Bandit went home...

... and her real name is Ginger.

On Friday afternoon, someone saw this picture on the door of a veterinarian's office and thought it looked like her neighbor's lost dog.

Within half an hour, Rose and her son were at our house to get their dog, Ginger. Cocoa and Ginger had gone roaming, so Rose told her son to whistle. Marley said Ginger came flying through the neighbor's back yard and leaped ecstatically on her owners. That was one happy dog! And her owners were delighted to find her. She'd been missing for three weeks and they'd despaired of finding her again. She was far from home - we live 15 miles from her owners, and they think a neighbor that didn't like the dog took her and abandoned her in our town.

Isn't that sad?

But we have a happy ending! Happy Ginger to have her family back, happy Rose to have her dog back, and happy us to have one less pet and to see Rose and Ginger reunited!

That's wonderful! Though a little sad for your family, too. I'm glad she's back where she belongs.

I am so glad Ginger found her way home. Three weeks would make her owners think she would never come home. What a nice story!

Reunited at last - good work in keeping her and posting at the vet.

Yes, you may print any of my photos; and thank you for asking and making me feel like a real photog. ;-)

Hi Laura, I arrived at your blog via clicking on my own profile on one of my favourite books, The Hawk and the Dove. Hardly anyone I know has ever heard of it, but it I read it once or twice a year - and I seldom re-read a book.
I also like to knit and spin. Kinda neat, I thought.

Wow - it's a good thing y'all took care of that dog! The owners would never have seen her again.

Mom made a good post on some books she read recently on
