We had a visitor the other evening.... He reminded mom of Angel T-man? (Pawsonally, I think T-man is much better looking!!) Just in case any of you are worried about my status in this household in the event that this is yet ANOTHER 'present' for me from my so-very-thoughtful mom, please put all your fear to rest.

Mom took us out for our evening walk and this little dude appeared from under some bushes. He started playing bitey-face with Hershey (Correction: Hershey was doing the biting most of the time and the poor guy was just trying to get away from the evil teefies). Oh man, I did feel sorry for him but on the other hand, he seemed to be enjoying it and kept going back for more. Mom was looking around for his owner but after 30mins, there wasn't any sign of the dude's owner and all he had on him was a blue bandana without any identification tag. We had to leave because mom's arm was getting yanked out of it's socket by Hershey...

However, we just couldn't leave him there all alone cos he reminded us too much of T-man... also, we definitely do not want him to get dog-napped!! Off we went to the guard house and left the guards on duty a message that if they see anyone looking for a black poodle, please call mom. On one hand, we knew it was the right thing to do, but on the other hand, mom was worried that the dude's been abandoned or what if no one comes for him?? Sending him to SPCA would mean certain death for him cos unfortunately, the SPCA here only rehomes younger dogs. Gee.. she's gonna have hell a lot of explaining to do when dad comes home that night from his business trip.

The dude came home with us and he and Hershey almost tore the house apart. Mom then decided that they both should 'chill out' APART since they have been going at it non-stop for an hour. (I tell you this Hershey is one hell of an Energizer bunny!!), so she put him in Hershey's cage and put Hershey in the yard. Just imagine the peacefulness that followed...

Fortunately after spending an hour or so in our house, the little dude's owner called!! She came over and collected him and we found out that his name is 'Poppy'. Silly mom forgot to ask how old he is... but Poppy's owner promised that we can go over for a play date anytime. Apparently this isn't the first time Poppy had sneaked out from the house by chewing up the fence!! His exasperated owner told mom that Poppy had 'killed' 3 fences in the short time since they moved in. I reckon she's got a little Houdini in her hands!!

Presenting: Houdini Poppy!!

I'm glad this story has a happy ending..

1) I am not stuck with another sibling (which I don't really need, trust me, one is already one too many!)

2) Mom doesn't have to have a hard time explaining to dad that he's now got three dogs

3) Poppy is reunited with his family

4) We have made a new friend and can go over to Poppy's place for a play date anytime we want

Hmmmm.. do you think it's possible that Poppy was sent by Angel T-man to visit me?

One never knows what Angel Pups are khapable of doing!

It was furry nice of your mom to take such good khare of him!!


Sparky said...


Oh my dogness, I haven't hung around your bloggy in a while, I can't believe you got a brother! Hershey must be pretty crazy, eh?

I'm so glad you guys looked after Poppy until his human found him again! I reckon the "Houdini" part is a poodle thing, 'cause I've destroyed and escaped many a fence as well... Hee hee...

He sure does look like T-man! I'm glad you found a new friend!


Lorenza said...

Hi, Huskee and Hershey!
Your mom is so nice taking care of him. Glad his owner came to get him.
I know you are happier than anyone!
I just can imagine all the fun he and Hershey had!
I hope you had a great weekend
Kisses and hugs

That was very nice of your mom to bring Poppy home so his mom could find him. Sounds like Hershey had fun with him too. And you have a new friend to visit.

What a great story with a HAPPY ending!!!

T-man's mom said...

What a sweet little pup...he sure does look like T-man. Aww..if I lived closer to you, and he really was homeless, I would have adopted him. But I'm glad that he already has a home. I hope his person can solve the fence issue. T-man would have called him a "poo-dini"!!

Thanks Huskee, Hershey and mom for babysitting Poppy. I'm sure T-man Angel is happy you took care of his look-a-like.

Moco said...

For sure he was sent my Angel T-man. How else can you explain it. Grammie might say something about aliens, but she is a senile old woman.
At least you now have someone to share Hershey with.

Achilles Wong said...

Wethinks your mom is really cool for looking after the poor puppy. He must have been scared being far from his home. We hope the fence gets fixed so he won't escape again.

We could just imagine your relief when Poppy's owner came to get him. You must have prayed really hard, didn't you ;) Don't you think it would have been nice to have a brother that looks like T-man, though?

We're happy everything turned out well. And the best part was, you found a new friend.

drooly kisses,


Sparky said...

Oooh, Hershey's a girl eh? Oops! Well, sure, I wouldn't mind trading Hazel and Hershey for a while, it might be a very interesting experience, and maybe Hazel can have some hammie time with Moosie!


Amber-Mae said...

Hey guys! Gosh, that little bugger could have been harmed or kidnapped after roaming around outside his home. Good that your Mom took him back till the owner came looking for him. I think the owner needs a stronger wire fence. He does look sooo much like T-Man!

Pee's: Check out mah new post!

That was nice of your Mom to bring Poppy back! If not, he might have been captured by some nasty hoomans.

Glad Poppy's owner came and got 'em. But it sounds like Poppy and Hershey had a good time. Did Hershey sleep good afterwards?

Could very well be. Maybe an Angel helped him to escape in the first place.
I'm glad there was a happy ending.

It must have been fun having a visitor for awhile, especially because there was a happy ending to this story!


Pedro said...

By the way - I like the changes to your blog! I really like the paw print background :P


the 4 Bs said...

oh we love this story and its happy ending. Poppy is very cute and he does remind us of T-man Angel. we think that T-man Angel did send him to you, just to let you know that he is looking out for you. we just hope that Poppy stays safe and doesn't continue to escape out of his yard. next time he may not be so fortunate to be rescued by you.


Lady Kaos said...

He's very cute and I'm glad he's back with his family. 3 fences? Holy cow!!! He's so small! You'd think a fene would hold up to him!
