Jenny, this deed will do you proud. I went for a run around the neighborhood and found this lost beagle. His owner had driven by a day earlier looking for him. He followed me home with some encouragement. We gave him some pepperoni slices and water in the backyard then called the number on his tag. His owner came, relieved, that evening.
Then, upon finding another creature, I killed it with great pleasure as I recalled Lucy's fateful attack on Sunday. He was quite a large one hiding under a ceramic pot in our living room (the ceramic pot Lucy is always getting in, the ceramic pot I'm always telling her to get out of!!!) May he rest in peace with his other stinging comrade! Aaaargh!
