His story? Apparently, the Beagle mix had been dumped in Garner, and the woman who has hanging on to him was concerned, as her dog was acting aggressively toward him. She, and some friends had posted his photo on Facebook after scouring Craigslist for his owners, and they were looking for someone to at least foster him until a wonderful home could be found.
I immediately moved on the little guy, and by Sunday morning, Nelson, as I started calling him, was happily cruising toward my home in my little Lancer.
I don’t think I can keep him in this little apartment with the cat and the dog, but he really has been a joy. His first night, he ran about 2 miles with me on the Greenway, and hopped up on the bed with me. I woke up early yesterday morning, and hit the dog run with him before work.
I have to admit, now that I potentially have a very kind family lined up to take him, that the thought of him not being here sort of makes me sad. But while he’s here, he sure makes a damned good running partner. 🙂
