How kind­ness got Cop­per home

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE SOCIAL PAGE -

My 13 year-old dog, Cop­per, took a stroll out­side the yard and down the back lane. He some­how ended up on Acad­emy Road.

Sev­eral kind peo­ple along his jour­ney tried to iden­tify him and help by get­ting Win­nipeg Lost Dogs (Face­book page), the Hu­mane So­ci­ety and Win­nipeg an­i­mal ser­vices in­volved.

Once they had iden­ti­fied Cop­per, I be­gan re­ceiv­ing phone calls from an ar­ray of peo­ple giv­ing me lo­ca­tion up­dates on where I might find my poor, old boy. Then they helped look for him.

The staff per­son at Perth’s on Acad­emy in par­tic­u­lar along with their busi­ness neigh­bors tried to help him by let­ting him in their es­tab­lish­ment. Had it not been for them, or that awe­some Face­book page, or other neigh­bors call­ing the pound, I don’t know what could have hap­pened to Cop­per, our fam­ily pet for 13 years.

I am so grate­ful to them all for tak­ing the time out of their lives to help an old dog find his way home. I can’t ex­press how im­por­tant their ac­tions were to me.

There is a kind­ness in peo­ple that we some­times for­get.

Thank you to all who helped Cop­per get home — and kept an­other old dog happy.
