DOG FOUND MISS­ING ROUND­WOOD DOG FOUND ON LEE­SON STREET, DUBLIN Three-legged Labrador Derry went on an in­cred­i­ble jour­ney

Bray People - - About Greystones - Mary FOG­A­RTY

IT WAS noth­ing short of an in­cred­i­ble jour­ney for three­legged Labrador ‘Derry’, who went miss­ing from his home in Round­wood dur­ing the re­cent snow, only to be found in Dublin City Cen­tre!

Thanks to a con­cerned Bray Peo­ple reader, who spot­ted Derry on the DSPCA web­site, Derry has been re­turned to his de­lighted own­ers. He ar­rived back in Round­wood on Wed­nes­day, which was also the day of the dog’s birth­day.

While his own­ers Gary Coo­ley, his wife So­nia and their son Matthew are enor­mously re­lieved to have their beloved pet back at home, it looks like the mys­tery of how he ended up on Lee­son Street will never be solved.

‘He’s not nor­mally al­lowed on the bed but he’s sit­ting up on the bed now,’ said Gary, adding that he doesn’t seem to have come to any harm on his big ad­ven­ture.

Derry man­aged to get out of the house and was last seen in the lo­cal shop in the vil­lage ear­lier in the month. The tenyear-old an­i­mal lost his leg when he got caught up in a fence sev­eral years ago.

‘If it wasn’t for the Bray Peo­ple and that reader we would never have found him,’ re­marked a de­lighted Gary.

Derry is safely back home in Round­wood.
