News from my hometown of Cincinnati: A Rumpke Waste & Recycling driver is a hero after saving a puppy Wednesday morning in Colerain Township just outside Cincinnati.
Rumpke Driver Aaron Kinsel was servicing customers when he noticed a discarded backpack along the roadway. After additional observation, he noticed the bag was moving, so he got out of the truck to investigate. Inside the bag he found a distraught 10-week old puppy.
From the good folks at Stewardship Report: When Sergeant E. found a neglected dog on her Army base, she began including the dog on her morning runs and feeding him. They formed a bond, as one does with an animal, particularly when one is stationed overseas.
The problem arose when Sgt. E. was shipped home unexpectedly, unable to bring with her the dog she had named Meeka. Devastated, the dog went into hiding. Fortunately, her fellow soldiers were able to entice the dog out of hiding and put him in a pen for safekeeping until Sgt. E. could find a way to bring Meeka to the States.
