This just came in... he will be returning to the sending rescue.. they want to keep him now..



Today a neighbor about 1+ miles away called the dog catcher to say a dog was in her backyard. Dog catcher called me. I was on the way to store but turned around and called Mary who was still out looking. In fact, I picked her up from a ditch. We drove there and she went to the backyard and saw him. He started to turn away. She went face down to the ground and kept only a slight gaze out as she held out a Slim Jim treat that she knows he loves. He crept over & nibbled the Slim Jim and soon hew was in Mary's arms. Joyous Moment!! She brought him back to the car wrapped in her coat, crying her eyes out. Barley is down sleeping on the couch with his good friend Bailey. Now Elise getting AAA to pull Mary's car out of the mud on the logging trail where it got stuck this morning. High drama, Happy ending.
