Man Reunited With His Long Lost Dog After 4 Long Years

man reunites with lost dog after 4 years

Mike Plas was at work when he says he got the greatest phone call of his life on the afternoon of September 20. It was from an animal shelter in Winnipeg.

The shelter asked Mike if he had a dog named Jack. Mike told the shelter that he had lost Jack four years ago in Thunder Bay, Ontario. And to his surprise, the shelter said they got Mike’s information off a microchip in a dog they had found.

Jack, a Husky mix, went missing after he slipped out of his perimeter collar and ran away from home. Plas says he missed his companion and searched for years, posting online about Jack in the hope someone would find him.

“We did everything together – we went fishing together, went hunting together, he came to work with me half the time. I’d take time off work to celebrate his birthday with him. Some days I’d get really upset, when I’m missing him a lot,” said Plas. “But I never lost hope.”

We’ve all spent a weekend on the couch staring at the television. Well Sophie the French Bulldog has a similar approach to vegging out for a few days. She spent the weekend in her jammies, perched on an ottoman, gazing intently at a fish tank. It was the doggy version of a Netflix binge, and Sophie refused to look away, even for food.

The pictures show Sophie absolutely mesmerized. When her ottoman is moved, she simply adjusts her angle to get a better view. When her owner puts a towel over the fish tank, she sticks her head under it giving her a personal theater. Nothing stops the fish tank marathon.
