Falling temps…

I don’t know about you, but it is difficult for me to respond appropriately to events that may interrupt my activities. It’s a weakness I have to deal with. As an example, driving into town the other day to have lunch with a friend I was behind time because of the winter conditions. And then I saw it. My first thought was that I wished I hadn’t seen it. But I had. And even though I would be late for lunch, and even though my cell phone was dead and I couldn’t contact my friend, still…I had to stop.
The pup was under a bush, snow covered, but his eyes met mine as I drove by. My high school drivers-ed instructor would not have approved of my reaction. I hit the brakes, completed a perfect 360 before sliding into someones driveway.
I ran to the pup just as did two other folks coming from different directions.
The debate between the three of us did not take very long. “Bill, my 12-year-old Labrador died last week,” she said. “I’d like to take him.”
Sorry for taking so long to get to my point. This is a tough time of year for animals living on the streets. Cold winter brings freezing temperatures. So as you go about your winter activities, be on the lookout for strays, both animal and human, needing a helping hand.
