Before the Reflections from this adventure get underway, wanted to share what happened the minute I opened the door of my uber ride home from the airport on October 26.
This story actually begins the day I left fir Kemet October 14, when I realized that I had left the key to the front door inside my apartment instead of in the lockbox! I was supposed to leave the key for the Dog Sitter.
I wasn’t too worried because my daughter AND property manager also had keys and could easily leave in the lockbox. However, this did not happen. So by the time October 26 rolled around, Sybil had had enough of the backyard and escaped! Of course the neighbors were concerned because the dogs are taken care of very well. So what did they do? They called the police of course! Why not the property manager, whose phone number is POSTED ON THE FRONT OF THE BUILDING??? We will never know….
So the moment I step out of the car, one neighbor calls out to me from her window: “The Cops was at your building this morning. AND THEY TOOK YO DOGS” then-she was gone! I said Thank you. Of course my phone was dead. Fortunately the key to the backyard was in the lockbox so I went to the basement to charge my phone and call a locksmith.
While waiting for the locksmith, the landscape person for the apartment next door explained to me in very little English that 3 plain clothes cops and cars came by with a firetruck! Took the ladder to the third floor apartment, broke in and took the dogs! Yikes!
Once the locksmith got us inside, it was very obvious that the cops broke in for a wellness check. The door to the Wellness Center was busted open but nothing was moved or taken. They left on the lights in my apartment ( still not sure how they got in tho…) They left no written record of the wellness check or any info about the dogs. I was terrified….no I had not registered the dogs in Chicago yet.
We went to two police stations. This event was not mentioned anywhere in the system, with no information about Sybil and Ilu. Fortunately, an officer that had been on the scene was eavesdropping and told us the dogs were safe at a no-kill shelter.
We went to pick them up immediately.
They are now tagged chipped registered vaccinated and they caught the Dog Flu. They rode home from the shelter in a Mercedes Benz and we rode an uber to and from the vet where they got medicine for the Flu.
The next thing I did was to thank 2 of the neighbors and exchange phone numbers. In the future, we can communicate without calling the police! This experience actually made my street more friendly. I am looking out for the other 2 neighbors and look forward to getting to know them all better.
Too much excitement! Very little time to process the journey. Now that the doggies are safe and sound, will get started writing about the trip!
Makes me wonder because when I got home ftom Kemet the first time in 2011, was hit with a very long chain of adversities! But this time around, things are turning out in my favor!
