Scene of the rescue

Saturday night I crashed hard. Crawled into bed at 6:49 and was all set to watch Jeremy Brett as Sherlock and I’m pretty sure I was asleep in 5 minutes. I left the pup sleeping downstairs. When the rest of the family came back from dinner, they took the dogs out for one last pee. Only problem is they forgot to bring both dogs in.

Yep, Java camped out in the back yard on Saturday. She was so happy when I brought her in early Sunday morning.

Well, not to be out done, my sister’s dog decided to run away on Sunday night. Coco has always come back in the past, but Sunday night we couldn’t find her. Three of us were driving around checking the neighborhood. We are pretty close to the train tracks, and trains go by fairly regularly. The woods behind my sister’s house, lead up the tracks and there is no fence. With no sign of Coco, I was dreading getting up early to check the tracks.

Didn’t need to. Coco was indeed on the tracks, but luckily she was spotted by a Conductor who brought her aboard and called the local police. Coco had a nice ride into Penn Station and the train crew brought her back on their return run.

So lucky that it wasn’t one of the express trains. It was a train that had stopped at the station and the train crew noticed her frozen in the tracks, just staring at the light. So they called to her, and Coco was her usual exuberant self and bounded right up to them.

Yep, never a dull moment with canines around.
