A big thanks to the Oprah Winfrey Network for this “Lost and Found” video. Leia, beloved dog who wandered away from her El Paso, Texas family during a rain storm was found in Denver, Colorado two years later.
I’m grateful when stories like this are filmed and shared. Good people made this reunion happen. Leia remembered. Her foster family was thrilled. It’s a story with a happy ending, and we can’t have too many of those.
