
The kids adopted her. She’s keeping the deer out of the food forest at night, which means she can stay.
We named her Betsy. My guess is that she was dropped by the highway and found our place because she knew children were there. She showed up on a Sunday morning, early, and met the children. Then when they left for church, she waited patiently on the steps until they came back.
I prefer plants to animals, but this little girl is all right. She looked pretty thin when she showed up but she’s getting good food and clean water now and looks healthier every day. She’ll never win a beauty contest, but as they say, she “has a great personality!”
Maybe we can train her to help us dig garden beds.
