Well, miracle of miracles, we met up with our German shepherd stray ‘s owners yesterday and were able to return her to her proper home. She lived about 2 miles down the road and somehow managed to make it to our deck and park herself here for the week. A friend of the wife saw the notice I put on the Owen County facebook page and they called Monday. We weren’t sure it was the right dog because they said a younger age than my vet thought and the facial markings were off a little in the picture she sent, but we agreed everyone would feel better if they took a look. Sure enough, it was their dog. Everybody went home happy. The funny part is that I couldn’t decide between the name Sadie or Sophie. Neither one seemed quite right. Her real name is Shadow. Pretty close if you ask me, for a shot in the dark.
In the meantime, I inked up the castle entryway. It has a plain stucco wall for the entry area and rear turret, red window trim and some sort of wooden shingle above the lower stone. There is a little bit of greenery growing on the stone bases, which will add some nice colors. Washes up next.
