Funny Story: Lost Dog

My dog Zelda used to be very bad about trying to escape the yard to have fun exploring the neighborhood when she was much younger. She'd find every single weakness in the gate, and pull a Houdini. One early morning my mother tells me she was gone. I groan, and then get dressed to find her. I was expecting a long search, but right as I opened the front door she was lying on the porch waiting for us to open the door to let her back inside.

She explored the neighborhood and realized there wasn't anything out there better than home.

She realized there was no place like home, just like Dorothy.

We used to have a dog like yours. If we had the door open even just a little bit she'd take off like a racehorse. I used to go chasing after her shaking a box of treats. That worked most of the time.

I'm sure you were relieved to find her every time she got out.

She was loyal to her loved ones.

Our dog, Heidi, would escape and get into the neighbor's trash. The neighbor called the police on us. This was in the seventies...

Glad she didn't get far! And she knew her way back home!

She was a very smart, but independent dog, wasn't she?
