Stories of Kindness from Around the World

A Tail Waggin Way Of A Blessing

--by justinbieber, posted Dec 3, 2011

Last week, I was out getting the mail and noticed a dog crossing the street that looked oddly familiar. I went near the dog to see if it had a tag or if I recognized it to see if I could find the owner.

When I got close to the dog, I realized that it was the same dog that my neighbors had lost 4 years ago.

A few months ago, these neighbors moved out of my neighborhood, but that was not going to stop me finding them!

I remebered they moved to Minnesota. I spent the rest of the day searching all of the people with their last name in the Minnesota area.  Finally when I was starting to give up hope, I called the last number.  I couldn't' believe it, it was them!  

I told them of how I found their dog that went missing 4 years ago.  They thought it was too good to come true.  They immediately flew down to Florida to re-unite with their dog, and were absolutely shocked.

They told me God has answered their prayers and offered me a fairly large reward.  Even though I really needed the money. I said no.  

Seeing the happy faces of them with their dog was as rewarding as it could get.!

I feel that you are one who would have found it a good forever home had that been the case, but to recognize a neighbor's pet of 4 years ago is amazing and your dedication in finding the owners. Exceptional! I dearly love dogs and have helped many over the years. So your story truly touches my heart. Love and peace, happydae'
