Learn English - a member of our family

We found him a few weeks ago, walking along the road in a rural area. He was jumping on cars, and we thought maybe his family was camping somewhere nearby, so we passed him by. A few hours later, on our return trip, he was still in the same place, again, trying to get folks to stop for him. When he saw us, he laid down in the middle of the road, so we were unable to get around him.

我们是在几周前发现他的,当时它正走在一条乡间的小路上。它试图跳上我们的车子,我们想它的家人大概在附近露营,所以也没有多想,就把车子开走了。几个小时后,在回程的路上它又出现在相同的地方,试图让经过的人停下。当它看到我们的时候,就立马躺在路中间,让我们没有办法摆脱它。

We stopped the car and looked around for a few minutes, trying to figure out if anyone was around from whom he was separated. It didn’t appear so. Then we took a good look at the dog. He had no collar and he was really thin. We decided he was abandoned.

我们停车在附近张望了几分钟,想要看看丢失它的主人是否就在附近,结果没有主人出现。这时我们又好好观察了这只小狗,它没有带项圈,而且十分消瘦,它应该是被遗弃了。

My husband said, “If he doesn’t bite me when I try to pick him up to put him in the car, then we have a new dog.” The dog happily joined us with no fight at all. The only thing we were in danger of was getting licked to death. He kept sticking his head between the two front seats and thanking us for picking him up.

丈夫说,要是他不咬我,我们就收养它。一路上狗狗和我们相处融洽,一点儿都没有冲突,它舔得我们快要窒息了。他坚持把头伸到我和丈夫的座位中间,就好像感激我们收留它一样。

The dog was clearly on the road for some time. He was extremely under weight. He was covered in scars and new wounds. We have surmised that some of the scars were from when he was on the road, we are thinking possible fights with coyotes, but he also looks as though he was used for fighting other dogs. We figured his incredibly sweet personality was the reason he was abandoned. He must not have been a good fighting dog.

这只狗肯定在路上流浪了有段时间,骨瘦嶙峋,我们还在他的身上发现疤痕和新的伤口。我们推测他的上伤是在路上土狼或者是和其他狗打架所致。这只狗脾气很好但也可能是被抛弃的原因,它不是一只好的斗犬。

So, we fed him a lot over the course of the next two weeks and he gained over twenty pounds. We took him to the veterinarian, who said the dog appears to be in good health, despite his having been abandoned. The vet guessed the dog is about two or three years of age, from the condition of his teeth. The vet gave him all the required shots and sent us on our way.

收养它的头两个星期我们喂了它很多,它身上有超过20处伤口。于是我们带它去看了兽医。兽医告诉我们,除了被抛弃,它的身体状况良好,从它的牙齿推测它大约两三岁大。医生给它注射完所需要的疫苗以后,我们就回家了。

We do love this dog. He has obviously been mistreated and yet, he still is so very sweet. He had no manners, but he is a quick learner. He no longer tries to get on the bed, but he does like sitting in one of the folding chairs.

我们很喜欢这只狗。他之前显然是被虐待了,它还是一如既往的好脾气。它没有什么坏习惯,但是它学东西很快,它不再跳上我们的床了,它更喜欢一张折叠椅。

Since then, he has become a member of our family.
