This morning, I received the following email from my father-in-law about their dog, Lucy.
You will never believe this. I was walking with Lucy about 7pm or so last night, when that little black dog appeared out of nowhere. Then all hell broke loose.

Waiting for the two of them to come out of the tunnel seemed like a lifetime. I thought for sure they were gone. Everybody was on the other side of the street waiting for a miracle.
Finally they came out with Lucy holding the little black dog ever so gently in her mouth.
Lucy saved the day. By now the Police came, lights glaring and sirens raging.
Officer Murphy held Lucy in his arms and told Mom and Me that she was Medfield’s hero for the day.
