Man thanked for actions in saving dog

Editor: We would like to say ‘thank you’ to the anonymous man who saved our dog.

Our dog Koda (a malamute/wolf cross) got out of our yard on the very rainy afternoon of Thursday, Jan. 9.

This man put aside any fear of getting bit to save our dog from a very dangerous situation. Koda was running through traffic on 40 Avenue during rush hour (about 4 p.m.) in the pouring rain.

Koda is a very large dog and is very intimidating to most people.

We can not express enough how truly grateful we are for this man’s kind, courageous act. He put his own safety at risk in order to save an innocent animal from danger, possibly death.

It is refreshing to know there are still people out there who care enough to go out of their way to help. Our sincere thanks to you for saving our dog.

Greg Babuin and Cindy Lundy,
