The Tale of Rocky and His Rescue From the Woods
With fireworks soon to be going off all around, I thought it fitting to share this story about a senior dog who went missing after fireworks last year.
Rocky, a senior dog, was frightened by fireworks and ran off into the woods. His family had been searching for him for days when some loggers found him. They contacted the local Humane Society. Noticing this dog was having trouble walking, a man carried him out of the woods.
Sadly, it turns out Rocky also has cancer. 😦 But, fortunately, he was reunited with his family. I have included a link at the end of the post so you can watch the live rescue of Rocky on the Conway Area Humane Society Facebook Page.
Unfortunately, there are many animals that do not get the happy ending that Rocky did. Some are never reunited with their family.
If you haven’t seen my previous post: Safety For Your Pets During Fireworks, here is a comment a fellow blogger left me on that post.
Thanks for this! In the past, while traveling, my dog, Tula, had ran away from fireworks. Luckily, she is now safe. Her BD is on July 4th though so we try to celebrate it as best as we can safely while being inside! This is really great information! Please share it with others who don’t have access to this blog! Thank you so much!
I Love My Dogs, Tula & MOCHI
I have shared it on my Facebook Page and encourage others to share this post as well as the safety post. Let’s keep our furry family members, safe this holiday!
In a previous post I shared the graphic below that I made, only it was in black & white. I have changed it for the holiday to focus on three of the FEELINGS experienced by our pets from the fireworks: Fear, Confusion, & Anxiety.
This graphic is also available to share on my Facebook Page: Fourth of July Feelings Image.
Without further ado, here is the video post on Rocky’s Rescue: Rocky’s Rescue.
