This is Lucy, who has been big news here in Canton, Ohio. I wanted to share her sweet story with you.

From our friends at CNN: When Aisha Nieves lost her dog in Allentown, Pennsyvania, she was devastated. She did the usual things you do when you lose a dog, but had no luck finding Kovu.
Turns out he was taken to the Lehigh County Humane Society and adopted out to another family. Two years later, the family was forced to return the dog when they faced eviction due to the COVID pandemic.
Good thing Aisha had never given up on having a dog in her home. Scrolling through the humane society’s webpage, she found her beloved Kovu and was able to reunite with him!
Another good reminder to microchip your pets.
Until next time,
Good day. and good dog!
