HE IS FOUND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PRAISE BE TO THE LORD!!!!!!!!  As I told you about 3 days ago, Thorny, the beloved dog of my sister and her family, had left the nest.  Many people joined us over the past couple of days to locate him and bring him home.  I prayed over and over for God to take care of him and to guide us.  Everytime I drove around horse stables on the southeast side of Leoti, I had this burning feeling.  I don't know how many times we circled that area.  Still nothing.  No sign of him there or anywhere else for those MANY hours.  Finally, Kevin Larson, called Lori and Lars about 2 hours ago to report that he had seen him in a wheat field which was just across the street from those stables.  Three vehicles were at that location within a matter of 3 or 4 minutes.  Thorn ran from everyone.  People were beating down the wheat stubble on foot while others made pass after pass to watch for him.

Within minutes, the frightened pooch tore across Highway25.  People held their breath for fear that he would be run over.  Thanks to the Good Lord, he made it just fine.  Still, the chase continues on the other side of the highway! Lori and Lars continued to call his name but he still refused to halt.  Finally, it dawned on my mother to sing "Happy Birthday to Thorn"       Hmmmm......  Now you are wanting to know where that came from, aren't you?  Well, years ago, Lori discovered that Thorn was a musical little guy whenever someone sang "Happy Birthday".  Amazingly, as soon as he heard the lyrics, he froze in place before turning to see who had been chasing him far and wide.  As soon as he recognized them, he ran into their waiting arms.

The time away from home has not been time he had been eating or drinking.  Thorn has lost some weight.  Lori ran right to the store and purchased him his very favorite cuisine!  LOL!!!

So, anyway, I want to thank each and every one of you who have helped us locate this little member of our family.  Without you, I don't know how much longer he would have been living in "the wild" of Leoti.  Those prayers you were sending for his safe return have been answered.

THANK YOU, KEVIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome home, Thorny!  We've missed you lots and LOTS!!!!!
