PUPPY FOUND! After 2 hours and 45 minutes a wonderful neighbor (two streets over!) called and said that Nora was yelping on her back patio. It is a miracle the puppy survived outdoors in the cold that long. We are so grateful that we had a collar on her – I can’t tell you how many times I have thought about taking the collar off since she is never “out and about” on her own. As I mentioned earlier, Nora has never wandered off. All we can think of is that my two daughters and I were not home when she disappeared (we arrived home only minutes after my husband and step-son realized she was missing). Perhaps she was hungry and went looking for me (who always feeds her). Who knows? We are just so happy to have her home, and you can be sure she will be supervised outside from now on. Thanks to all of you for your care and concern. Karri
