As many people are aware, I was involved in a serious automobile accident on the evening of Jan. 16 in Falmouth. My two Chesapeake Bay retrievers were kenneled and strapped down securely in the back bed of my truck. Because of the severity of the accident, one kennel was ejected from my truck. I was able to recover one of my dogs unhurt at the accident scene, but my other dog, Casco, ran when her kennel opened. She was missing for six days. During that week without Casco my days and nights were filled with uncertainty and fear. I couldn’t imagine my life without her.
Casco was returned safe and sound on Jan. 28 and now life is slowly getting back to normal. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my family, friends, the Falmouth school community, Police Department, rescue and all the people who searched and offered their emotional and spiritual support for Casco’s safe return. A special thanks goes to Thomas Edmonds, who recovered Casco safely and changed my life on that Saturday.
