We had two stray dogs turn up in our yard a few weeks ago. They were sad looking and desperately hungry and thirsty. One of them had some sort of back brace on. This happened when the Factor was here and he had sympathy for them. He also got close enough to them to see that one had a tag on his collar with a phone number. Not something I would have done. I'm usually too scared of stray dogs.
Remind yourself here, here and here about our previous experiences with stray dogs.
So we phoned the number and told the man we had two of his dogs. I half expected him to deny they were his dogs. So many people dump their dogs in the country.
But he said he'd get someone to come get them. About thirty minutes later a truck load of people came. I might have been scared if I had been here on my own.
