the top news story this morning

an elderly man was reunited with his runaway puppy after a young woman jumps out of her car to chase it down. last night, this old man was walking his 8 week old sara down 24th Ave in South Surrey to the post office when Sara got away. When sara began to run, dragging her leash behind her, she darted in and out of traffic on 24th causing cars to slam on their brakes and swerve. when angela and her friend, rebecca turned their vehicle onto 24th, the scene that they encountered was a speedy puppy running far ahead of it's elderly owner who was attempting to chase the dog down the street. in moments the girls decided they needed to help the man so rebecca drove up along side of the dog and angela jumped out to chase it down. thankfully wearing her runners, angela's speed helped her catch up with that quick puppy. she gathered sara up and walked back down the street to give the dog back to her owner who was still doing his best to keep up. the grateful man thanked the girls and sent them away with a "i'm so proud of you both". today we are happy to report that sara is home safe with her owners.

I was just thinking to myself today, it's a good thing I chose to wear that athletic footwear, because in anything else I may not have caught up to small sara. Remember folks, when leaving the house, if what you are wearing could possibly go with running shoes, why not? You never know when you might need to run your fastest, or give the neighborhood an impromptu demonstration of your athletic abilities.
