When Peter and Paula Closier’s dog went missing, the couple was frantic. Somehow their 5-year-old Beagle mix named Bonnie got out of an open gate and seemed to vanish into thin air.
With the help of their two daughters, the Closiers looked high and low for Bonnie but couldn’t find her anywhere. Neighbors even joined the search. Local veterinarian offices and even the police were called but there was no sign of the little dog anywhere.
What the family didn’t yet know was that earlier that day, Bonnie had made her way to a highway nearby. A good Samaritan named John Wilmer was driving by and spotted Bonnie on the side of the road. Lucky for her, he stopped and picked her up, but he happened to be on his way to a dog show.
He was late, so he had no time to look for her owners. But once at the dog show, he took a picture of Bonnie and posted it on Facebook, announcing that he had found her. Eventually, Paula saw the post and relieved, reached out to John.
Arrangements were made to meet up after the show and meanwhile, Bonnie would stay with John for the day. There happened to be a Best Rescue Dog competition, so John decided to enter Bonnie in it. Well, Bonnie must have had fun because she came in third place!
So, when Bonnie was finally reunited with her family, she enjoyed a great day out. Not only did she get to watch a dog show, but she also got to be in one and even sported a big, yellow ribbon to prove it.
