FIRST OFF, I JUST WANT TO SAY THANKS TO ALL THE WONDERFUL DOGSTERS OUT THERE WHO GAVE ME ROSETTES AND STARS. I READ EACH OF THEM AND AM TRULY GRATEFUL!
Dad was really worried when I ran off. I was exploring in a strange place and caught the scent of a spruce hen and just took off after that bird. He promptly flew away but I had no idea where I was. I understand that Dad was calling me but I`m hard of hearing as I am a senior dog and thus I couldn`t hear him calling me. I am a smart dog however and I decided to stay put in the area. It was getting dark and the Alaskan chill was getting to my old bones so I decided to seek shelter. I found a house just across the road from the campground and crawled into an open woodshed there. I basically holed up here for 2 nights, emerging only to take a drink from the nearby lake. The morning after my 2nd night being lost, the owner of the house returned and found me in his shed. He was very kind and gave me some food and fresh water,then called the number on my tag. He got Dad`s voice mail which had a message on it telling him to call the number of his friend in Alaska. This he did and Dad soon showed up to reclaim me! WOOFS, was I ever so happy. I`m sticking close to Dad for the rest of this trip no matter how interesting any scents are!
P.S. Dad and I will still be on the road for 2 more weeks as we wind up our Alaska trip. We still have to journey back down thru Canada to reach the lower 48. We`re using our friend`s computer in Sterling, Alaska but this may be our last computer access for a while. I`ll update as soon as possible.
