Back in the day, there was the hobo code. A mark was placed on the fence post of each house indicating how a hobo would be treated at the house.
Apparently there is a puppy hobo code as well. And our house is marked with “suckers who’ll take you in and give you food.” We end up with more dogs at our house because they just show up.
Luckily they all end up with animal control these days. We’re perfectly happy with just Honey.
