My unfortunate habit of helping every other stray/abandoned dog I come across may have finally backfired. This ol’ girl, probably an American Staffordshire Terrier, is obviously beautiful. But she’s also rowdy and lacks even the slightest, most basic sense of propriety. Any attempt at discipline is completely lost on this pooch.
I found her wandering in the middle of a road near the Raleigh neighborhood of Memphis (an ever-declining area to say the least). I left some treats, which I keep in the middle console of my SUV, on the sidewalk and waited to see if she would notice. Long story short: she bolted to my side and wouldn’t leave. Lacking the impudence to simply leave her stranded, I picked her up and basically dumped the canine at my mom’s house.
Initially less than thrilled, mom has now developed an emotional attachment to this raucous thing. Her other three dogs, on the other hand, are less than thrilled. I guess that’s my fault. Sometimes my heart is bigger than my head.
