A big thank-you to driver who saved tiny dogs

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

ONE re­cent morn­ing, one of my lit­tle Shih Tzu dogs got loose. As I started to look for him and close my back gate, my other Shih Tzu ran away. I was close to tears as the dogs ran down Kee­watin Street to­wards Inkster Boule­vard, where all the busy traf­fic was. I tried to get them to come back, with no luck. I went back to my house to get leashes, and when I got back the dogs were gone. By then I was fran­tic, fear­ing the worst would hap­pen and they would get hit by a car. Then my cell­phone rang. The caller was a United Mes­sen­ger de­liv­ery driver who had picked my dogs up as they were run­ning across Kee­watin. I am so grate­ful for the won­der­ful thing this man did for my fam­ily by call­ing the num­ber on their dog tags. Good deeds of­ten go un­no­ticed. It seems all we ever hear about are the bad things peo­ple do, never the good. This very nice man should be given his day of praise. He is a hero and a true gen­tle­man in my book. Oreo and Nixon are now rest­ing com­fort­ably on their favourite chair after their ad­ven­ture down Kee­watin, and I can re­lax with my furry friends peace­fully, know­ing Win­nipeg has been blessed with one very spe­cial de­liv­ery driver with a kind heart.
