“OCEAN WALK” subdivision…LEE DRIVE
ST. AUGUSTINE BEACH, FL
MISSING!!! 8 week old white lab puppy. Presumed to have escaped from our neighbor’s, fenced-in, back yard. Boy, did this neighborhood come to life… IMMEDIATELY!!! PUPPY ALERT!!! MISSING PUPPY ALERT!!!
WOW!!! Neighbors EVERYWHERE… searching for Sunny. All over the neighborhood. Wooded areas. Along Pope Rd. Along Mickler Rd. In back yards. Under porches. In the small creek by Pope Road that runs down along Mickler Rd. In garages. People walking. People riding bikes. People driving cars. A police officer even stopped to “investigate” this “organized” search occurring along Pope Rd. right in front of Ocean Walk subdivision!!! ALL OF US…LOOKING FOR…”SUNNY”!!! An 8 week old white lab puppy!!!
And the “clincher”??? Our, beloved neighbors, right next door, were simply “puppy-sitting” for ONE day!!! That’s right!!! “PUPPY-SITTING”… FOR ONE DAY!!! 😉
AND…ANOTHER “CLINCHER”? My guys had just returned home from their Boyscout camping weekend, 11-ish am. They were unloading the van, I was cutting up a pomegranate when notified about this missing puppy. Folks from ALL over our neighborhood sprang into action… IMMEDIATLEY!!! ARE you with me?
OKAY…I ADMIT IT!!! I can be a little…well, maybe a little…”lazy” on mornings when I have nowhere to be or nothing to do…outside of my house! :/ YOU ARE “WITH” ME NOW, right? HERE WE GO…
NEIGHBORS IN NEED OF…”HELP”!!! Yep, I sprang into action, folks…wearing “night” clothes-only. No make-up. Un-combed hair. Morning breath…with un-brushed teeth!!! Sound familiar??? I am not kidding, folks!!! I COULD NOT MAKE THIS STUFF UP!!! I, at least, “thought” enough to slip into my thongs/sandals!!!
Yep, there is a GREAT ending to this story…on about the 5th “search” behind their couch, Sheila found this puppy lying in front of a hole in this couch!!! Yep…Sunny had found that “hole” and decided to head inside that couch for a NAP!!! Sheila had looked back there numerous times… NOTHING THERE!!! Until Sunny woke from her nap and… THERE SHE WAS!!!
Sheila snatched Sunny up and brought her outside to “CALL-OFF” the neighborhood “SEARCH”!!! PEOPLE WERE CELEBRATING…EVERYWHERE!!! As Sunny yawned, numerous times in Sheila’s arms, unaware of the TOTAL HYSTERIA as neighbors banned together to “FIND” a “LOST” white lab puppy…who had simply been napping!!!
What a GREAT neighborhood. GREAT neighbors. GREAT PEOPLE!!! WE ARE TRULY BLESSED!!!
Ocean Walk subdivision banned together TODAY… and formed our very own…”Number One Team”!!!
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
