TroyREVToday I could not for the life of me get motivated. I wouldn’t go so far as to say I was depressed. It was more like a case of the autumn doldrums to which I tend to be prone. There’s something about the days getting shorter and the weather getting cooler that makes me want to stay in bed in the morning.

Fortunately I got a little something in the way of a pick-me-up that I wanted to share. It made me smile and I am certain it will do the same for you. Which brings me to the thumbnail gracing this post: as some of you might recall yesterday I posted a lost dog flier for a pup named Troy. Well, I am pleased to announce that he is not only home safe and sound but I had a part in making this happen! kaveh writes:

Hey Heather,
Troy has been returned to his home! I was walking home last night and noticed my upstairs neighbor, who doesn’t own a dog, was walking one. Fast forward 10 minutes later, I’m checking your blog (as I have been doing daily for years) and see this posting about Troy. I thought he looked familiar and told my wife about it. This morning my wife saw our neighbor and sure enough, he was found a couple of days ago. We referred back to your blog, they called the owner and we hear that Troy was brought home today. So thank you for posting this and for making this wonderful blog.

You know, some days operating New York Shitty feels like an exercise in masochism. I receive no compensation whatsoever for the amount of time I put in researching and writing posts and let’s face facts: “bloggers” do not exactly get a lot of respect (and to be perfectly frank a number of them do not deserve it). The previous having been written, I have a confession to make: knowing that I have helped a Troy find his way to his rightful owner makes all the trials, tribulations, frustrations and late nights totally worth it. Thank you so much kaveh, for sharing the good news with us!
