Dog Magnets

For those of you who follow this blog, you might recall our post about a dog visiting our campsite, now about two months ago.
He was a friendly dog, malnourished, though.  So we fed him cat food and water, and suddenly we had a pet dog. We named him Jet and got him vet checked.  Ultimately we had to find him a new owner as he wasn't friendly toward our Nevelle.  And our cat comes first.

Well, a couple of nights ago, two dogs traveling together decided to make our campsite their own!  These dogs were also happy tail-wagging pups, a male and female.  We couldn't get them to leave, so we gave them water as it was hot and they settled in under the trailer!  Nevelle wasn't too thrilled.

Both dogs were diagnosed by us as having mange.  The poor female's skin was in terrible shape.



We felt badly for them, and felt angry that people are ok with abandoning their unwanted pets in the forest.  How cruel.

So, they were with us 2 days, and yesterday as we broke down our forest campsite, we could see their confusion.  When we later pulled out with the trailer, they stood there watching.  Sad situation.
