The Rescue!
Yesterday, SWMBO had to brake sharply to avoid two puppies in the road.
She managed to grab this one but the other ran off into the fields.

It was ravenous and devoured huge quantities of food.
"Head Shave" Annie called - their dog has just passed on and, of course, fell in love with it.
There is a history of mean spirited folk abandoning unwanted litters in country lanes and the assumption was that this was another example.
It made itself at home (see version) and various friends began a search for the other puppy.

Evening approached. Annie made plans to take it to the Vet this morning for all the expensive series of shots, chip and to buy puppy food with a view to keeping it, while we put notices up and rang round to try to find the owner.
The 'phone rang at about 8pm.
The two puppies had escaped from a farm vehicle over a mile away.
The one in the picture is a potential champion sheepdog!
The other puppy had made its way home (!).
All has ended well. Annie is adopting another in the litter and the future champion is back where it belongs.
(I wouldn't be surprised to see it turn up on our doorstep at a later date looking for more hospitality).

Doesn't look like a future champion, just a very cute little puppy. Lovely picture, Peter, great sad eyes.
Pleased it ended well. Shame Annie couldn't keep the champion but at least you have another from the litter to keep. Two excellent photos.
