Tell ‘Em With Sleigh Bells At Granada Theater, Discuss The Dallas Music Scene At The Dallas Cultural Plan Meeting And Check Out Hot New Tech At The Central Dallas Library.

If you’re feeling the need for some feels today, then how about a story about a dog who found her way home after being lost for 10 years?

Abby the good pupper ran away from her family’s home in Apollo, Pennsylvania back in 2008. After the family searched for weeks, they assumed Abby had gone up to doggie heaven. The years passed and she ended up at a house 10 miles away.

The owner of that home called animal services and they matched Abby’s chip with her family. And she was reunited with her humans. Someone, it turns out, just took really good care of Abby when she ran away. And 10 years later, she’s back home, playing with the family’s 22-year-old daughter who completed middle school, high school and started college in the time Abby was lost.

So there are your good feels for the day. Think positive vibes today and cap all that off by heading out to one of these cool happenings in Dallas tonight.
