Happy ending: Golden Retriever stolen during carjacking returned

Couldn’t be better news than this:

Naylor just before midnight on New Year’s Eve had returned to her apartment in the 1100 block of FM 518, when a man approached Naylor’s Jeep Grand Cherokee and ordered the woman and her daughters out.

The family got out safely, but Buddy was in the SUV as the carjacker drove away. The dog didn’t have a nametag or a microchip.

Naylor’s vehicle was found burned out New Year’s Day morning in the 11000 block of U.S. Highway 59, Sgt. John Jordan, a League City police spokesman, said.

Authorities couldn’t find Buddy.

Naylor said she didn’t expect anyone to find the puppy alive.

A woman, however, called Naylor on Sunday saying she had found a dog that matched photos of Buddy shown on the news after the carjacking.

The woman had picked up the dog at a McDonald’s restaurant near Little York Road and U.S. Highway 59 in north Houston, where a homeless man had tried to sell Buddy to her Sunday, Jordan said.

Two League City police investigators drove with Naylor on Monday to retrieve the dog.

The Kitchen Remodel from Hell

Well, I’ve not been posting too much in the last few weeks as life sometimes gets so busy and so complicated and so, so messy. But, there are always obligations. So, I did manage to get out my foundation’s quarterly newsletter.

You don’t want to miss it. You will learn about my kitchen remodel, which after 3 months, has not gotten that far.  And, I have a book review of Stephen Huneck’s final book as well as a wonderful article from Suzi Beber on Slow Cooking for your Dog.

Just click here and you can print out your own full-color issue.

If you haven’t seen Dr. Greg Martinez slow-cooking for his dog family, in addition to eating the same out of the pot with them, you haven’t lived. Honestly, I’ve watched it a few times and enjoy it more each time. Dr. Greg is too funny and writes to tell me of his latest concoctions, all based on what goodies they have on special at the supermarket.

Do check out the good doctor’s great book, Dog Dish Diet, which I gave a Thumbs Up Review to in one of my previous newsletter issues.

And, for some of his latest gems and great advice, please enjoy a copy of his latest electric publication, Canine Crock Pot Cuisine.
