Thanks to the Happy Bay neighbors, strangers and Crosslake police for helping us find our German shepherd in the middle of the night.

Bringing your flashlights and continuing to search for hours in the dark of night, in the woods, for a dog whose owner you had never met was heartwarming. Finding “Sarka” made our Fourth of July truly “Happy.”

Thanks to true good Samaritans!

Helen Estrem,
