Lost dog

On Sunday Little J and I took the dogs for a hike on our favorite trails.

As we started walking we bumped into a lady that told us there is a lost dog on the trails and we might want to keep a look out for it. A little chihuahua named Levi.

A few minutes later we ran into the owners looking for their lost dog. I took his phone number and promised we will look for it as we hike.

An hour into our hike we ran into a mountain biker looking for the dog. He said his friend went home to get help from his family and that they are eager to find Levi before dusk cause he is little and might not make it in the wild overnight.

Not long after we met a couple who has been hiking the same trail and looking for the lost dog. I love how our little community pulls together in times like these. We exchanged information about the trails we have covered and we voiced our concerns about coyotes and eagles that call these trails home. In reality this little chihuahua was likely early breakfast for the owl that Little J and I often spot on our walks.

Little J and I then talked about nature, animals and life.

Towards the end of the hike we caught up with the family of the lost dog who after 10 hours haven’t lost hope and were going back out again.

Little J looked the poor lady straight in the eyes and said: I think Levi was taken by an eagle. That’s life, my mom said. At least you still have the other two chihuahuas but it is close to dinner time you know…

      We went back on Monday and they put up posters with a $1000 reward. Hopefully if anyone found him lost in the trails and picked him up this will help spread the word to them.

    I wish we could keep that carefree, honest attitude. The kid is probably right.
    Sad … but True. I would have cried my eyes out)))

    Out of the mouth of babes. That poor lady – if she is anything like my MIL who has three chihuahuas – I imagine she didn’t take that news well. While I feel bad for her and her pooch, I can’t help but smile…

    Sometimes in situations like that, I find myself rushing to say something to change the subject or at least distract my kids so they won’t say the inevitable thing I just know they’re about to say :)

    OH NO! I do love how honest children are, but there are times it’s a little *inconvenient*, however right they might be! Love him.

    I saw a post on the 3 Sisters Cattle Co. Facebook that Levi has be reunited with his family. Happy ending for the family, and empty stomach for the eagle!
