Letter to the editor | Thank you for helping to look for lost dog
August 10, 2011 · Updated 1:59 PM
I’ve read numerous letters in the Kirkland Reporter, most of them negative and that’s okay, it’s a place to vent. But I’d like to do a little something different. This is more a heartfelt letter because of the care and compassion we have received and because I had no other idea how to thank everyone who has helped us. Our dog ran away on July 22. My daughters and I made fliers and posters and harassed every neighbor we could find. Then we went across the street to the west side of Market and harassed more people.
I have never been so overwhelmed by the compassion these people have shown us and their willingness to help. From offers of a Segway, to willingness to hand out fliers to hugs and walking the neighborhood with us to calls offering help. To date we haven’t found our Coco, but if my neighbors have anything to do with it we will. I think it’s important to know the kind of people you live by. The quality of their character. I know that I am so incredibly blessed. Losing Coco was a heartbreak (and I do believe we’ll find her), but knowing these people around me has been a gift. So thank you to everyone out there who has helped.
Lisa Taylor, Kirkland
