Found on a Rainy Day......

by Jim Brown
(San Diego, CA)

About ten years ago I nearly ran over a little springer that darted in front of my truck as it chased a rabbit. Days later I found him tangled in some wire in a maintenace yard behind my office.


Concerned about the dog's welfare, I went to the couple who owned him and asked them to keep him confined. Their response was that he wandered into their yard on a rainy day a year earlier so they named him Rainy Day. They believed that he had been dumped since they lived at the end of the road and dogs and cats were frequently dumped there.

Announcments in papers and "Dog Found" posters produced no one to claim him. The couple then explained that since he wasn't really their dog and he was causing problems by wandering off of their property they would turn him over to Animal Regulation.

Instead, I ended up with him and he has turned out to be the best bird dog and family pet you can imagine. Estimated to be at least age 12 and beginning to feel the pain and limitations of arthritis he has now been retired from hunting. This fall another English Springer will be joining us and in keeping up with name line we are on will be called Sunny Day.

good post NEW
by: Brijrajos

What a superb story you have shared with us. Human Rights is very important in any developed and peaceful country. Now this article is a beginners guide regarding human rights which everyone must read and know about the limitation of Human Rights and more about it. if any government don't care the human rights then we should protest against that government and that point you try to understand with the help of this article. You did really good effort. any how, I try to get writing services but i'm glad after getting this website as well.

found on a rainy day.....
by: Estie

Who got found? You or the springer??!! I always say that we were rescued when we adopted our 2 rescue springers.

God bless you! Many times over! Your story brings tears to my eyes because I truly believe that you end up with the dog that is meant for you. It's not just a random wandering, a random lost and found, a random adoption! It's all in a plan, and we are so much richer for it.

What a very sweet story - honestly, it made me cry! Aren't Springers just the best?! I have two, one 11 Year old who is starting to feel age creep up on her. She is truly the best dog we've ever had.

What a great story. Life's best gifts are sometimes the unexpected ones. I had to laugh as I read your story. We have just come in from out morning walk and Emma is very, very wet. Looks like a rainy day in Kentucky. Hope it doesn't rain out the Derby.
