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.
