I had a great day off work yesterday. Progress made in one of my projects. I had the whole day to myself as Garry was at work. Then he phoned to let me know that he had been invited to go golfing after work. Seeing as it was the first time this year that he has had the chance, I'm really glad that he went. So I ended up having the whole evening to myself too!
Part way through the evening I got a phone call from a gentleman telling me that they have my dog. Rather puzzled me as I told him that I don't have a dog. He then wanted to know why my phone number would be on the dogs tag. Light bulbs went off and I said oh my...can you describe the dog and would there also be a name engraved on the tag of Sage. Sure enough there was...I asked him if he would have a back yard that he could safely hold her in until I could get a hold of either my son or daughter to come and get her. I told him that my son must have unexpectedly come to town and as the dog must have escaped from him, she would have no idea where she is. I would try to reach Q on his phone, but barring that my daughter would be there asap to get Sage. (I have no transportation as Garry is golfing).
I couldn't reach Q on his phone, so sent him a text message hoping that he would receive it. Called Kaeli and ask her to please go get Sage. What an exciting evening my evening turned out to be.
About 20 minutes later, Shyra, Kaeli and Sage showed up at the house. Sage was so excited to see her family. Quin in the meantime had called me in response to the text...."have dog, call me". Apparently he was planning a surprise visit home for the weekend to see everyone, stopped at his friend's place to drop him off. They decided that they would leave Sage in TJ's house and go and grab something to eat. Somehow Sage got out. I'm still waiting to hear that story today. She more than likely panicked being in a strange place without Quin. She is so attached to him and having spent the past few months up north in the bush, she wouldn't have a clue where to look for him. Quin arrived to pick her up and visit for a few minutes before having to head out again. He and Sage will be back here today to spend the weekend.
I am so thrilled to see the two of them. I'm sure that Afton is even more thrilled to see Quin.
Kind people found Sage and kept her safe until we could come and get her.
Surprise visit from Quin.
Looks like we might actually have a nice sunny day today.
3 more days left in my weekend.
Blessed with so much including a new day of life.
Have a great and wonderful day,
