My Dog Was Reunited With Her Sister, by Sheer Coincidence
We adopted Lucy from our local shelter when she was 8 weeks old. She was one of seven siblings that all looked exactly alike. At the time, we lived in another town and within a year moved to Morris Plains.
While out gardening a year later with Lucy, my faithful companion, a woman and her 4 children walked up to me. I was covered in dirt and thought great, what am I buying today - A box of candy or wrapping paper that I don't need. Regardless, I graciously greeted them and she introduced herself, (Nicole) and said that for the last three months, her children have been bugging her non-stop to see if Lucy was their dog Madee's sister because they looked exactly alike.
Of course Nicole and I being cynicial adults, were sure this was wishful thinking on the kid's part. After comparing notes we realized that we had adopted both our dogs from Mt. Plesant Animal Shelter one day apart and the kids were right. Lucy's sister Madee lived 3 houses up the street! As we compared stories we discovered that neither of our pups were "dog friendly", but we decided to introduced them that Saturday and see what happened...
We opened the gate to Nicole's backyard and they eyed each other up, furiously sniffing each other while I prayed a fight wouldn't ensure. Next thing we knew, they tore off into the back yard, playing like then never been separated. To this day (3 years later) our family is great friends with Nicole & Scot and their family. Our beloved pups get together for doggie play dates at least twice a week.
The most ironic thing - I had been so curious about what mix of breeds Lucy was that I did a BioMed DNA testing and turns out - get this.......she's a Dalmatian, Rhodesian Ridgeback, Boston Terrier, Beagle, and Newfoundland! How all eight puppies turned out looking exactly the alike, we will never know.
Not only have our dogs become the best of friends over the last 3 years, we have a wonderful friendship with this family and spend many weekends barbequing together while our dogs play.
Did I mention how much I love my Lucy?! She's the light in my life, goes every ware with me and I mean every ware, even has her own bed in the back seat of my Jeep. Lucy makes me a happier person and cheers me up on my worst days!
