Meet L’Amour!

I must apologize for leaving you guys hanging on the name for our stray friend.  Just this morning, I was asked by two different people what her name ended up being.  (Thanks Rose & Heidi!)

McD and I never really discussed the list of names everyone submitted, because McD made the pick without me. 

Her name is now, L'Amour.  Thank you for the suggestion, Lisa K.!  Thank you to everyone for submitting such good names!  Just for the record, I was going to call her Chance.

Here's a little L'Amour story for ya.

Yesterday, as I drove down the road, L'Amour saw me leaving the gate, and started running out to meet me on the road.  Well, I was in a hurry, and I didn't have any food or treats with me so I kept going.  It really pulled on my heart strings to have to do that to her, but it was necessary. 

Today, I grabbed some dog food and a treat to be ready in case we saw her on our way to town.  We drove a little out of our way to see if she was hanging around, but she wasn't any where to be seen.  Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw her.  She was running down the hill.  She had seen us, and knew that I'd have something for her. 

I gave her a treat, and poured some dry food out for her.  She was soaking wet, due to the rain, and just wanted a little attention.  I love the way a brief two minute stop along the way really made my day.

    Ah! I love the name 🙂 Do you think L’Amour will end up living with you in your home? Have you tried to bring her closer to your house? She really is beautiful!

    Awww, I know I could never live in the country, because ALL the dogs would come live with me. Do you think she’ll survive the winter outdoors? Will you bring her home eventually?
