Paul Wu of Kirkland, Washington, was pulling his car out of the driveway and saw a dog he’d never seen before.
“He would not go away, and I stop he comes up to me,” he said.
Wu found a bag hanging around the dog’s neck, carrying money, and a note.
“Please take care of Mr. B. He is a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel. Six years old. My parents got divorced and Mr. B was supposed to go to the pound. I think he has a better chance with you. This is my birthday money for any of his care. He is used to kids, not other dogs. He’s a good boy. I know God will take care of Mr. B – Everyone loves him…especially me. Thank you.”
Wu took the Cavalier into work, and his colleague immediately was compelled to help.
“I’d hate to be a kid making that choice,” said Robert Kuchcinski, who has three children of his own. “It didn’t seem right that it would go to the pound.”
He took the dog home Thursday afternoon, and to a veterinarian. Mr. B had some dry skin, and plugged ears, but overall had a clean bill of health.
Kuchcinski and Wu still wonder what the rest of the story may be.
“All I want to do is let this person know, that we found him a good home. That’s the whole message,” said Wu.
“Hopefully they’re happy with the dog having a good home,” says Kuchcinski, “And things are find with them too.”
