Breaking News: Petra Bailed out of Jail


One year ago today, we doled out cash to bring Petra home as part of our family. To celebrate her anniversary, we dolled out cash once again, this time to get her released from the shelter! The Lord answered our prayers and Petra is with us once again. She is her normal healthy energetic self and we are SO thankful. I knew it was her as soon as we saw her in the kennel, and I hadn't even seen her face yet. I was so relieved that I started crying and I was just so happy to have her back. She is being royally spoiled now of course! We wish she could talk so she could tell us all about her scary adventure. Or maybe it was a fun one?!

  3. I'm so glad you found her!!!! I was up till 3 am sewing, so as my doggie was sitting next to me it was super easy to keep you on my mind constantly in prayer for you to find her. :-) So glad she's home!!!

  4. Glenda- actually lots and lots of extra treats are in order because we are fairly sure it was fowl play at some point. Whether or not she was taken from our yard, she was found without a collar, and dropped off at the Humane Society by someone who would not leave their name, could not remember where they found her and who also mentioned that someone "made" them bring the dog in. Somewhat suspicious if you ask me! There were other things that had made us suspicious already, so hearing those things just made us even more thankful to have her back.

    That lady didn't know it, but it was the Lord who made her bring her back.
    Love you, and so glad your dear pet is home.

  11. Thank you all so much for praying. It really did bring a miracle!

    She definitely was excited to see us, jumping all over the place and wiggling. We got to go see her to confirm she was our dog, and then we had to leave in order to fill out paperwork. The second time we went to see her was when I took the photo, and for a second I think she thought we were going to leave her there, so that is why she was hanging her head!! She is so sweet, it was so sad!
