Photo: Tess and Pooh (Annie)after being reunited at the Wandermere Animal Hospital, Friday morning August 8th.
My name is Tess and I am the friend Pooh (Annie) has lived with the whole 15 years of her life. She is a faithful, happy, loving friend who I have been missing since Monday. I have been searching for her every day with the help of my friend Kim. I had flyers out, but I missed the Wandermere Animal Hospital. I now know it is there. I was going door-to-door with flyers when the Krem 2 story aired. I was invited into one of the houses I went to and they told me they had just seen my Pooh on the news! I cannot even describe what I felt when I heard that. I drove to the Wandermere Animal Hospital immediately, but I arrived after 6:00 p.m. I had to wait until the next morning to bring my baby home. I was unable to watch the story on the internet because I needed to update my flashplayer. That website was down. My friend Kim tried playing it for me over the phone. Another friend, Donna, told me the lady who had rescued my baby had taken her home. I was devastated. I did not know when I would see her again. The wait was long and painful, as I know hers was too. We are very close. She is always at my side. There has been such a void since she has been gone. I owe so much to all who helped my baby. There is no way to thank everyone enough. That void in my heart has been filled again. I truly believe in the power of prayer. I have been praying for God to please lead me to Pooh. My prayer was answered when some wonderful people saw the story on Krem 2.
As a result of this experience, my friend Kim and I are going to start a website for lost and found animals. We need a place that links everything together and makes it easier to find lost friends. Also as a result of this experience, Pooh will be getting a chip. She is forever losing her tags...
I am attaching a few pictures (I could fill pages and pages...). Please feel free to use any or all on your blog. And thank you so much for your part in bringing my baby home.
