So, I have a love/hate relationship with social media, but today I am grateful for it. Specifically Facebook. And texting. Because last night while scrolling through my Facebook page, I see this photo of a lovely yellow lab with the words: FOUND DOG. I recognize him, so I text my friend, who confirms that, yes, his adventurous canine went on an unauthorized adventure. Ultimately, he wound up safe at the local humane society, but through Facebook we were able to confirm it. Today, I’m grateful not only for social media but for caring people who are willing to post photos and seek safe shelter for an errant wanderer. But I doubt I’m as grateful as my friend Dave or his most-likely-not-very-repentant best friend.
