This is what surprised me in the barn yesterday morning, when I went out to feed! She obviously came in out of the rain and made herself at home in the sawdust pile. And she is huge! She was wary and fearful if I so much as moved my hand. She was very hungry. All of her ribs were showing and her hip bones were visable. This morning after several meals she looks so much better and she loves being touched. She is quite young, her teeth are very white, and all the edges of her front teeth are sharp yet. She leaves a track in the mud that is nearly 4 inches wide!!
What is she? After looking up it up on the internet, I think she is a blood hound or a coonhound, but she doesn't really look like the coonhound too much.
I have place a 'found' ad in the paper, to come out tomorrow. Must be identified to claim. We'll see what developes. Maybe she got lost and will be reclaimed. She wants to come in the house so badly. She makes her way around the house to the windows and the sliding doors whining and making pitiful noises.
Speaking of developments, yesterday I went for an interview for a 'nanny' position in Spencer. Taking care of 7 month old twin boys. Since I have done this before, I might have an edge over the 16 and 17 year olds that have applied too. She will let me know by Wednesday. I haven't heard a word from the horse farm.
It rained 'buckets' yesterday! We had 2 3/4 inches in the rain gauge. Washed gully's in the gravel of the driveway.
