Lost Lucy ended up in Louth
This little dog Lucy went missing two weeks ago in the early afternoon from Naas, and was spotted a little later walking on the side of the M7 motorway. By teatime, she had ended up on the streets of Drogheda, walking around lost and no doubt confused.
Someone must have picked her up off the motorway and dropped her off in Drogheda or perhaps she got loose from her captors. We will never know.
This little lady was lucky because she was found by two very helpful young girls. They kindly took her into their care, and went door to door asking if anyone had lost their dog. But no one knew who Lucy was. So she was taken to a local vet and luckily she was microchipped and registered to her rightful owner.
Her elderly owner was over the moon that Lucy had been found and never expected her to be so far away. Lucy was collected by her owner's son and has a good bit of explaining to do!
And a big thank you to the two little girls who helped Lucy and took it upon themselves to rescue her. An act of kindness indeed. Also, thank you to Kelly who helps Drogheda Animal Rescue in times of need and reunited Lucy with her family.
But this story is a timely reminder of the importance of having your dog (and cat) microchipped and registered to its rightful owner. So many lost dogs and cats are now reunited with their owners because so many more owners have realised the importance of microchipping.
