beagle rescue, part 2

when we left off, vito was busy annoying our house guest, an old beagle...

we started getting ready to go to sleep and vito jumped up on the bed. fred waddled over to vito's bed on the floor, and both passed out in minutes. easter morning rolls around and everyone gets up early (what is it with dogs getting up at the crack of dawn??) bfff takes the crazy puppy for a romp at the park and i took fred for a short walk. he was so excited for that walk, his tail & butt wagging like crazy...by the end, he kept looking up at me like "seriously, is this ever going to end?"

just making himself at home...

animal control called me back and said we could bring fred in and they would scan him for a microchip. i asked some questions, like what would happen to him if he didn't have a chip, if they couldn't find his owners, etc. we packed him up and headed to the shelter. they scanned him and about two seconds later, they found the microchip and had his owner on the phone!!

she came immediately to pick him up and was in tears when she saw him....which made me tear up too. she said his name was cody & she was so relieved and thankful he was safe. we told her he got a bath & ate well & was a wonderful little house guest. she was really sweet and we were so glad he went home with his mommy.

yay for happy endings! we figured that if our dog was ever lost, we would hope that someone would be kind enough to take care of him.

but wait! the story isn't over....

I'm so glad he had a microchip! Fred/Cody was so lucky he came across you and you took such good care of him.

And there's more to this story? Can't wait to hear it!
