The Christmas Puppy

The Christmas Puppy

My daughter Erin found this little guy shivering  under her parked car in the driveway, freezing and starving in the cold Northern Colorado wind.  He is very small and obviously just a puppy and was filthy and had been outside for at least a day.  She fed and bathed him and warmed him up, and he slept the rest of the day while receiving hundreds of sweet little kisses from my 2 1/2 yr old granddaughter Cosette.

Erin asked everyone she could find in her neighborhood, no one knew where he belonged.  Her best guess is that he has a Christmas present – but was unwanted and abandoned.  Who could leave such a tiny puppy out in the cold to freeze to death?  He is totally adorable and we are trying to find a home so he doesn’t have to suffer the trauma of going to the Humane Society.  Cosette is allergic to dogs, keeping him isn’t an option for their family, and my German shepherd and lab would have him for lunch (to say nothing of what my alpha cat would have to say about it).
