Family thanks community for helping find beloved pet
Chip is back home!
He is the tri-color sheltie that went missing in Tomahawk Aug. 26. Thanks to the amazing communities of Tomahawk and Rhinelander, we were able to track his location and eventually get him back after nine days.
We would like to thank the communities for their help during this difficult time. Thank you to the individuals who walked, searched, checked their cameras and shared information about our lost pup. Thank you to WJJQ and Lost Dogs of WI. Thank you to so many businesses that put up flyers, including Trig’s and Besseys who distributed flyers. Thank you to Lincoln and Oneida county Humane Societies and Fetch Foster and Rescue for the live traps. Thanks to Greenwood residents, Greenwood Cemetery and Duck Point Resort for letting and helping us invade your neighborhoods and put up traps and cameras. Thanks to Carol Lofquist, TLC Dog Training for strategizing with us and spending countless hours helping search for Chip. Thanks to those who loaned wildlife cams.
Most of all, thank you to the many people – friends and family, who searched with us, provided kind words of encouragement, shared the story on Facebook, checked their cameras and prayed for his safe return.
Chip was elusive and scared for nine days. He eventually came out of the woods while Lacey, his sheltie sister, and I were re-setting a live trap on Labor Day. Lacey barked to alert me and once we locked eyes, he came right to me.
Even during this difficult time of searching, I felt very supported and blessed by our community and my friends and family. We are truly grateful.
Ann, Bob and Lexi Heise
