    • The Happy, “Rest of the Story” of the Labrador Retriever Missing in Albemarle Sound, NC

      Thanks to Captain Rogers, we hear of this happy ending to an otherwise sad story. Kudos and congratulations to the wonderful, caring Hansons for adopting another rescued dog.

      Bucky’s remains were found today at Roanoke Island by a kind fisheries ranger. He tried calling us several times and we finally had to drive halfway to town to get reception and speak to him. We would like to thank everyone for kind expressions of sympathy and creative and helpful suggestions to find him. Thank you friends, one and all ‘“ you have been wonderful.

      Yesterday, a Lab fell off a Southbound Uniflite and the couple could not find her, although she wore a yellow life preserver. It was like a
      lake so the distraught couple does not understand what could have happened. The USCG and local fishermen were notified. Tomorrow they
      will put up posters in Elizabeth City and environs. The Lab is tan and about 12 years old. She has a color with their phone number in ink,
      but they fear it washed off.
      If you learn anything, please email me or call my cell at 443-223-1559.

      Subject:LABRADOR RETRIEVER LOST ON THE ALBEMARLE – OUTCOME
      A good holiday outcome to an otherwise sad story. Sadly, Bucky was found dead by a Ranger on the shore of Roanoke Island – 25 miles East of the channel where he was lost. The head of the Rangers was notified by a list member (of the Great Loop, T&T, or Liveaboard List) named Adam. Thank you Adam.

      The Pughs, a gracious, dog-loving couple in New Bern, NC read of the tragedy and had just participated with the Craven County Animal Shelter in the rescue of a Yellow Lab thought to have fallen out of a pickup truck in the New Bern, NC area. They had taken him to a vet for treatment after seeing him at the shelter. He had avoided euthanasia by being so sweet. The Pughs contacted me having read the first email and I asked Bucky’s parents {the Hansons} if they would like to adopt this dog who appears to be about 8 years old. They did!
      In a few days, their new dog Lucky, will travel with them to Wisconsin along with Baylor and their two cats. Hearts are mending and animals are comfortably adjusting. Everyone including Lucky remembers their past but is enjoying the present.
      Thank you to all who expressed their concern and asked to stay informed. This has been a tribute to caring people and the power of the Internet in bringing them together. And they all lived happily ever after.
      Happy Holidays,
      Ron Rogers, Washington, NC
