FOUND!!

After a long weekend, lots of running, late hours and also worrying about Kali....calling vet clinics, radio stations, humane societies, placing ads in papers/shoppers....WE GOT LUCKY!! She was gone for almost a full week!! Although we did receive some calls from the ads we place...when we returned from camping, we found nothing, when we went out looking and calling for Kali.

We did speak with a very nice gal that lived in a small small town, about 8 miles from here. She said Kali was in their area for about 4 days. She played with the kids, went swimming, ate good and slept in the garage. We were happy to hear that. Courtney and I were out looking for her for over an hour, came home, told hubby and then he went out. While he was out, we received a phone call on my cell. There was a very nice gentleman on the phone and said he thinks he had our dog.....all THANKS to the Humane Society!
He had her since Thursday evening. He picked her up about 10 miles away from here and took her to home. He called the Humane Society and he said, if there was no response from the call he made...meaning if noone had called in a LOST dog, he said he was going to keep her. He said she is a very nice dog...I am so Thankful for him and taking care of her. ***Notice on the upper picture I put her TAG BACK ON AGAIN! I hope is stays there this time.

Thank you so much to all of you for your kind words, your prayers and your comments. They were all so appreciated!! We are just so HAPPY to have her HOME! and is Coco! He did not eat, the whole time she was gone...

So, we got through the long weekend of busy-ness and yesterday, while just starting out to the visitation and funeral, I was driving down my gravel road and all of a sudden I heard some crackle noise. I looked back and the passanger slider door (I have a Chrysler Town & Country van) it was cracked into about a million pieces!! I said, What the hell!! I was in shock. I called hubby, whom was at his second job and said he would come home to help...because I needed to get the glass knocked out and plastic and duct tape put on.

I had a bit over an hour to drive and on the Interstate. I told him, Jordan and I would get it done, to just stay put. So, we did get it all done.....but the only duct tape we had was colored!!! BRIGHT YELLOW and BRIGHT BLUE! I felt like a gomer driving it. I put criss-crosses up and down so that the pressure of driving down the Interstate would be lessened with the tape, so that the plastic would not get ripped off. It was a site, you should have seen it. Yes, I had to use both...I ran out of one and had to use the other! I did a nice job of taping, but driving that in the line up for the funeral and out to the graveside.....*sigh* It stayed on nicely and I bet it would be a daunting task to take it off...

We didn't make it to the wake/visitation, but we made it to the funeral just as it was starting. So, I have had enough going on lately to last me a month! The mobile glass unit is fixing my window, as I type this...Thank Goodness for 100% glass coverage and that I opted to pay for that on my insurance! Now we are off to get Courtney her shots to go into 7th grade, in just a bit over hour.

Tonight, I want to work on some handmades....I have not done that for quite a while! Today is a picture perfect day. I hope you are all having a beautiful day. Toodles for now...so sorry for the long post, but it has been a while. Toodles, ~Tonya

I am SO VERY happy that our prayers for Kali's return were answered. That is wonderful and she was so well taken care of along the way. What a wonderful story Tonya. You told it from both sides. Poor coco didn't eat. So see the boys pad isn't so great after all! LOL

Tonya, I'm so very glad Kali is home and that this is a "Happy Ending" kind of adventure! I know all of you (including Coco) must be so relieved and happy to have your Kali back. It's simply great.

And on top of that your car window smashing, you've really had quite a week, haven't you? Bury yourself in your creating, can't wait to see what you come up with after all the excitement at your house.

Take care~Diane

Tonya! That is just AWESOME News about your Kali Girl! I am doing the Happy Dance for you & your family. What a stinker she is, making you all worry so, when she was just out spreading her sunny smile to anyone she met & having sleep overs with new found friends! LOL! So happy that she is back home where she belongs. Hugs, Starla :)
