An ELEVATOR MINUTE in the Town of Millet

Pipestone Flyer

 

 

Do you live in the Town of Millet? Have you heard of the lost and roaming Great Pyrennées, the white and slender dog that has been part of the Millet folkore for some time now? 

 

When Bella was a pup, she was the beloved daughter of a young Millet family. When hard times prevailed, this young family moved to another town and Bella was adopted by family friends, who for their own reasons gave her away to a ‘friend’: well, Bella did not find a safe haven there, so she ran away from misery. She found a relatively safe home on the streets and back alleys of Millet, and survived on scraps of food shared by kind-hearted strangers.  It took a while for people to realize that this dog had no family, but her shy nature prevented anyone from getting too close.  Her original family came looking for her, and were also unsuccessful in catching her.

 

When I was told this story, I thought this happened a few months ago: imagine my shock when I heard that in fact, Bella had been on the loose, hungry and confused without a loving family for… two years!! The authorities cannot hep due to some complex rules, and the cost of hiring a dog catcher with a tranquilizer gun is prohibitive to this young family’s budget: they have circulated her name and their phone number, and drive to Millet on a regular basis to look for her. So it’s up to you, Millet residents, to spread the word and help rescue a beautiful creature that deserves a safe and loving forever family. Bella’s former parents want to give Bella another chance at happiness. If you catch a glimpse of Bella, the shy, long-haired and white beauty that’s on the loose in the Millet area, please call 780-932-0707. Thanks!
