Foxy, Coon, Bird and Skip
PERCY: Hey, why is Miss Doxie's picture posted here today? I thought we were going to post one of us.
RUSTY: We were, but we couldn't agree on which one of us to post and since Jan is antsy to shut down for the night, we grabbed the first picture we saw.
CYNDI: But Miss Doxie (From Foxy to Doxie) only stayed with us for one night because her owner abandoned her.
MARCUS: Okay, she's not one of us, but we need a picture and she fits the bill, so let's stop arguing and get to work.
MERCI: Oh, I'm impressed. Marcus just had a word of wisdom and it actually made sense.
MICAH: Jan took this picture recently to remind her of a very nice old man who used to talk to her and the dogs on their walks.
BUDDY: He nicknamed me "Coon", for coonhound. Sam was "Bird", the bird dog. And Merci walks with a distinctive skip in her gait, so she was, of course, "Skip". Yes, we will forever be Coon, Bird and Skip.
SAM: One morning there was a U-Haul truck backed up to the house and we got there in time to wave good-bye to the old man as a young man who called him "Pops" drove him away, most likely to a nursing home.
MERCI: He looked old and frail as he climbed into the car. A few days later there was a huge pile of his belongings at the curb. The cats he fed have disappeared.
BUDDY: Today, we are thankful for a man, whose name we don't even know, but who helped us reunite more than one lost dog with his family. Mr. Veteran, Sir, we salute you.
