A longer time in dog years — fam­ily re­united with dog af­ter a nine-year sep­a­ra­tion

The China Post - - LIFE GUIDE POST -

A fam­ily in the south­east­ern U.S. state of Alabama drove to the south­west­ern state Colorado, a jour­ney of some 2,300 kilo­me­ters, to be re­united with their dog Boozer on Satur­day af­ter a 9-year sep­a­ra­tion.

Boozer, now 10, had gone miss­ing while the fam­ily was mov­ing from the state of Ten­nessee to Alabama.

KUSA-TV re­ports that a man who had owned Boozer, a boxer, re­cently moved to Den­ver and gave the dog to Foothills An­i­mal Shel­ter in Golden on Aug. 2. The man said he was un­able to take care of Boozer.

The shel­ter scanned Boozer’s mi­crochip and dis­cov­ered that he was reg­is­tered to Lloyd Gold­ston of Alabama.

Gold­ston says he kept an al­bum about Boozer and the dog was al­ways in their hearts. “We never for­got him,” he said. Gold­ston and his two chil­dren drove 18 hours to the an­i­mal shel­ter, where Gold­ston got teary-eyed when he got to spend time with Boozer again.

“He’s beau­ti­ful. Yes you are. Yes you are,” Gold­ston told his pet, giv­ing him a hug. “Hey Boozer! Welcome back, buddy.”

When Boozer went miss­ing, Gold­ston said he didn’t have time to look for him be­cause he was in the mid­dle of his move to another state.
