The Walden Effect: Farming, simple living, permaculture, and invention.

Yeah...I was highly motivated to meet the dog's potential new owner today.

A nice couple showed up with a little boy who promptly announced the dog's new name is now officially Corndog! He said his other dog is called Cookie Monster.

The guy said he hunts with other people in the area and if he figures out who the mysterious David Hale is, he would contact him at that point and get his dog back to him.

We are very relieved to be back to a one dog/two cat farm.

So these might be the sweetest pictures ever. I'm glad you found a home for him. Brian and I would have taken him if you hadn't.

I'm so glad you said that! I also thought they were the cutest photos ever, and was surprised no one had commented. :-)

I saw in an obituary for Sammy Hale that a David Hale from Nicklesville is a brother of James, Fred, Ronnie, and Mike Hale- all residents of Nicklesville. Might help the new caretakers of Corndog find his owner.

I couldn't seem to get in touch with a single Hale from Nickelsville. A lot of the numbers were disconnected and no one else was home. Maybe they're all on some family vacation? :-)

(Good idea with the google search. I should have done that earlier!)

Oh, they are sweet pics with such expressions of caring and trust on both sides. We're smiling even if we don't comment!
