Lost sheep­dog safe after days in rugged con­di­tions

Pilbara News - - Opinion - John Jones, Kar­ratha

Can I bring to your at­ten­tion the story about my daugh­ter’s young sheltie who, in 2014, was ac­ci­den­tally let out of her yard in Kar­ratha by some con­trac­tors?

She, Candy, chose to wan­der Kar­ratha for four days and nights meet­ing and greet­ing peo­ple, cross­ing busy high­ways, sur­vived the heat, the wildlife and the traf­fic.

For­tu­nately. with the help of the

Pil­bara News, posters and social me­dia, Candy was found sev­eral kilo­me­tres from home.

This was a most stress­ful time for my daugh­ter Stacey and her hus­band but it cer­tainly was the alk of Kar­ratha.

It must be some­thing in the Pil­bara that at­tracts these beau­ti­ful crea­tures to ven­ture and sur­vive.
