The Woman went outside to water her Mums this afternoon, and what did she see but one of the neighbor dogs (Aurora) sitting in the front yard. The Woman tried to put her back in the fenced yard, but she ran away and hid under some bushes. Despite coaxing and several growls from Aurora, the Woman was not able to get her back through the gate. She was afraid of getting bit if she tried to force Aurora out from under the bush, so she took the neighbor's other dog (Rudy) and put him in the yard with me. (Woot for me - I like guests.) She then opened the neighbor's gate and went back in the house, hoping Aurora would find her way back into the fenced yard. A couple minutes later, the Woman saw Aurora go back into the gate, so she ran over and shut it before the dog could escape again. I had some fun time playing with Rudy. We need to have another play date soon.

Here are Rudy and Aurora in their yard. Rudy is the brown one.

And here's me being cute.

So, it seems that this story is over and ended happily with the loose dog being secured and everyone going on their merry way ... but ... there is more ...

When the neighbor lady (Nina) came home, the Woman told her what had happened, and the neighbor lady asked where her other dog, Sadie, was. The Woman didn't realize Sadie was supposed to be there too. You see, Sadie and Aurora are actually the neighbor's son's dogs and they don't always visit together, because they are real trouble makers when they are together. So, Nina went in the house and called her son to see if Sadie had been dropped off today, and she had, but now she was missing. The Woman and Nina went looking for Sadie and found her pretty quickly. Everyone is now safe and sound back where they belong.

Here's a movie of Aurora celebrating her sister's safe return.

OK, she's not really celebrating. She barks like this all day long. It really drives the Woman quite mad.

    Goodboy Norman, your Woman is in the rescue business and that's always a good thing.

    I am so thankful your Woman home to help them get back to safety. I hate to see dogs running lose.

    Marvelous picture of you Norman!
