Letters: Faith restored

Letter writer is thankful to drivers who let her dog cross the highway

Morning of March 5, around 7:30 a.m., we almost lost our Faith.

Faith, is an almost four-year-old Belgianshephard, border collie cross. We got her from the SPCA two years ago and her history is unknown to us. When she gets frightened she has a tendancy of reverting to where she feels safest, unfortunately, this meant leaving Sooke River Road and returning home on Kaltasin in a hurry.

I honestly didn’t believe she would have crossed the road without some type of chaos ensuing, I want to say thank you, for slowing down, whether one kind driver (or several) let her across or by chance and luck she ran at the opportune moment.

I never truly understood just how much I love this dog until she was lost, whoever you are we are indebted to you!

Bev, Brock and Ulyjha Armstrong

Sooke
