Williamsburg, IA – Last Saturday started out much like any other weekend for Albert and his guardian.
The senior dog happily enjoying the outdoors while his guardian worked in the yard…much as he always had done throughout his many years of life.
But something went wrong that day and Albert disappeared – the 15 year old, mostly blind, almost deaf dog was gone.
Albert’s guardian was frantic – search parties were formed, fliers were created and much sleep was lost.
Albert had never, in all of his years, wandered away. His disappearance was completely out of character.
But last night, after so many tears were shed – right before all hope was lost – Albert was found.
His discovery seemed almost miraculous.
From his guardian,
I asked god to show me a sign today if Albert was going to come home and God sent me a cow! I was in my driveway praying and a tree down the road made a huge sound….Thinking it was Albert I rushed down and all I found was a cow. I shut my engine off and just cried for a moment. Then I heard a bark in the distance. I ran down that road faster than I thought I could ever run and then he barked again. So I ran back up the hill to my van and drove through the pasture and he stopped barking. Hysterical because it was getting dark out and he stopped barking I started calling everyone I could to get help. Albert had been gone for 4 days and without his medications so time was of the essence. Luckily Amy heard splashing and we rushed to where it was. THERE HE WAS in the mud up to his chest and under a log.
Albert is back home – safe and sound, albeit a few pounds lighter.
His guardian reports that in her heart, she knew her old dog was not gone – but she began to question her heart when days continued to pass with no sign of him.
Welcome home Albert – enjoy your blankets, food and love.
