Made-Awesome blog. It takes guts to share something like that and I respect you for it! I look forward to reading more.

I put in for a job today that I think I have decent shot at getting. It's with an agency I work with and am on good terms with their staff. It would allow me to do quite a bit of public speaking and writing and both of those are something I very much enjoy. I hope, if it's God's will, it works out!

Hope you all have a great Tuesday. I missed not being around here yesterday!!!
Good luck with the job. Praying everything goes well, Ryan.

Good evening, friends~

I was going to take Har for a walk, and Adrian was looking out of our big front window, and he said you better go around the back way because there's a loose Pug out there. He was darting in front of cars, and running away from people trying to "catch" him. We didn't want to make the situation worse, so I decided to wait. Adrian & I grabbed some treats & went out to help. The owners of the Pug, whose name we found out is Wiggles, didn't seem all that concerned :/ More annoyed than anything, which bothered me. He wouldn't come near them, either. Not really a good sign... The lady said he is scared & won't come when called. He wasn't even interested in the treats. So, after about twenty unsuccessful minutes, the husband decided to drive the car slowly, with the wife & daughter walking behind, in hope that Wiggles would just follow. He started to, and got out of our vision, so we headed back home. I took Har out for her walk, but decided to just stay near our block, because I didn't want to distract them if we ran into them again. Well, Har & I were walking near the pond, and I saw him running around it still. Looked to be alone.
I can't see him anymore now, and am not sure he is home safe either. Oh, and he didn't have tags... Please keep this sweet dog in your prayers. I just hate situations like this. Thanks.

XO

now that I don't work I would make that for you but I'm afraid it would be cold by the time you got it!

I don't know, merry... I was nauseous while I was out there, I was more upset than they were... I was scared he was going to get hit by a car here in our neighborhood, or run towards the highway. At first, it was just 3 little girls chasing him. Then, as I was walking up, one of the girl's parents drove up, and it was their dog.

The husband was a jerk. He told the wife in front of all of us trying to help, that he wasn't going to get out of the car...

There's sidewalks all around the neighborhood! For us to walk, and for our pets. Not sure how he got loose. But, he should've had tags & a leash on. Not only is there a leash law, there's also that rule to live in this neighborhood. Grrr...

You're right, some people just shouldn't have pets!!

xx
