I am still up working at my grandparents house until this Friday. I finished work around 3 today and arrived back at their house, plopped down on the couch, opened my book, and began reading. I had only been reading for a few minutes, when my grandpa came into the house announcing that there was a giant dog outside.
Well… his exact words were:
“Holy cow, there is a dog the size of a deer out there”
So naturally I shut the book and headed outside, wanting to see this dog for myself. I was dismayed by what I encountered however. This indeed was a dog. There was a collar and everything, but the dog has been clearly either starved, or lost for a very long time. Its ribs are incredibly noticeable.
The dog is a very tall Mastiff, but if any of you have ever seen a Mastiff, you are not supposed to be able to see their ribs. They are very large dogs, both in height and girth. It was sickening to see such a large animal be so skinny.
My grandma fed the dog some food which he scarfed down. We did not want to feed him too much, as to not make him sick. Then we fed him some more just a little while ago.
I wanted to also see how well trained he was, and was glad to see that he knew how to sit and lay down. Clearly someone put some time into training the dog. This is a tricky situation however because Mastiff’s are pretty expensive dogs, and if we put up posters, anyone could claim the dog just to make some money.
Tomorrow I will be going to check around town to see if any “Lost” posters have been put up anywhere. If it comes down to it, I may end up keeping the dog, though my grandparents seem to really enjoy the dog as well.
