you wouldn’t believe what happened the last evening:
Suddenly two dogs appeared in front of my back yard . They were thirsty and hungry and they couldn’t find the way back to their crib. I hope. And I don’t hope that someone abandoned or dumped them. They wore no collar, so we had no clue about the owner.
Mom brought a bowl with water and some food. But the two tramps were very shy and anxious. They showed their teeth and growled. Mom placed the bowl and the food on the floor and then she and my dad were waiting in a distance.
First we called the police. Sadly the police office was closed since 5 pm. That means that nothing has to happen after 5 pm here. Great, huh? A call at the headquarters of the police was unsuccessful too, they said they have no information about missing dogs. All vet offices around us were closed too, so we had no chance that anybody could check their chip to find the owner. And we couldn’t call a shelter, we have none around. The last closed in 2012. Something like animal control is also not available here, the common way is to call the police or the mayor… or to do nothing….Maaaaaaan, vive la france!
Then we called our mayor. He sent Gil, who works for our village. He came with his van and Gil and my dad tried to catch the dogs. Unfortunately they escaped. Dad and Gil jumped in the van to follow the dogs, but they lost their trace in a forrest near our village.
I hope they will find the way home and nothing will happen to them. The worst is, french car drivers are super dangerous and they have no sense for appropriate speed. And unfortunately we have a lot of little sheeps here and view days ago some sheeps were hurted. Some people are very quick when it comes to suspicions. It’s easy to blame it on the dogs….
We will call the vet’s in our area today, maybe they have some informations and maybe the dogs come back to my crib and this time the “dog catchers” will be smarter.
