Arrival Story:
I got Pilot from a rescue at the same time I got Ocean. He had been a stray, found injured (probably attacked by other dogs) under a car on a busy street.

Pilot was a sweet, quiet dog whose hobby was escaping. He chewed through or wriggled through or over an amazing number of containment structures -- by the time we were done, the backyard looked like Fort Knox! After all that effort, he never went any farther than around the block, though. Late in life he grew hard of hearing and had cataracts, and yet he still managed to escape and go on adventures -- the last time he wandered down a main street, over a bridge and across a busy traffic circle during morning rush hour, earning himself the nickname "Mr. Magoo." Pilot was pure black, although he did have a few white hairs in his old age. With his dark brown eyes, he was almost impossible to photograph!
