Friday morning our friend, Richard, was going to work and this little lady was lounging on his back patio like it was her home.
She had a collar and leash attached, but none of the numbers listed for her work. She is even microchipped and there is no information listed for her owners. We've put up signs all over the neighborhood, a listing on Craigslist and with the Fulton County Animal Control. Nothing yet.
Because she's a pit bull we're scared to take her to AC. All stray dogs have to go through AC in Georgia before they can be placed with a rescue group or with the Humane Society. If they are with AC past 5 days the other groups can pick up the dogs. Every rescue group we've called is full or won't take her breed.
She's absolutely adorable. She love to cuddle more than I do - if you can believe that. She's housebroken and crate trained (note: she isn't happy about it, but she knows it's her home.) She hasn't chewed anything in the house and we even let her out of the crate for one night. We took her to the vet to be looked at and she's in perfect health. She's fixed and no more than 2 years old.
If there is anyone out there who recognizes this little girl or who would love to give her a loving, forever home, please email me or comment on this post. We can't keep her.
Our weekend wasn't only dedicated to the new addition to the house, we hosted a BBQ and tackled some projects around the house.
We had two successful projects, one failure. Not bad for our first weekend working together. We tried to strip the paint from the gold mirror I found at a yard sale - well, stripping the paint also melted the plastic of the mirror. Fail. Oh well. I'm sure that's one of many project we'll try over the years that doesn't go according to plan.
Because I'm moving in and bringing the ton of stuff that I own, we needed to add storage to the bathroom and reinforce the closets. We added a cabinet that goes behind the toilet to the master bath - it's amazing! We even had an issue with it tipping forward, we fixed that and it's more stable than I ever thought it would be.
The closet was a success too! We put really nice hardware into the studs and that shelf and pole aren't coming down unless the house comes down. Bring on the clothes!
While we were at Lowes we also picked up some paint samples for the master bedroom and bath and the living room. More on that as we paint. I'll take more pictures.
