This story tugs at my heart so much. Since the tornadoes swept through Joplin, Missouri last spring, I’ve followed this family in their search for their beloved dog, Hanah, a white American Bulldog. And yes, she’s alive! She was seen shortly after the destruction by someone who saw a black SUV pull up along side of her. The person even took a photo of her, not even realizing that she was a lost dog.
In my own online searches for lost dogs across the country, I have seen Hanah’s “lost” flyers everywhere! Hanah’s mom, Kari, and likely a team of supporters, have done an amazing job at getting the word out to the public about Hanah. So who has her?? Why has a year gone by and still Hanah isn’t home?
There is a reward for her safe return. It’s very likely that someone has taken her in as a stray, not realizing that she already had a family. Take a look at the flyer below. Do you recognize this beautiful girl? Can you help Kari and Hanah reunite? Join the search on Hanah’s Facebook page.
I was born and raised in Iowa and so I’m quite familiar with the fear that comes along with anticipating really bad weather. I’ve spent a lot of time in hallways and bathtubs and basements, waiting for the storm to pass. I worry the most about my dogs and what might happen to them if the storm is really bad and sweeps us away. Should they be in kennels or not? Should I tie them to me somehow? What do you do? When I think about the fear that likely went through both Kari and Hanah as the storm hit them, I get tears in my eyes. I can’t imagine it. I mean, I CAN imagine it but it’s too painful to even think about that I refuse to let myself continue to go there. I want Hanah to be found and brought back home where she belongs. I need a happy ending for this family!
Let’s do it!
