Default an elderly boy made my day

I was having a hard day at work yesterday when a co worker told me that a stray dog was walking across the parking lot. I went out and saw an elderly GSD. I called him and he came slowly to me, wagging his tail. I brought him into my office and saw from his tag that his name was Ranger. I called the number on the tag and his owner , who was at work said he has access to the house and yard but must have decided to walk himself because she had missed their daily walk for two days and had opened the gate! Ranger is 12 years old. She was going to ask to leave work immediately to get him but I assured her Ranger was happily settled in my office near the heater. She came about an hour later. Such a great GSD. Really made my day. Seniors have so much wisdom

What a handsome old guy, That's great you were able to identify and contact the owner. Great job to you for stepping up and helping him out.

I'm also a sucker for the seniors ... that was fantastic that you took Ranger in and kept him until his owner could pick him up!!! I LOVE his face!!!
