This is the day that I met Azrijah. The day after Porcfest XX ended on June 25th.
So, she dropped Azrijah off at my friends campsite. When I saw her, and heard the story, we bonded instantly.
We went for a walk and ended up spending a couple hours at my campsite
We took another walk around Roger’s Campground, but I let her lead this time. She walked right to the Free Talk Live campsite, where she had spent most of the past 2 weeks.
Later, while I was recording a promo video, she decided to check one last place… which was heartbreaking to watch.
After realizing that her room was now abandoned, she guided me to a spot with an incredible view. I just have to assume that was their peaceful hideaway.
We stayed there for a while as she was forced to cope with the fact that her human wasn’t there anymore.
It wasn’t long before I noticed the remarkable resemblance with my cousin’s lost dog Lucy. Lucy disappeared during a camping trip in North Carolina back in April of this year.
There has been a major search effort for her ever since. Lucy’s been on over 50 news broadcasts, and her Facebook group has over 2000 members looking for her.
So we have a dog that lost her family, and a family that lost their dog.

I just received news this morning, LUCY HAS BEEN FOUND
I’m so happy for Dana, Glenn, and their family! You never gave up, and are finally being rewarded 🥰
I’ve spent the past month with Azrijah, and I completely understand the attachment that can develop, particularly with Golden’s.
Now, I’m just waiting for the judge to realize it was a mistake to lock someone in a cage for a “crime” with no victim, and we can reunite Azrijah with her family again.
Never give up hope.
