Letters: Fantastic community

On Tuesday, June 17 I had the misfortune of having my dog jump out of my parked car and get lost.  After nine hours of searching and I was extremely grateful that I found her safe and sound.

I contacted fledsearch.wordpress.com and usedvictoria.com to list her as missing and the response was unbelievable. In addition to my friends and family, total strangers were out driving around Sunriver for hours searching for my dog.  Anyone I stopped to talk to was extremely friendly and also said they would keep their eye out for her.  Everyone was very helpful and concerned about my dog.  Yes, she is just a dog but she is very special to me and the children I support.  She is trained as a therapy dog and comes to work with me every day to be with children with autism.

Throughout this extremely stressful situation it has been reinforced again what a fantastic, compassionate community Sooke is.  I moved here from Calgary seven years ago and have never regretted moving to this incredible town.

I’d like to take this opportunity to send out a very special thanks to everyone who was out there looking for my dog.  Thanks also to all the people I talked to in Sunriver.
