Sophie Is Home!

About 8:30 this morning, found by a neighbor who saw her sitting in the grassy median of the very busy 11-E highway. Sure glad it was a Saturday and traffic was light!

Off to the vet with her now, but she seems to be in good health - dehydrated, hungry and scratched up and shivering.

More details later.

I cannot help but think all the voices added yesterday to ours of "Please, Universe, bring Sophie back!" were most valuable. Thanks to all.

UPDATE: The vet says Sophie, the now most popular dog in Talbott, TN and across the internets, only suffered some scrapes and some heavy stress on her system. She is home on the couch snoring now, having had some deeee-lcious food (just a little until her system gets back to normal) and that is as fine a thing as I hoped for today.

All of you who expressed such concern have my deep appreciation and thanks.

Once I have gathered my wits, I'll put up some pics of the safe-at-home Sophie.

The word for today is -- Woot!!!
