Several weeks ago, some kind-hearted ladies in the Pomaria area consoled and protected, until animal control arrived, our 15-year old black chow-chow, Fanny, deaf and partially blind, as she stumbled around in the highway, befuddled, two blocks from her home.
Meanwhile, searching in the opposite direction until dark, our family spent those hours, the sleepless night, and the following early morning hours in distress, imagining Fanny’s terror and possible condition.
Mid-morning the next day, Dr. Booth, a volunteer at the shelter, recognizing Fanny, telephoned to tell us that she was safe and with a few more telephone calls, we were allowed to pick Fanny up.
We found her dry, warm, with food and water, an attendant worried about her, and napping on a clean floor.
She obviously had a better night than we did.
We are immensely thankful to all concerned with Fanny’s adventure and wish to point out that when Christian values, such as kindness to animals, coincides with tax-payer dollars, which pay for animal control, we can have magical moments like this when we see our tax-dollars at work and the work is a blessing.
Thank you all.
