A heroic ef­fort brings lit­tle Bax­ter home

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

TO Cam, the awe­some young man who found our lost dog on a re­cent week­end, thank you.

Lit­tle Bax­ter got out of our cabin at Grand Beach on the Satur­day. Sev­eral of my won­der­ful neigh­bours and I spent the evening look­ing for him, post­ing on a miss­ing dog web­site, putting up posters, call­ing Con­ser­va­tion and RCMP of­fices.

Much to our sur­prise, my hus­band (who was trav­el­ling in Cal­gary) got a phone call at 2:30 a.m. that same night to in­form him that Bax­ter had been found wan­der­ing the streets of Lin­den Woods.

How he got to Win­nipeg from Grand Beach in three hours is a mys­tery to us.

Lucky for us, Cam had spot­ted him on the streets and was con­cerned when he saw him al­most get hit by cars. Cam was able to get Bax­ter safely into his ve­hi­cle and when he saw the tags on his col­lar, phoned the num­ber to say he had found our lit­tle dog.

He then made ar­range­ments to meet me and re­turn Bax­ter at 4 a.m.!

Thank you Cam, for look­ing af­ter our dog and for the kind­ness you showed while he was in your care.

Thank you to Krystyna and Lori, my won­der­ful, car­ing Grand Beach neigh­bours who spent three hours with me in the search.

Thank you to the won­der­ful, car­ing peo­ple who re­sponded to the miss­ing dog web­site and to all my amaz­ing Grand Beach neigh­bours who cared and wor­ried about Bax­ter.

There is a spe­cial place in heaven for you all.
