Yesterday while I was out and about during my planning period, my friend, Barb, saw me and said, “Come here.  I want to show you something.”

Curious, I followed.  You never know what you’re going to see when it’s Barbara leading the way.


She opened the door to the assistant principal’s office, and oh my word.

Look at what jumped into my arms…

This cute little fellow showed up on campus…without a collar.

Now you know that a school is comprised mostly of female employees, so there was no lack of mamas fretting about, pouring love upon this cute ball of fur.

Of course, you also know that I have a special place in my heart for furry creatures.

Oh word, but this little guy was just adorable!

Somehow, he acquired the name of “Walter,” so that’s what we began calling him.

I went back during lunch to get my fill of puppy love, and the poor little guy was so exhausted that he nearly fell asleep on my lap.

Meanwhile, there were plans in the works to find him a foster home.

An email was sent, and my friend, Maegan, quickly responded.

I’m sure you’re surprised that I didn’t volunteer; however, I knew that I would be dead meat if I brought Walter home.

Maegan was the perfect person to claim him for she’s a gentle soul whose heart overflows with love for everyone and everything around her.

I talked to Maegan on my way home, and I offered to loan her my crate.  I even told her that I would deliver it.

Don’t tell her this, but it was the perfect excuse to love on that fur ball again.


I don’t know what the future holds for Walter.

Maegan has an older dog, so she’s going to see how the two get along.

Attempts will be made to locate the owner; however, the AP and an office assistant rode around the surrounding neighborhood and knocked on doors asking if anyone was missing the dog.  Nobody claimed him.

One thing is certain.

With such an adorable face and a sweet disposition, that baby will have no problems finding a permanent home.

  1. Puppy dog eyes are so hard to resist : )

  2. As soon as I saw the picture of him, I thought for sure he’d find a home with you 🙂 Glad he’s being looked over & taken care of.

    I think I’d take in every stray that I find too… Ricky always gives me grief about it – but he’s as bad as I am 🙂

  3. Any vet can and usually will scan them for free to see if they are chipped. I would have Foster mommy call the Humane Society or closest clinic to see if they can scan and pull up his home details.
