So you remember Scrappy, the adorable stray dog we befriended? Well, last night he found us at the beach as we were leaving for dinner. We were walking back to our car and we saw this dog that we thought looked like Scrappy. We couldn’t tell and we hadn’t seen him in a few weeks despite looking for him. But then he stretched out his legs really big and let out a huge puppy sigh/yawn and we knew it was him.
Since last time we saw him we decided that if we found him again we would go buy him something, Tyler graciously let me go run to IGA to buy the dog some food and bones. But little ol’ Scrap likes me better and wouldn’t stay with Tyler long enough to let me leave, he would just bound after me. So I stayed with him in the grass and Tyler went to the store. All-in-all we gave him a nice tasty can of dog food and bought him a box of bones and a raw hide bone. He was the happiest little dog in the world. I gave him the bone to chew on for a while but I took it with me when we left so he would have it again…and I was really concerned he would eat too much and get sick.
We ended up spending a couple hours sitting in the grass playing with scrappy. He was so hungry he scarfed down his food and kept trying to get in the car to search for more bones, but he finally gave up and settled for belly rubs.
We had to leave him behind again which was the saddest thing. He followed us in our car down the road for a bit, but he eventually gave up and went back to pick up the bones we left him in the grass. We so wish we could keep him. I am still thinking that if I keep seeing him I might just stick him in my car and take him to the vet and see how much it costs to get him checked out. Living with us sure has to be better than being all alone. He is just so friendly, should be an easy dog.
I even saw him again this morning at the beach. We were on our way out but I had my trusty box of bones so I gave him some more. If we run into him again when we have more time maybe we will get him another can of food. We are basically adopting him, but we just can’t take him home. 🙁
Anyways, here are some more pictures of him we took. Enjoy!
