Pfunk to the rescue

Pfunk and I were on our way to pick up Chinesetwine for the HOTB MayDay Parade when Pfunk yelled, "PULL OVER NOW! PUPPY!". There was a teacup Yorkie sprinting down Excelsior Blvd in St. Louis Park (a busy street). I pulled over and followed the little one down an alley into a parking lot behind a shop. Pfunk leapt out of the car and called the Yorkie over. She approached Pfunk, but when she tried to pick her up, she started to run away. Pfunk was on her knees and lunged for the puppy rather than let her get away. The dog was wearing a pink jacket and rhinestone collar, but no tags. While I was finding a better place to park the car, Pfunk took her back to Excelsior Blvd, where she found the owner quickly. 

The owner of the Yorkie was also the owner of a shop on the street and was really nonchalant about the whole thing. I think he thought the dog had just wandered out of the shop and Paige happened to scoop him up right outside his door as she strolled by. In reality, two other people had also stopped because they were worried about the dog. Another guy pulled his car over and a woman came over from her yard. 

The best part of the whole event, other than the rescue itself, was what the woman from the yard had to say about what was going through her mind when she saw this tiny dog running down the street: "At first I thought it was a bunny, but then I realized that bunnies don't wear pink sweaters."
