A healing for Huggie Bear
Last winter in Surrey, England, we experienced extreme weather conditions just before New Year’s. I live on the edge of a forest, and the snow accumulated until it was quite deep.
As I live alone and am self-employed, I had my work cut out for me in tending to nine stabled horses. Since the water pipes were frozen, I had to get water in buckets from the house. A neighbor dropped in to offer welcome help, and together we were able to provide water for all the horses—all was well as I knew it would be. As we finished the task with the horses, I noticed that my female Jack Russell terrier, Evie, had taken the opportunity to go off hunting for rabbits, taking her five-month-old puppy, “Huggie Bear,” with her.
When Evie returned at nightfall, however, she was on her own with no sign of her puppy. I was very concerned for him, as although he was quite an intelligent puppy, his coat was short and he had very short legs. He could easily have gotten lost in the deep snow.
