The Humane Society for Tacoma and Pierce County, in Tacoma, Wash., has recently helped facilitate two happy "tails," for guardians who lost their beloved canine friends.
On Oct. 30, the Humane Society announced the joyful reunion of an elderly Yorkshire terrier and her stunned guardian; the dog had disappeared from home two, very long, years before.
The facility shared the happy news about the phone call that informed the dog's owner of the miraculous find via Facebook:
“This is the Humane Society.
We have an elderly Yorkie here with a microchip that traces to
this num…. Hello? Ma’am…? Calm down… What? Two years?”
Yes, Lynne had lost her beloved little Yorkie two years ago, and
was stunned and overjoyed to be reunited with her after
all this time.
Good news apparently comes in twos at the Tacoma Humane Society; on Monday, another joyful reunion, between a little dog, lost for a year, and his grateful guardian.
The following Facebook page recounts the first moment of recognition:
Have you ever seen a dog do a double-take? Buggs hadn’t seen his owner for a whole year, and when Everett approached his kennel, Buggs actually looked right at him, then looked away, then suddenly spun back around with bulging eyes, blinked a few times, and just went crazy! It was quite a reunion!
The little guy had disappeared last fall, and his owners looked on our website every day for a long time, hoping to find him.
As the months went by, they looked less and less often, but they never stopped hoping. Then today, they checked again – just in case – and there he was!
