Bogey's Back! His Family is Overjoyed and Grateful
From Stan Pinder, whose Golden, Bogey, was snatched from a neighbor's yard sale:
''Praise God and thanks to everyone's efforts ... BOGEY IS HOME!!!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you so very much! We are exhausted after going to EVERY GARAGE SALE in town and posting hundreds more flyers.
''The thief must have freaked out at all the exposure and CUT HIM LOOSE! We got a call from an Angel who has a Golden. Her neighbor saw him playing with some kids around SW 147 avenue and 72 St. (about 5 miles from our house). She knocked on the lady's door and said: 'Here's your dog!' She said: 'It's not my dog; he's right here!'
''Anyway [the lady] called her dog trainer at Pet Smart, Kathryn O'Dell, and Kathryn gave her our number! Wow! We are so happy around here, completely spent and exhausted but happy and [the lady] is $1,000.00 richer.
''We went straight to Pet Smart to meet Kathryn and buy some stuff for Bogey. He's a bit stressed out and full of ticks, so we have some work to do but, I wanted to thank everyone first.''
Of course, being a Golden, he headed right for the pool, as you can see from these pictures.
This is great! If you read down, you'll see postings about Bogey's disappearance and the family's efforts to get him back. Happy endings are all too rare, as you'll see from the posting below. I wish things had turned out this way for Bronja's owners.
