When we purchased the farm homestead, we also got sweet Gloria. A couple of weeks ago we noticed that she had a cyst growing by her tail. We decided to have surgery done. It was scheduled for today.
The plan was that Dale drop her off at tthe vet, I start work early and leave early to pick her up. When I was on the way to my office, I received a phone call. Gloria had bolted! As I drove over to help find her, I watched the running path on the North side of the highway. I had a feeling that I was going to find her there.
I was disappointed when I got to Cold Spring I hadn't seen her. We drove around, up and down the roads looking for her. Dale had reported it to the police so I stopped in with a photo from my phone. Then I headed home. There she was! Running towards home on the running path about half mile out of town and moving fast! I stopped at the end to wait for her. She ran the other direction.
I went back to the other end. She stopped too far away to recognize me again, turned around and ran the other way. I called the police as I drove to the other end. I received permission to drive down the "no moving vehicles allowed" running path. The police car parked on the other side and we caught Gloria.
Her surgery was successful and she is at home recovering .
