I'm back! I was finally able to convince Fudge to let me do a post. He's quite into his storytelling these days and is pleased that he can share his slightly confused stories with you. I told him I had some important things to write about so he's taking some time off. First I have a story with a happy ending to share.
Remember back in July when this thin, tired and dirty dog showed up? This was Sebastian the day he arrived. He was in dire need of some TLC.
We have learned that Sebastian is afraid of thunder and other loud noises and refuses to go outside in the rain. He does love the snow and would spend all day playing in it. He also likes to sunbathe till he's hot to the touch.
We believe that Sebastian was well cared for and his master worked with him. He has excellent manners, knows some basic commands, does not get in any trouble in the house and he can catch like a pro. I learned this by accident one day when I tossed a treat to him and he caught it midair. He loves to ride and settles right down in the car.
We don't know why he became homeless, but our best guess is that he may have belonged to someone who went into the military service and whoever was left with the care of his dog, didn't care enough to take good care of him. Another possibility is that his owner died and whoever inherited the dog didn't want him. Whatever happened, it was very sad for Sebastian. For months Sebastian has been looking for the person he lost. When he met someone on the street he would run up to him to see if it's his special person. He watched every car that went by to see if his person was in it and when we took him into the yard he stared up the street as if looking for someone. It was sad to watch.
Now the happy ending that I promised. A few weeks ago Sebastian seemed to make a decision. He has decided that this is is home and he has his very own special person again.
