This weekend, while the kids were over, I got to know Francis, the One Eyed Mountain Dog.
A female mutt, brindled, with overtones f some type bull dog or pug, but mainly mutt. Son Joey's wife, Melissa, found her while they were visiting his mother in Eureka Springs, AR. Whatever her story was before they found her, she was spayed and her eye had been stitched shut professionally. When Joey and his wife found her, she was showing a lot of rib ad the collar she wore was so dry-rotted that it was almost ready to fall off. Obviously a stray, we'll never know what happened to her previous owners.
With good care and regular food, she's "slicked-off" and is really a sweet dog. She's also a bottomless pit. Probably an artifact of the time when she was hungry and eating whatever she could find. Francis is a good dog, gentle around kids, makes friends easily, fairly quiet, but she loves to eat. She's also an affection sponge; she'll sit quietly and et you scratch her for as long as you're willing.
That's a good dog, right there. Both she and Joey did good when they found each other.
