A Yorkie Tail...er, Tale

This is not my photo, since it all happened too fast for me to snap a photo!
Found this on the interwebs...it said it was free...and it's a close approximation of the wee doggo that I hugged for a few moments.

While on my lunchtime neighborhood walk, I found a wandering doggo!

No tags, no collar.

The only human nearby was a man mowing his lawn across the street.

He kindly turned his machine off as I approached, and explained that he knew every dog on the street, but didn't recognize this one!

Determined to do the right thing, I picked up the wee one, and headed back toward the yard that I'd seen the dog come from.

After only taking a few steps, another dude came out from around a nearby house, said he was working on a car, and that his dog had wandered away!

My fastest rescue yet; not a whole ten minutes...

The man thanked me, and I waived at the mowing man, and resumed my walk.

Today, I am thankful for the many wonders that I encounter; it's astounding to be alive!

People have to be careful. That Yorkie wouldn't be able to manage the outside like the PO'M could.
