Stories of lost dogs #5 Holly

Of course there are the more humorous renditions of this lost and found story, including that of Holly, so named because she was adopted over Christmas. One spring day, while her family was doing yard work, Holly, a friendly black lab, set out to roam the wooded acres behind her house, which had become one of her favorite pastimes over the past five years. While she was at the edge of the property, a man drove by in a pickup truck, and, assuming she had wandered from home, picked Holly up and put her in his car with the intention of either rescuing her, or returning her to her owners.

“It was almost closing time at the dump, and he wanted to get there on time, so he just took her for the ride,” recalls Kim, Holly’s owner.

Once he got there and inspected her collar, however, he realized that the address on her tags was in fact the location where he had picked her up. Both Holly and her chauffeur returned with their tails between their legs later that day.

This next story might not do much to strengthen your trust in strangers, but it will prove that no matter how much time has passed, it’s still possible to recover your pup. On a balmy afternoon in West Austin, Texas, three-year old Marie was out on the porch holding her brand-new, poodle puppy Frenchie. Her mother, who was careful to show Marie how to handle the pup, had stepped inside for no more than two minutes, when she heard Marie crying, ran out, and listened as her daughter told her that a strange man had ran up to the porch, plucked Frenchie right out of her hands, and drove away with pup inside. The story seemed nearly impossible.

Nevertheless, the family searched for Frenchie for weeks, finally conceding that the pup was gone. Then, two years later, Marie’s Godmother was driving past a house in the next neighborhood over, when she spotted a poodle tied up to a tree. Trusting her instincts, she untied the dog, and took him back to Marie who knew instantly that it was Frenchie. Later that day, the vet confirmed it was in fact her long-lost pup.

Another pup, an Australian Cattle Dog named Sophie , went on a death-defying odyssey of her own, one that took her from the shark-infested waters off the coast of Queensland, Australia, to a remote island where she survived for four months by hunting goats and evading predators. How did she get here, you ask? Sophie was enjoying a day out on the boat with her family, when she fell overboard into choppy waters and disappeared.

Her owners spent the rest of the day searching for her, but eventually came to believe that the wake of the boat had overpowered their pup. Turns out that Sophie was quite a prodigious swimmer in fact, and had paddled five miles to St. Bee’s Island. Nearly half a year later, local rangers captured her, and she was reunited with her family who had reached out to the rangers after hearing the story in the news. And so concludes the best episode of Survivor ever.
