Karin:

You helped me immensely in our time of need. Simply having a confident voice on the other end of the line was immeasurably helpful in getting me through the crisis of losing my dog. At a time when I felt hopeless and uncertain as to what to do; you helped to refine the search, keep me focused and give us a course of action.

Friday night (05/14). Kobe had been gone for 6 nights and my hope for a happy resolution was fading. Earlier in the day a false alarm led me to a puppy in East Oakland that looked almost exactly like Kobe. I was deflated and sad. I decided to go on a night search mission up to our favorite place, the York trail which leads up to Merritt College. I recruited two friends and just before we left the house for the hike, a call came in from a hiker on that very trail saying she thought she saw Kobe....the timing of it all was very uncanny. She had seen the signs posted around the trailhead.

We spread out our search and started from multiple points around  Leona Canyon, eventually planning to meet at a fire road in the middle of the park. As I was parking the car near Merritt College I had mentioned to a family in their car that we were looking for a lost dog and to call me if they see him. 35 minutes later, as we approached the bottom of the canyon trail, the family called my cell to report they had seen Kobe up at the top. Without that call I would have spent the night searching around in the woods and Kobe and I would never have crossed paths. Voices hoarse and legs aching, we sprinted up the hill and tracked Kobe down next to the library at Merritt with the help of our stranger/ guardian angels. He was VERY scared and skinny  but very happy to get into the car.

Thank you again for caring and for your assistance...
