"Did you know that police believe serial killers lure women out of their homes using a recording of a crying child or baby. You hear this: CALL THE POLICE do not go out...I guess unless you can see the baby. " No one could lure me out of the house with the sound of a baby crying. Dog, yes, baby, no! I have seen the email that was going around about that. I dont know if it is true, but would make one think the next time a baby other than their own is crying.
Wow, that is amazing. If I could physically SEE the baby, I would bring a Swiss army knife with me, and go get the baby. ---Allie the Chihuahua http://www.dogster.com/?41063 ---Mönica the Kitty http://www.catster.com/?57596
one day when i was still living at my mom's i found a gsd puppy wandering around her house. so i caught it, checked it over and put it in my moms dog pen and called animal control. i told the woman how old i thought it was and tried to give her as much info as posible so she could find its owner. it wasn't wearing a collar. well the aco came and got her but she grilled me a thousand questions about why i knew so much about the puppy. she thought it was one of my moms females babies and thought i was trying to dump it. all i did was tell her how old i thought it was and what sex it was. and anyone could've told her those things by looking at the dog and its teeth.
I've been picking up dogs for years. Mostly they don't have tags and go to the Humane Society. Sometimes I find the owners, they're usually grateful. I've never had someone YELL at me for helping their dog. How odd. About three years ago, I was taking a group of girls home from Catholic school and we saw a dog running in and out of traffic in a neighborhood that borders on a park. Naturally we stopped and then lured the dog to us with an asiago cheese bagel (after-school treats). A woman from a nearby apartment complex came out and said that she had been feeding the dog, but it was feral and wouldn't come to her. I asked her if she wanted the dog, but she couldn't take it, she was at the limit of animals allowed by her landlord. I dropped one kid off and the rest all came to my house and called their moms. They wanted to wash that dog! After lathering the poor little thing down five or six times, we found that the starved little dog that had been coal black was really a Westie mix! The girls' moms came to get them and one suggested a rescue group that she thought might place the dog. They had the dog spayed, vaccinated and teeth cleaned/pulled. The rescue people didn't have a foster home for the dog and asked if I could keep her until they placed her. She never left. Mrs. MacKenzie (Mickey for short) is sleeping on my bed and waiting patiently for me to get off the computer so that she can snuggle. And after all these years, I discover that she is not a Westie mix at all, but a white Miniature Schnauzer. I had never heard of such a thing. Mickey has floppy ears, like an uncropped Schnauzer; long legs, like a Schnauzer, not short ones like a Westie; and she has a short, docked tail like a Schnauzer, not the erect, carrot-shaped tail of a Westie. I just didn't know that Schnauzers came in white. Goes to show that you never stop learning.
Scout, I would pick up anything that looked like a pure Lab...and have been in the same situation! That was the case w/ the 2 dogs, one looked Lab, I was luckier than you. Catdogmom Never stop learning is one of the wisest statements that I know.
I also wonder if that baby crying thing to lure women out of their houses is a myth. I have seen it on my emails. Other women will send it to me. Hey, Gina, maybe it's like the Goatman!!!!!!!!!!Remember him?
