I couldn't find anything already posted about Chance, the Dolorey's family dog. You have no doubt heard or followed the tragic news story about James Delorey, a seven year old little boy from South Bar, NS, who was lost in the woods with his dog, Chance. Rescuers found him this past Monday, but sadly he died in hospital. I live in a nearby community and there wasn't a dry eye on the island when we learned that he had passed.

Here is the story, and there are related stories I believe on the CBC site at

One of the most touching things I've seen was this drawing in the Chronicle Herald (Halifax).

I just wanted to post a small tribute to Chance, who is thought to have stayed with James the whole time he was missing. He came back to the family home and rescuers were able to trace his pawprints in the snow to the little boy. He is a true hero.
