Puppies Found = Prayers Answered

When I picked them up I cried. like. a. baby. I sobbed. 
I was up until 4AM riding the roads, printing and posting fliers, posting on FB, and emailing. 
I got up at 7:30 this morning and started riding the roads again and knocking on every door and stopping every man on a tractor and every other passerby. At noon I came back to the farm and suited up in long gloves and rubber boots and trudged through every swamp, forest, pond, and pasture on our property. The heat index is 110 and the humidity is unreal. I am now covered in bug bites and scrapes. My clothes were soaked down to my bra and underwear. I was drenched. I called up to the clinic at 1p to find out Brandon was on the phone with a person who knew who had the dogs. I immediately jumped in the car and went to pick them up. The people did not want to give Bayla back. In fact, they offered us $500 for her. Are you kidding me?! There is no amount of money I would take for my pets.
I loaded them up and brought them home while I showered and then brought them to the clinic to see their daddy. They got baths, microchips, new collars, and the royal treatment. Thank you for your prayers. God answered them.





Needless to say they were thirsting and starving to death!! Even though they were gone 24 hrs, they looked like they had been gone a week. God is good, though, and we are so thankful he provided a way for us to get them back home. 
"But if the animal was stolen from the neighbor, restitution must be made to the owner."  Exodus 22:12

  23. PHEW! I'm SOOOO glad you found them. Ah, that would have been heartbreaking. Dogs really become like your family! Shasta decided to take a stroll to the neighbors down the street from us one time and we were all SOBBING when we couldn't find her. Little did we know, she was having her own little play date with the yellow lab...her best friend! haha (:
    Praise the Lord they're back!
