Letter to the Editor: Barney’s home, thanks to the folks of Superior

Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

  The outpouring of care and concern for Barney, our “escapee” dog, is beyond anything I’ve ever seen.  Within minutes of receiving text messages and Facebook posts, hundreds of people were spreading the word and looking for him.  So many folks gave their valuable time and drove up and down the streets and fields of Superior.  Sightings were reported, mostly at Circle K, where he enjoyed at least one hot dog someone gave him to lure him out of their truck! 

  Three days later the Superior PD and Connie Perez sighted him  on Main St by the old Police Station and brought him home.  Tired, thirsty and limping, he was one happy dog.  He literally slept for 24 hours. 

  A huge thank you to everyone for the above and beyond support you showed for us.  The reason Bill and I moved to Superior was because of the great people and this is a classic example of people caring and helping others.  The power of wonderful people, along with Facebook, ended like a Fairy Tale.
