A man could not dream of a more beautiful gift.
The owner of the dog Buddy, who disappeared on a walk by the stream, was looking for him for 6 days. Until that call from the vet clinic she got on her birthday. A man could not dream of a more beautiful gift.
Simon Kitchen, 51, had just recovered from surgery and wanted to please his dog Buddy by taking him for a short walk. The man, a 3-year-old American bulldog and his friend traveled to the Lake District region in northwest England.
However, the walk took a very bad turn. Buddy ran and surprised his master, who lost his balance. The 50-year-old then slid 200 meters, hitting branches and brambles before ending up in the river below.
The current was very strong and Simon Kitchen could no longer see his four-legged friend. He thought the current had swept him away, according to Team Dogs.
For 6 days, this Preston resident continuously walked back and forth from his home to the place where Buddy disappeared, trying to find him, but to no avail.
“They pulled him out of the cage and he pinned me to the ground”.
Then, on his birthday, he received a call from the Farmgate Veterinary Clinic in Sedberg with the incredible news: Buddy had just been found. The man found him sitting on a rock before bringing him to Farmgate.
Simon Kitchen couldn’t hold back his tears when he heard about it. He immediately jumped into the car and drove to the veterinary clinic. The moment of reunion was filled with emotions. “They pulled him out of the cage and he pinned me to the ground,” he explains.
