My uncle checked up on Lucy and her sister today. The good news is that the owners claimed them about a half hour after they were picked up!!! *happy dance*
Apparently, the two got loose from a home here in Lincoln -- get this, though. They live about _three miles_ from us...good grief. That's a long distance for two dogs to travel--along some very busy streets. EEE. I'm so glad they made it to us safely.
And I'm also happy to report that the family had already been calling in about them, long before they were turned in. In fact, they were on the phone with the shelter when the two arrived.
Oh man, I love happy endings. :)
