Little Lady Lost – First day home

My apologies to all my readers for not updating you on how Little Lady Lost finally came home. It’s been a crazy day today.

I promise that I will share the full story with you Friday evening. But until then, I thought I would share a few pictures of my girl. She slept most of the morning and early afternoon (I can’t imagine how tired she must be after such a harrowing adventure) and spent most of the late afternoon and evening trying to figure out a way to get onto my bed so she could eat the cat’s food. She’s never had a problem with that before, but I am sure she’s still not at full strength yet. If there is one thing I know about Little Lady, she is not one to be deterred long!

A very tired girl

Can you please let me on the bed so I can get that cat food?

As an added note, Lady had an interview with a reporter from WCCO this evening. She was quite calm for being a TV star. Even I was amazed at her ability to take it all in stride. She also met her rescuer, Brad Wright, again tonight and seemed happy to just lie on the couch next to him. Go figure! She also had a visit from her other foster mom, Dawn. She knew who she was as soon as she sniffed her and immediately started wagging her scrawny little tail. That made my evening.

Thank you so much for all the prayers, good wishes, good thoughts and kind words. And to all of you who helped spread the word and hep in the search for Lady. Thank you.

    We are just glad she is home. Snuggle hard with little Lady!!

    So nice to see her snoozing so peacefully. She looks really content to be in her bed. 😉

    Been away for too long – looks like I missed a harrowing time and tale. It’s good to come in on the happy ending though.

    I say no apology is needed. I completely understand why you haven’t posted and am patiently waiting to hear more of the story – when you are ready. I’m just glad Lady is home where she belongs.

    LOVE her with all your heart and don’t ever let her out of your sight…..lol

    Brad must have a very kind and calm energy. That’s why his presence didn’t spook her so much outside and enabled her to sit with him in the house.

    Do you think he’d like to adopt a sheltie? Or has Mel been through so much with Lady that she’s not going any where? 🙂

    See ya when you’ve had a rest.

    So good to see her home! That picture of her sleeping in her bed is just beautiful. Feeling teary all over again!

    Welcome home Lady!

  9. December 2, 2011 at 6:57 AM

    We had been following your story and did a happy dance and Thank God when we heard Lady was home safe and sound. So happy for both of you! God bless!

    I only heard about what happened a few days ago when you write your peaceful post and I am SO happy and heartwarmed to hear that you got Lady back safely. You really are surrounded by an amazing array of people who remind me that humans can be good and kind.

  11. December 2, 2011 at 7:22 AM

    Tell Lady if all she wanted was to be on TV there are easier ways to do it! 😉

  12. December 2, 2011 at 8:12 AM

    What a blessing she is home and safe. I can only imagine your relief. It must be quite a story!

    That is good news!

    That photo of her sleeping is just so peaceful. I am so glad Brad was there at just the right moment. His patience with her is amazing. What a kind and giving person he must be.

    Take it easy, Mel. Enjoy that feeling of having all your little ones home.

  15. December 2, 2011 at 9:22 AM

    Love our Lady Girl. I’m so glad she is safe and recovering.

  16. December 2, 2011 at 10:36 AM

    I’m glad Lady’s guardian angel found her and went the extra mile to rescue her. Lady owes Brad a big sloppy sheltie smooch. 🙂

    I wish all lost dog stories could have such a happy ending.

  19. December 2, 2011 at 1:31 PM

    Yay! Welcome home to Lady! 🙂

  20. December 2, 2011 at 1:53 PM

    can’t wait to hear the story!

    sleep, Lady sleep.

  21. December 2, 2011 at 3:06 PM

    Lady looks relieved to be on her bed, sleeping of being home, warm, and fed. Thank goodness she is home!!!!!

      She was relieved for sure Ellen.

  22. December 2, 2011 at 3:14 PM

    So nice to see her relaxed and safe with you again!!!

    I have a question, why is the cat’s food on your bed? My cats eat out of a bowl on the floor.

    • Mel
      December 2, 2011 at 9:24 PM

      LOL! Actually Danielle he used to eat on the floor too, but when I realized that Lady had a penchant for eating cat food I started putting it up on the bed. Of course, since then I have discovered that she can get on the bed so I had to put up a gate. I only put it on the bed again because I didn’t feel like putting up the gate and I thought she wouldn’t jump on the bed because she was so exhausted. I was wrong. She tried. Many times. 🙂

  24. December 2, 2011 at 5:45 PM

    Thank goodness she’s home safe and sound!

      What we won’t do for our pets!

  25. December 3, 2011 at 12:08 AM

    So glad she is home and not-so-worse-for-wear after 12 days flying solo.

  26. December 3, 2011 at 10:57 PM

    So glad Lady made it home. I have been following your story. Many prayers have gone to Lady and her family. So many people involved in the miracle of Lady coming home. Miracles are real!

      Delana – Thank you for your prayers. I firmly believe that it was prayers and many, many good people, like you, that brought Lady home.
      Yes. Miracles ARE REAL!

  27. December 3, 2011 at 11:00 PM

    Our dog just passed away Thursday so this is the news I needed to hear about Lady making it home.

    • Mel
      December 4, 2011 at 7:30 AM

      Oh Delana! I am so very sorry! There is nothing like the loss of a pet is there. Seeing them everywhere they used to be is the hardest. They are so much a part of our lives.
      I am glad that Lady’s safe return helped in some small way. My thoughts and prayers are with you. I am so sorry for your loss.

  28. December 5, 2011 at 12:30 AM

    I’m so happy that Miss Lady made it home safely!
