I was really worried about the small dog as we had hawks flying around all the time. The woman that lives in the second house finally come home and I ask her if she has a chihuahua and she said "Yes, and he is upstairs in the house" I told her No the dog is outside . The woman had left her door open for a minute and the chihuahua being so small ran right past her and got out. The woman thought her dog was upstairs the whole time and did not think anything of it when her dog did not come downstairs to eat. So she when out shopping not knowing her poor dog was outside. People really need to be careful when they have a real small pet as they can sneak out of the without you knowing it.
Thank goodness you saw this lottle guy... just a few minutes ago I saw an add on a facebook group where a young person saw a small yorkie (again more yorkies) wondering around across his house, however his parents dont like street dogs comming into their house
so he just posted that and left the dog out in -15-20 weather
this was acouple days ago if I could have seen the add sooner I would have gone to get him, its not that hard to get him and even just take him to a safe warm place, not sure how anyone can have the heart to just leave him out there. I wonder if it was the same yorkie from that kijiji add I saw...
