Lost Dog Found!

September 23, 2015

My Heart came home in the middle of the night and is laying right here by my side. Yesterday, I had heard that dogs often travel at night so I left the garage door open as well as the door that leads from the garage to the backyard (the garage door is the only way she comes and goes from the house for her walks so I wanted to make her typical path available). I put her bed, food, and my dirty socks on the patio for her to find. Then I laid awake listening and watching (windows were open). Around 1:00 in the morning I heard 5 scratching noises outside. I called and called and didn’t see anything. I decided to check in the garage and make sure no vandals were messing around. Then Tess came hobbling up. She has not left my side since. She is suffering from exposure and her foot pads are raw from 4 days of running. I am very happy to carry her around until they heal. I’ll take this as one of the miracles that I will see in my lifetime. Loving Tess who is 4-ever home.

Thanks to all who helped make this possible.  Especially Nancy Brown who did not know me or Tess but gave of her time and experience to help us.
