This is a great story. It reminds us that sometimes when days are their darkest, a little sunshine will sneak in out of nowhere!

Nine years ago, Dennis Geary and his family adopted a German Shepherd named Astro. Three weeks later he ran away. After awhile the Gearys did something most of us would do: they stopped looking. 

But they never stopped hoping.

For the longest time, the only thing Dennis Geary had to remind him of Astro was a microchip ID card that he never took out of his wallet. It was also the only reason that his youngest son, Mark, even knew Astro existed.

“I don’t remember him one bit,” said 12-year-old Mark Geary. “I was just like three years old.”

The Gearys only had Astro for three weeks while living in Port St. Lucie, Florida. “I took him out one night and he got away from me. He got out of his collar,” Dennis said. “I just never got him.”

Nine years, four moves, and five cities later, Astro’s microchip was scanned by a shelter in Tennessee.

Two days later, Astro was in his new Louisville home, with his old family. “Who knows where he’s been going,” said Mark.

Linda Geary, Dennis’s wife, says it’s something a little more. “Well I had a very, very rough year last year. I lost three very close family members. I was really torn up for the year. This has brought the light out of everything that happened.”

And it’s something a little more rare. “After all these years, how often do you get to do something twice?” asked Dennis. 

“No matter what’s going on out in the world there is hope,” Linda said. “There is a lot of hope.”
