Letter: An angel watching over their dog
On Sunday, Oct. 17, while we were out of state, Sedona, our Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, escaped from her pet sitter’s yard.
Sedona is a small, timid girl and we had little hope she would come to a stranger. We arrived home at 1 a.m. and drove through the area calling her name until 3 a.m.
By 7 a.m. Monday, we felt we were looking for a body. There had been no reports to animal control or to the police of a small spaniel type dog being picked up.
Then Sedona’s Angel took her to the Gloucester Veterinary Hospital and told the staff she had found her, bathed her (digging under fences makes you dirty), but could not keep her.
They checked her microchip and called us. A simple lost dog found story—not quite.
Sedona had been bred the week before and probably is pregnant, and I admit she is very shy, so getting her to come could not have been easy.
The office was not sure of your name—maybe Jodie Lane? We looked the name up, but only saw two across the bridge and we know she could not have gotten that far.
We also want to thank animal control, the Gloucester-Mathews Humane Society, the radio station and police—all had to listen to me cry and never lost patience with me.
Because you, Angel, had put her in a harness, I know you have or have had dogs and I can only hope that someday we will meet and we can thank you in person, or if ever your dog runs away, he or she will have an angel watching over them.
If you read this, please contact the Gloucester Veterinary Hospital, 693-3030. They will give you our phone number so we can say "Thank You" properly.
Cindy and Larry Torgersen
