Dog days of Summer
MONTREAL - A Montreal pooch who disappeared last year has miraculously turned up some 4,500 kilometres away in Kamloops, B.C.
The black Labrador named Pollux is afraid of the water and detests the rain, yet she took an adventurous turn upon fleeing through a gate mistakenly left open at her east-end Montreal home last June 20.
Her owner, Isabelle Robitaille, said the family had searched high and low and given up hope they'd ever find the dog they had saved from the SPCA in 2005.
Then on Canada Day 2011, they received a shocking phone call from the SPCA in Kamloops: a dog with a tracking chip containing her information was found in B.C.
Photos sent by the shelter confirmed it, Robitaille said. Pollux was alive and well although a bit leaner than before.
"They told me she was in excellent condition," Robitaille said.
The Labrador retriever had been named Suki by her saviours in the southern interior city of Kamloops, B.C.
Thanks to my friend Chip for sending this to me.

A whale swims all day, only eats fish,drinks water and is fat. A rabbit runs and hops around all day,and only lives 15 years. A tortoise doesn't run, doesn't hop, it
does nothing .. yet lives for 450 years.. EXERCISE Just a little giggle for today
