But, I'm happy to announce we found sweet Lucky's home!!!
The owners got in touch with us yesterday and Mr. Ruby took him home sweet home. He was a sweet little guy, and we were happy to save him...but if we couldn't find the owners, three dogs would have been way too much!!! (Although Mr. Ruby would most definitely disagree).
Speaking of rescuing animals, it is seriously in my blood.
I can't stand the thought of a lost, homeless, injured, or needy animal.
I'm a sucker, really.
And I was reminded of this as I got an e-mail from my best friend last night.
So picture this: I went home for a wedding a few weeks ago and my best friend and I were driving to the rehearsal dinner. We had our cute little sundresses and high heels on. When suddenly I notice something up ahead crossing the road.
I yelled, "STOP, I think it's a turtle".
My best friend chuckled and replied, "We are not stopping in the middle of the highway for a turtle."
I begged. And begged.
So, my bff pulled on over and of course grabbed her camera. What a sight, right? Blond girl dressed up in heels pulled over on the side of the road to rescue a turtle.
That's exactly what I did. I went to the middle of the highway, stood for a minute contemplating how to pick the thing up, finally picked up the turtle, and rushed him to the side of the road.
How did the little guy thank me?
The poor thing was so scared, he peed. All over. Like, everywhere.
I could absolutely not make this up if I tried.
