lost & found


last night, in a thunderstorm,
maisy took off.
she has never run away in all of her 6 years.
we searched by scooter, bike, and car for 3 hours,
calling her name.
{"MAY-zee!  Maisy, come!"}
at one point, there was
thunder, lightning, and torrents of rain.
but, no little white doggy.
after staring at her empty dog bed,
i fell asleep feeling terrible.

this morning,
i was on the phone reporting our "lost dog"
when the mailman delivered a box from my mom.
maisy was right on his heels.
he said that she had been following him
all morning.
oh, maisy-girl.
what would we do without you, kooky dog?


but, that's not all
that happened yesterday...

emily had seen what she guessed was a wild rabbit
while she was walking the day before.
she headed out yesterday evening
saying she wanted to see if it was still there.

it was.
and it was very near a busy road.

she called and asked marian bring a box,
and the two of them were able to catch
THUMPER.

emily immediately made and posted
"FOUND BUNNY" signs.

(please let me know if you discover
that you have misplaced your bunny.)

hello, my name is catie.
i have three kids, two dogs, two ducks,
one cat, and someone else's rabbit.

I am laughing and thinking that is one smart bunny!!! He knows a good home when he sees it. That rabbit must be someone's pet to be handled so easily. My sister has 2 pet bunnies if you need bunny advice. Oh Dr Dolittle would be so proud. Love you and your zoo Catie Grace!!!

Laughing out loud! Your sweet family is a natural animal rescue magnet....a safe haven for all who are lost or abandoned! No doubt it's your nurturing spirit. If I lose my way, can I show up at your door too? ;)
I'm so happy Maisy found her way home... xoxo
