About my exciting Sunday
It started with the biskhuit hide and hunt - The Doggy Nanny got a chukhkle out of this one - I walked by a time or two 'til I stashed it here
This was after Mom pulled it free fur me
Mom's view as I took it to the kitchen fur munching!
Good thing I was energized fur my afternoon would be lots of fun - I'll let Mom tell woo about that
Thanks Khyra! Yes, it was quite the interesting afternoon! I had gotten the paper from the front porch - and fed 'Khyra's Khats' - whilst doing so, I saw an unfamiliar dog trotting down the street - with no human along - the dog was wearing a collar - I walked out to the street and called 'hey pup - come here' - whistled a bit
but they were on a mission and were even with the pumping substation and not looking back - I felt badly but at that point, I couldn't do much more - I went inside and told The Doggy Nanny about what I'd just seen - and hoped for the best -
SO, a few hours later, Khyra and I head out for our walk - I always let her choose the route - she turned to the right out of the driveway but when we got to the 'corner', she chose left - a slightly different first walk for her but I didn't deter her choice - but before we made the turn, we saw Baloo and Antarre's Mom - she called to us - we went back to her vehicle - she told us she was out looking for Kirstie's dog - Kirstie is her daughter that is Auntie Di's age - they had gotten a call she was spotted in Hepplewhite - I asked what she looked like - and Meg described the dog I had seen a few hours earlier - she said her name was SASSY - she had been missing for more than a week - and they were so hoping they would be able to find her soon before the cold snap arrived - especially since she was an older dog - I told her we'd keep our eyes open - good luck - etc -
SO, we did take the left but then took a right so we could head towards where she had been seen - we did the walk - and as we got back to where the 'high biskhuits' are, we saw a few vehicles gathered to look for Sassy - we decided to help by walking along that way too - hoping maybe we could spot her - and maybe help lure her with another tail - she had been spotted in the next development over by then so we kept our eyes in the yards between the two areas - and headed out to the 'road' we use to go to the store and such - halfway down the street, we saw two men coming down a driveway with A DOG! It turns out Kirstie's brother-in-law and someone living in one of the houses that adjoins the fields where Khyra's Khattle dog pals live - Sassy had been out in that field - the cattle started mooooving towards her - so Scott was able to snag her - he used his belt to leash her up!
Khyra gave Sassy a greeting - and a snoof - and we waited for the rest of the search party to come! It was such an emotional time - in fact, it was so much that DESPITE THE FACT THE CAMERA WAS IN MY POCKET, I COULDN'T GET IT OUT AND TAKE PICTURES - I was on sensory overload! It was so SO when Kirstie and her son Augie arrived to be reunited with Sassy - Sassy made sounds of joy - I'll not forget how they sounded!
Many hugs were exchanged - Khyra passed out khysses - we all wondered what tales Sassy had to tell about the two week walkabout!
As we finished our walk, we passed Meg heading to Kirstie's house - it is probably two to three miles away - she shared that Sassy and their other dog - SAM A GOLDEN RETRIEVER - had gotten out a weak spot in their fence - Sam came home - yes, we know how GOLDEN'S are - but Sassy was on the lamb -
We saw the box of flyers on the front seat of Kirstie's Subaru - we KNOW they were trying to find her - Meg told me of other calls they had gotten with sightings - and how they had gone as soon as they had gotten them - it seems Sassy stayed in the general area that was probably halfway between her house and this neighbourhood - probably dined on some of the cat food and maybe corn in the field - she truly looked pretty good for a dog on her own for two weeks -
SO, that is part of our exciting Sunday afternoon - part of me wishes I had taken some pics - it truly was one of those Granite State Dog Recovery group feeling moments!
Sorry the retelling got a bit long - but we needed to tell it!
Now, I'll turn the post back to Khyra - so she can continue with the rest of the day's fun
Thanks Mom - and yes, I did hear woo tell all the humans present that woo understood the fear and worry and all that stuff since woo had a Siberian - blah blah blah blah - and no, I'm still not telling woo if I'd return if I ever get loose again!
I got to see Antarre again!
He mugged fur the khamera
A leaf sabotaged this shot
Khan woo believe how big he is now? I mean, once upon a time, Auntie Di khould hold him like a wee baby!
Here is the furst video we shared of him - it was last September - and here was our fun from Sunday!!!
Happy Tuesday EvFURRYone!
