Mom, can we keep her?!?

In the past week, my son found and helped an injured bird, took in a box turtle that a friend found and now take a look at what followed him and some friends back to our house....

She's a beautiful dog that has apparently been roaming the neighborhood for the past 4-5 days. Some neighbors behind us have been feeding her and would love to take her in but it's not a good time for them right now.

She has clearly been someone's pet. She's well behaved, very good around children and other dogs. She has a collar with a charm, but no registration tag or contact info.

We took her to a vet in town to see if she had a chip but nothing. The kids, of course, think she's now ours. It's a little too soon for me, but I hate to turn this beautiful dog into a shelter. We're keeping her in our yard for the weekend so she stays safe. We'll post signs up around town and see if anyone comes forward to claim her.

In the meantime, we're calling her Trixie.

Trixie is beautiful. She definitely looks like someone's well-loved pet.
