Wednesday evening, around 1730,
with the temperature still in the high twenties,
Candi our black and tan kelpie…was in one of her usual spots in the shade after
a day of above 30 degrees Celsius temperatures.
By 1750 she had disappeared.
No-one in the neighbourhood had seen her…
and while we were spreading the word
and looking for her, other dog walkers
commented that she was timid
and an unlikely candidate to run away.
I am not sure who was more upset,
Taji or MGW.
While wondering what our next step was going to be,
the sky had turned to dusk,
MGW heard the phone beep and noted
there was a message.
Thinking it was a neighbour who had found Candi,
you can imagine her surprise, shock and relief
when she hard it was
The Geelong Animal Emergency Centre.
With very little light in the sky we set off
on a TWENTY-THREE kilometre drive
to the Animal Emergency Centre.
Candi was unharmed and very pleased
when we arrived home.
How did she get there?
She won’t tell me…yet.
All we have been told is that she was found
on the Melbourne Road, Geelong West,
which does not make sense.
However, I think we all slept a little better than
we would have otherwise last night.
But we are still wondering…..HOW?
And more to the point WHY?
All’s well that ends well.
