On Saturday I saw a beautiful husky at Chicago Animal Care and Control posted to our #MicrochipHuntersIL page and as a lover of the northern breeds, I knew I had to take the case. (Jeannette jinxed it by saying it should be easy) My research came up with two pages of dead-end phone numbers and email addresses – but a relative’s name kept popping up, and I was able to find him on Facebook. Fingers crossed that they would see my message request!
Two days later and zero luck in reaching any of Rocky’s family, we were getting ready to go to a Christmas Eve get-together with our family when I received notification of a Facebook message. It was Rocky’s extended family contacting me! From Wisconsin!
I immediately called and was told “Thank you! Thank you! Everyone is so happy! Everyone is crying! Hang on… let me put Rosario on the line”!!! Rocky’s mom was in Wisconsin for their family Christmas – she was so relieved to know that Rocky was found and safe. She said it was the best present ever. And I have to admit, I felt like I’d been given a very special present too. It felt so good to be able to share the wonderful news that their beloved Rocky was safe. And so appropriate that it was Christmas Eve!
As soon as his family returned to Chicago they were there to pick up their Rocky – who was so very excited to see them! Welcome Home Rocky! And a Merry Christmas to all!
