Elaine Bouschard was out on her property in Los Banos Saturday, when something unusual fell from the sky.

A hawk dropped a puppy from its claws, sending the tiny dog tumbling to Earth.

Bouschard, a 47-year-old apartment property manager in San Jose, did what anyone would do. She scooped up the pup, which she figures is just a month old, and kept it.

"When God drops a puppy from the sky, you keep it," she said. "It was the coolest thing in the world."

Bouschard said she has no idea who the puppy really belongs to, but her intention is to add him to her mix of horses, cats and dogs on her sprawling rural property, which is also home to plenty of hawks.

"I just want the puppy to be safe, " she said.

Though there's a lot Bouschard doesn't know about the puppy, she does have an inkling about why the hawk released the dog from its clutches.

"He's a wiggleworm," she said. "He's a strong, little bulldozer."

Still, Bouschard doesn't plan to name the puppy either Wiggleworm or Bulldozer.

"I'm going to name him Heavenly," she said.
