A Miracle

Feb
12

About 20 minutes after I got up this morning, the power went out. (And it just now came back on.) It was dark. I lit a couple candles, then took a flashlight and went back to bed to read. When it was light outside, I came back downstairs. Casper was sitting at the door on the back porch like usual. He got up and ran around the side of the house for a few seconds, then came back and sat down again. I thought I should do my routine check on the front porch, feeling kind of hopeless about it. It’s a glass-paned door, so you can see right through it. There was a big mound of white fur on the other side of the door. I couldn’t believe my eyes. IT WAS COCO. I ran out there and threw my arms around her neck, crying and blubbering and everything.


Morgan had spent the night at her friend’s house up the road. I got Coco inside, and started trying to call, but I had to wait till I guess they got up and plugged in their non-electric power outage phone. I had them go wake her up to come to the phone. I said, “Morgan, guess who I have with me right now?” She said, “Coco?” She came home as fast as she could.

The only vet I could find open in the area is the emergency vet in Charleston. They told me all they do is stabilize animals until they can get to their regular vet. Coco was walking on three legs, holding up an injured back leg, but she appeared perfectly stable and alert and fine otherwise. I called my cousin, and he and his wife, Sheryl (who is a nurse) came over. Sheryl brought her nursing supplies and checked Coco over and did some tending and pronounced that the wound I thought looked horrible actually looked pretty good to her. Coco’s leg isn’t broken, unless there is a hairline crack or fracture that isn’t evident from examination. I’m sure the vet will do an x-ray, and her wound will need sutured. Morgan is going to stay home from school tomorrow to help me get her to the vet (and into the car, ack). Coco is eating, drinking, and acting normal other than walking on three legs. She walked around and around in the house for about half an hour on three legs till she finally laid down and took a nap. She is tired. I suspect she wore that injured leg out running on it because there’s no way she raced down the ravine out of the pastures and up over the ridge on three legs. She didn’t bark when she came back, by the way. I had no idea she was out there until I looked. I think Casper did know, though, because when I checked on him on the back porch, he got up and ran around the side of the house, then came back and sat down again. I think he was just keeping tabs on her.

I’ll be keeping her in the house until she’s recovered, then she’s back behind the fence. We’re still planning to get a Pyr puppy here, thinking a companion for Coco will make her happier behind the fence. (I can’t put Casper in with her with the goats and sheep. He isn’t aggressive at all, but he harasses them plays with them. Only his idea of fun doesn’t match up to theirs.) But, that is for another day. Today, I have my sweet dog back. I can hardly believe it.

We’ll never know where she’s been or what she’s done for the past five days, but when she got done doing it, she came home!!!!!

Thank you so much for your support! (I’m sorry it took hours after she came home before the power came back on so I could tell you!)

    This is the strangest thing. My computer has been down for a couple of days and I just got back online. I was reading the story of Coco being gone and your frantic search for her when I when back to the home page and the post that she had come home had replaced the post of her missing. I’m very thankful she came home to you and Morgan. A puppy might be just what Coco, and you and Morgan, need.

    Wonderful news! Now I can stop worrying about the shadowy 4-wheelers in the woods.

    And I might get to meet Coco after all!

    And don’t forget that microchip, next visit to the vet! But I’m guessing Coco might be a bit road-shy from now on. One hopes.

    Thank goodness for hope. Sometimes that is all you have.

    Oh friend I know and don’t know. I am happy your puppy is safe again and with you. Your post made my day better as we lost our beautiful Annie (golden retriever) after a courageous battle with health related issues. It was on the same day your Coco got hit. On that evening had come to CITR for a diversion and read what happened. At least I knew my Annie was at peace while you were battling with the unknown. Our animals enrich our lives. Thank you for sharing your heart.

    Oh, I’m so happy Coco is home!!!!!! And doing pretty good, all things considered.

    Must be the day for power outages. Our coldest day of the winter (high 20’s overnight and only into the 40’s today) and we lose power in the wee hours of the morning and don’t get it back until nearly 2 p.m. No idea what caused it.

    I am so relieved. I’ve never met Coco, but I know fully how devastated we’d be if this happened to one of our dogs. And it easily could–we’re fronted by a road and backed by countless miles and miles of uninhabited state forest.
    Please keep us posted on her treatment and recovery–as the spouse of a small animal vet, I want the details!

    Immense relief and joy for Coco, Morgan and you. I believe you said accident happened on the access road that runs through your property. Can you post signs to encourage (I’m trying to be nice) the drivers to slow down. Casper, one of cats, chickens could be next. May I send you some of the ‘Dog xing’ or ‘Cat xing’ or whatever I can locate to post along that road? I’ll even look for a Chicken sign.

    This is the best news. I saw the post heading on your Twitter feed and was so very much hoping that it was what I thought it was. You inspired me to update my cat’s microchip information and just, in general, to give them some extra attention. Tears of joy for you and your family :)

    So thrilled to hear of Coco’s return. I know that desperate feeling when a beloved pet disappears.

    I am so happy for you. This is my worst nightmare and I’m so glad she returned to you. In fact, I’m so happy that I just donated to your kickstarter. :D

    I’ve been reading your blog for the past few months although I’ve yet to comment. I’ve even been thinking about coming to your big event in September but today was a day I couldn’t resist commenting. So glad to hear your dog has come home. Truly a miracle. Wonderful to hear even all the way up here in Ontario where my son and I raise chickens at Eggman Egg on Subshine Acres. (I wanted to call it Hill of Bills but hubby didn’t like that name for the farm!)

    OMG YAY I’M SO HAPPY. I read the post that she was missing late and didn’t say anything. I was so upset. I feel like I love your animals as much as mine! I”m so so happy she is back x3x3 :dancingmonster: :fairy: :duck: :sheep: :sheepjump: :woof: :snoopy: :heart:

    YAY!!! :snoopy:

    BEST NEWS EVER. I am so happy for you all!

    And I was thinking about what you said in the previous post, when you said you failed her. In my humble, little opinion, you did not fail her. You did the best you could, and look at the result, she came back! =D

    This is just the best news. I hope the rest of the year is full of good news for all of you. :sheep:

    BuckeyeGirl, yes, in fact Morgan was spending the night at their house (the man who hit Coco)–it’s their daughter who is her friend. He brought Morgan home and came in to see Coco and was so relieved, too. He had searched with us the first night. He didn’t mean to hit her, of course, and was very worried, I know. (THAT has to be a terrible feeling, also–having hit a dog, or cat.)

    She’s going to act like you’re punishing her when you make her stay inside while you go out to do chores! Have Morgan stay in and feed her tiny bits of hot dog or something and tell her how wonderful she is!

    Thank the Good Lord, Coco is home. I have worried so much about her ~ being hurt~ in shock and out in the woods alone. I would like to know if the men in the four-wheelers had anything to do with her recovery. I was begining to think that you were just an un lucky person~~ now I know better. :woof: :woof: I’m so happy for you. I love the photo of Morgan and Coco. :happypuppy:

    I’m so happy for you and Morgan that Coco is home. When Morgan first wrote that Coco was missing I thought O’ NO. You could tell her heart was breaking. I know (as many other’s) losing a pet is losing one of the family, and I’m glad for all of you she is home.

    I knew before I read this that CoCo was back. As I was getting ready for work this morning I wondered if I had time to check my email, etc., then your blog came to mind and I knew instantly that Co Co had returned. I must be psychic!

    So, So Happy!

    How wonderful! I had been praying that at the very least you would know for sure what happened to her. Praise God that you not only know, but that you have her back!

    Oh, thank the Lord! Checked yesterday morning to see if Coco had come back, but…nothin’. Then I got no blog reading time until just now. What great news. So happy for everyone, especially poor Coco, who must feel particularly loved with everyone so happy to see her.

    I got online just to check and see if there was any word on Coco. Got excited when I saw the title! So glad she’s back.. Happy for all of you, including the poor guy who hit her. Tht must have been really hard on him hitting one of his daughter’s friend’s pets. I mean it would be hard hitting any pet, but when it is your own kid affected and their friend you see a lot, well, that would be really hard.

    I am so happy for you and just happy, period. This is such good news! She probably was shocked by the event and just kept running. But, she’s home now, safe and sound. Our prayers were answered and I feel your relief all the way here!

    That has to be the best Valentine’s Day present ever! Horray!!! As far as putting Coco back out when she’s fit, I had a thought: instead of a Pyr puppy, how about a Pyr old boy? Every once in a while folks in my area give up their farm and offer their Pyr guardians to good homes. It would seem that maybe she will feel more relaxed in the company of one who more than knows the ropes and would enjoy having a beautiful friend like Coco to show off to? Just a thought . . . . If you asked the folks who watch CITR to keep an eye open for likely candidates, I’ll bet you’ll find one in no time!

    This news made my day :) May Coco heal fast and well.

    I am so stinking happy for you guys! I started crying the second I heard she is back. Prayers for her quick recovery.

    Re. the “critter crossing” signs folks suggested earlier– we have one at the bottom of our drive that reads “Old dog, young dog, several stupid dogs–Please drive slowly.” Describes our canines to a T!

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
