Milo the dog is home!!!

Hooray! After we enlisted the help of the neighborhood where Milo was last seen, no less than five phone calls came in today when Milo went on his nightly run. After an hour of yelling (my throat is killing me), a neighbor called while she had him in her sights and we were able to corner him and bring him home. I cried happy tears and thanked her so much she probably thought I was a lunatic. I'm going to go back tomorrow with a thank you card and some candy as a gift.

I will finally be able to sleep tonight. My kid and my dog are both home safe and sound. And I am tired.

The office manager at my office got me a rosemary plant for luck today upon my return to work. I'm going to have to thank her too because it worked. :o)

Glad the pup and Sam are home safe. I don't know what type your boss is, but that Rosemary plant is awesome - you know Rosemary symbolizes remembrance... I have a rosemary bush in my garden too.

They also say that a rosemary bush will only thrive in the garden of a strong woman. If that's true, yours should grow like crazy.

I'm so glad you found your pup. I seriously wanted to come out and search for him- I figured it was the one thing I COULD do for you at the time.
