Well, I knew from the moment I saw him, that he was someone’s very well-loved dog. He was too clean, too well-mannered, and just too loveable not to be missed. It turns out that my new friend’s real name is Romeo and his owner has spent a couple sleepless nights praying he was okay. I got a call from the neighborhood pet hotline that they knew who the dog belonged to and gave me the lady’s number. I called her up and simply said happily as she answered, “I have Romeo!!”
“Oh my god… thank you, thank you. I am sooo happy. I will be right over,” she went on and on – her voice breaking with the happiness of knowing her beloved Romeo was fine and coming home.
I gave her directions to the house and headed to the driveway to meet her. I also called Mindy to run out fast and get a picture of me with Romeo before he headed home. We had a fun couple days and anytime he wants to come back he is welcome.
Romeo jumped right into the passenger seat as she opened the door, jumped out, and gave me a huge hug. She told me that she was grateful that he was found by a dog lover and said she prayed each night that if she lost him forever, he would be picked up by someone who would give him a good home. Lou and I were invited to come visit him anytime and I told her that we would definitely take her up on the invitation. It was sad to see him go, but not as sad as the constant thoughts of how upset I would be if Lou were missing overnight for two days. I was overjoyed to reunite them and see the strength of their bond.
A little bittersweet, but a very happy ending.
cdogg, I can’t tell you enough how thankful I am for you and your neighbor. I am the “momma” to your Thanksgiving guest, Romeo. You and your show have made him a star. Everything you said on your show, about Romeo, is true. He was Heaven sent….as well as you were. I suppose you were suppose to be home, sorry it took a broken pipe, so Romeo and I will be forever grateful. Always your friends, Romeo & Misskitty (Dj)
Thanks… and I still want to take you up on that doggie play date!
What can I say Chris. This is the 8th November since the Journey lol began. And AGAIN….there is no human word to describe my thankfulness. You’re a good good person, man, and friend. Keep spinnin Chris. Always you friends, Romeo and Dj.
