A fuzzy black-and-brown puppy named Triton has been reunited with his family after spending almost two weeks lost in the wilderness outside Port Clements. (BC Canada)
Port resident Debbie Delves found Triton on Friday (Nov. 16), 13 days after the little rottweiler/border collie/lab cross had gone missing while out driving with owner Clint Beachy on the logging roads.
Volunteers spent hours scouring the forest for the pup, who was only 10 weeks old when he disappeared. Searchers were almost ready to give up when Nov.14 Clint received a phone call from someone who had spotted Triton. That sighting revived the search, Ms Ryland and others spent hours looking for the puppy the next day, with no success.
On Friday, Ms Delves decided to head out with her two-year-old grandson, Kao. She brought puppy chow with her, thinking she would at least leave a dish of food in the area where Triton had last been seen, the Flo logging road. "It was snowing like crazy," she said. "Then, I saw this little black head pop out of the ditch." At first, she thought it was a raccoon and was about to move on, but then she heard the jingling of Triton's choke chain. She quietly crept towards the ditch, shaking the food dish - and the very hungry puppy leapt towards her, knocking the dish out of her hand in his excitement. "He was definitely skinny, but he was fine," she said. "I was just in the right place at the right time."
Ms Delves, an experienced dog owner, said she has no idea how the puppy managed to survive in the woods for so long.

"Thu, 22 Nov 2007--in less than 24 hours I am getting on a plane and going to Kigali, Rwanda. I will be there for 6 months attending a Discipleship Training School with Youth With A Mission. This will be fulfilling a deep longing of my heart...
November 24, 2007--So I made it just fine even though the flight was long and horrible. I wanted to turn the plane around and go home until...I got to Kigali and I recognized the smell. The smell of Africa! I will love it here, no running water but... oh well! Kigali is beautiful!" For more information click on Johanna's blogsite. "May God Bless and keep you" gb.

The above picture is of yours truly celebrating my birthday Nov. 9, 2007. I'm in the Cranbrook BC hospital having crushed ice only. I missed posting Beachy news on this site for a few weeks, it is good to be back on line. I will spare you the details of the past. Next step is an ultra sound and when the Oncologist has all the information they will decide what kind of treatment I will be given. Signed, Glen of Beachy Echoes blog site.
