The incredible journey

Dear Editor:

I would like to thank, among others, the following people and businesses who helped me find Jasmine, a very shy, tri-colored, short-haired, rescued German Shepherd/greyhound, who was adopted to a local on Sept. 3. He lost her only a few days later near Thompson Creek outside of Carbondale.

Bambi of BT Horse Ranch, Sue Harding of Vail, 7-Eleven in Carbondale, Lisa Harris of Colorado Mountain College, Restaurant 689, Animal Control Officer ReRe Baker of Pitkin County, Hailey Oaks from Carbondale, Valley Dog Rescue, Animal Rescue of the Rockies and, above all, Carla Comey.

Jasmine ran from Thompson Creek all the way past Redstone and back to Carbondale, where she was finally trapped after four weeks of being on the loose. Jasmine was very skinny and filthy but alive. The outpouring of encouragement, concern and care of everybody involved is what kept me going to not give up on finding sweet Jasmine.

Thank you for helping me bring Jasmine home.

Holly Walthers (and Jasmine)

Vail Doggie Day Spa
