Tomas and I alternate taking Agatha and Willy out in the morning. Basically it's whoever wakes up first, and that's usually Tomas on weekdays and me on weekends. So anyway, Tomas went to take Agatha and Willy out yesterday morning while I stayed in bed. A few minutes later (maybe it was more, I was sleeping after all), they were back...Willy jumped onto the bed to wake me up, but I wasn't going to budge. Then Tomas said, "Look what I found...."
I opened my eyes and there was a puppy at the foot of the bed. Yep, that got me up. Apparently, Tomas came across it tied to a pole in the alleyway in front of our apartment building. Homeless dogs in Argentina are a common sight, but it's not that common that you see a puppy (I can only remember seeing two in the 3+ years that I've been here).
So, I'm sharing this on my blog in hopes to reach more people and find a home for this little sweetie! If you are in Argentina and are reading this, please share this post! We have given her the name Cindy because A.) It's so darn cute, and B.) I've been wanting (for a while now) to name a pet "Cindy".
As much as we would love to keep her, we already have two adopted dogs and our situation is a bit complicated. That being said, we plan to foster her until we find her a home.
I took her to the vet yesterday, got her some parasite and flea medicine, and next week I will be taking her for her shots. She's very sweet, gives lots of kisses, follows you wherever you go and LOVES to play.
According to the vet, she's somewhere between 8 and 12 months old (not as young as we originally thought!), which means that she will grow a bit more but I don't think she's going to be a large dog (like I originally thought...I've been wrong on two accounts now haha).
Let's find this pretty little gal a loving, forever home!
