Those who are very new to the Dingo may not have been around when Bobby came to stay, here’s a brief recap. Anyway, Bobby left the building after staying on an off for several weeks. You may also recall that there was a Beagle with him, but I couldn’t get her to come to me and she just disappeared. Bobby was a really great dogs and I just hoped that he found his way back home.
So now for the update: After going to several properties close by, I never did establish where he came from, and I just hoped he was alright. The Sunday before last, I was getting the Sunday paper and a guy came up to me and asked me if my beagle was a boy or a girl, to which I answered "neither, but it was a boy once". He then went on to tell me that he had a beagle himself and that it just had pups, but he would like to put a begle over it so that he could get purebred puppies to sell (he was a nice guy, but there was a strain of banjo music that seem to follow him around).
I asked him what kind of pups they were, and he told me that they were cross Border Collie and Beagle (I already knew the beagle bit). In theory that should make a pretty good dog, as the Border Collie will give them some sense. I was at home watching TV when I had a Eureka moment…"I wonder if Bobby was the father? After all, he was running around with a beagle!" So there you have it folks, mystery solved, Bobby’s real name is Laddie and this is Belle, the newest of the Willowtree family…..
We’ve got an appointment with the Vet tomorrow at 9:30, as she’s in a pretty bad way. As I said, the people are nice but they’re hillbillies.
