The Great Rescue!

Grayson's beloved doggy slipped from his hands while walking along the bridge above a fast-flowing creek. You could hear his broken heart as he screamed for his doggy being swept away in the stream.

rescue!


We ran along the creek to see if we could find a low place to grab it. Next thing I knew, Lovelyn had her jeans rolled up and was in the water.

Doggy floated by and she scooped him up, rung him out, and saved the day!

Bystanders cheered. We all sighed in relief. And went on our way.

  4. As a mother of 2 who both have "loveys" all I can say is that she is a HERO!

    (at first I thought you were talking a bout a REAL dog...it's early and no coffee yet)

  16. I shouldn't giggle, but I could envision the entire scene in my head. How wonderful Lovelyn was brave enough to battle the ferocious rapids WHILE WEARING HER BABY to save a lonely, little doggie. AND, I can just envision, the loving reunion between Grayson and doggie. And you know what? The experience is amazing when shared with a good friend too, no?

    Oh, and P.S. - Lovelyn is BEAUTIFUL! Both on the inside and out!

  21. Maybe it is the hormones or maybe lack of sleep or maybe because I can feel the heartbreak in your sons cries and the joy and happiness of the rescue BUT this made me cry!!! Thanks to good friends!

  37. Now that's just lovely - don't we all need someone like that shadowing our lives! One of us once let a beloved kits go and it was whisked away by the wind, over the ocean and beyond site and the manly acceptance that that's life, from one so short, just about killed me!

  38. okay, these have been really fun to read! but, i do have to say that RandomBlonde is totally right...i've wanted to do a post saying how much FAIL is in my everyday, too! kinda busy right now....but that is coming. for now:
    i did not get dressed today...AND i went into public.

    i took the stress of making last minute arrangements out on my sweet husband that was totally trying to help.

    and i let my 2 year old watch THREE dora's in a row while i made arrangements for uganda!!

    =)

  41. What an awesome friend! Only another mother understands what it would have been like if the doggy hadn't been retrieved!

    ReplyDelete
  42. What a heroine!

    I think of another heroine, one who let a small boy spit hot dog into her cupped palms...

    ReplyDelete
  43. Awww, that's nice. Good rescue story!

    ReplyDelete
  44. What a great friend! My son has just fallen in love with a little puppy I bought him at Walgreens for about $2 or something - he calls him 'new puppy' and wakes up from naps crying for him. :)

    ReplyDelete
