Dulcinea by the Duck Pond

Last Wednesday when we were coming back from San Antonio I saw a horse by the Duck Pond in the same spot where Claire used to be.  Remember Claire?

I had gotten up so early that morning and I was way too tired to have anything register in my head.  I commented to Mom that that horse looked familiar but that it was not Claire.

The next day I had to drive into town and when I saw her, it dawned on me that it was Dulcinea.  I am sure it was Walter's owners idea because her owner did not live with his father-in-law at the time.

There she was grazing away but with no water in sight.  I sure hope they brought her water in the evenings.

She was there at least that I am aware of, for three days.  Then suddenly she disappeared as did Walter from his corral.  Perhaps they are at his nephew's house?

That did not last long

Pedrito being left untied did not last long.  He is way to active for his own good.  I can not afford to have him run off and chase people who happen to walk by mom's property.

I was not able to adopt out Emilio and Selena together.  Emilio went to one home and Selena to another.  In some ways, I miss them.

I bought Pedrito a flea collar last month.  I went to Dollar Tree and saw a dog collar for a dollar and decided to buy one for Oscar.  The cheap Dollar Tree one turned out to be better than the high dollar one I bought for Pedrito.  He loves his collar and it seems to have helped him with those darn fleas.

Where are the puppies?

The five puppies Tammy had were born on mother's property, I saw and took pictures of them all. Two of the puppies found their mother napping under dad's old car and they never went back to their den or their siblings.

The last time I saw them was when they turned six weeks.  I thought I had heard them bark but I never saw them.  One time I gave Tammy chicken bones and she put them on her mouth and took off in the direction of their den.

About two weeks ago when I was feeding Pedrito and he was still tied to the tree close to the fence, I thought I heard dogs barking and running on the lot directly behind where he was. It is a vacant lot with lots of overgrown weeds and shrubs, so I could not see anything.

The neighbor three lots down once told me that Tammy would place her puppies when they got bigger in different lots.  The thing is I have no idea what could have happened to her three puppies. There is a house next to that lot that has about three kids and they play on that lot.  Did they find them and keep them? or did they adopt them out to their friends?  I only hope they ended up in a good forever home.

As far as the two puppies that are still at Mom's...Selena and Emilio...I have not been able to find a home for them.  I take that back, I have found a home for Emilio (the cute one) but I wanted to adopt them out together.

Pedrito is no longer tied up

We have been having a lot of rain in the state of Texas.  Had to go to San Antonio this past Wednesday and were not sure if due to the severe weather conditions we would have to stay overnight or for a couple of days.

Mom asked me to untie Pedrito.  I decided she was probably right, so he is once again free to roam to his heart's desire.

I watched him from the kitchen window for about 10 minutes when he finally realize he was free.  He started running laps around the house.  We had a strong storm that evening so I was glad he was able to seek shelter.

I was a little apprehensive that he might beat up Oscar but so far he hasn't or not that I have seen.

He is actually getting along with Emilio and Selena (the puppies) after having bitten Emilio on the face when he was still tied because he tried to eat his food.
