Ladysmith couple grateful to person who found their dog’s coat

David and Linda Brown of Ladysmith thank the person who found their dog's coat and left it hanging up near Slack Point.

Editor:

On Wed, Dec. 12, I took Penny and Jamie down to Slack Point with their heavy dog blankets on as it was very cold.

Penny took off and half an hour later, came back through the brambles without her coat — yikes!!!

I knew we could not replace that coat.

The next morning, David and I dressed in heavy coveralls, work boots, leather gloves and thick hats and pruning shears and secateurs, and we went down to Slack Point to thrash a path in the brambles and find Penny’s coat … ONLY to find it hanging on the yellow metal post at the parking lot down by the beach!

Needless to say, we were delighted and thrilled with the kindness of some very thoughtful individual.

A million white roses and red balloons to the kind and thoughtful person who found Penny’s dog coat down at Slack Point and put it on the post in the parking lot. You made several people and one naughty dog very happy.

The world is a great and wonderful place because of people like you.  Thank you so very much.

David and Linda Brown
