Dog remains missing after a switch at the groomers


This is an awful story. Gloria went to the groomers to drop off her dog at the local groomers. At the end of the day, she picked up her dog, but something didn’t feel right. Her other dogs at home reacted badly to Lucy. She wasn’t playing with her toys, or eating her favorite treats.

What she came to realize: it wasn’t Lucy.

The groomers had switched the identical looking dogs to different owners. The worst part, the other owners lost Lucy.

Here is the news story my colleague did:

LINCOLN, Neb. — It took about an hour for Gloria Montgomery and her family to realize the dog they brought home from the groomer’s wasn’t theirs.

It began as routine trip to the Suds N’ Scissors Tuesday, when Montgomery was told her dog – Lucy – would be ready for pick-up in about four hours.

But, not too long after, the store called saying Lucy was ready. After they brought her home, Lucy wasn’t playing with her favorite toys or eating her go-to treat, and that’s when Montgomery figured it out.

Unfortunately, the people that took Lucy home let her outside during Tuesday’s snow storm – thinking it was their own.

Both dogs were the same breed and looked almost identical.

Now, no one can find Lucy.

“I’m sure she’s scared to death right now,” Montgomery said.

The folks that took Lucy home live near 148th and Fletcher, where search parties have spent the last day looking for her. The family that took Lucy home is helping to find the dog, as well as the owner of Suds N’ Scissors – Deb Noonan.

But, there’s a lot of open farm land to cover.

“We went out in the blizzard for three or four hours,” Noonan said, “to try and bring her home.”

Noonan said this is her life’s work, and is a job she takes very personally.

“I don’t want anything to happen to [Lucy],” Noonan said, “I’d like to bring her home.”

Noonan said a mix-up like this simply never happens. But, regardless, many are hoping for a safe recovery.

“The weather has me worried,” Montgomery said, “and it’s supposed to get so cold tonight, and it was so cold last night. And, she’s not used to the cold.”

Bruce Needs a Home

1474769_10151762800321423_2008203051_nAre you looking for a cuddle buddy? Bruce came into the news station (where I work) and surprised us with his Santa outfit, but most of all he was just DARLING! He was just so calm and eager to see what they hype was about, why there were people crowding him and looking silly–it’s only because he’s dog-diggity cute!

Here is his information and where you can adopt him:

Bruce is a 2 year old, neutered male, Chihuahua.

Bruce is bashful and needs a family who will be patient and kind to him. He is shy around other dogs so they should meet prior to adoption. Once he knows he is among friends, he is silly and sweet and oh so cute.

In The Heart of Fullerton

The sun’s rays were blistering.

My already dry skin could not bear any more.

In the heart of Fullerton, there I lay under the water pipe.

drip. drip. drip.

Each drop of water soothed my skin.

I continued to lay while watching the other dogs play.

Wasn’t long until my master felt the same heat.

She took me home.

and boy oh boy…were we beat.

Puppy Buried

Updated news.

A puppy was found in a grave in Florida. Now, he has been adopted by a technician at the veterinary clinic where police officers took the one-week-old pup for emergency care.
This all happened when police were going to destroy evidence in an abandoned pit, when they heard the cooes and cries of the pup.

After tender love and care, the puppy has been well taken care of and named–Tucker.

Authorities think that Tucker was buried for less than an hour, where they pushed the puppy head first into the ground leaving some breathing room for him.

Dog days are never over. Even in the summer.

Despite the heat waves and hot rays, they still manage to put a smile on…and transfer it on to mine.
