Here’s a story that is just going to blow your mind.
We had it this morning. It is so amazing. And if you’ve ever had a pet runaway, this will give you hope.
2 years ago, October of 2012 Nathan and Erin Braun went camping in the Tahoe National Forest and of course they took along their 5 year old golden retriever Murphy. And of course Murphy ran off. They looked all over for her. They posted fliers, they drove everywhere but went home without Murphy.
A week or so ago, 20 months later, someone must have seen one of the fliers. One must have still been posted somewhere and sure enough Murphy was spotted at another campsite a few miles away. They called the Brauns.
So Nathan and Erin jumped in their car and left Murphy’s blanket on the ground, thinking she might be able to smell it. She did. The very first night, Murphy showed up, and went to sleep on the blanket. A few days later someone was able to leash her. Sunday Murphy was back at home. No one is sure how she survived 20 months in the wild…including two winters…but she did.
Is this not amazing? Gives me the “goosies”. Also makes me very happy!!
So next time your dog runs away…remember this one…There’s always hope!!!
