The hardest part for me is in knowing whether or not the dog is actually a stray. I spent considerable time one morning, even calling in late for work, because I saw a little dog wondering aimlessly up and down the street. I pulled over, watched for a little while and then looked frantically for an owner. No one was around. I spent quite some time convincing the dog to get into my car and was just about successful when a woman opened her front door and came walking out with a leash to claim him. If the dog looks healthy and the weather is clear, I won't make that mistake again!
