After a week on the run, and several sightings and close calls with traffic, Misty has been found. At first I heard that it was late last night by a driver who saw her running along the highway, stopped, called her and she came to the woman. Later that was updated and it looks like she was actually found by someone walking the dikes pretty close to the airport where she went missing - a woman who saw the posters last night walked the dikes again this morning, saw a black speck in the distance, knew it was Misty, called Misty’s name and she came running.
Either way, instead of bolting this time, Misty made the decision to trust and came when she was called. Jim is on his way to pick her up - and what a happy reunion that will be.
I have tears of joy on my face today. Would that every lost dog could have such a happy ending. May the good samaritan who took the time to either stop their vehicle and coax a scared, lost dog to safety, or who took the time to read the posters, call her name and bring her to safety.... may that good samaritan be blessed a thousand fold. You are truly one of the gems of this world.
