Dog Days



Sunday morning after a ruckus by the beagle sisters we had a visitor. And Wanda took him in. Called a foxhound, deerhound or coonhound by various people who have seen him, Wanda just called him Leam and I called him Lem.

I don't know about any other foxhounds but Lem likes to:
Sleep
Eat
Herd
Poop in the driveway

He doesn't like to:
Bark
Run in the woods
He's a good, affectionate dog who seems to have been taken well care of. Probably got lost and couldn't find his way home. At first he was a little skittish not wanting to come on the deck or inside the house. Isabelle and Lem became friends pretty fast but Stella has let him know that although she's much smaller she was still running the show. It 's amazing how a nip on the muzzle will get the point across.

We're not going to keep him as the beagle sisters are enough dog for us. We called our friend "Granny" who knows everyone in three counties to find him a good home which she did. They are coming to get him today. It wasn't much of a problem as the many hunters in this area are always looking for a good hound.
It seems she had met him Saturday but before he could be picked up Lem had moved on to this side of the mountain.

So good that the dog has found a new home. People in Poland are not that much aware that dogs need homes. We have a lot of stray dogs here. :(

Ah, good that you found a home for him, he sounds just lovely. I wonder were he came from...

I would be devestated if my dog run away and couldn't be found. *sigh*

We have no stray dogs over here at all. All have owners or they will be put in a dog shelter to be adopted.
