This morning started out just like any other morning. The alarm clock went off at 6, we pressed snooze, and then waited for Henry. Every morning after the alarm clock goes off Henry gets out of his bed and comes over to wake us up. He does this by first coming over to my side of the bed and giving me a quick lick on the face. Once he is sure I am about to get out of bed he runs over to Taylor’s side and does the same thing. He will go back and forth until we finally get out of bed. We secretly love this, but also miss the days of a 15 minute snooze.
It’s hard to resist this face…..even at 6am.
Anyway, just like every other morning we took Henry up to the Farm with us for his morning walk/run. He loves to run around the Farm. He gets to run freely around 60 acres of open space. However, this morning he was acting funny around a certain area of the farm. We have had a lot of coyotes recently and I think he ran off toward their scent. Sometimes he runs off, but he always comes back. Today, however, he did not come right back. After about 10 minutes we began to worry. We kept calling him, but he was nowhere to be found. Panic rose, and we knew something was terribly wrong. Taylor called the local police to let them know our dog was missing. And at that point we decided to split up. He was going to stay put, and I was going to grab the truck and drive way up to the road. And two awful hours later, the police called us to let us know Henry had been found. I was SO happy I cried. We have only had Henry for 7 weeks now, but we love him. He is a great dog and today was awful. Losing him for 2 hours was heartbreaking.
We are all home safe and sound tonight. Thanks to a total stranger he is back. We love Henry!
