Our world nearly crashed Sunday (July 18) when our Scottish Terrier, Molly MacTavish, got out of our fenced yard. With darkness approaching, Port's Finest were called, Officer Brian McCarty responding immediately to help in our search. Unsuccessful, he said he'd continue looking through his overnight patrol.

After a sleepless night, Leo went to the Port station to check departing rush hour commuters while Ruth stayed at the phone for possible calls. No one had seen Molly, many were sympathetic and reassuring, offering advice and best luck. One lady said she'd pray too. That prayer - and many of our own - worked. A call came from North Hempstead Town Shelter. Molly had been left there during the night, her identity tags helping to locate us.

Thank you Port Washington. We have lived here since 1959, wouldn't consider living elsewhere.
