Lost Dog, Found Owner, Good Feeling

D06B_B_Large Dog Paw.jpgAbout two years ago there was a lab/retriever mix matted and hungry outside my college dorm.  I noticed that it had a collar so I approached it and caught it by the collar. (I worked at a vet clinic for over 2 years so I knew what I was doing…always be careful around an animal you do not know.) 

I got an old telephone cord and tied it around the collar as a leash and walked the dog to the on campus police station.  They looked at me like I was crazy to stop and help the animal, but helped me just the same.  I called the number on the tag multiple times and got an answering machine.  

About an hour and a half that I found the dog, the police and I got a hold of the owner’s friend (I can't quite remember how) who was watching the dog.  She came to pick up the animal and thanked me and the campus police. 

Luckily I had a long break between classes at this time, so I didn't miss anything important.
