ellie is home!

oh JOY!
my sweet friends,
she has returned!
we are so happy and relieved.
the not knowing was tearing us apart,
and we will probably never really know the details of her adventure. there remains some unanswered questions, but
all that matters is that this sweet 8 year old dog has found her way back to us.
i have been overwhelmed with your concern and prayers for her safety.
thank you so very much.
this internet is a powerful thing indeed and i am deeply touched.
at this time of year, when the most special holiday is here, i am filled with HOPE and FAITH from your outpouring for this doggie.
my heart is light now.
what a wonderful christmas present.
thank you.

I had a good feeling that she would make her way back.
Everyone's good thoughts and prayers ... plus I put Saint Francis on it! :)

Blessings to you my friend and Ellie too!

I feel for you since my pups went missing for a day during a huge rain storm a few weeks back but finally were found by an unknown neighbor several blocks away (on the edge of the wilderness!). A huge blessing! Makes you appreciate them even more!

I'm soooo glad! I hated to see anyone with a beloved pet missing. Or a neighbor for that matter.
