Monday morning the clinic in Fort Lupton was called. Fort Lupton is a long way away from where we live, perhaps 30-40 miles. The clinic was very helpful, her name was Baby, she was 3 years old and was an Australian Shepherd. She had just been in for her annual physical and she was up to date on her shots. Yes, there was a phone number.
Calling the phone number was exciting, the owners were thrilled to hear that their friend had been found. They had been in Aurora, Colorado, on Saturday visiting family when Baby had jumped out of the car at a gas station and took off after a rabbit. They had looked and looked for her but she had disappeared. They promised they would be right up to claim her and take her home after her wonderful adventure.
We are very happy that she survived the heavy traffic on the streets and the coyotes in the park. She is a very nice guest and she is happy to be going home to her family. She did pick up a slight limp on the way, perhaps she has a thorn in her paw, but other than a day and night of being wet and cold, she is in good condition. One more rescue, one more memory to add to our diary.
