Dog Rocco, delight of 5-year-old girl, returned after 5 years



Here is the story.
Rocco was found 850 miles away and was returned to Natalie, now ten years old. Natalie had never completely given up, had never stopped thinking about him.
Quote:
"Every time I would see a dog on the street, I would say to my mom, 'Maybe Rocco will come back,' " Natalie said. "She would say that he probably isn't going to come back. I would say, 'I know, but maybe he will.' "

She even refused to part with his favorite toy, a stuffed cat.

"At night, I would wish, 'Please Rocco, come home.' And now that wish came true," she said.

Enjoy the pictures on the website.:D

I glad you liked it. :D (I've noticed happy, sweet stories worth sharing are hard to find. Crime and rudeness seem to get a lot of news attention.)

"as calm as pie." It's unusual, but it fits. When was the last time you saw an angry or agitated pie? laughy_smilie laughy_smilie
Thank you, I didn't appreciate that the first time I read it.

What would be the opposite? "That man was as angry as a tossed salad!"lips_sealed
