Thanks for bringing Milwaukee’s story to light

Dog's reunion with owner shows “the good stuff” is alive and well in Hope and wherever like-minded people unite

Re: Locals help reunite lost dog with owner, Letters (Aug. 7)

Our sincere thanks for the acknowledgement and for the truly happy ending to Milwaukee’s story! It is very rewarding to hear.

I am truly fortunate to be a part of a team where “random acts of kindness” are common and where we see a good share of happy endings. This old restaurant at the Flood Hope Husky has offered good food and comfort, helping hands and kindness, not to mention guidance and direction to weary and lost travelers for many long decades.

Milwaukee’s story is the latest of many happy reunions for pets and lost souls that any number of our team has orchestrated over the years. I have witnessed countless truckers, good men and women, go far out of their way to lend a hand to the needy, people and pets alike.  Bravo to all of them!

Heartfelt thanks to you for bringing Milwaukee’s story to light and for pointing out that “the good stuff” is alive and well in Hope and wherever like-minded people unite.

Please note that our old restaurant will be meeting her demise this fall but the good people who have made her shine will be around, some at the “Somewhere Else Café” in Dogwood Valley, still doing what their heart directs them to and serving it with a smile!
