The vet said he didn't know how he did it?? Given enough time he would have found his way home...provided he did't get run over on the road.

Still remains to be seen if they cash the check when they receive it in the mail or just tear it up.....

So glad this story had a happy ending for this couple and the dog. Sounds like this dog is part of their family as any pet should be. It is sad that our society has gotten to the point that we should have to offer any reward to get the attention of people to help us out to get a lost animal or person back. Just do it out of the goodness of your heart! Also, a good lesson learned, especially when an animal is in a strange environment; please keep them secured safely on a leash at ALL times.

If LK would have listened in the first place the poor dog would not have gotten away. But common sense is not so common now is it?

What a great story. Bless the people who found Cole. The writers who have negative comments should go and live with the family who found Cole. They might have a different outlook on life and be a little more sensitive to the feeling of people.

Yeah it was a great story...I would have declined the money (Once) if they mailed it to me I would probably call them and say let's split the money and give it to a few good dog shelters around the area..use that money for some poor other dogs
Good Story

They didnt take the reward money because the are Mennonite...thats their way!

If it would have been regular a Franklin county redneck family...they would have taken that cash in a minute to spend it on tattoos, cheap beer and Skoal!

It's so nice to read an animal story in the P.O. which has a happy ending. I think about Mooch's unhappy ending at the hands of a person I would call less than human, and then I read this story where people are actually good Samaritans. It gives me hope that there are still good people out there.

God bless the ones who found the dog!

In this case all it took was the dog to wander onto the menonite family's farm and they returned it. It wasn't someone that saw the flier. The only reason it made headlines was bc of the families outstanding reward.

I am so glad those people got there pet back, I know how they feel if we would lose ours. I am also grateful to the people that found the dog too now matter what there statis is... At least there is nice people still in the area that cares about other people...
You have to be a real person with a love for animals no matter what to know the joy of a companion as a pet.

They are like children to us too .

I would have done the same and I am unemployed at the time ..

Be a voice for the animals they can't talk..

No I am not a person from the shelter just a person who loves animals!!!!!

YES I have to agree that they will most likely never leave their dog with just anyone again. They should have emphasized to the girl how important her responsibility was and how much this dog meant to them. She should have never left the house with the dog and stayed put till they returned.

If U read the story, it says they had been to that farm before the dog got there, & left a flier!!
