The storm blew in a scared, shaking Samson to be in our safe space with a terrified, trembling Tina. How misery indeed loves company! And lucky me, I had two panting, drooling, pacing, silly, scared dogs by my side, in my lap and like old friends together. It was such a gift, and felt to me like some kind of divine intervention.
The owner was beside herself when she called, telling me the dog was far from home, that the door blew open while she was away and that he took off in the storm. She was worried sick and immediately left to come pick up her baby of 13 years.
Funny how things work out and that this dog arrived to our doorstep, of all places. As many of you know, we used to have a yellow lab named Sparkey, our beloved boy, who grew up with Tina.
The moral of the story is...when opportunity knocks at your door, open the door and let it in!
Here is a fine reward for me doing so tonight:
"Dear Mary, Keith and Tina:
"Thank you, thank you, thank you. Samson and I are sending you a big hug and a lick for watching out for us during this very scary storm. Please find me on Facebook and keep in touch so we can have you over to our place to properly thank you for saving Samson’s life.
"Much love and appreciation"
