April’s beefs and bouquets

Helping hands applauded while a doggie coat theft is deplored on the Saanich Peninsula

A heartfelt bouquet of thanks to the couple who, on the evening of March 7, were out walking their two dogs on the bike path at the end of Malaview Ave. I had fallen and hit my forehead on the sidewalk. Due to a muscular problem, I wasn’t able to get up. I’m so sorry that I didn’t get their names, but I’m truly grateful that they stopped to help me to get back on my feet.

A huge bouquet to the staff at the Saanich Peninsula Hospital, especially the staff on the south wing, for the care that they gave to my father during his two months there. His family is extremely grateful for their kindness and compassion.

My sincere thanks to the gentleman who found my wallet at the Fairway Market in Sidney on March 14 and turned it in. Your kindness is very much appreciated.

I would like to send a big beef to whoever stole my dog’s jacket.

On Saturday, March 17 around 3 p.m., while we were doing some gardening, our little King Charles Cavalier wandered off wearing her bright yellow and blue safety jacket. We suspect she was on the path behind our home in the Horth Hill – Readings/Hillgrove/Sumac area).

After noticing she was not nearby, we called her and she returned without her jacket. It would be impossible for her to remove the jacket by herself, it has a top zipper closure and is something she could not slip out of without assistance.

The jacket is bright yellow, water repellent, quilted fabric with a bright blue zipper, reflective trim, with a green crest on the chest, the make is Waghearted in size small. We think it’s despicable that someone would strip her of her jacket.  What a violation.
