...on my way to Michael's tonight to get beads to finish a neck warmer(for the edging) I started at Jimmi's birthday party Saturday night. I got stopped at the light heading west at 95th and Roe. It's a pretty busy intersection in the 'burbs. There was a guy jogger waiting to cross the street on one corner and before the light turned green a beautiful red/white spaniel runs across the street....I though he was with the jogger but no, he turned right and the dog went left and plopped himself in the front yard of the house on the opposite corner. It only took me about no seconds to decide to turn right so I could whip a u-ey and go back to try to collect the dog. By the time I got back to his location another car had stopped. It was a man and woman and their two daughters. We discovered the dog had a tag with name(Lucky!) phone number AND address, which was a huge relief. They made the call, the owners didn't answer but they left a message. We all decided I would take Lucky since they had a dog in the car. I gave them my phone number in case the owners tried to call them back. Long story long, I heard from Lucky's owners and was able to reunite him with them shortly after I left. I was able to make it to Michael's and found some nice beads to complete my project. It makes me happy to know that that nice man and his family and his two sweet little girls stopped to help a lost dog. I was feeling a little peeved after having just been at the grocery store and a man rushed to the line next to me that just opened when there were several people nearby him that had been waiting longer. He also had two little girls with him. Think of the two different lessons being taught by these two fathers to their two little girls.... There are many elderly people in our neighborhood and they were amongst the people waiting nearby to check out at the grocery store. What a jerk!
Anyway, tonight I received a call from the little girls who were with the nice man who stopped to help Lucky. They wanted to know if he made it home ok, and I was able to tell them "yes!", and that I thought it was very nice of them to stop and help. I have a good warm feeling in my heart tonight thanks to them.
