Sometimes, we come across stories that just tug at our heartstrings, and this one is no different. The tale of a furry little friend named BonBon, who miraculously survived a treacherous journey, will have pet owners everywhere holding their fur babies a little closer.
Kansas City Royals sports reporter, Carrie Lippert Gillaspie, was on her way to work when she heard a whimpering dog. She tried to find where the sounds were coming from and eventually discovered that the four-month-old Pomeranian Shitzu mix named BonBon was trapped inside the engine of a car.
Gillaspie recalls the moment she found BonBon in an interview vide with Insider Edition, “It stopped barking or whimpering ’cause it could hear me there…As soon as I stopped talking, it went right back to whimpering as if to say ‘Don’t leave me, I’m here.'”
BonBon had hitched a ride with one of Gillaspie’s colleagues, Ashley Newman, for 25 miles before being found. The pup was dehydrated and exhausted, but miraculously alive.
“She drank a whole bowl of water and then she just kind of fell over,” Gillaspie says.
As a pet owner, the thought of something happening to our dog or cat is unbearable. So, the fact that BonBon survived this ordeal is nothing short of a miracle. The joy and relief felt by BonBon’s owner upon being reunited with their beloved pet must have been overwhelming.
BonBon’s story is proof that miracles can happen, and that positive outcomes are always possible. We’re just happy the story had a happy ending!
