Finding Chico

What a day, The first beautiful day in three weeks (sunny, spring-like, and somewhat warm). Last week we discovered what appears to be the only dog run in Budapest, so we took Duncan this morning. When we arrived there was a small, cute Shihtzu 'we are calling him CHICO' running around and he and Duncan started playing with one another. The strange thing is there was no owner to be found. We stayed for over an hour and nobody came for him. We thought maybe this was a local custom (like leave the dog in the dog run while you go shopping), but still even that concept seemed very strange. We left the dog run to search for the owner and chico followed us, leaving the dog run through a small hole. We met a few other dog owners and none of them recognized chico and we could infer that they too thought it was very strange that he was alone. So, we had no choice, but to take him home with us. We have contacted a lost & found for dogs. Tomorrow I will be placing signs around town with his picture and take him to the vet. This evening I took Chico for a walk and let him lead to see if he would take me to his home, no such luck, though I discovered a great second hand shop. Duncan & Chico are getting along, but I am worried. His parents must be freaking out. I am confident we will find them, somehow. I will keep you posted. And, it was only 3 days ago that Max said, "I wish Duncan had a friend here, he must be so lonely when we are at work".
