Ever have one of those dogs that does something, and you have NO idea how she or he ever knew how to do it or why they did it in the first place?
Meet Tyson the terrier. Well, that’s ONE of the names he’s known by.
For some reason, Tyson wanted to ride the Irish rails and just boarded the train one day for a tidy little jaunt about the countryside. Only thing is, when Tyson decided to disembark, no one knew how he got on the train and certainly had no clue as to who he was. No owner present, so Tyson, (name unknown to those around him), was taken in by the nice folks at Irish Rail, renamed “Hamish”, and the search began to find his family.
In the interim, because they couldn’t keep him at the Rail offices, they rang up help from a local farm rescue. Of course, they had never seen anything like this little guy amidst all the horses. But Tyson, that ever so calm and unruffled demeanor, fit right in.
I’m not a huge fan of social media anymore, what with all the nastiness it seems to foment in almost every case. However, every now and then, social media gets it right.
Like this time.
It took awhile, but Tyson is back home. His long journey still a mystery as to why he decided to board that train, and one can only imagine how many people looked at this little terrier and wondered what he was doing there in the first place.
In the end, it was all about the little terrier who wanted an adventure, and the wonderful people that dedicated themselves to seeing that his adventure wound up right back home.
Oh, and that’s AFTER Tyson has now received his brand new microchip. Thouse no word if he qualifies for his owner frequent riders pass.
