It’s always heartbreaking to lose your best friend. Emilie was devastated when she lost hers. Emilie’s best friend is a dog named Jackson.
These two have been inseparable and were together almost 24 hours a day. Emilie got Jackson when she was still working in New York. When she moved to L.A. and San Francisco, Jackson was the only constant thing in her life.
That’s why her world turned upside down when someone stole Jackson. When she learned what happened, she scoured the neighborhood shouting out his name. She could not believe that someone has just stolen her beloved dog.
Emilie did everything that she could to find him. She placed posters and even set up a reward for whoever finds him. She even raised funds to have a plane fly over San Francisco, announcing the reward to find Jackson.
With all of her efforts, Emilie was amazed that the whole community stepped in to help. Strangers from all over the state reached out to give their assistance. They genuinely wanted to help her find her dog.
This has truly touched Emilie because this gave her assurance that she was not alone. This made the whole search bearable.
After four long months of looking for Jackson, he was finally found. Someone called Emilie, saying that the dog showed up in a shelter in L.A.
Emilie was overjoyed. The efforts of the whole community did not go unrewarded as they found who they were looking for.
Emilie is very grateful that Jackson was returned to her safely. She is also pleased that he has not changed even for a bit. Emilie knows that she could not have done it without the help of the whole community.
The whole experience made Emilie reach out to her community more. Now that she and Jackson have moved to Wyoming, she continues to be more active and help out whenever she can. This is her way of giving back because the community helped her get her best friend back.
