Rocky with Amy!!!
Rocky with Bridget!!!!
I met her Friday night and again Saturday morning - it was her Jeep woo saw in the sunrise pikh I had on Sunday's blog - she has GSD's and one of those Belgian Tervurens - she had a Jindo at one time but she khrossed in the past year - Those four pikhs were sent by the other nice lady Chris that played a furry important part in Rocky's rekhovery - we met her as well Friday night/Saturday morning - she had taken them with her cell and shared them with Rocky's Rescue list at 11:24pm Monday -
I am going to khopy out the note Amy sent us explaining how they did khapture our special pal -
Rocky was rescued tonight!!! He went from being alone, scared and hungry this morning to sleeping peacefully in our living room with a fully belly and clean coat.
We got a call at around 5PM that he was in someone's yard. He had run behind their shed. Ironically enough, Andrew and I had just left a flier in their mail box today. Chris was closest, so she arrived first, followed by myself and Bridget. Chris did an amazing job watching Rocky, talking to him and throwing food (which he wouldn't take). We sat there for 2 hours. Bridget and Chris switched places, and a few minutes later, Rocky began to creep towards me at the largest exit. He laid down, and Bridget told me to slowly approach him, so I crawled to him (through a lot of nasty stuff!) sooooo slowly. I was able to extend my arm just enough to touch his nose with one finger, and when I did, I knew we had him. I could feel the relief coming from his body. He let me touch him, and I held onto his collar and slipped a leash on. That was it--we had him!!! We were all crying like babies. We couldn't have done it without Chris' patience and Bridget's direction.
After a few minutes, Rocky ate and drank. I am taking him to the vet tomorrow. We didn't want to traumatize him any further tonight since he's in good shape, just hungry and tired. He is doing well with our pack and loving the attention. I can't believe that he is the same dog I saw a few nights ago. I truly believe that Rocky wanted to be rescued and wanted someone to reach out and touch him. Rocky wants a family to love him and give him the attention that he so deserves. I know he will find that, and until then, he will be with us...though we would love to keep him...but 4 dogs is too much already. :-(
And, finally, I want to thank you all for your prayers, support, tears and love. Rocky has no idea how lucky he is, but I know how lucky he and I both are to have all of you. We truly have an amazing rescue family, and I am humbled by the generosity and love I have felt from each of you.
Last week I indikhated there wouldn't be a Walkin' Wednesday fur various reasons - WELL, we decided to upload what we had shot - here is the link fur that one -
The furst one was filmed when we didn't know Rocky was on the loose - and the sekhond was filmed when we didn't know he was already in protekhtive khustody!
BUT since woo've been deprived of seeing my phloofy self in akhtion - and listening to my mom babble as only she khan do - we decided to give woo a DoubleShotOKhyra - especially since next week is THAT day of the month already!
BTW, khan woo believe this? Here is part of a khomment left by a certain large - ummm - bummed khanine gal from the other part of Pawsylvania
Oh sweet Rocky...he must be so thirsty and tired...perhaps I should pop up there for some rehydration with him? Does he date?
