On Sunday, July 27, in the morning, my rescue puppy pulled the leash from my hand and ran down the hill from Mitchell College across Pequot Avenue and out of sight! I called my daughter for help, and my son-in-law contacted the police and animal control personnel. We began searching for her, calling her name, and were frantic about her safety.
At least 10 people, walkers, runners, bikers, and people in cars stopped what they were doing and helped us search for her. My son-in-law, who had been driving up and down Pequot Avenue, pulled his car into Mitchell College parking lot and there was Emma walking towards my car! Our family wants to recognize all of these strangers who are now friends to Emma and to our family.
