The Bagley family was told by the Search and Rescue team that they found Dooley's remains and that he had succumbed to Coyotes the day Brad passed away. Morning the loss of these three souls Barbara and her family had a funeral service for Brad and many a comment was made at the service about Brad's unconditional love for animals and for their sweet family pets. On Jan. 30th a call came in that a trucker had seen Dooley. Soon sightings came flooding in. Kurt, Barbara's son, was featured on the local news and more and more community support emerged. The hear warming efforts of people who were willing to give of their funds, time, and love to help this family in their hour of need has been inspiring to say the least. Traps were set, night watch video systems laid out, search parties assembled, flyers posted, social media campaigns began, the word was spread, and this family felt the concern and cares of all who helped.
Above is a picture of Barbara, one month after her accident, ribs shattered, broken wrist, head injury, covered head to toe in cuts/bruises, lungs collapsed, having had plates surgically placed in her chest, and yet climbing under a fence to find her dog.... now that is one determined lady!
Here is a photo of Barbara and her little buddy right after he was recovered. Thank you all so much for your prayers, support, donations, and efforts for this family. It means the world to us.
