Community pulls together to help find dog



“We thought she’d be happy to see us. But she just kind of looked at us,” Bernardy said. “We were happy to see her, of course. I was very relieved and so exhausted. I wouldn’t let her out of my sight.”

Cocoa’s new-found bravery, it seems, may have rubbed off on her owner.

“I’m not one to go out and introduce myself,” she said. “But this has kind of changed me. É We have a good community.”

On Sunday night, to let the community know the status of the search for Cocoa, the Bernardys added an addendum to one of their signs, one of the more visible ones at the corner of Webster and Range.

Written across the flier were the words, “Found safe.”

And back home, Cocoa cuddled up with the Bernardys that night, sleeping between them in their bed.
