My dog, Camielle, ran away today. My youngest son finally learned how to open the door. He had the door open for about 10 seconds and in that time we did not notice that dog ran out.
Well about 5 minutes later, we figured out that she was gone. I went outside and she wasn't anywhere close to the house.
I looked for about 3-4 hours around the neighborhood and told anyone that I came across that she was lost.
After about a half hour I began to be concerned, mainly because she never ran away. She is an indoor dog and doesn't have the sense for the outdoors.
Well, to make a long story short, I was ready to go in for the day, then someone pulled up next me and told me he saw a black dog near my complex.
I went down the block and there she was, all full of grass, sticks and debris. We were so happy. She's been with us for 8 years and it would be a shame if that was the way it ended.
