Now THAT is a story!
Hopefully Roger will be able to control Ike's need to run away...if that doggie could talk...

Great story! I love happy endings! That is my greatest fear, one of my dogs taking off and me not being able to find them!!! Lots of kooks out there waiting.......Thanks, Lone!

I'm so glad he got his dog back. I would die if my dog ran off..but then again I never take him off the leash unless we are playing frisbee in a private area and he's not one to stray far from his mommy :-) Dogs rock!

Im gland he got his dog back. My mom had a cat that went away for two years and came back, but that was by luck. Thank goodness we have the technology now to track our animals.

Thanks Ty...

Lauria H...I too would love to hear the stories from the DOG!!! I would be in such devistation if my little rescue got out and did run away...those types of things happen and people never knew what happened to their best friend - that would be a nightmare.

Hope this guy makes sure he is under better control from now own!

None of us are perfect and we all make mistakes, so I wont dwell on the 'Why was he of his lease if you knew he was prone to running away?'

It is obvious that he loves Ike and I am so glad that he was chipped and able to be reunited.

Thanks for posting.
