As it happened, on Sunday, on my way to the grocery store, a yellow lab ran out into traffic and nearly got hit. I stopped and opened up my back door, and he bounded right in. He didn't have a collar or any tags,so I took him up to the humane society. While I was there, I decided just to take a look at the puppies.
