Dog, owner reunited after three years

Nov 24, 2008 Full story: Naperville Sun 11

Three years is a long time to be living outdoors. But that's about how long Czar, a 10-year-old German shepherd, was a stray in Warrenville.

Good morning. Hi Orphan, and Free Thought. It was a wonderful story to
have told around Thanksgiving. I am so glad the owner and Dog found each other again.

I also applaud all those people who in their own way looked out for "Bob"
by giving him food to eat. I sure he will have a wonderful life from here on
out.

Animal lover,

I get such a fuzzy feeling when I read stuff that shows you that there are a log of good people still in the world. Like the family that picked up my dog. But if I had had to wait three years for him I would have gone coo-coo

Yeah,I believe you set a new record for that....more like three days, lol (j/k). Take notes, Astounded....for next time (if there "is" a next time, hopefully "NOT").

He is tagged and chipped....although I think my fiancee would willingly let him go next time. They don't get along very well. Tater tends to be a little mischevious every now and then.

I was going to say, "Sounds like you need a new fiancee"...but then I remembered I'd never marry a woman with a cat.

maybe tater knows something you don't??? Dogs tend to be a good judge of character....so are cats...
and Les...
it's good you get that out there right up front about not wanting a woman with a cat....
My ex when he was really abusive, became the target of the family cat, who stuck up for me...eventhough she was originally HIS CAT...
everytime he'd throw something, or slap me, or verbally abuse, she would promptly go upstairs and pee on his pillow!! She never bothered my things...but his stuff was fair game.
She learned how to open his dresser drawers, and would pull out all his clothes, socks, etc...and then pee on them...
He never did make the connection that her disdain for him was because he was such an A@#hole...
he, of course blamed me for the cat's behaviour, and at one point told himself and me that I must have trained her to do that!
I told him that he was misguided in that thinking, because the cat was his to start with....she simply was voicing her own opinion about his 'tude...
Of all the things I had to leave behind, it was the dog and the cat that pained me most...
I worried that he would hurt them...
So, I understand your dislike for cats in a way....but, sometimes, they can be the most amazing furry angels in the middle of a storm.

Aww, Tater has a way of aggravating people, I think he enjoys it. He does things like zip out the door, and then he will let you get right up to them and watch you out of the corner of his eye, when you're right there, he'll run like the dickens for a few more feet. He even aggravates me sometimes. But then again, so do our human families, and we still loves them too. I agree with OA about cats. I have five of them. I would say at least 95% of the time if you have a cat that is peeing somewhere, it is either really old, or really p***ed off. Maybe Les knows from experience....hee hee.

Did you ever see the Olympic hammer throw - specifically how the athlete spins in a circle before releasing the hammer? This is what I would do to any cat that pee'd anywhere in my home other than in its litter box.
I have picked up hundreds of soiled newspapers in the process of training puppies I've owned, and cleaned up the occasional mess a dog made when I was stupid enough to not arrive home in a timely manner. But I would never put up with any animal purposely peeing on something.
Needless to say, I've never owned a monkey. The first time I caught the damn thing throwing its dung, I'd cold-cock it into tomorrow.
