Lost and then Found

Last week we had a fun visitor in our office:

brown chihuahua with blue collar

Unfortunately, the reason for his visit wasn’t so fun. One of our employees found him running in the middle of the road outside our building. Dave went and picked up the dog (who was very friendly) and brought him inside. The dog wasn’t dirty so he obviously wasn’t outside for very long (the weather was been cold, snowy and slushy so I’m amazed he wasn’t dirty!). The dog had a collar but no ID information.

We made some signs and posted them throughout the neighborhood. We also posted to some Lost/Found boards online. I won’t lie, we really liked having this visitor in the office. He had such a sweet demeanor and loved to sit in laps.

But thankfully we found the owner! While Dave was out hanging up signs at nearby businesses, a gentleman came up to him and said “that’s my dog!” The gentleman was able to describe the dog’s color (we were hanging up a black and white photo), the dog’s collar color and showed Dave numerous photos on his phone of his children and the dog. It was a match!

So although it was sad to see Chocolate (yep, we learned his name!) leave, it was nice to reunite him with his owner.

We didn’t get to see any mischief out of Chocolate when he visited us, but his owner told us he just loved to get into trouble :) For that reason, we are linking up with Monday Mischief.
