Reunited and it feels so good

Meet Pumpkin, the little dog who got lost in New Mexico and ended up in Georgia. 11Alive in Atlanta reports that compassionate people and a microchip were instrumental in the dog’s return to family.

Pumpkin had been wandering around Allatoona Landing Marina for weeks when Annette Hatt noticed him and took him home. She connected with Kathy Lee Russell on a lost animals page, and Kathy agreed to board Pumpkin and have him vetted. The good folks at Animal Hospital of Towne Lake found out that the 7-year old Lhasa Apso was not only healthy, but was also microchipped.

Meanwhile, back in New Mexico, Manny Ornelas had been searching for his dog for months after the pup had been stolen from his yard in November.

Georgia-based Ruff Redemption Rescue provided Pumpkin with a plane ride home, where a very happy and relieved family greeted him at the airport.

I just love a happy ending!

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

Way to go, K-9 Terry!
