Happy Endings

I like a good happy ending and I think Paris does as well.  My husband found her owner and we heard the tale of the dog's getaway.  Shortly after she was let out on Friday night to do her business, someone let off fireworks in the neighborhood that spooked the dog.  She took off and was lost for close to an hour before I found her being dumped by someone who'd found her before me.  Maybe they thought she'd find her own way home.  Duh.

She was reunited with her owner today and there were tears and much tail wagging.  Paris didn't so much as say goodbye.  Her owner offered me a reward.  I told her getting the dog a new tag and a microchip would be reward enough.  I hope she does this.

Once again I'm dog-less, but that little thing wasn't really a D.O.G. now, was she?

All's well that ends well?

Rudee said...

I think so, Debra. I believe the dog was depressed in a strange home. She was a very good houseguest though. I wish the humans who visit were as tidy as her.

I do like a happy ending. Just hope they do as you suggested and get her chipped and a new collar and tag.

Good for you Rudee, to take such lovely care of Ms. Paris. Let's all picture her in good grace living a long happy life.

Rose said...

That's probably the best thing then. Hope you're okay with it.

Happy endings are good. When you finally get a dog again though, it will be a "real" dog...ciao

I'm glad to here this! Just a qucik not regarding you dog preferences. I was always a big (or at least medium) dog guy myself, but one day I end up with a small dog (pugalier) by accident, and I'm surprised at how he's become my favourite dog.

I was wondering why a pure bred dog would get dumped. I know they cost a few hundred anyway. I think I would still ask the owners for permission to have one if you find another one. In the mean time go rent some dog movies. I saw "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" a few months ago and it was kinda cute because of all the bling this little dog had and then had to roam the mean streets with the rest of the mutts. I am a sucker for a dog movie. And a dog story. Yours was bitter sweet. Sweet while it lasted, but I guess it wasn't meant to be.

So glad things turned out good. You got good Karma, Rudee, you will get the perfect dog, when you get your doggie. Blessings

Aww, I love, love happy endings! And if there was a lot of tail wagging, you know little Paris was happy to be with her humans.

Huggies, Rudee!

I do love happy endings. You do good deeds.

Stephanie V said...

That was kind of a breathless adventure. Short and sweet - while it lasted. No more skulking about like a criminal, OK?

Lisa L said...

A small D.O.G. is known as "A rat on a Rope".

Miss T said...

Yay Paris!!!

Joanna said...

Fireworks are so dangerous to dogs. Paris was lucky that you were there when she needed you.

There's no place like Home, Sweet Home... no matter how great the visit.

(Loved "today's quote" because its so true. (the one about a bikini and a loaded pistal.))

laurie said...

oh, fireworks!!!!! every night a neighbor sets them off, and every night riley ends up cowering behind the bathroom door.

Kathleen said...

Perhaps you were paid a visit by DOG spelled backwards. At least I like to think so.

I'm sad you didn't keep her; but I guess she's happy now with her old owners. If you want a dog.. I have an extra Collie... OR TWO
