finally back from vacation and it was quite the whirlwind adventure
saw an awful lot of sights, ate some fabulous food and lost 5LBS to boot
Our dog Sadie (my avatar) decided that 2 days into her stay at my wife's aunt's house that she would go out and find us.
the garage door was opened for all of 30 seconds to take tha garbage out and Sadie ran outside, stopped and looked at my wife's aunt and just bolted away!
Our first inclination was to hop a plane right home but the dog sitter was incredible! she mobilized this huge search effort, checked animal services, the humane society and dog shelters daily, delivered flyers, pasted posters all over the place....
We figured that we really couldn't do much mor ourselves. We tried to keep the kids as busy as possible while we were away to keep their minds off of Sadie.
A few phone calls started coming in with possible sadie sightings but nobody could ever catch her (she is quite wary of people)
We arrived home last night about 11:30 pm and searched until 2:30 am with no luck.
Another call came in late last night with a sighting closer to aunties' home and then another call at 3:20 am with a sighting even closer.
My wife went and scoured the neighborhood this morning and found Sadie on her Aunt's street. Almost 2 weeks on her own and she returns right when we come back!!! amazing!!!
she was pretty stinky, thin and had some pretty bad matted hair but she was awfully happy!!!
she's sleeping at home now and that is the best thing of all about the vacation!
