Thanks for finding our dog
We recently lost our dog, Zoe, deep in the woods in Grafton Notch State Park and I would like to thank three wonderful men who helped us find her again. Matt Hodgdon, park manager; Mike Pillsbury, park ranger; and Mike Smith, animal control officer in Bethel all went above and beyond the call of duty in trying to find Zoe. At one point we were giving up hope, when Matt Hodgdon called me and said that he had spotted her and then five minutes later that Mike Pillsbury had caught her; I was ecstatic. Mike Smith took her to his house while I drove up from Massachusetts. Not only did they "get the word out" through posting notices, talking to hikers, calling local agencies, etc., they all took a personal interest in our plight. They are caring men and I just can't thank them enough for their help and concern. After I put Zoe in the car, Mike Smith's daughter said, "I already miss Zoe." My daughter, who lives in Fort Stewart Ga. texted me, "It's nice to be reminded that there are still really nice people in the world." Yes, there are! The State Park and the Town of Bethel are fortunate to have men of such caliber working for them.
