In yesterday's post someone posted in the comments about their concerns of the amount of stray animals that South Nashville has. There is no denying that we have a problem. I know of at least 2 people who have been bitten. Unfortunately, atleast on my street, I don't think the roving dogs I see are even strays. I think they belong to irresponsible owners who don't understand the importance of a fencing in their animals.
On a positive note, one of these strays did become a member of our family. Marvin came to me one day when I was taking out the trash just a few months after we bought our house in 2007. He was skin and bones (hence the name Starvin' Marvin) and oh so sweet and I didn't have it in me to leave him out there. So in he came and he fit right in with our little mini family.
So I had to share this video with you. Marvin is the yellow one on the left. The little brown one is Eli (we like to think that our dogs are Jewish).
