Meet Rusty...I was driving my daughter and her friend home from downtown the other night when we came across this little guy in the middle of the road. I was so worried he was going to get hit by a car so I pulled into the refuge lane and rescued him. He seemed relieved and kept trying to lick my face the rest of the way home. I feel lucky to have been there at just the right time when Rusty needed someone...what are the odds?
It was late when we got home so I figured I would start the search for Rusty's family in the morning.
Surprisingly, my animals didn't protest too much to having a visitor. I think the kitty rolled her eyes and I could almost hear her say, whatever...
The next day I took my Lucy and Rusty out for a morning walk. I could see it would be hard to say goodbye when I found Rusty's family.
I had posted an ad on Craigslist about a found dog but didn't get a single email so I took Rusty to the vet to see if he had a chip. Sure enough, he did and the owners were so happy to hear their doggy was ok.
I waited with Rusty at the vet clinic for his family to take him home.
Rusty was so excited when they arrived, it was a happy reunion. I miss the little guy even though our time was brief. I couldn't help but cry as I drove home. My daughter teased me about it.
