Lyle the Kindly Dogling

Loty and Lyle relaxing. He is excellent at causing relaxation.

Yesterday, Zeke went outside and found a stray dog (he thought for a little while it might have been a small pig) who was neglected badly. The small dog had sticker burrs all over it and was filthy and flea ridden. So I took the dog in and put it into the bath tub. I pulled out stickers and pulled out stickers until I was tired of pulling out stickers. So I called for the scissors and started just cutting the matted ones out. Soon most of them were out and I picked him up and put him on my lap in the middle of our garden tub and started catching fleas and killing them. I finally took him out and dried him. Later I gave him another bath and finished getting off all the dirt and grime.  He  looks so cute now and clean. I couldn't have been able to do this so easily with out the help of our friend Amy Glasscock coming by and watching the kids for  a while. Zeke was there to help with the dog as well. It felt good to hold a baby in my arms again!

Lyle is ADORABLE!! And how wonderful that you were able to rescue him and clean him up - he must have been miserable! He looks very happy now :)
