Just a quick post to let you know….
Turns out the two dogs lurking around our little neighborhood were not abandoned, but lost runaways. When the local mairie (mayor's office) opened Monday afternoon (this is the country, offices aren't open all day, every day) my neighbor called about the dogs.
The dogs had been reported missing last week.
Minutes later farmer and miscreants were happily (we imagine) reunited.
Why the two dogs couldn't find their way home will remain a mystery.
Perhaps they had hoped for a better life somewhere else, but after a week of going hungry were happy to go home.
Perhaps they were just stupid.
Perhaps if the farmer had put their names and his phone number on their collars this all could have been avoided.
I do love a happy ending.
