Out of the Blue

On returning from dropping MrsBlue at the train today, Hudson the wonder dog, who was along for the ride, started going nuts. It turns out a little stray pug (not that there are big pugs) was wandering past our house. A little girl was chasing behind asking if I knew who he belonged to, but I did not, so we both gave chase, trying to catch the dog without spooking him into the street. Of course that's where he ended up, so I got to play traffic cop stopping cars for him until he was back on the sidewalk, at which point I caught up with him. He didn't have tags, just a flea collar, so I didn't know what to do with him, but I didn't want to leave him on the streets in the rain, so I tried to see if I could pick him up.... People familiar with this breed probably already know where this is going.... I now have four nicks on my hand where the ungrateful little bastard bit me. Of course, he was perfectly justified... it would never do for a dog of Hudson's size to go killing strangers for touching her, but if I had a dog that weighed all of five pounds, I'd probably want it biting at unknown people who tried to pick it up too.

Anyway, I suffered only minor wounds, but painful enough to distract me while the little guy escaped. I'm confident enough that he didn't have rabies to feel safe myself, but I am worried about the safety of the pooch... I hope he finds his way home.
