If you find a bag of money in the street, would you turn it in? If you found a stray coat stuffed with jewels, would try to find its owner? If you came across the dog of your dreams (that is to say, that if you were a dog lover), without tags, and their presence fit right into your family, would you keep it?
I do believe that Heaven gives mighty props for honest people that return bags of money, jewels and dogs of their dreams.
My girl is back, and she was brought back to me by a dog-loving human who approached her, noticing that she did not, in fact, look like a stray. "And," he had said, "Boxers are the dog of my dreams."
Her collar had fallen by the time he brought her to his home, and he intended to bring her to the shelter later on this week. And although Sugar had immediately made herself comfortable in her his home, he still emailed me after he saw one of my flyers.
When I picked her up, I noticed that it was even bittersweet for this man; he kept crouching to say goodbye to her; it was obvious he had bonded with my pup.
How could he have resisted? This dog is special, in my opinion anyway.
But last night I slipped in a little prayer that he gets those props for bringing my Sugar back to me.
