A big thank-you to driver who saved tiny dogs
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.
