I was en route to work with my mom when I saw a small dog get in the middle of a very busy intersection. I made her stop and I jumped out of the car and tried my best to coral the dog to the other side of the road. After walking with the dog and leading it to a safe bend in a neighbors fence, I walked up the door asking if anyone knew the dog or if it was theirs (it was cowering near the woman's fence). 

When a woman answered the door I asked if she knew the dog and her face lit up. She told me that the dog had been missing for a day and she was worried sick about it.

When I explained that it was trying to cross the street to come home, she was amazed that the dog had made it. 

I told her how happy I was that the dog was returned and that I needed to go to work, but to have a great day. 


Just wanted to share!

That is really super Carrilyn.  That may seem a small act to you, but I'm sure it was a very large act for that family.

Carrilyn, I am an animal lover and always love to hear when someone does something nice for an animal.  Thank you so much.  I know just how that woman feels.  Our pets are part of our family.  Thank you so much for saving that dog's life.  You're an angel!
