The Runaways are found!
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

March 11, 2006: The Littleford family recently moved into Meeth and a couple of weeks ago our two King Charles Cavaliers escaped!! We were absolutely distraught, running around the village in a desperate attempt to find our dogs before one of the high speeding lorries that charge around the country lanes got to them first! My husband and I were shouting their names and neighbours were helping us in our plight. We managed to find one of them, and were searching everywhere for the other. A small green car pulled up outside the Bull and Dragon public house, and a young man got out - he asked if we had lost a dog? (he must have seen us in our frantic state). We said yes, and there was our other dog, sitting calmly in the back of his car. We said thank you to this young man and his fellow traveller and left hugging and crying at the relief of getting our boys back. Once we had recovered and got back home we realised we hadn't thanked these two young men enough, they could have just left our dog roaming down the main road through Meeth, or taken him away or anything else unimaginable in this harsh world. However they didn't. We left Birmingham to create a more peaceful, friendlier way of life, and this just proved we have achieved that. We would really like to them to know how much we appreciate their kindness, as we don't know who they are we didn't know what to do, we thought in writing this, someone may recognise the two young men who helped us and inform them how truly grateful we are. If every they are passing this way again the drinks at the pub will definitely be on us.
