DH and I used to have a little long haired chihuahua named Mojo. We gave him to another home last August (so just 1 year and 1 month ago). The lady we gave him to was my MIL's co-worker. This morning I get a call on my cell from our old vets office saying that a man found Mojo on the side of the road...in a cage with food and water. I thought that it must really be a mistake so I call my MIL to see if the woman lost Mojo. Turns out the woman was fired 2 months ago. I call the guy and he said that it's obvious that the cage was placed there on purpose and it was on the shoulder of a busy freeway. He also said that there were ants all in the cage! Our poor doggie! Here we thought we had a found a great loving home for him and these people just throw him out like he's a piece of garbage. DH and I without hesitation told the man that we want him back. So looks like we will be getting our doggie back today and DS will be sooooo excited! He asks about Mojo all the time.
Thankfully, the mean lady left his old tags on his collar and the guy was able to track us down through our vets office. He's lucky to be alive considering he has a thick coat and it's been in the triple digits here! It's a blessing in disguise because we have really missed him! Sad story with a happy ending!
