well folks it looks like i got my christmas miracle after all.
for today, the owners of the dog that i've found on christmas day came by my house to come get their dog. But the dog didn't want to go back home with them.
I don't know why considering that the dog was never abused or anything. Also the dog didn't bear any scratches or marks and it seemed perfectly healthy. Oh well. Well, anyways, the owners decided that since their dog is much happier with me and since they think i can take much better care of their dog than they could, they decided to let me keep him at no charge. So they left and now the dog belongs to me for good.
it looks like i got my christmas gift after all. A real miracle this dog is. And might be my familiar or a gift from the Goddess. You never know.
now to see what i should name the dog though.
