> Today was a sunny but cold and very windy day. I went for a ride on the Vía
> Verde, the abandoned railroad track converted to a 22 km gravel path for
> cyclists and hikers. About 9 km after entering the trail, I happened on two
> dogs. One was just resting on the ground, the other one was walking around
> (but not straying far from his friend), as if looking for help. I was standing
> there, thinking about what to do, when two other cyclists came by. We were
> about 4-5 km from the town of Agost, otherwise in the middle of nowhere.
> But a call to the Agost police struck gold: someone had reported that their
> dogs had disappeared last night, and after sending phone picture the identity
> was confirmed. The dogs had wandered off the farm last night and then
> somehow entered the trail and could not find their way home; the had spent
> the whole night wandering around, and were hungry, dehydrated and tired.
> While we waited for the owners, we gave the doggies the water from our
> bottles, which they eagerly drank. And then a police car followed by the car
> of the owners appeared, and a happy reunion ensued. A good ending to a
> bad situation.
> While we waited, I took a quick snap of my fellow cyclists. At this point we
> had no more water for the dogs, so all we could do was to stay with them
> and comfort them. Fortunately, the wait was short.
