HAPPY ENDING: Home, Safe n’ Sound: Lost Dog: New Waterford, Cape Breton Co., NS — Border Collie/Labrador Retriever mix, Male, 1 Yr — “Bowser”


HAPPY ENDING: Home, Safe n’ Sound! Yeah! A huge thank you to all who reported sightings and helped Bowser during his extensive travels. I know there were more, but big thanks to Nicole and Kimberly. Kerk, Bowser’s Dad, did everything right…this is a great example of what is known as a Finesse Capture, so important for a skittish dog like Bowser: “He was on the side of a house and Kerk sat in the grass….. slowly fed him a cheeseburger softly talking to him! Bowser kept getting closer and then Bowser licked Kerk’s face!!! And then Bowser just started crying…. he snuggled right up under Kerk’s chin!” Gives me chills every time I read it. Thanks to all of NSLDN for caring and sharing Bowser’s info…it works! YIPPEE!! (5.2.18 – 5.20.18)
