There is currently an additional quadruped in my compound. L found a tiny 6-week-old female puppy dehydrated and wandering on the median of Bole Rd., sure to get flattened at any moment. She scooped up the doggy and brought her here, promising to find a good home for her. Getnet, my #1 guard, made a nice bed for her in one of Toby's old kennels, and we started giving her lots of water and some food. I called the vet, who makes house calls, and Dr. Dawit agreed to go to the house, check her over, de-worm her and give her vaccinations. I went home at lunch time to see her and tell Getnet the plan. I matter-of-factly said that the "dog doctor" was coming to examine the puppy, give her some vaccinations, and later I would give her a bath and some flea medicine. Getnet got that "you ferenges are so funny" smile on his face and said "I think this puppy is very lucky to come to this house."
