On New Year's Eve around midnight, our elderly dog Bonza (freaked out by the fireworks) slipped out of the house, jumped the fence and ran off into the cold night.
We would like to thank the many people who helped us to find our much-loved pet:
. Madeline from the Coquitlam engineering department, who gave much good advice and encouragement;
. Sarah from the Coquitlam Animal Shelter, who, even though the unit was closed, helped me and again gave good advice as to what to do;
. Our friends Bonny and Gary, who searched along with us in the cold night and;
. Most especially, Janice and her daughter, who through a total fluke happened to be in Mundy Park at a time that they would never have normally been there and gave us the information that they had seen Bonza miles away on Gatensbury hours before and tried to catch her.
They even went back to their neighbourhood to continue looking.
We also have the deepest gratitude to the many people to whom we gave our phone number and who gave us encouragement and their own stories of lost dogs found.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the safe return of our beloved
Bonza! Lorna and Phil Campeau Coquitlam
