Weather has been really bad here in Texas; extremely hot ...
After we walked TOto in the evening, we decide to go out for our grocery shopping. When we return home after that, the weather was so good; we decide to give TOto his 3rd walk of the day! Usually his 3rd session is only just for a potty session. But the weather is so good, we decide to walk him again because we know TOto will enjoy the nice breeze after the rain just now. And by then it was about 11.45pm!
We came to the same round-about where I spotted Chikita's owner. I saw a Black/brown Lab ran across the road with his collar and harness, but here wasn't any Human beans around.
Something is not right, and we decide to go check it out.
We 'command' TOto to find the Black Lab!
When we are close enough (right cross a small road), we decide to let the Black Lab approach TOto, and as usual; TOto is just a "LOST DOG magnet"!
Even if the Black Lab doesn't trust us, Human beans; he sure trust TOto!
After the introduction period, the Black Lab trottered around us, but following tight ...
Slowly we gained his trust and we managed to leash him while I carry TOto. After leashing him, we checked his tag; his name is Cooper and yes, there is a contact number. So while walking Cooper, Daddeee tried calling but no one picked up the phone! We are quite disappointed and decide to just walked Cooper around the neighborhood because we know he is LOVED and his owner must be looking desperately for him.
By then TOto is tooooooo heavy, so I left for home to get a 2nd leash and some water for Cooper. By the time, I met up with Daddeee again; he managed to get his owner over the phone. Luckily they stayed near us and finally we managed to reunite them ...
(Please ignore mammeee in her almost pyjamas and no-makeup face!)
Such a weird adventure in the middle of the night 12.30am!
Cooper's owner has been walking Cooper at the park outside our community too! And Cooper has gotten lose and was disoriented by this moonless night. But when we find Cooper he was running towards his home too and when we managed to gain his trust; it is actually right outside his unit! So Cooper knew his way home from the park outside but we are still happy to know we help a family get their pooch back safely!
We hope if such unfortunate incident happen to us, we get the same kind of karma back!
A good lesson for TOto to be close to us at anytime!
I remember on the day when I find Chikita, I walked TOto at an odd, unusual timing too!
Luckily Daddeee is with me, if not I sure wouldn't know how to handle such a HUGE lab dog ...
