The Right Place and Time

My husband and I got the biggest adrenalin rush as we were driving down a two-lane highway in Cleveland, Georgia, and had to swerve to avoid hitting a 20-pound, 4-month-old puppy. We found out from some locals at a gas station that she had been on the road for two days. Of course she has been a gift from heaven, not to mention a delight for our other dogs, who welcomed her into their pack. We were in the right place at the right time!
