What is with me and Stray Black Labs in Clayton? Another Stray Black Lab Rescued By David O'
I was heading home on Sunday to watch the Superbowl and had just pulled into my Neighborhood when this big black lab comes running across the road in front of me. I stopped and turned to see him run across a major road, luckily there were no cars.
I got out and went across to try and catch him and he was acting like a pup who was too scared to stop. He went behind a fence and I lost him. I got back in the car and was about to continue when he comes bounding across the road again and this time almost got hit twice!
I went after him again, of course he was gone in a flash, so I waited and called and called and out of the blue he comes charging for me, this could be good or bad I thought, so I lunged for the collar and managed to get a hold of him.
I put the nasty smelling, dirty critter in the car ( that I had not just cleaned). Put him in our back yard and let our lab Carly out to investigate. They had an absolute blast, after some pecking order was worked out, Carly did the pecking.
I found a stray black lab in Clayton under the exact same conditions about two years ago and brought that one to the no kill shelter where he was eventually adopted.
This one had a collar but no tags WHY? I grew very fond of him in a short while as did my youngest son Rory and Carly did as well although she won't admit it. I thought if no body claims him we would keep him and he would have a blast with Carly......Guess what.
Kelly posted an add on Craigslist on Monday and within two hours he had been claimed.
