The subtitle of this layout should be Rescuing Shiner. We had just identified Shiner's address and were about to take him home to his family.

So, as I’ve blogged about before, Matt and I rescue animals who are in danger. Unfortunately, finding animals that need help is not difficult. There are a lot of reasons that pets wander from home and find themselves in dangerous situations. In the case of this dog, his owners told us that they had just adopted him about two weeks ago, and they didn’t realize what a great jumper he is! In fact, he jumped their fence and crossed a major intersection to get to our neighborhood. It’s a little miracle that he made it.

Matt was out on a run that afternoon, and he had been gone longer than I was expecting, so I was just starting to consider calling to check on him. Just then, he called me and asked me to come running with some dog-catching supplies—kibble, water and a bowl. I should have known that’s why he was out longer than usual! I quickly gathered these items and raced down the street with them, only to find Matt and a small group of neighbors standing around talking, with this dog standing calmly on a pink leash. They had caught him just before I arrived.

We took him home for the night with a plan to begin looking for his owners the next day. We and Shiner were fortunate that his owners had microchipped him! We had him scanned, called the number provided and set up a plan to take him back home to his family.

I’ll be honest, not all our rescues go this smoothly. So in honor of this one that did, I had to celebrate it with a scrapbook page. Plus, those are two cute boys in that photo!

Product/technique notes:

I used patterned papers from the Simple Stories “24/Seven” collection (but the background paper is from Fancy Pants’ new “Memories Captured” line) and the following sketch from Paper Bakery.
