REUNION OF THE DAY: Chewie

"Chewie, our golden MOODLE came into our lives eight years ago. He arrived via airfreight from Country Puppies in Bathurst. He was a bundle of fluff when we first saw him and we could really see his eyes through all the hair, so my son named him Chubacka. As he settled into Melbourne life and his new home, he discovered his love for chewing, especially any unsuspecting socks left lying about. So his name was shortened to Chewie.

Chewie is at the heart of our family, along with our cat Lucky, who is Chewie’s best friend, and often comes on family holidays never far from under our feet. On our evening walks both Chewie and Lucky come together. For the last couple of weeks, I have been staying at my sister’s house looking after my elderly mother. Naturally, Chewie came with me and until yesterday he had been enjoying his new environs and new neighbourhood smells. Yesterday, while I was at the hospital with mum Chewie, managed to find an escape from the backyard and when I came home excited to see him he was nowhere to be seen.

Initially, I couldn’t believe he had gotten out. I walked around the neighbourhood calling him for an hour or so and then further afield in the car but to no avail. I spoke to neighbours and the Postman who recalled seeing him out on the street that morning but nothing. At some stage, I had a cry.

Not knowing where to start I simply googled ”find my pet” and came across Lost Pet Finders. I thought it could be just another online rort but being desperate I signed up, paid for a Pet Alert and logged Chewie’s details. I found the site very helpful as it went through a checklist of what to do. I promptly got an email back welcoming me to the service informing me there were 142 people within a 1.8 km radius who were registered with their service so I was hopeful.

I rang the local Vets, Lost Dogs Home etc but nothing. I made up some cute flyers and blitzed the neighbourhood by that time it was dark so I decided to retire for the evening. Later in the evening one of my sons rang me from home to let me know someone from the Glen Eira Council had left a message telling us that Chewie had been found.

First thing this morning I jumped in the car and was off to the Council Offices who informed me he had been taken to the RSPCA. Two hours later Chewie was back in my arms as gorgeous as ever.

When I got back to my sister’s I had 8 messages from LostPetFinders. One was from an angel called Elizabeth who wrote saying she had found Chewie on the way home and taken him to the nearest VET.

Thank goodness for the kindness of strangers. Thank you to LostPetFinders and everyone in the local neighbourhood who was so supportive. The postman stopped by this morning to see if Chewie had been found. And I was so happy to be able to tell him YES." - Kerry
