Gather two old dogs and take them to the safety of the local shelter.
As I was driving home from errands this morning, these two old dogs galloping along the sidewalk swerved into the street in front of me. I stopped as quickly as I could, but one dog didn't emerge immediately. When I opened the door, he was there like a good hitchhiker.
The dogs were friendly, old, exhausted. I invited them in. They were happy to oblige (with a little help for the squat Basset Hound), and with nowhere to keep them and NO TAGS ON EITHER DOG, I opted to take them straight to our local shelter where they'll be safer than running into traffic on a busy four-lane thoroughfare (or the freeway just a bit further down the road they were traveling).
Yes. The dogs were friendly. They'll make great pets. If their owners fail to pick them up, I'm sure these two will find nice new homes. And I hate the thought of dead animals in the road.
