Update - Schnauzer Reunited With Family!!

Howie and Pearl and all our puggy pals are celebrating today because the little Schnauzer I rescued yesterday went home to his family last night. One of our neighbors alerted one of their neighbors, and so on, until the family who was at church on Easter Sunday got home and called us to let us know their baby was sorely missed!

In all the excitement, I never got the name of the Schnauzer, so we shall call him Charlie because he was so quiet and unassuming. Charlie ate a big bowl of Merrick's venison stew while he was visiting. He demonstrated such gusto eating his stew, that I suspected Charlie was on a diet. Sure enough, Charlie's mom confirmed that he is quite the little piggy and will eat just about anything if you let him. *wonder to self, perhaps Charlie the Schnauzer is PART PUG???*

Charlie's mama was almost crying on the phone, she was so happy to hear we had him safe and sound. She and her family came over and picked him up pronto when they got home from church. They were not sure how he got out of the fence, and were going to check for holes immediately. We've had so much wind this week, perhaps a new hole had formed and Charlie made his escape to the house down the street that served Venison Stew.

We are so glad he is home. So many angels are hovering about Norwich Street this week. And for that, we are thankful.

Thank goodness Howie's trip was short and sweet, and thank goodness Charlie was returned to his home as well. With spring upon us, maybe we all ought to check our gates and fences for little holes that these escape artists can fit into. I know when Lucky went for a walk two weeks ago mom freaked. No one should have to be that worried about their baby.

Hi,

Glad to hear Charlie is back with his family. Yesterday we went to Easter lunch with my nephew's inlaws and I met his brother inlaw's girl friend, soon to be wife. Her name is Danny and she is with pug rescue here in Houston. Finally someone in the family I can talk dogs with. Mona & I will be working the Deer Park Pet Fair this weekend and she said her rescue group would be there. Do you know any of the pug rescuers here in Houston?

Hope you had a great Easter. We did.

Love Sarah & Mona
