Snow Snow Snow and a dog called Wags

Last night I was driving home and saw a dog out over by Storm Mountain Park...he wouldn't come to me.. but he sure wanted to go for a car ride. Once I opened the car door he jumped right in. I called the number on his tag but no answer. So I brought him home to weather out the night with Jake and Daisy. This dog was a mixed collie really sweet and very submissive. His name is Wags. It took him about an hour to feel ok with spending the night with strangers. This was around 1AM.. Daisy hit her second wind and decided it was time to play with this new friend. Around 4AM I finally had to put poor Wags out in the living room with Daisy in the bedroom with me and shut the door to get some sleep. Everyone survived the night and I tried a few more times to contact Wags owners before I had to contact Animal Services to come and pick up Wags. He spent the morning in the backyard hanging out and chilling before they picked him up. Sure wish I could have reached his owners, I hate having them go to the shelter. However its a $700 fine if you don't take them to the shelter. I am guessing that Wags family has just moved to the area and might be out of town for a day but hopefully they will rescue him from the shelter soon.

On another note, a big winter storm is hitting us. The snow from our last big storm had almost melted today! This is an interesting link to go to, there are a bunch of little camera icons you can click on to see current road conditions. Right now all you will see is a lot of tracks in the snow!
