A couple of Friday's ago (5 Dec 2008), Jane and I left the gate open. Now usually Yogi doesn't go out the gate, but it had been left open too long and Yogi ran away. A nice couple about two miles from our house called me on Thursday and they had Yogi. It was a miracle! Until today, we hadn't heard from Yogi what happened. Here's the letter (he's a very smart dog) he wrote about his experience.
Dear Tanny and Jane,
I'm sorry I ran away last week. Sometimes we just get crazeeee notions in our heads I guess. I don't know what got into me. I just saw that opened gate and temptation overcame me and I ran. Let me tell you it was scary out there. After a couple of blocks I didn't know where I was or where I was going. I did know one thing, I had made a huge mistake. It was very cold, I was hungry with no food and cars were whizzing by so fast as I crossed three major thoroughfares, trembling with fear. It's a Christmas miracle that I didn't end up on the side of the road somewhere, injured or even worse!
I realize now, like never before, how fortunate and blessed we all are to have our wonderful warm homes, filled with family who love us so much, comfy beds, good food and each other.
Glad to be home.
