Bout 8.30pm after dinner, this black and white male kelpie showed up on our front verandah. Gorgeous dog, so well behaved and friendly. Collar but no id tag. We tied him up under shelter (it was raining) and called round and found who he belonged to. Bloke said he'd come get him in the morning. Man, its really well behaved and well trained dogs like this that make me miss having a dog. But then I see my brother's (four!) dogs who have never been trained and are absolute mongrels that need to be shot, and I think maybe its good I dont have a dog. I'm torn. Been thinking lately I'd love to get another dog. When this guy turned up last night it almost convinced me. But I dont know.
