While everyone else was celebrating the Fourth of July and enjoying themselves, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL star Katrina Bowden (Flo) was scared because she thought she had lost her beloved dog, Puffin forever! “Hugging my (almost) 10-year-old fur baby extra tight after the other night,” she shared on Instagram with a video of their tearful reunion. “He’s never run out on his own. He is the epitome of ‘inside dog’ and I’ve never been so terrified.
“I thought I had lost him forever,” the actress continued, “but was trying to stay positive and knew I did everything I could do in the moment. (Posted on all the apps, had 10 people hitting the streets for 17 hours, put up 100 flyers around the area… all of it.)”
Now that the ordeal is over and Puffin is home safe and sound, Bowden shared the details of exactly what happened and how she managed to bring her fur baby home again. “He was so scared of the fireworks and ran off when a door was left open for a few minutes,” the B&B actress explained. “A lovely human saw his fluffy butt running down the street so he stopped and picked him up — gave him food, water, and a house to sleep in until he discovered who Puffin belonged to. When Puffin was picked up, this lovely human came out and said, “Oh, he’s totally fine — he’s a really great dog!
“I prayed for him to be returned to me and am so thankful for good people out there,” Bowden declared. “Thank you to everyone who reposted, prayed, sent us love, reached out to me, and all who cared. I have read all of your messages — they have made my heart so full. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
We love a happy ending!
