Poncho is home!!! We are so happy. Before I get into the story of Poncho’s excellent adventure, let me first apologize to everyone for being delayed in letting you know that he is okay. While most of my friends and family know that Poncho was found and is back home safe and warm at Hummingbird Farms, I realized after reading some comments (and some email messages)that I hadn’t alerted those that read the blog. I do apologize! It still amazes me that there are actually more than two people, including my mother, that reads this thing….
Those of you that know the breed know that they can track some miles in a very short time. I suppose his little instinct told him to run, and run he did. After he took off we are assuming he got disoriented in the storm and simply didn’t know where he was.
Fortunately there are very nice people in this world. A lady that happens to work at Texas Tech (Go Raiders!!) and her co-worker happened to see Poncho way out on the highway, several miles from the house. They were concerned that he was going to get hit by a car so they pulled over. As soon as they opened the car door he immediately jumped in the backseat. Poncho LOVES to go for rides. I can’t help but think that he thought if he just jumped into a car, any car, it would somehow miraculously drive him home.
Oh – and just so you know, we had the vet micro-chip Poncho before we brought him back home….
I just want to say THANK YOU NICE LADY FROM TEXAS TECH!!!! We are very happy to have him home. Most of all, thank you for all the efforts you made to find us and most of all THANK YOU for wanting to keep him in case you didn’t find his owners. I know he would have been very happy with you. Again, it is assuring to know that he would have had a happy home. AND- if you happen to read this, please get in contact with me. We wrote down your name and number but in all the excitement we cannot, to save or lives, find where it is. We would like to send you a little surprise….
THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
