POST UPDATED - My previous post got too long and I didn't want to send anyone into a coma, so here is an update.
When I came home from one kid pick up I discovered that another kid had found the darn dog. Not knowing about our previous running relationship he assumed that the dog was just attracted to him as all dogs love him. He picked up the dog and went door to door trying to find an owner. He instead found a guy who had found the dog and was keeping it until he could figure out what to do with it.
I asked him, "What would possess you to go door to door in the rain to find the owner of that dog?" He said, "I was being nice. You know, like it says in The Bible."
Of course. He can't walk by his own brother without some smart alec comment being made, but to strange dogs in the rain.....he is nice.
Moments later the dog was back at our house.
Moments later we were in the car to return the dog again.
I told Tanner he stunk of wet dog and it was gross. He said, "Yes. Just like in The Bible."
(Then he proceeded to tell me that there is only one reference in the whole Bible to a person sneezing.)
NEXT (And hopefully last) UPDATE
Ty and I were driving home from a two and a half hour pig meeting. We saw the dog headed out of the neighborhood as we were headed in. I shouted at Ty, "Oh no. He will recognize us.!" I guess he did because Ty pointed out that he dog was following uour van. I begged Ty to stay in the car when we parked in the driveway so the dog would run off. Ty did not cooperate. He got out of the car and called the dog, "Little Buddy." Hello? Don't talk to the dog. Don't even say D-O-G.
The dog very nicely escorted us to the porch and we went inside. The dog then proceeded to bark and howl at the top of his lungs.
Look dog. I ignore five kids on a daily basis. I can ignore you too.
I didn't put up FOUND signs because it is pouring rain. And I was too busy today.
No dogs were harmed in the making of this post.
