This is Mommy's story so I'm going to let her tell it. This will cheer everybody up.
Mom- There's a sweet old man at work named Rudy. He's 61 years old and says that they will have to kick him out, to get him to leave. "no retirement for this old man" he says. Anyway, at Thanksgiving one of the Grandchildren left the backyard gate open and all 3 of his dogs ran away. He looked and looked. He found two of them together and brought them home. Daisy, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier could not be found. He went to the animal shelter and talked to "the fine young people there." They had not seen her. A week later he goes back and was lucky enough to talk to the Dog Catcher for his area. She said she hasn't seen her either but she'll keep an eye out.
Now, know that we live in a large metropolis with one main extremely busy animal shelter. Thank God, the place is huge cause the animal shelters in surrounding counties are poor and small. The poor animals in those shelters have a week to get adopted. Sad I know. Zoe promised an uplifting story. So, let me quit preaching. I'm just saying, them helping an old fart find his favorite dog is very, very sweet.
Now Rudy called the animal shelter so much they knew him by his voice. Finely, they had a lead. Right after Christmas the girls said that the dog catcher had something to tell him. So, he ran up there when she was in. She told him she had seen and tried to catching Daisy. She told him what neighborhood it was. So, he started riding through that neighborhood weekly. But, still no luck.
This morning Rudy came up to me and told me he had found Daisy Friday afternoon. He was in that neighborhood and asked a guy that was working in his yard, if he had seen her? He said yes. The guy said the kids had been leaving food for her but she was to skittish to let them catch her. He told Rudy where she was hanging out at.
Rudy went there and he could see her sitting on top of a hill. He called her and she didn't come. So, he made a clicking sound that he does when he's going to feed his dogs. She came running down the hill and jumped on him. He said "if you were a poorly type chap she would have knocked you over." She gave him lots of kisses and jumped right in his truck. He kept saying "she remembered me." I told him of course she did your her Daddy.
He said at first the other dogs wasn't sure of her, he had let them smell each other through the fence. As soon as they started wagging their tails he let her go in with them. He said he's weekend "was like a family reunion." He said she's lost a little weight, so Saturday they took her to the vet, got her checked out. Bought her lots of toys and "She had a good meal." He's so happy and I'm soooo happy for him.
Remember, this pup had been lost sense Thanksgiving, living on that hill at the end of a neighborhood, missing her family. And almost 4 long months later she heard something, looked up and seen her Daddy! Miracles do happen!
What a great story. We love a happy ending!
You read fast, Maedia. Mom was so happy. She really thought that poor puppy was gone for good.
Mom is the Ellie May at her work. So, if there's any animal story that is to be told, it comes to her first. Gee, go figure. Mom says she's sure there's a lot of friends on here that are the Ellie Mays of their work too.
That story was a welcome ray of sunshine in an otherwise gray and sad day. Thank you so much for passing it on.
That is such a good up lifting story glad that puppy is home. Mom says "God is so good to us and He is concerned with the things that concen us..His children" after reading this story I think she might be right.
