Today has turned out to be a great day!
I got a phone call just before noon from a lady over 10 miles away saying my dog was in her yard. I asked for a picture of him, and sure enough it was him! There were tears of joy, and I couldn’t get to her house fast enough.
He is doing fine, considering he has been gone for days. He seems to have lost a little weight, but that’s minor compared to what could have been. He has had a bit of food and is now napping on the living room floor.
I will resume his regular feeding schedule in a couple days. Right now I am going to give him smaller portions, but not exceed his total allotted amount in a day. I’m sure he hasn’t eaten much of anything since his breakfast Monday morning.
When a pet goes missing, don’t be quick to give up the search. And by letting local vets and shelters know one is missing right away, there’s a good chance that’s where the person who finds your pet will call. That was the case with Buddy. The local vet was called, and my number was given out. I was just getting ready to drive into town to hang up posters when I got the call.
Such a happy day!
