A Tale of a Black Lab

Do you all remember Jet, (oops, I mean Roxie)? The black lab that showed up on our doorstep a few weeks back? Well let me tell you a story:

I was coming home from work last evening when I spied a sign that said "Found: Black Lab". I took down the number and decided to call it this morning. I spoke to a lovely woman by the name of Emily. I described Jet, (oops, I mean Roxie), to the woman down to a tee. This was definitely the dog she had found. Apparantly Emily found Jet, (oops, I mean Roxie), on the easement of our property, along the busy street just behind our back yard. I talked Emily into bringing Jet, (oops, I mean Roxie) over this afternoon. I will then keep Jet, (oops, I mean Roxie) until morning when I will take her back to her vet. I then plan on having a very deep conversation with the vet, concerning Jet's, (oops, I mean Roxie's) apparant lack of supervision/safety. I will emphasize that we are willing to provide Jet, (oops, I mean Roxie) a good home with a fenced back yard, kids to play with, someone to run with and a family to love her for always. We would be honored to care for this beautiful creature. Emily tells me she felt that if she did not pick up Jet, (oops, I mean Roxie), when she did, she was certain the dog would have been struck by a car. Also, Jet, (oops, I mean Roxie), still doesn't have the proper tags in place. Will people ever learn?

I would like to hope that this is a perfect world where the outcome would be one that would benefit all involved in this canine love story. We can always dream.

Update: Jet, (oops, I mean Roxie) is here! We are all very excited to see her again!

We have leash laws in our town, but they are regularly disregarded. It's not at all uncommon to see dogs running loose in the neighborhood. It's only a matter of time before a tragedy occurs. Luckily, Jet (oops, I mean Roxie) has some caring people looking out for her.

I am glad Jet is in your hands again! I just hope that he stays there, for good this time! :)
