Collie found 5oo miles away !!
« on: June 24, 2009, 07:33:56 PM »
The 17-year-old collie called Lucy vanished from Sonya and William Mckerron's house in Redruth Cornwall on February 6.

They spent months looking for her and had given up all hope of seeing her again until they received a call from an animal rescue centre in Edinburgh.


Sonya then drove to Scotland to be reunited with her pet at the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home last Saturday.

"It feels overwhelming to see her as we didn't think we would ever find her again. I was in the house and I went to the toilet and when I came out she was gone from the drive, never to be seen again.

"We hunted high and low, phoned everybody including rescue centres and because she is chipped we thought we would find her.

"She is not a wanderer but from now on I will be keeping an eye on her so that nobody steals her."

Dave Ewing, the Edinburgh Dog and Cat Home manager, said he suspected Lucy had been taken by someone rather than having just become lost.

"I am confident Lucy was taken by someone either because they thought she was genuinely lost and they were doing her a favour or they knew they shouldn't have taken her.

"When we saw her chip had a Cornish phone number we thought we would just try it but we were expecting it to be an old number and that her owners had moved.

"So the staff here were over the moon to find the owners still lived there and that they could be reunited with Lucy."

All the way from Cornwall to Edinburgh! No matter how near or far, she is home now, where she belongs! What a happy ending, I would be over the moon also. I am delighted that you have Lucy back and to learn that she is in good health too.  :)
You're never friendless ever, if you have a dog.
